Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review #2 + Free Box Coupon – February 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.

Graze February 2018 Review
Graze includes a handy pamphlet that lays out the inspiration, health benefits, and flavors behind their featured snacks.
On the back, this pamphlet also lists all of the nutritional values for the month’s snacks!
Active Nutrient Blend, 1.27 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
These were actually the first dates I’ve ever tasted! By themselves, the dried dates have a warm, slightly saccharine flavor—almost like honey.
The pumpkin seeds in this snack don’t have much oomph, but they add a nice texture. Bring in the hearty walnuts, which work in flavorful harmony with this snack’s other elements, and you’ve got a unique twist on standard trail mix!
Honeycomb Crunch, 1.52 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I will always love a chocolate-and-raisins combo. Unite it with almonds and mini honeycomb bites, and it makes for a perfectly satisfying, crunchy, and filling(!) snack.
I ate these around 3:00 pm on a workday when my energy levels were plummeting, and, along with some coffee, these perked me right up!
Natural Vanilla Seeds, 1.09 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
These would make a great cereal, yogurt, or oatmeal topper, but are a bit ho-hum on their own. The vanilla glaze is very light, and its flavor wears off by the time you start to actually get a taste of the pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
I think the added texture of a larger snack element mixed in would make this snack a true standout.
Lightly Salted Popcorn, 0.99 oz. – Buy a 6-pack multipack for $8.99
Graze’s popcorn never disappoints. This lightly-salted pack has a tasteful amount of seasoning—not overly salty, and not buttery like movie theater popcorn that always ends up leaving me queasy!
What’s best about this popcorn, however, is that it’s juuuuust right portion size for satisfying snacking.
Peach & Rhubarb Pick-Me-Up, 1.2 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
The “peach drops” in this mix are AMAZING. Honestly, they’re better than any sugar-coated peach ring I’ve ever had. They’re not dried peaches, but rather sweet gummies flavored with real peach juice. Their sweetness brightens up the dried rhubarb and pears—they all complement each other so wonderfully!
I’ve seen photos of this snack crumbled atop yogurt as granola, and I wish I tried it myself. It would be so good! This was one of my favorite snacks of the box.
Veggie Protein Power, 0.99 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
Another fave of the bunch! I needed a hearty, savory snack after this month’s sweet treats, and this combination of edamame, cashews, and chickpeas fit the bill. It’s heavy on the pepper, and doesn’t hold back on heat, either!
The spicy chickpeas had a bit too much crunch for my sensitive teeth, but the bold flavors and fill-me-up factor made up for that.
Billionaire’s Shortbread, 1.55 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
My eyes lit up at the sight of another chocolate-and-dried-fruit combo, but this snack left me feeling a little off. It was too sweet!
I’m not a huge fudge fan, and the almonds had me craving more exciting textures and flavors. I ended up just eating the chocolate and a few cranberries! (The Belgian milk chocolate is very creamy and delicious.)
Cinnamon Pretzel, 0.88 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
Auntie Anne’s, who?! Pop a pretzel and a cinnamon-honey-coated almond on your tongue at the same time, and it truly tastes like a sweet, buttery soft pretzel. A miracle, I tell you.
These’ll bring ya right back to those mall food court indulgences, but with much less potential for a sugar overload!
Verdict: This month’s Graze snack haul really satisfied my sweet tooth! Dried fruit had a starring role, with a great variety of nuts mixed in. I could have used a nice grainy snack, incorporating oats or wheat, perhaps, to balance out all the raw ingredients I received this month. (I think I may still be lusting after last month’s lemon flapjacks!)
My top two favorites from this 8-pack round-up would certainly be the Peach Rhubarb Pick-Me-Up and the Active Nutrient Blend.
