Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review #3 + Free Box Coupon – March 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 March 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 build-your-own smoothie recipe with ideas for what ingredients to use. Usually, Graze boxes come with a coupon or two for other food and beverage companies, but this box did not. Let’s get on to the snacks!
White Chocolate with Blueberry Toasts, 0.88 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I got two dippers in this month’s box, how exciting is that? I’m starting off with this very indulgent one featuring a white chocolate dip and little blueberry toasts to dip in it. If I had to pick one type of chocolate to eat for the rest of my life (thank goodness I don’t), it would definitely be dark chocolate, as it offers more complex and rich of a flavor than milk and white chocos. That said, this white chocolate dip is awesome. The toasts are pretty crunchy and I found the blueberry flavor to be faint. I’ve never had this dipper before and I’m excited to have tried it. Super yummy!
Snickerdoodle Dip with Cinnamon Pretzel Sticks, 1.06 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
This is another new-to-me dipper. Homemade snickerdoodles are a staple in my family, so the flavor is very nostalgic to me. Beyond calling it “snickerdoodle dip,” Graze doesn’t specify the flavor. I found it to be a little bit peanut buttery, but of course sweeter. The cinnamon pretzels have a hint of decadence without being overly desserty. This is a nice sweet-and-savory-ish type of snack!
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. 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!
Twist of Black Pepper Popping Corn, 0.99 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
I don’t usually keep microwave popcorn in my pantry, but I always wonder why not anytime I smell someone making it in the office at work. This isn’t the typical super-buttery kind, which I like. The pepper flavoring is light, but it gives this popcorn a little bit of a unique twist.
Original Fruity Flapjack, 1.9 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
Graze was my first ever subscription, and I remember these fruity flapjacks arriving in my introductory box. I received them twice since, and each time has been an awesome throwback! They’re filled with dried fruits and seeds and have a faintly sweet flavor that sets them apart from other granola bars. They’re soft and chewy and altogether wonderfully delicious.
Booster Seeds, 1.31 oz. – Buy a 6-count multipack for $8.99
This is probably the healthiest snack included in my box this time around. This mix of pumpkin, sunflower, and flax seeds is a great source of protein, and they aren’t dusted with any sort of flavoring that might add unwanted calories. Some might not find this snack very exciting, but I like the change of pace. I’m not sure yet if I’ll save these to have on their own at work some afternoon or put them on oatmeal in the morning. Either would be a good option!
Cacao and Orange with Dates and Raw Almonds, 1.5 oz (Buy a pack of 6 for $8.99)
I’m not a huge dried fruit fan, but I’ve been getting into dates lately because they’re a good natural sweetener. I found the dried orange strips to be kind of like gummy candies, while the dried dates were just that: dried dates cut into small pieces. They made for a good sweet team that didn’t feel overly decadent, and the almonds balanced out the flavor well, preventing it from being too sugary all-around. The part I was most excited for in this trail mix was the promise of cacao, but as I poked around, I couldn’t find any! I even asked my husband if he detected any cacao in the handful he ate, and he guessed that maybe the almonds were lightly dusted in it? I didn’t sense that, but I took his word for it. I was stumped by this exact question last time I received this snack!
Louisiana Wild Rice and Beans, 1.06 oz. – Buy a pack of 6 for $8.99
And, lastly, a new Graze offering. The “wild rice” portion of this snack comes by way of sesame-like sticks. The beans are dried broad beans. The combo is spiced up with a little chili flavoring, offering a hint of spice. I will definitely hope to receive this savory snack again!
Verdict: I love the variety of salty and savory snacks in this month’s Graze box! As someone who doesn’t love dried fruit, I was pleased that I only got one snack with that ingredient present. And, it was a good one! This box included 8 snacks for $13.99, which breaks down to $1.75 each. That value is consistently A-OK with me because of how unique the snacks are!
