Graze Subscription Box Review + Free Box Coupon – Mar 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Graze-March-2016-Box

Graze is a mini-snack subscription box that sends a customized selection of treats weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. They offer over 100 different snacks that you can rate online, which, over time, helps tailor your subscription to your particular snacking preferences.

For subscribers with food sensitivities, it’s easy to trash snacks that contain gluten, dairy, or any other specific ingredient; however, Graze snacks are produced in a facility with nuts, wheat, milk, and many other foods that might not make this subscription a good fit for anyone with severe food allergies.

Boxes are shipped via USPS and are conveniently designed to fit in most standard mailboxes.

Graze-March-2016-FoldOut1

Each box comes with a personalized fold out card that provides tips from Graze’s nutritionist and information about the Graze rewards program.

The back of the personalized fold out card has nutritional info, ingredients, and expiration dates for each snack.

Graze-March-2016-Dippers

Protein Cashew Kick

The fold out card that accompanied this box cast a spotlight on the importance of protein, so I’m not at all surprised to see some protein-heavy snacks in this box! This one is a mix of chili lime cashews, spicy chickpeas, and garlic sesame sticks, and it contains a whopping 6 g. of protein.

Wholegrain Banana Caramel Dippers

I say this in every review, but Graze’s dippers are a favorite in my household. We like pretty much all of them, but the Banana Caramel Dippers are my husband’s all-time favorite Graze snack. These were gone seconds after I snapped the photo.

Graze-March-2016-Bagel

New York Everything Bagel

Graze’s New York Everything Bagel snack consists of poppy seed onion sesame sticks, and they really do taste like an everything bagel!

Sweet Memphis Barbecue

This snack is another protein-heavy choice, with 7 g. per packet. I really like the mix of barbecue peas, salsa peanuts, and wild rice sticks. This might be one of my new favorites!

Graze-March-2016-Flapjack

Pumpkin Spice Flapjack

It’s a little odd, I think, to see pumpkin snacks popping up in March, but maybe that’s just me. To be fair, they’re not pumpkin-y at all, and the spice blend is yummy.

Eleanor’s Apple Crumble

I always get a kick out of Graze’s deconstructed dessert snacks, and I’ll admit that I like eating all of the components together to see if they really do taste like their inspiration. In this case, I’m not sure that the soft apple pieces, raisins, and cinnamon honey almonds actually taste like apple crumble, but they are tasty.

Graze-March-2016-Peaches

Peaches and Cream

Peaches and Cream is another one of my Graze favorites. It’s a mix of passion fruit, white chocolate, peach drops, coconut, and yogurt seeds.

Strawberries and Cream Protein Granola Topper

This is my second or third time receiving a “granola topper” from Graze. I really like the idea of them in theory (yogurt + topper= breakfast!), but neither my husband nor seem to be that excited about eating them. I might have to adjust my preferences to let Graze know not to send them anymore.

VerdictGraze is one of the first subscription boxes I ever signed up for, and it’s still one of my favorites! The single-serve snack packs are a great size, and they’re perfect for tossing into my handbag for eating on the go. My favorite things about Graze, though, are the quality of the snacks and their wide selection of flavors. They have so many different treats that I never get bored!

  1. I always think about getting this sub. What is the cost break down, are the snacks worth this price? Or would I be better off buying these in larger quantities from someplace else? They seem like nice, unique, and healthier snacking options for us.

    • I did the free sample box and I am completely impressed. Now I have to figure out if I should/can pay that much on snacks each month!! If I could afford the $12 a week on snacks I would totally do it! If you find similar snacks for cheaper please let me know. These are very good though & super fresh and the cookies are soft. Amazingness.

  2. This is more action than the graze posts usually get, lol. I’ve been a subscriber for over a year I think. I now get one 8 piece box every month and I occasionally order an extra box here or there. I’m not really a fan of the flap jacks or bc they just seem like granola bars to me and I wouldn’t pay over $1 for 1 bar. I love most of the ones that include nuts, dried fruit and seeds. One of my favorites is the punchy protein mix. Oh, and ANY of the ones with white chocolate buttons are amazing!

  3. I’m glad I could help give you the extra little push towards another box. However, I don’t know how you could take my comment to mean I don’t know about healthy eating and consuming small meals throughout the day. I am a vegetarian and very pro-snack. I like the idea of a portion controlled snack subscription. What I have a problem with is the term graze as it is now used. I am not a cow. I don’t eat off the ground. I don’t graze. I won’t order a sub box called Graze even if I like the concept. It feels insulting to me. I hope you enjoy your new subscription.

    • “Graze” doesn’t only refer to cows. That’s why I posted the relevant definition below. There are other definitions that apply to humans which are clearly the applicable ones in this context. I have been reading some British novels lately and I have seen a few words used in contexts (usually modern slang) that I don’t understand (I’d post an example but the only one that occurs to me at the moment is vulgar in American English and thus inappropriate for this site). Rather than just taking the meaning I know, if it doesn’t make sense to me, I go look it up and learn something new!

      Lots of English words have many different definitions depending on context (for example, “cup” could refer to a unit of liquid measurement, an actual drinking cup, bra size, cupping one’s hands to hold something, or “in his cups” which is an expression that has to do with being drunk — obviously not all of those apply in all situations — and “organic” can refer to organic farming/gardening or organic chemistry which is most definitely not the same thing since most pesticides are organic compounds in the chemical sense, just to name a few examples).

  4. I just received my second box and I’m loving it! I trashed everything that I knew I wouldn’t want on the day I signed up, and I haven’t received any of those items. I received the Pumpkin Spice Flapjack in my first box and loved it. The Banana Caramel Dippers are my favorite so far. I could receive eight of those and wouldn’t complain at all!

  5. It doesn’t matter how good this box may be I would never subscribe based on the highly offensive name. I’m not giving you money to insult me.

    • ummmm. I’m really confused, what are you so offended by? Its not like they named it “you’re a fat cow box” or anything.
      Are you extra sensitive about being compared to animals? because anthropomorphising is a pretty common part of the human identity.

      • Anthropomorphizing is giving human attributes or characteristics to animals not the other way around. If my cat meows and I think how cute he just said Mama, that would be anthropomorphism. Giving animal characteristics to humans is entirely different and in my opinion almost never a good idea. I realize the word graze has transformed in our language from being what cows and sheep do in a field to also mean human’s eating smaller portions throughout the day but I don’t have to like that change. To me the term grazing used that way IS as insulting as calling someone a cow. You don’t have to agree.

    • I’m just curious, what’s offensive about it?

      • Yeah, I don’t get it either. Google says:

        graze
        /ɡrāz/
        verb

        (of a person) eat small quantities of food at frequent but irregular intervals.

        and

        casually sample something.

    • I cannot fathom in any way how this boxes name is offensive. Are you aware that “grazing”, or eating small amounts of food several times a day is actually the most healthy way to eat? Your comment just helped me take the plunge for another box. I have wanted this for awhile. Just was looking for a justification for another one. Thank you for the push. I now just have to support a healthy box of snacks that support a healthy way of eating,

      • I’m glad I could help give you the extra little push towards another box. 🙂 However, I don’t know how you could take my comment to mean I don’t know about healthy eating and consuming small meals throughout the day.
