Graze Subscription Review + Free Box Coupon – March 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.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Graze’s Popping Corn
The first snack I opened was this microwaveable popcorn. The leaf symbol on the top right corner indicates this snack is a good source of dietary fiber, something I’ve never associated with popcorn before.
The size of the popcorn is roughly half your typical store brands. Despite the instructions suggesting two minutes of microwave time, I noticed kernels less frequently popped at 1:20 minutes. When I opened the microwave door, the popcorn was smoking! I definitely left it in too long and some of the pieces were burnt.
Aside from some burned popcorn, I really enjoyed the taste. It’s lightly salted which I prefer but had a nice, light flavor. I will definitely “love” this in my preferences!
Strawberries and Cream Protein Granola Topper
I really enjoyed this granola mix. It’s mildly sweet and tastes healthy, but not bland. In addition to granola, yogurt-coated strawberry and strawberry pieces are mixed in. The strawberries taste similar to those in Special K Red Berries cereal – a bit tart but really good! This is noted as a “new” snack, with 4 grams of protein and 130 calories.
Natural Vanilla Seeds
This snack is comprised of vanilla pumpkin and sunflower seeds. The vanilla makes this snack for me! Sure, pumpkin and sunflower seeds are a quick, enjoyable snack, but the subtle vanilla coating takes it up a notch. The only downside is that there are 12 grams of fat in this snack, which is 18% of my daily value.
After reading Lindsey’s review, I was so excited to see this snack included! There’s a combination of mustard breadsticks, cheddar bruschetta, and smoked cashews. And I’m not kidding, you taste all of these flavors in one bite. So good!
Energizing Almond Carrot and Apple
This snack is a combination of almonds, carrot and orange chews, and apple pieces. Out of the bunch, this is my least favorite. The orange chews are nice and sweet, but the rest of the ingredients are a bit bland for my liking.
Garden of England
Garden of England is a mix of strawberries, apple pieces, and black currants. This snack is only 80 calories and the equivalent to 1/2 cup of fruit. I like the taste too. All three fruits blend nicely together (although the mini strawberries are my favorite!).
Pizza Margherita is a combination of basil crunchini, cheese cashews, and mini tomato breadsticks. Similar to the grilled cheese, This snack packs a lot of savory punch. The crunchini and cashews are pretty large (around 1″), so it didn’t seem as if this snack was as full and I was able to finish it in a couple handfuls.
Chocolate Pretzel Dippers
Last but not least are the chocolate pretzels dippers. I received nine pretzel sticks and was able to dip them each with ample chocolate. The combination is good! The pretzels are not overly salty and more similar to breadsticks. The dip is a mix of cocoa and hazelnut and not overly sweet.
Verdict: I really enjoyed this 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).
