Graze Box Review - Get 2 Free Boxes!

Leftovers are my nemesis.

If I were a superhero I would spend my days battling a villain made of Tupperware containers of fried rice and half-empty bags of nuts. And also admiring the spiffy leather boots that came with my superhero outfit.

Be it meals or snacks, I get bored with food. This fact is not doing my grocery budget any favors.

Enter Graze.

Graze is a snack subscription service that sends a weekly Nibblebox, containing four single-serving healthy treats, to your home or office.

I've seen ads for the service on daytime television, so a few weeks ago, armed with a code for a free box, I signed up.  I received my box this weekend and was so delighted I had to share.

(Want the code for your 1st and 5th boxes free without reading the rest of my blabber? No worries.  GFWQHLZYP )

I'm, of course, still on my 30-day dairy elimination diet, so the first order of business was to find out if there was a way to opt out of certain ingredients. Though they make a point of saying that, because of cross-contamination, Graze is not appropriate for people with allergies, it was simple to set dietary preferences and opt out of everything containing dairy. There are also options for opting out of items containing gluten, nuts, spicy foods, and there are plenty of vegan-friendly options.

The part I love best is that each box is different.  Bye bye, snack time boredom. You are able to rate each item you receive by marking it, "Trash," "Try," "Like," or "Love." Everything, except what your dietary preferences send to "Trash," starts out as "Try." Your ratings and reviews help determine what shows up on your doorstep next time.

There are nearly 100 healthy snack items, mostly dried fruit and nut mixes, dips and dippers, and a handful of  mini granola bars they call "flapjacks." Each after trashing over 30 dairy-containing items, there are still plenty of yummy-sounding things to keep me entertained for a long while.

This week I received:
  • Florentine mix: Belgian dark chocolate discs, cranberries & pumpkin seeds
  • Smoky BBQ Corn: smoked cashews & BBQ-flavored jumbo corn
  • Summer Berry Flapjacks: rolled oats with cranberries
  • Eleanor's Apple Crumble: raisins, honey cinnamon almonds & dried apples

In the interest of providing a full and honest review, I've tried all of them over the last few days. It's because I care about you.  And, because they were tasty.

I enjoyed every one of them. Of the bunch, the BBQ corn was my favorite (and the one I least expected to like.) The flavor was excellent and the corn was super crunchy. The Florentine mix, which I expected to love, was my least favorite. The chocolate was wonderful, but the pumpkin seeds were just "ehh."  The Summer Berry Flapjacks had a nice texture and flavor, but, at 230 calories, was a little more than what I want for a snack.  Next time I'll probably have those for breakfast. In the apple mix, I absolutely loved the honey cinnamon almonds.

I've already peeked ahead to see what I'll be receiving this week.  It all looks amazing, but I'm super excited about the Raspberry Coconut Muffin snack mix.

Each box is $6.99, so it comes out to $1.75 per serving. It's slightly more than a trip to vending machine, and way less than stocking up on enough dried fruits, nuts and crackers to keep me happily crunching all week long.

Here's the best part of this whole post...

I have a code to share so that you can get your 1st and 5th boxes free!  Sign up at Graze.com with the code... GFWQHLZYP  to get your free boxes.  

There's no commitment, so if you try the first box and don't love it, you can cancel.  

In full disclosure, I also receive $1 off for anyone who uses my code, but I honestly do think it's a top-notch product or I would never recommend it. 

Now, go on and get some free, scrumptious snacks.
