February Graze Box

Graze Box is a new food centric subscription service that was introduced to me by Jared over at An Asian ReviewsGraze doesn't sent out their boxes monthly they actually send them out weekly.  Graze sends out a box of four snack size containers of dried fruit, nuts, crackers, dip and dippers, etc.  The boxes are semi-customizable meaning you don't actually get to pick which items you want but you can rate the items you receive from love to never send me this again.  The cost of this weekly service is $5.00 a week with shipping included.   

The good:

Snacker: Are you a snacker like me?  These are perfectly proportioned snack size containers.

Nutritional info: The include nutritional info in each box. It's on the card in the package though, not the actual product.

Skip: Sort of.  They don't call it skipping, they call it pushing back but it works the same.  You can do this online through your account and it's super easy.

Price: The costs ends up being $1.25 per package.  You're paying for convenience but I gotta be honest it was super convenient to pick up a pack and throw it in my lunch bag this morning. 

Semi-customizable: You rate items and that's how they choose which items to send you. 

Referrals: They have a program where you can refer up to 4 people.  You get $1 off your next box or you can donate that $1 to charity. 

The not so good:

Nothing comes to mind. 



This is the graze box.  It's a thin cardboard box. 


This was the first box I received.  It had my four goodies and a napkin inside. 


This is my second box.

Nutritional information included in each box.  Love this!


Contents of my first box:

Summer Berry Compote with wholemeal shortbread dippers

Hot Cross Yum, sponge pieces, cinnamon and honey almonds and orange infused raisins

The British Barbecue, Rosemary crostini, mini basil bread sticks, fiery seeds and smoked almonds - Nice little crunchy snack but a little salty so have something to drink nearby.

Cookies & Cream, mini chocolate cookies, roasted hazels, white chocolate buttons and sunflower seeds

Contents of the second box:

Fruit & Seed Flapjack, rustic rolled oat flapjack with mixed seeds and dried fruit - I expected this to be crunch but it was super soft and oatmeally and delicious!

Cheddar Gorge, cheese cashews, baked herb bites and salsa corn sticks

Toffee Apple, sticky toffee sauce with granny smith apple slices

Tutti Frutti, blueberry infused cranberries, pineapple, cherry infused raisins and green raisins


The first thing I noticed about this was that it looked a lot like GoBites except they are less expensive and you don't get to pick your snacks per se.  These break down to $1.25/ea while GoBites is $1.99/ea and you have to order 14 at a time.  I wasn't sure I would like the weekly thing but I think it works out well because the packages aren't sitting in a pile waiting to be eaten.  I'm finding these are perfect to take to work and leave at my desk for a quick snack. 

Verdict: I'm really liking this one.  The combinations are great.  

**I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Graze Box.  This box was free through a promo code use, weekly subscription are paid for my me.

  2. If you need a code, here is mine: QHJ56YGD. This should get your first box free.

    I am really happy to see that you are trying Graze. I was going to post to you about it. I am on my fourth box now and love it! The snacks are portioned perfectly and I just wish the number of snacks was a little higher (6-7 would be ideal). I can tear through these really quickly.

    In general, I consider this to be a good complement to NatureBox. The snacks tend to lean on the healthier side (versus Love with Food or Goodies). The weekly rate provides great variety and I love that I can rate the snacks to either get them more often or trash them forever (I am not a fan of coconut so I immediately marked off all items containing it).

    I subscribe to four food-related boxes right now (all mentioned above) and with a recent lean to a healthier food plan, I am considering dropping LWF (once annual sub expires) and Goodies and sticking with NatureBox and Graze.

    1. Hi Kyle - Thanks for the code, mine are all gone. I'm really like the Graze box also. I'm tryin to eat more of the healthy snacks also but the teenager and the boyfriend still enjoy the LWF and Goodies box so they eat most of that stuff. I've been trying to portion out the stuff I get from NatureBox in little containers so I don't eat the whole bag but it's much more convenient to grab a graze box to go.

  3. I've been enjoying my Graze! I got the shortbread and strawberry compote in my last box and it was delicious. These are really unique snacks/combos, I think.

    1. I didn't get to try the strawberry one - the boyfriend ate it first and didn't save me any. I'm sure I'll get it again at some point though. I really like the fruit and seed flapjack, surprisingly soft.

  4. Oh wow, when I first saw this I thought GoBites might have rebranded. These look better than the GoBites I tried, will definitely have to consider getting it...

    1. I was thinking the same thing but it looks like GoBites still exist. I like Graze and I made my subscription every two week which works our great for me.

    2. I'd do that too! But alas, at the moment it's pretty much impossible to find a working referral code. Please let me know if you know of any!

    3. I've heard codes are hard to come by. That's good the company has really taken off hopefully they can keep up with demand. If I find a code ill let you know!
