Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review #2 + 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.)

Natural Vanilla Seeds – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
Few times have I enjoyed snacking on straight-up seeds, but this mix of sunflower and pumpkin seeds was divine. Lightly sweet with a welcoming vanilla flavor, this blend was one I couldn’t put down until every last bit was finished. Seriously—I took a spoon to the container and just didn’t stop. A very strong start to this month’s box!
Original Fruity Flapjack – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
Ooh, this little trio was so good! An updated recipe from a 30-year-old British bakery, these mini bars combine rolled oats with dried apricots, dates, pumpkin seeds, and more to deliver a wholesome, hearty flavor with a hint of natural sweetness. These would make for an excellent morning snack, had I not scarfed them all immediately.
Vanilla Pear Energizer
This offering was so new, I couldn’t find it on Graze’s site quite yet. Mixing pear pieces, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and almonds to provide fiber and a source of vitamin E, this snack was a nice intersection of healthy and lightly indulgent. The hint of vanilla was quite enjoyable as well.
Peach Cobbler – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
What a satisfying way to handle a sweets craving! This cobbler mix features peach fruit drops with a wonderfully concentrated flavor, almonds, yogurt seeds, and amaretti drops. I was most impressed by the amaretti drops mimicking the taste and texture of a delectable crust. This one was super fun.
Fantastic Forest Fruits – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
It looks like this pack is going by a new name, as the original was “Super Forest Fruits.” The ingredients (blueberries, lingonberries, soft apple pieces, and cherry-flavored raisins) are still the same, though. I happen to love dried fruit, especially raisins, so this was another win for me. The apple pieces were softer than I had anticipated, but I enjoyed them nonetheless.
Raspberry & Coconut Muffin – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
Upon opening the package, I immediately smelled the raspberries. The shredded coconut, amaretti drops, and almonds were a nice blend and made this snack feel more like a dessert than a healthy treat. Well done with this one, Graze!
Anytime Energizer – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
A favorite of one a Graze nutritionist, this pack offers cherries, pears, and walnuts for a boost of copper and manganese for energy. I really appreciated the chewiness of the fruit against the crunch of the walnuts. It’s a nice, basic mix.
Sweet Mustard Ranch – Buy a 6-count for $8.99
I saved this one for last because I tend to snack on the savory side, and wanted to end this review on a high note. The mix of roasted sour cream and onion cashews, mustard breadsticks, and poppyseed pretzels had a familiar taste to some of my favorite lunchbox snacks as a kid. I went through this one about as quickly as the vanilla seeds, and wished I had more!
Verdict: This was my first time trying Graze and I must say, I am impressed. At first, I felt a little daunted because I tend to prefer savory snacks, of which there was only one in this box, but I thoroughly enjoyed every single offering. My favorites include the vanilla seeds and the sweet mustard ranch mix. For $1.75 per snack, this was absolutely worth it for me, as each snack had a lot of personality, with the added bonus of being healthy.
