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.

This is a review of the specialized “Sugar Count” box which contains snacks with 5 grams of sugar and under.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The box is twice as thick to hold the extra 4 snacks, and it has a double layered tray system. This is the top tray of snacks.

And here is the bottom tray. We’ve never had an issue fitting it in the mailbox, which is great!

Liz and I have been trying to reduce out sugar for well over a year now. We got rid of all sugar from drinks, and have done well with food as well – so we thought this might be a good box to get. My favorite Graze snacks are typically the sugary ones, ie.e flapjacks, so I hope I can find a new favorite.

Punchy Protein Nuts

Zesty Lime & Red Pepper Salsa

Grilled Cheese

Southwestern Corn Crunch

I wasn’t surprised when my attention was immediately on the Grilled Cheese snacks, and WOW, they are delicious and easily my favorite savory snack from Graze. There was only one snack in here that I was not a fan of, and it was the Protein Nuts – I just didn’t like the taste. I was also pleasantly surprised by the red pepper salsa with the pita chips – delicious!

Soy Roasted Seeds

Tuscan Pesto Kern Pops

Lousiana Wil Rice & Beans

Sweet Mustard Ranch

I love the Sweet Mustard Ranch mix, but I wish it had a bit more mustard taste. Even so, it’s my second favorite of the entire box. The other three in this group were okay, but not favorites.

Verdict: I had hoped to find some less-sugary favorites this month and Graze delivered! Some don’t like the serving size of Graze snacks but it works for me, personally. Usually, when I find some snack I love, I will eat it without even thinking, so I appreciate that the smaller portions stop me from that, especially with my favorites.

What did you think of the Graze “Sugar Count” box?

  1. Once I picked a few favorites from Graze I wanted to buy a sharing box of those faves (to prevent hitting the company’s very unhealthy vending machine) only to discover that the sharing boxes are gone. However Graze is testing an option to allow subscribers to buy six packs or bags of their favorite snacks. It’s still in the works but for those with food sensitivities who can’t or don’t want to play snack roulette you can have an option. Hope it pans out!

  2. Thank you so much for posting this review! I was hesitant about getting a Graze subscription box for my boyfriend’s father as a birthday present, but after reading your review I think I made a good decision to subscribe. I signed up for the sugar count box because he’s diabetic.

  3. I should probably reduce my sugar intake too. I am trying. I certainly don’t add sugar to things, don’t drink sugary drinks, and don’t eat many baked goods any longer. But I find the snacks that disappear from my Graze box first are the sweet ones…last night my fiance and I shared a flapjack and some dried fruit. Now there are only savory snacks left.

    • Liz and I are with you. As much as we try…those coconut covered marshmallows from POPSUGAR were gone in a flash.

  4. I’ve gotten the Louisiana Wild Rice & Beans. I didn’t think it was anything to write home about and would give it a just ok as well. It did taste of rice and beans. But I was surprised that I found it to be bland. I would love to try the grilled cheese. I hope it pops up in one of my boxes soon.
