I kept seeing statuses advertising graze.com on Facebook and knew I wanted to try it out. Graze is a natural and healthy snack delivery service that offers a wide variety of portion-controlled snacks delivered right to your door in either 2 or 4 week intervals.
Here’s a photo of the 100% recyclable packaging that comes from sustainable forests. The boxes are nice and slim with not a lot of extra room around the snacks, and they did this to use as little material as possible. I thought that was pretty cool!
When you open it up, you get a pretty graphic on the inside of the lid (they’re all different!) and you can see your snacks packaged neatly in their little cubbies.
I was surprised to see the enclosed card was personalized with my name – that’s a nice touch.
There are two different kinds of boxes available, a nibblebox and a caloriecounterbox. On the graze.com website, you can browse through all of the yummy options available to you and rate them depending on your interest in trying certain things, or based on how well you liked snacks that were delivered in your previous boxes. With the nibblebox, you can choose from the full spectrum of goodies available. With the caloriecounterbox, you’ll be offered a selection of items that are between 50-150 calories each.
Seriously, you need to go look through the website just to drool, because there are SO many fun options.
Inside of the enclosed card you can find detailed nutritional info for the things that are delivered in that particular box. Since we are such big proponents of portion control and calorie management for weight loss or weight maintenance, I think this is a great idea for beginners who are either finding it overwhelming or difficult to measure out all of their food. This will take the guess work out of at least one of your snacks for the day.
When I created my profile, I clicked through the site and rated a bunch of items, but it was fun knowing that I would be surprised when it came to what exactly was sent in my box! First I had the Florentine mix, which has belgian dark chocolate discs, dried cranberries, and pumpkin seeds.
A nice fruity mixture. I liked the unique texture of the pumpkin seeds and thought they went well with the cranberries and chocolate (of course who wouldn’t like big ole discs of dark chocolate?).
Banoffee pie contains dried banana slices, almonds, pecans, and little “fudge” pieces.
Banoffee Pie is one of the calorie conscious snacks at only 149 calories for the whole container. I loved that the banana chips were a little chewy and not too hard to bite into. The fudge pieces tasted closer to caramel to me, but regardless of what they are called, I enjoyed this mix!
Tomato & Basil pizza contains basil crunchini, cheese cashews, and mini tomato breadsticks.
This one was probably my favorite of the bunch, and at only 119 calories, it’s all the more appealing! There were lots of spices and fun flavors going on all at once here. The tomato breadsticks were awesome and I don’t think I’ve ever had a cheese-covered cashew before – love it. I rated this one very highly!
Mississippi BBQ pistachios are another healthy offering at only 104 calories for the container.
Loved these! I’m a fan of pistachios anyway, but these had a nice spicy bite to them. Dexter even got to try one of these when I accidentally flipped one onto the floor while pulling open one of the shells. He liked it, too!
I am a sucker for packaging, and I can’t say enough good things about the design of the box. When you pull out the containers, the bottom is printed like grass – how cool is that? Graze even encourages people to use the leftover container as punnet trays for starting seeds indoors – an herb garden would be a great idea!
Monthly delivery services like graze.com are all the rage right now, and this one is definitely worth a try. I especially recommend it to those who are looking for an easy way to add some varied snacks into their diet and who want to take the guesswork out of measuring out portions and counting calories. Each graze box costs only $6 (that includes shipping!) and you can set your delivery frequency preferences, and you can also cancel anytime – no commitments.

Disclosure: graze.com was kind enough to let me try a complimentary box to share with all of you and test out their service. I was legitimately excited to give this service a try and I think it is an awesome idea! I was not compensated for giving my opinion in any way, other than my sample box.
