Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review #1 + Free Box Coupon – October 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

 

Graze 8 Snack Variety Box September 2017 - 0001

Graze is a 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, what I might like, and what I wanted to “trash” and not to receive. That being said, your Graze box may look completely different than mine!

For subscribers with food sensitivities, it’s easy to “trash” snacks that contain gluten, dairy, or other ingredients. However, Graze snacks are produced in a facility with nuts, wheat, milk, and many other foods—if you have serious sensitivities or allergies, this box might not be for you.

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 review is for the 8-Snack box, which is $13.99 a month.

Graze Popping Corn Lightly Salted – Value $1.50 (Buy 6 for $8.99 on Graze)

I’ve never received a bag of popcorn in a Graze box before. What a fun little surprise! The bag was the perfect size for a late night snack. I received the lightly salted flavor. It’s nothing fancy—just really delicious popcorn with that lovely hint of salt!

Whole Grain Banana Caramel Dippers – Value $1.50 (Buy 6 for $8.99 on Graze)

I’ve received this snack in other boxes, and it is, hands down, my favorite Graze snack! The caramel is not too thick and has just the right amount of sweetness. The dippers have a wonderful banana flavor that mixes so nicely with the caramel, and I love that I feel sort of healthy eating them since they are made with whole grains. I wish I could receive a whole box just of these!

Vitamin C Crush – Value $1.50 (Buy 6 for $8.99 on Graze)

I really wish I liked coconut because so many snack boxes come with items packed full of it. I had to avoid the coconut chunks in this one just because it was way too overpowering, but I really loved the mix of dried mango and pineapple pieces. Each bite had a tropical flavor to it with a light sweetness. This is the type of snack that, if I liked coconut more, I could see being delicious on a warm summer afternoon for a quick sweet pick me up!

Fantastic Forest Fruits – Value $1.50?

I wasn’t able to find this snack on the Graze site, but there are a few similar dried fruit mixes. This blend tasted like fall and was deliciously sweet! The apple slices were surprisingly large and super soft. They just melted in my mouth. The cherry raisins added a light sweetness, and the blueberries and lingonberries added a really nice texture. I enjoyed this snack as an early morning pick me up that helped give me energy and kept me feeling full until lunch!

Baobab Raspberry Clusters – Value $1.50 (Buy 6 for $8.99 on Graze)

According to some light research I did, baobab is the only fruit that dries on the branch. It’s a naturally sweet superfood! I love when my snacks are packed with extra-healthy ingredients. The baobab itself has a tropical flavor that mixes so nicely with the tartness of the raspberry clusters. The pumpkin seeds add a lovely crunch, and the apple pieces and ground vanilla help bring together a delicate sweetness that blends well with the tropical baobab powder. This snack has so many flavors and textures that I really love! Now if only I could learn to love coconut!

Wholesome Honey Nuts – Value $1.50?

I wasn’t able to find this snack on Graze, which is a bummer because this was so delicious I would totally buy more! The caramelized honey cashews really are the star in this snack, giving you so much creamy sweet goodness in each bite. The baked peanuts and pumpkin seeds add a bit of saltiness and crunch. This, to me, is what snacking is all about!

Deconstructed Carrot Cake – Value $1.50 (Buy 6 for $8.99 on Graze)

I probably love carrot cake more than most people! Carrot chews, cinnamon raisins, walnuts, and ginger fudge. Oh my! This snack is absolutely delicious and helps curb my sweet cravings that I get most days around three in the afternoon. I love when I can enjoy healthier ingredients while still getting a little bit of sweetness.

Chili Honey Almonds & Peanuts – Value $1.50 (Buy 6 packs for $8.99 on Graze)

This snack mix of almonds and peanuts is covered in a caramelized honey and chili glaze. I have to say, this is the perfect savory snack! You get a ton of heat from the chili, but as you continue eating, you pick up on a caramelized honey sweetness that breaks through the heat. I added a small handful of these to my popcorn for a fun little blend that was so incredible I can’t even explain!

Verdict: I have only received Graze one other time, but I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the mixture of snacks I have gotten! I love that you get sweet and salty items and that they come in a bite-size so you are never overindulging. I am able to quickly grab a snack and toss it in my bag to enjoy later or snack on something quickly while I am at my desk. Graze makes snacking super easy for anyone that is always on the go like myself! Most of these snacks would come in around $1.50 if you bought them as single items. (Of course, most of these are only otherwise available as multipacks.) This box costs $13.99, meaning the cost of each of the eight items inside ends up being $1.75. I wish you could receive one more item, or maybe one larger-sized item in each box to get that value up a bit more. For me, I would have loved to receive a larger size of the wholesome honey nuts or the chili honey almonds and peanuts!

How do you feel about the value of Graze? Do you have a favorite snack that you love receiving?
