Graze “Sweet Treats” Box Review + Free Box Coupon – August 2016

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

Graze August 2016 - 1

Graze is a mini-snack subscription box that sends a customized selection of treats weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. They offer over 100 different snacks that you can rate online, which, over time, helps tailor your subscription to your particular snacking preferences.

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.

This is a review of the specialized “Sweet Treat” box which contains just that – sweet treats!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Graze August 2016 - 12

Natural Vanilla Seeds

I’ll start the review off with my least favorite snack of the month. I’m neither a fan of pumpkin or sunflower seeds – so I knew this wouldn’t be a hit for myself. The good news, at least for me, was that the vanilla flavor was really strong – so it did make it a bit more enjoyable for me.

Graze August 2016 - 11

Cherries & Berries

Ok, yum! This mixture of cherries, lingonberries, cranberries, and jumbo raisins are delicious. The mixture was sweet and tart at the same time – lots of natural goodness here.

Graze August 2016 - 10

Protein Flapjacks

I love all of their Flapjack offerings. These are soft, mini, bars of delicious. I have yet to encounter a flapjack that I haven’t enjoyed. I knew I really enjoyed them when I saw there were sunflower and pumpkin seeds in these and I hadn’t even noticed!

Tea & Cookies: Lemon Almond Cookies

The Tea & Cookies line is a new offering from Graze – this is my first time receiving one, so I was excited!

Graze August 2016 - 6

I came with a nice black tea that I prepared without any additives. The cookies were absolutely delicious when dipped in the tea or just by themselves. I highly recommend trying one of these snacks if you love tea!

Graze August 2016 - 8

Snickerdoodle Dip with Cinnamon Pretzel Sticks

Like the Tea & Cookies line, Graze offers a number of different lines of snacks. One such offering is their ‘Dippers’ line of snacks. You’ll receive some something to dip, like apples of pretzels, and a dipper, like caramel or snickerdoodle dip. The snickerdoodle dip tastes just like Speculoos dip from Trader Joes. These are good – but I wouldn’t rank them in my go-to Graze snacks.

Iced Cinnamon Bun

New favorite alert. How have I not had these before?! These taste exactly as advertised. I don’t even have much more to add – they were gone so quickly!

Graze August 2016 - 3

Stars & Stripes

These gummy candies are delicious. Again – how haven’t I tried these. It was a fantastic mix of fruitiness – I like these because they’re all natural gummies, too – so it felt a bit less bad that I was eating gummy candies!

Graze August 2016 - 4

Sweet Rhubarb Jam

The final snack was one that I had tried in the past and loved. I really enjoy Graze’s apple slices. They’re not completely dried and hard – so they keep a chewiness that I appreciate.

Verdict: I was pretty certain that the Graze ‘Sweet Treat’ box would be delicious before I’d ever received it – and I was not disappointed. I’m really enjoying these curated boxes as a whole. It’s a nice way to get a glimpse of a specific subset of what Graze is offering – I can highly recommend the ‘Top 20’ and ‘Sweet Treats’ boxes for newcomers to Graze.

  1. Get this as a Groupon deal. For $24 or less (they run %’s off every couple of weeks) you get 4 8 count boxes for the price of 2. Can buy multiples and use different cc for each.

  2. I think I might switch over to this box. I currently subscribe to the Graze Variety box, but some of the desserts here looks really good! I received the tea boxes before and they are awesome! The cookies are seriously tasty and their teas are too, but most notably they don’t give me a horrible aftertaste if I just have the tea alone with no milk or sugar. Love it!

  3. I usually get the protein but I want to try this too. Looks so good. Thanks for the review.
