Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review + Free Box Coupon – January 2018
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. Some subscribers spend time choosing preferences, noting which options they want to try, think they would like, or “trash” and prefer not to receive. Each 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 paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Graze January 2018 Review
Graze includes this handy pamphlet that lists all of the nutritional values for the month’s snacks. On the flip side is a little inspirational message for the new year, suggesting small resolutions you can make toward a healthier lifestyle.
And, here they are…the snacks!
Caramel Apple Dippers, 1.0 oz – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
For those of you who are new to my Graze box reviews, I’ll tell you right off the bat that while my sweet tooth is nearly insatiable, for snacking I’m a savory gal through and through. That said, Graze’s dippers are some of the most delicious sweet snacks I’ve ever encountered, and I’ve come to really look forward to what they’ll include each month. Since dried fruit is sweet, and like I just said, I’m more of a salty snacker, this dried apple ‘n’ caramel dipper option is probably my least favorite of the ones I’ve tried. My tip-top favorite dip & dipper snack from Graze is probably the Summer Berry Compote. The Wholegrain Banana Caramel one is a close second!
Kettlecorn Kern Pops, 0.8 oz – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I recently rediscovered corn nuts after forgetting they existed for about a decade, and I’m now a full-blown fan. This unique snack is like a mix between those and popcorn; it’s kind of a combo. It’s also the perfect blend of sweet and salty; the kettlecorn flavoring is mild enough that it doesn’t turn this offering into an indulgent snack, which I love!
Pumpkin Spice Flapjack, 1.8 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I received the Original Fruity Flapjacks in my very first Graze box, and I was excited to try a variation on that OG flavor. These pumpkin spice ones are definitely not for the faint of heart; they’ve got a strong cinnamon-spice taste to them, but I’m finding it to be extraordinarily delicious! It’s a nice treat to taste a pumpkin spice flavoring during a season other than fall!
Summer Berry Flapjack, 1.8 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
As much as I love me some flapjacks, a second flavor in the same box seems like overkill. Alas, this second version features that summer berry flavor I love so much in compote/dipper form, and the vibe is definitely present in these soft and chewy granola bars. I don’t think I could possibly eat more than one flapjack at a time because of how sweet they are, but they’re a great little treat for satisfying a sweet tooth after lunch during the workweek.
Raspberry & Coconut Muffin, 1 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I wish I would’ve waited to try this snack until after eating something salty because the summer berry flavor lingering in my mouth made this trail mix seem a little overwhelmingly sweet. Alas, the raspberries have an amazingly fruity flavor and the almond slivers offer a hint of balance to the sweetness. Not my favorite, but not bad at all.
Sesame Garlic Crunch, 1 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
Now we’re talkin’! This snack is my jam. It’s a mix of crunchy oat bran sesame sticks, garlic sesame sticks, and multigrain soy rice crackers—but don’t worry, they won’t give you garlic breath. The flavor here is really subtle, and I’m finding that the sesame is what stands out the most. I’m all about this one!
Sweet Mustard Ranch, 0.9 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I’m always down for a pretzel-themed snack, and this is a really good one. The pretzels are mixed with sour cream and onion cashews, and mustard-dusted breadsticks. I’d say this one runs the risk of giving you noticeable breath than the Sesame Garlic Crunch! Even still, the flavors aren’t so overwhelming that I didn’t finish this snack in, like, 5 seconds flat. I’ve never been one to mind fire breath, and my husband hasn’t either, so I guess I lucked out with this one!
Vitamin E Defense, 1.4 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
This is another snack with a great sweet-savory blend. I appreciate that the nuts aren’t outweighed by the dried fruits, so you get a little of each flavor in every bite. I can’t say I’ve eaten many hazelnuts in my day, though I’ve certainly had tons of hazelnut-flavored coffees and desserts. The nuts themselves remind me a tiny bit of macadamia nuts in their consistency, and their taste has a familiarity to it from all those infused coffees and creamers and treats I’ve had in the past. This is a solid one!
Verdict: This January Graze kicked off my year of Graze-loving right! It had the perfect mix of interesting salty snacks and sweet treats, and offered a wide variety of flavors. This box included 8 snacks for $13.99, which breaks down to $1.75 each. As always, I’m cool with that value because of how unique and generally healthy the offerings are!
