Graze Subscription Review + Free Box Coupon – February 2017
Graze is a mini-snack subscription box that sends a customized selection of treats weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
Graze offers over 100 different snacks that you can rate online, which, over time, helps tailor your subscription to your particular snacking preferences. I spent some time choosing preferences, noting which options I wanted to try, think I would like, or “trash” and prefer not to receive. That being said, your Graze box may look completely different!
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.
After removing all of the snacks, there was a vegan buddha bowl recipe suggestion, noting which item you can find at Graze. I am a habitual day and night snacker, so I was super excited to sign-up for Graze (this is my first box)!

Each box comes with a personalized booklet that provides nutritional facts for each of the snacks in your box, along with a few coupons. They also provided “snackspiration” for a healthier 2017, which I could use more of! Now on to the snacks!
Sweet Mustard Ranch
This was my hands down favorite snack! I typically reach for sweet snacks before savory, but I really enjoyed the ranch and sour cream flavoring mixed with the pretzels, onion cashews, and mustard breadsticks. There was enough of this mix to satisfy my 3 pm snack break.
Peachy Orchard is a mix of peach drops, rhubarb, and pear. The peach drops taste better than supermarket dried fruit and healthier than fruit snacks or gummies. And these little drops pack a lot of punch! Combined with the rhubarb and pear, this sweet snack is another winner!
Cookies & Cream
I was most excited to try this snack because I’m a chocolate junkie and of course immediately thought of Oreos and cookies & cream ice cream while scrolling the Graze site. In addition to white chocolate buttons, cocoa cookies, and cocoa fudge, sunflower seeds are mixed in. The seeds are unsalted, so they mainly add some extra crunch (and small source of protein) when eating all the ingredients at the same time. I almost always eat something sweet after each meal, and this one did not disappoint after lunch.
Lemon Almond Cookies
I love anything lemon but found these cookies to just be OK. The lemon is combined with almonds, oat, and spelt (a type of wheat). They are on the dry side and bland for my taste buds but are healthy and a nice combination with the provided black tea. I will likely “trash” this snack so I do not receive it in the future.
This snack is a combination of poppyseed pretzels and cinnamon honey almonds. I liked this a lot! There’s a strong cinnamon flavor, but mixed with the unsalted pretzel makes for a nice after dinner treat.
Fantastic Forest Fruits
Fantastic Forest Fruits is a combination of blueberries, lingonberries, soft apple pieces, and cherry raisins. It’s a healthy sweet alternative, but I really just tasted the raisin and didn’t particularly care for the texture of the apples. My husband tried this one and couldn’t put it down, so I’m happy it didn’t go to waste.
Baobab & Raspberry Clusters
The colors of this snack are so pretty! Unfortunately, I didn’t care for this at all, likely again because of the apple pieces. Mixed with the pumpkin seeds and raspberry clusters, this snack left an unpleasant aftertaste. One thing I absolutely love about the packaging is all the call-outs and key points illustrated. Baobab powder is a great source of fiber and the packaging notes this snack is “a good source of copper for healthy skin.” On the downside, this snack has 4.5 grams of saturated fat and a February 27th expiration date.
Caramel Apple Dippers
Last but not least are the caramel apple dippers. I mentioned above not really caring for the texture of the dried apples in two other snacks, but dipped in this caramel sauce is a different ballgame. This is the sweetest snack in the bunch and although I didn’t think there would be enough sauce, I was able to enjoy each apple piece dipped in a nice amount.
Verdict: I am happy with my first Graze box! For $11.99 shipped, I received 8 different snacks, which breaks down to $1.50 a snack (the majority of containers are under 1oz.). Comparing price/oz. to supermarket organic snacks, this seems a bit higher in my opinion. However, for the most part, Graze provides healthy alternatives to the junk food I crave, so I am willing to pay more for a variety of higher quality snacks delivered to my house each month (or weekly or bi-weekly if I choose).
