Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review + Free Box Coupon – November 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.)

Billionaire’s Shortbread – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
Billionaire’s Shortbread is an actual desert, and I was pleased to see a healthy and delicious alternative to that guilty pleasure. See those little brown squares? Those are FUDGE. There is also Belgian chocolate drops, cranberries, and the smoothest almonds on earth. They are so smooth because they are blanched, which is something I would never do because I don’t have time to boil the skin off of almonds, but I am glad Graze does. This is a delicious combination and I found myself wanting more after I finished them off (for breakfast).
Triple Berry Smoothie – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
This mix contains banana coins, dried mini strawberry, dried blueberries, and cranberries. The bananas were described as “gummy” which really made me uncomfortable until I gave them a try. I am used to hard banana chips and truthfully I liked these soft bananas much more after I got used to the texture. They mix well with the delicious berries and do have a smoothie-like taste when combined.
Cookies and Cream – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
This is an adventurous mix of mini cocoa cookies, white chocolate buttons, chocolate fudge, and sunflower seeds. I love sunflower seeds so much and I am happy whenever they are included in a snack. This mix was tasty, but I wish the cookie pieces had been soft. There is also FUDGE in this. So even with crunchy cookies, I approve this snack.
Punchy Protein Nuts – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
This combo of chili lime flavored cashews, lightly salted peanuts, and almonds were not for me because I cannot handle spicy things. It was a shame because I absolutely love lime! I passed these on to my husband who tried them and assured me that they weren’t that spicy, though I did not believe him. He mentioned that the lime and chili tastes wear off quickly and that the rest “tastes just like nuts.” He is a poet. He did appreciate that this is a protein-rich snack.
Honeycomb Crunch – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
This would be your normal run of the mill almond+raisin mix except the geniuses at Graze also tossed some honeycomb covered in chocolate into the mix. I really love fresh honeycomb (try it on froyo if you can!) This is dry honeycomb, but I swear you can taste the beeswax when you crunch into it. It is really delicious and saved an otherwise boring snack.
Iced Cinnamon Bun – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
This mix of caramelized honey and cinnamon almonds, yogurt coated sunflower seeds and vanilla cookie drops was another winner for me! My favorite sunflower seeds are coated in yogurt this time around and they are TASTY. The coated almonds are delicious enough to eat alone and the cookie drops are light but crunchy.
Caramel Apple – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
While I did eat and enjoy this snack, it was my least favorite of the box. The caramel sauce was delicious, but it felt weird eating it with soft dried apples. I would have preferred something with a crunch, like an apple chip. This criticism aside, I would still eat this again with no hesitation.
Garden of England – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
This mix of dried mini strawberries, blackcurrants, and soft apple slices is really yummy. I absolutely love currants and they do have a distinct English flair to them. This would be really incredible mixed with your favorite yogurt and paired with some toast for an especially quaint breakfast. Don’t forget the tea!
Verdict: I really loved this Graze box! There were a ton of super unusual ingredients in this batch. The standouts for me were the yogurt coated sunflower seeds, the black currants, and of course the chocolate covered honeycomb. The cost of the $13.99 box works out at just $1.75 per snack, which I think is a great value for a treat yourself food that feels like a luxury.
