Graze review

Graze is a subscription service that, for $6, sends healthy snacks to your home or office. You can choose with which frequency you want to receive shipments, either once a week, or once every two weeks. The company recently ran a deal in which a new subscriber could get his or her first box for free, so I jumped right on top of that and subscribed to the once-every-two-weeks plan. I was able to rate Graze's more than 100 snack offerings to determine which I would prefer to receive, and which I absolutely didn't want to receive. Because the company provides complete descriptions of the ingredients that go into every snack, I was able to avoid those that contained chocolate, to which I'm allergic. (I'd imagine that people with peanut/tree nut allergies will also find this aspect of the company's website useful.)

Anyway, enough talk. Without further ado, here's my Graze box:

And here's what I found when I opened it:

Commence the rumbling of my stomach.

I received the following snacks:

1. Twist of Black Pepper popping corn. I haven't tried this yet, but it looks like yum, so I can't wait to toss it into the microwave.

2. Hot Cross Yum. This is a mixture of cinnamon-and-honey almonds, orange-infused raisins, and sponge pieces (which reminded me of miniature Nilla wafers). I dipped into this last night, and it was awesome, especially the almonds.

3. Strawberry Shortcake. This contained pistachio kernels, strawberry drops, yogurt-coated strawberry pieces, and sponge pieces. I enjoyed this one, too, but thought it was just a tad bland. However, that might have been because I had just finished sampling the "Hot Cross Yum," so I was coming off a cinnamon-almond high.

4. Vegetable Power. This little guy consisted of black-pepper cashews, spicy chickpeas, and edamame beans. I loved it! Definitely my favorite of the bunch. I don't normally like spicy food, but this had just enough of a kick to it without burning off my tongue.


My first Graze shipment was a complete success! I love how subscribers are able to customize their boxes while still maintaining an element of surprise as to which items will appear in their shipments. The food is all very high quality, and the packages contain complete nutritional information. Graze offers two types of boxes: the Nibble Box, which offers the most variety in terms of the snack items that you'll receive, and the Calorie Counter Box, which contains snacks from 50 to 150 calories.

If you're interested in checking out Graze Box, head over to the website (Graze subscription link) and use my referral code (TONYAB2MP) to receive your first and fifth Graze boxes for free!
