We normally get our suet fat balls from the RSPB. Slightly more expensive I know but it terms of overall diameter they are certainly bigger and heavier. I reckon that from them each ball weighs in at approx 90-95g's. These fat balls are very small. I would guess, and it is a guess, that these fat balls weigh about 75-80g's per ball. Take that together with the wastage factor, that is to say the number of crushed suet balls at the base of the very primitive cardboard delivery box that they are packaged in, and it works out certainly more expensive that perhaps another brand sold here on Amazon, or indeed from the RSPB, at around 17p per ball. For the price we paid it does not take a genius to work out that these smaller fat balls work out at exactly 16p per fat ball, incl p+p, and assuming that there are indeed 150 fat balls in the box, given that they all appear to be all thrown in there with a rather excessive amount of fat ball crumbs together with crushed balls in the bottom of the box .... which I assume is from initial packaging and then from the parcel postage factor. The consistancy of these fat balls appears stale. Just like stale dry cake which crumbles to the touch. Not that impressed but they are getting eaten .... but rather to quickly as they are very dry for 'fat' suet balls. Anyway cheap and cheerful springs to mind as it does not take much effort for the birds to split these fat balls with the excess falling to the ground from our hanging feeders rather to freely. I suspect that these fat balls will need replacing very quickly. We shall stick with the heavier and more 'solid fat balls' in future for the small amount of additional cost involved. The free 'fat ball feeder' is a gimmick and as such is rubbish. IMHO of coarse.

UPDATE.

These were quite soft and crumbled . So a large quantity were just mush in the bottom of the box. Would not recommend them

These are cheaper than fat balls bought locally from garden centres or pet shops and the birds certainly love them. They encourage into the garden every type of tit, reed buntings, greater spotted woodpecker,etc. Blackbirds have mastered the art of clinging on to the feeders and we even get a jay visiting us regularly to feed on the balls. Yes - some are messy eaters but what they drop is eaten by ground feeding birds.
Excellent service from 'twootz' too. We received our order a mere 27 hours of placing theorder via amazon.co.uk

Great product at a very reasonable price. Have searched many websites and compared this product but found none quite so reasonably priced. Will re-order in future.

They were a very good price and delivered directly to my front door. I prefer these at balls fas they do not have the green plastic netting on them which i always have to take off. They are of a reasonable quality (as good as most others i have tried) and the birds devour them in record time.

I should have heeded the warnings of the other reviewers who said the packaging on these was woeful. It is. They come in a plastic bag in a cardboard box that is not particularly sturdy. I would say that 25% of the balls are just a crushed mess. I didn't realise that providing decent packaging for a crushable product would be beyond an amazon seller, but sadly it is. I would avoid unless you want your fat balls in a crumbed variety. Which, given you are buying fat BALLS not crumbs, you probably don't. On the plus side the ones that aren't crushed have the birds in the fat ball holder as much as any other brand I have used.

These are great value for money and as they are not wrapped in nylon net are very convenient to use. The birds love them and so do I (to use not to eat).

I have knocked off two stars because the birds don't seem to like these fat balls. Maybe it's the time of year and most have fledged elsewhere but, from getting through 4 fat balls every 2 days (bought locally), they have still to finish 4 of these after a week ! Certainly on quantity they are a bargain but if the birds aren't going to eat them- not so much of one. After all - what can one do with 150 fat balls that the birds won't eat ? Maybe we have very picky birds around here and they just got used to the taste of the locally sourced ones ?! However, 'm going to do a little experiment and get some more from our local supplier, then alternate them in the feeding tube - one of these, one of the local ones, one of these etc. Then see what happens. So, quantity, delivery and packaging great. Taste - that's down to the birds - I will let you know.
