Graze 8 Snack Variety Box Review #2 + Free Box Coupon – January 2019
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.)
This review is of the 8-Snack, $13.99 a month, box.

The pamphlet in this month’s box has some general information about the nutritional benefits of the snacks in my box this month.

It also came with a Hello Fresh $60 gift card.
Cocoa and Vanilla Protein Flapjack, 1.9 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
The easiest way for me to consume oatmeal? Add cocoa, vanilla, and put it into yummy little bite-sized blocks! I may not always want to mess with the hot kind, but there are a lot of health benefits to rolled oats. This is the tastiest way to get them in my body with 8 g of protein!
Honeycomb Crunch, 1.5 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
Raisins and almonds and chocolate-covered honeycombs, OH MY! Holy COW these choco-covered honeycombs are delicious! But they are indeed very sweet, so the almonds balance them out and the raisins give you a little soft texture to offset all that CRUNCH you get.
Raspberry & Coconut Muffin, 0.99 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
I adore coconut and here they are joined by dried raspberry cranberries, almond slivers, and amaretto drops (those little cookie-lookin’ fellas). This is a delightful mix of sweet, sour, and crunchy. A real winning combo for anyone who loves the flavor of almond!
White Chocolate with Wild Blueberry Toasts, 0.88 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
These never last long in my presence. Those little bitty blueberry toasts are great on their own but once you dunk them into the white chocolate spread, it’s all over. They’re gone in the blink of an eye! It reminds me of one of my favorite Japanese snacks called Yan Yan in which you dip little cookie sticks into a similar sweet spread. So yummy!
Natural Vanilla Seeds, 1.1 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
On what seems to be the opposite end of the snack spectrum is this mix of pumpkin and sunflower seeds that have been coated in natural vanilla and sugar to give them a hint of sweetness. This is a great way to get the vitamins and minerals you want from the seeds but with a little bit of sugar to help them go down.
Punchy Protein Nuts, 1.4 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
Ok, so I don’t dislike sweets at all, but if forced to choose, I will probably always pick salty/savory over it. This mix is FANTASTIC and includes almonds, peanuts, and CHILI LIME CASHEWS which truly steal the show for me. They have a wonderful zip to them and the lime is tremendous! These are probably my favorite pack of the box. Plus, all these nuts have a stellar amount of protein (9 g for this one).
Sweet & Spicy Beet Crunch, 0.81 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
Dear Beets, I’m sorry, but I think you taste like dirt.
I thought the jalapeno chickpeas could save this mix for me, but the dang beets just dirtied them all up too. There are beet lovers out there who will probably like these, but I just cannot.
Billionaires Shortbread, 1.5 oz. – Buy 6 packs for $8.99
Okay, this one has A LOT going on. “We combined almonds for the base, vanilla fudge and Belgian milk chocolate for the caramel and chocolate topping, then added in cranberries for the wholesome graze twist”. As you can see, the almonds are naked, and there are some dried cranberries along with chocolate drops and tiny caramel cubes. This one is really decadent to say the least, but the almonds balance out the sweetness and the sour cranberries cut it a little bit too. I’m not obsessed with this one, but it’s nice if you have a sweet tooth but don’t want to reach for a candy bar.
Verdict: Graze was pretty great this time around. There were a fair amount of newcomers for me which is nice to see since I’ve reviewed this a handful of times in the past and won’t get bored with the same old thing. Portion control is paramount for me as I tend to go a little wild, and even as a single gal, sometimes I get sick of a huge bag of one kind of mix I may buy too much of in bulk at the Co-Op. The Punchy Protein Nuts were the clear winner for me this month and are tempting to order!
