Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review + Free Box Coupon – October 2018

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

closed Graze box

Note from Liz: I’m so happy to introduce our newest reviewer to the MSA team! Welcome, Bob!

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.

Our Review

The pamphlet in this month’s box has some general information about the kinds of things a nutritionist keeps on hand in their kitchen.

On the bottom are some coupon codes to hand out to people so when they subscribe they can get their first and 5th Graze box for free.

And on the back is all the nutritional information and ingredients of the snacks included in the box.

Also included is a flyer from Amora Coffee to get a bag of coffee normally worth $14.95 for just $1 for postage.

Honeycomb Flapjack – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

Delicious, British and sweet and made with proper Golden Syrup and drizzled with chocolate. These three dense treats pack a lot of energy into a small package making them an ideal last minute breakfast substitute when you need to rush out the door.

Super Kale & Edamame – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

Crisp and savory like a healthy version of potato chips. I guess what makes this kale ‘super’ is the slathering of dried cashew butter they’re covered in. This goes nicely with the dry and crunchy edamame, but be warned, while I found this snack to be an acquired taste, once I acquired it I wished there was an infinite supply!

Antioxidant Vit.E Nuts 

Antioxidant Vit.E Nuts – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

A simple mixture of Brazil nuts, almonds, pecans, and baked salted peanuts. I love all of these individually and together they make a rich and tasty blend.

Cinnamon Date & Honey Pure Bars 

Cinnamon Date & Honey Pure Bars – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

Essentially this bar contains a bunch of pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower seeds all compressed and cemented together with mashed up dates. Not the tastiest things in the world but like the flapjacks, they pack a lot of energy in a small space. There are hints of apple and cinnamon too but these feel more functional than the other snacks in the box.

Vitamin E Defense 

Vitamin E Defense – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

This snack consists of roasted hazelnuts, redskin peanuts, jumbo raisins, and dried cranberries. All a little bland but as the packaging notes, a good source of vitamin E, which apparently protects your cells from stress. I was curious to try the redskin peanuts as I’d never even heard of them. They don’t have a lot of flavor but would probably make a good crunchy addition to trail mix.

Jelly Doughnut

Jelly Doughnut – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

A strange mix of tiny rusk-like cookies, little raspberry worms, chopped up almonds and dried cranberries. It doesn’t seem to have anything to do with a doughnut unless the raspberry fruit strings are supposed to be the solidified jelly filling, hinting at the unseen recent presence of a doughnut. It reminds me more of the kinds of things that would be sprinkled on ice cream that you bought from a cart at a fairground.

White Chocolate with Wild Blueberry Toasts - 

White Chocolate with Wild Blueberry Toasts – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

This is the snack I was looking forward to the most! A rich creamy white chocolate dip with little round slices of dried wholemeal blueberry toast to dip in it. Exactly as scrumptious as I thought it would be, just make sure you eat it all at once as I saved some of mine for later and the oil separated from the white chocolate. I still ate it and it was still delicious.

Sweet and Spicy Beet Crunch – Buy a 6-count for $8.99

I am of the genetic predisposition that causes beets to taste like dirt to me, but this mix of them with chickpeas and sunflower seeds dusted with paprika and jalapeno chili powder was a wonderful way for me to finally be able to enjoy them! It also made for a great snack at my desk that my coworkers were unlikely to steal due to them generally being culinary philistines.

Verdict: Everything about this Graze box is of impressive quality. The packets are all individually sealed with beautifully printed designs making them easily portable and identifiable, though they are not resealable so once they’re open you have to finish them. The snacks themselves are flavorful and the ingredients are mostly pretty healthy. $13.99 per box works out at just $1.75 per snack, which I think is very good value for the contents alone, but I also enjoyed being introduced to foods that I wouldn’t normally choose or hadn’t heard of before.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Graze sends snacks based on your flavor profile, so your box will look completely different than mine!

  1. Yay! Welcome Bob! Hope you love the MSA team as much as all of us do!!

    The honeycomb flapjack looks so good! Is it a soft bar or a hard crunchy bar? It looks soft in the picture but I can’t tell 100%

    • Thanks, it’s lovely to be here! The flapjack was soft and moist!

  2. Fun, thorough, articulate review! Thank you!

    • Thanks!
