Graze Subscription Review + Free Box Coupon – October 2016
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.

Eleanor’s Apple Crumble
My mom makes a mean apple crumble, so this snack has serious nostalgic appeal for me. It’s a mix of soft apple pieces, caramelized honey and cinnamon almonds, and raisins. While it certainly doesn’t come close to the real thing, I’m a fan of this snack. The honey cinnamon almonds are particularly delicious.
Vitamin C Crush
This tropical fruit blend is a combination of mango, pineapple pieces, and coconut flakes. I really like both dried pineapple and mango, so this snack is right up my alley.
Peanut Butter & Jelly
Graze’s take on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich consists of baked salted peanuts, vanilla fudge, and raspberry fruit strings. I’d never think to put little cubes of vanilla fudge in a snack inspired by a pb&j, but it’s a great addition that brings to mind the creaminess of peanut butter.
Baobab & Raspberry Clusters
Graze regularly releases new snacks, and it looks like this is from a new line of “supersnacks”! Baobab is new to me, but it’s a really fascinating fruit. It’s packed with nutrients, and the pulp that’s located inside the hard outer shell is dry and brittle. In this snack, Graze incorporates baobab fruit into crunchy clusters of raspberry and coconut and mixes them with soft apple pieces and pumpkin seeds. I like this snack a lot, and it’s fun to see Graze seeking out exotic new ingredients.
Tuscan Pesto Kern Pops
This snack is a mix of cheddar flavored popped corn kernels and mini basil breadsticks. I’m pretty much always craving carbs, so I really like this snack. The flavor is great.
Beet Chips w/ Jalapeno, Chickpeas, & Sunflower Seeds
This is another supersnack from Graze’s new line, but I’m not sure I like it as much as the baobab clusters… It’s a combination of beet chips, jalapeño chickpeas, and sunflower seeds. The beet chips are sweet and crunchy, but Graze loses me a bit with the jalapeño chickpeas. It’s an interesting flavor combo, but I don’t think it’s for me.
Banana Caramel Dippers
Banana Caramel Dippers are one of my all time favorite Graze snacks, and I’d be happy if they were included in every single one of my boxes. The soft, banana-flavored cookies are delicious with the rich and sweet caramel. Yum!
Green Tea & Cherry Almond Bites
It appears that this is yet another of Graze’s new snacks!
I like the idea of receiving tea and cookies, and the Cherry Almond Bites in this packet are chewy, sweet, and delicious. My husband and I are big tea drinkers, though, so we always have a well-stocked selection of teas. I’d think I’d rather have a full-sized snack and provide my own tea bag, so I’ve adjusted my preferences to make sure I don’t receive this snack again. I highly recommend it, though, for anyone who enjoys the occasional cup of tea and likes the idea of pre-packed tea and cookie pairings.
Verdict: I’m always happy to see my Graze box arrive in the mail! It’s one of the first subscription boxes I ever signed up for, and it’s still one of my favorites. I like the wide variety of snacks, and I appreciate how easy it is to update my preferences online (so I can “trash” any snacks that I don’t like or that pop up too regularly). The single-serve snack packs are a great size, and they’re perfect for tossing into my handbag for eating on the go. For the 8-snack box ($11.99 per month), the per snack breakdown is $1.50. I’m happy with that!
