Graze Sweet Treat Box Review + Free Box Coupon – August 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.)

Summer Berry Compote
The berry compote used for dipping the shortbread is made with raspberries, blackcurrants, and strawberries making it ‘berry’ sweet! The compote mixed with the shortbread was incredible and tasted exactly like a pop-tart. I would eat this for breakfast as a healthier version every day if I could!
This snack mixture was just ok for me, peanuts and almonds together made me very thirsty! I think each on their own would have been better because I really loved the almonds and you can’t beat a pretzel snack. I didn’t get a strong cinnamon flavor from either, and I thought the roasted honey almonds could have been a little sweeter for a nice sweet and salty mix.
Whole Grain Banana Caramel Dippers
I loved this little dessert – not too big, not too small! The shortbread had a crumbly texture that was bursting with banana flavors that I can only compare to banana bread. The dipping sauce didn’t have a strong caramel flavor to it, but it had a rich texture and sweetness that I loved. This was a lovely after dinner treat!
Cocoa Cookies and Tea
I loved that this cookie set came with a single bag of black tea and was a delicious pairing! The tea was an afternoon delight blend which tasted like a lighter black tea that had a nice bite to it. I really thought I would love this cookie because it is basically covered in cocoa powder, but I think that was the part that I didn’t like. It was just a lot of the powder, plus the cookie is very crumbly so it was a lot in one bite.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Tea
Another adorable tea and cookie set, and I am not complaining! These oatmeal cookies were so delicious! The oats had a lightly toasted sweetness to it and crumbled with every bite. The raisins gave it that extra layer of flavor that I loved, and mixed with the warmth of the tea this was just so decadent!
Honey Drizzled Cashews
I could have eaten an entire bag of these, omg they were so good! There was a thick but not overpowering crunchy layer on top of the cashews that tasted like crystallized honey. It was that perfect amount of sweetness, and then you get the nice creamy flavor from the cashews. This was the perfect afternoon treat!
I can’t explain these in any other way than healthier tasting fruit snacks. There were three flavors in this box of rhubarb slices, pear, and peach fruit drops. Each had a very strong fruit flavor that tasted very fresh! The peach tasted like it had a lot of sugar, so I wasn’t surprised to see that this snack has 21 grams of sugar in it. These were like eating candy, which I loved, but the amount of sugar made me not want to gobble down the whole packet too quickly.
Baobab Raspberry Coconut Dusters with Apple and Pumpkin Seeds
I am not a huge raspberry fan, and this mix has a very strong and sweet raspberry flavor to it. I really enjoyed the mix more when I took a bigger mix of each dried fruit, you can’t beat the apple pieces and pumpkin seeds! Overall, this had a lot of great flavors and crunch – the perfect snack on the go for some extra energy!
Verdict: I really enjoyed this month’s Graze sweet treats, and I rarely meet a dessert type snack that I don’t love! Each packet had a nice mixture of ingredients and flavors, some sweeter than others, but all around very yummy. I really liked that I could see myself enjoying each snack at different times throughout my day, one would be more of a breakfast while another would be more for a quick pick me up in the afternoon. Each snack comes in such a great size too that you don’t feel guilty indulging in these treats! You also get so many, 8 total, customizable snacks that the $13.99 value seems like a great deal!
