Graze Box Review (January 2014)


I had put reviewing my Graze boxes on hold because I wasn't sure how I wanted to review them. Weekly? monthly? At all? But I finally decided in mid January that I was going to start reviewing them at the end of each month. Basically, if you've read my past reviews on Graze, you know the drill, however a few things have changed about their service since the last time I did a review, so I will go into a little bit of detail before I get on with my boxes from this month.

What is a Graze Box?
Graze is a company that delivers boxes of healthy, nutritious snacks to your door and only costs just over $6 per box. Each box contains 4 individually contained snacks that are per-portioned for you to take on the go, or enjoy at home. You can choose to get the boxes delivered once a month, once a week, or bi-weekly.

What kind of Snacks are there?
You can visit their site here for more photos, but their snacks include dried fruits, nuts and seeds, granola bars (they call flapjacks) and lots more! There are currently over 90 snacks to choose from, and all of their snacks are designed in their very own Graze Kitchen. They also come out with new snacks all the time!

Can I customize my boxes?
Sort of! Once you join, you'll be able to look through all the snacks that Graze has to offer and rate them "Try, Like, Love, or Trash." Choose try if you're not sure how you feel about the snack, but are open to trying it, like if you're interested in trying, love if you think/know you'll love it and want it to be sent to you frequently, or trash if you know you never want to be sent a certain snack.

Graze will then choose snacks for you and put them into your box to try. You will then have the opportunity to adjust your ratings accordingly.

Can I pause my subscription?
Graze is super customizable, and you are able to push back boxes as far as you want! There have been times where I have pushed my deliveries back for a month or two so I can try other things. Of course I always go back to Graze, but it's great that the option is there!

How do I subscribe?
Simply visit their website and sign up! However, if you want to get your 1st AND your 5th box totally FREE (yay free stuff!) then I would suggest using an invite code from a Graze subscriber. I just happen to have one for you! Just follow this link to get started:

https://www.graze.com/us/p/7CL17KN7U

(I ALWAYS donate my referral credits to the Graze School of Farming!)

Just enter that promo code when you sign up and you'll get your free boxes! You can cancel with just the click of the button if you decide you don't like it, there's no hassle or complicated cancellation, and trust me, you won't want to stop getting these! Regularly priced boxes are $6 each.

On to my boxes from January!

BOX #1
The snacks I received in this box were:

Honeycomb Crunch: (sweet) This one is sooo yummy! It contains raisins, almonds and little pieces of chocolate covered honeycomb. It's a very nice sweet treat!

Scandinavian Forest: (fruit) This snack contains blueberries, lingonberries, cherry-infused raisins and apples. This is a very tart and delicious selection of dried fruits. My fiance J loves this one!

Black Pepper Pistachios: (nuts) I LOVE pistachios, and I especially love these ones from Graze. When you're trying to cut back on salt, these pepper-seasoned pistachios are a great alternative!

Fruit & Seed Flapjack: Flapjacks are a softer, more oatmeal-like granola bar that is popular in the UK. These are my favorite things in the Graze boxes because they are great for breakfast! It's like a lightly sweetened oatmeal bar, and they have a few different flavors to choose from!

BOX #2 
The snacks that I received in this box were:

Cherry Fudge Sundae- (sweet) This snack contains little chocolate fudge pieces, blanched almonds, cherry-infused raisins and cherries. This is so tasty. The cherry-almond flavor with the light taste of chocolate is super delish! Really enjoyed this snack and so did J.

Cookies and Cream- (sweet) This is a strange one. It contains mini cookies, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds and white chocolate. I don't personally think that these things really go together well, so I tend to eat each thing separately rather than at the same time as intended. It's not a bad one, just not a favorite.

Apple Cosmo- (fruit) This is one of J's favorites as he loves the dried fruits. This one has apples, lime-infsed raisins, and cranberries. Super fruity and very delicious. Like a grown up pack of fruit snacks!

Brooklyn Bites- (savory) I definitely favor the savory selections that Graze has to offer and this one is a favorite. It contain poppy seed pretzels, cheese cashews and roasted pumpkin seeds. It has a slight BBQ flavor to it, but it's not overpowering. It's a great combination and all of it together is super tasty!

I do get 4 boxes per month as I requested to get them weekly, however I just started up my Graze subscription again mid month. I had taken a quick break to try another service and yet again, came back to Graze! I hope you'll give them a try! You can't go wrong at $6 a box! Don't forget to use my promo link (HERE) so that you can get your 1st and 5th box for free!

  1. Thank you Rachel B, for the insight about Graze, plus the code and the other "one". I have to admit for the other "one", I was shocked at the size of the box and its contents. I look forward to receiving Graze.

    2. HOW long does one box last- it looks kinda small in the pic to only get every other week? I did sign up through your code- Im excited to try

    3. Each snack is individually packaged and is considered 1 serving. The best way to make the most of these boxes is to bring them to lunch at work or as an after school snack for kids etc etc. I use my graze snacks as part of my lunch (sandwich and a snack from graze!) and it works well for me. You can however, e-mail graze directly and request to get your boxes weekly instead of bi-weekly. Depending on how busy they are, they aren't always able to accommodate, but they can occasionally. If you'd like to get one a week then I would try and reach out to them and see if they can help! :)
