Graze Subscription Review + Free Box Coupon – April 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.)

This month I also received a $5 voucher to use in Graze’s online shop.
Antioxidant Vitamin E Nuts
This first snack is a combination of brazil nuts, almonds, pecans, and salted peanuts. Overall, this mix is straightforward, lightly salted, and great as a mid-afternoon snack.
My first reaction when trying this new Graze snack was, “Oh, this is gooood!” This sweet snack is a combination of raspberry strings, vanilla cookies, and raspberry cranberries and almonds. I love bad-for-you jelly-filled doughnuts, so this is a nice option, slightly better for me. There’s still 14g of sugar in this container, so I will enjoy sparingly.
Sour Cream & Onion Cashews
Cashews are already good on their own, but the sour cream and onion flavor really takes them up a notch! The cashews themselves are whole and similar to the other mixed nuts snack, this quickly curbs any mid-afternoon hunger. And there are 7 grams of protein!
Eleanor’s Apple Crumble
I’m quickly learning that I don’t care for Graze options that include dried apple pieces. This snack was full of apple, cinnamon, and almond flavor, but the apples’ texture is odd to me. Despite being a good source of vitamin E and manganese, this snack has 19 grams of sugar. That is enough for me to “trash” this on my Graze profile.
Wow, I think this is my favorite this month! Peach Cobbler is a mix of peach fruit drops, almonds, yogurt seeds, and amaretti drops. And this is such a wonderful blend of flavors. There’s a slight vanilla crunch blended with soft and sweet peach – so good!
Cacao & Orange with Almonds
This next snack is a mix of dates, raw almonds, and strips of cacao and orange. Graze notes this as a new superfood option and a great source of fiber. Although I like this snack, I can’t help but notice that this snack also has a high amount of sugar (19 grams).
Cocoa Cookies and Special Blend Black Tea
I received two cookie and tea snacks this month and the first is a cocoa cookie with black tea. The cocoa cookie was pretty good – dry and crunchy, but full of cocoa and oatmeal flavor. The tea was pretty straightforward and made for a nice evening snack.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Special Blend Black Tea
The second cookie and tea combination consists of an oatmeal raisin cookie and the same kind of tea. The cookie was okay. It was also quite dry and crumbled quickly. To be honest, I’m not the biggest tea fan, so it’s a bummer that I received two snacks with it this month.
Verdict: Overall, this was a solid month from Graze. I received five new-to-me and enjoyable snacks and a few that I would prefer to not receive again. But the great part is that this subscription is completely customizable and I can rate what I like and don’t like for future shipments. For $13.99 shipped, I received 8 different snacks, which breaks down to $1.75 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).
