Graze Boxes

Graze boxes have been popular with leading newspapers and magazines claiming to help you stop snacking and replace junk food with healthy punnets which can be eaten on-the-go.

I have previously tried Graze boxes but never really found myself as a fan. I'm not keen on certain nuts, don't eat chocolate and absolutely hate dried fruit such as mango and pineapple - and when I first heard about Graze, that's all they used to provide in their boxes. But when I recieved a voucher from WHSmiths for a free Graze box, I signed up again and saw that their list of products had greately improved from what I saw previously on their website. The food they provide is a wider selection including a different variety of flapjacks, deli-style focaccia and yoghurt dipped peanuts, so this time when I was browsing my 'try, likes and bins', I found that there was a lot more products available that I like and would consider trying. I filled in the necessary info, told them what I hated and when Thursday came around, I recieved my Graze box which looked like this:



When I opened my box, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with what I'd recieved, I was also especially pleased to see that some of the bread they make was also included. The four punnets I recieved were:
- Lemon Meringue Pie - mini meringues, lemon sultanas & yoghurt dipped peanuts
- The Firecracker - chilli rice crackers, spicy peanuts & salsa corn sticks
- Cherry tomato, basil & pesto - deli-topped focaccia from the bakery
- Orange and Ginger flapjack - rustic rolled oat flapjack with orange and stem ginger

Along with the punnets came two leaflets, one contains all the nutrional information needed for each punnet including the use by date and the ingredients. I found this particularly helpful and saw that each punnet contains under 250 calories. The second leaflet was about Graze explaining how to get the foods you love and also change delivery days, about delivery and how to rate the food you like/dislike.

Another thing I noticed is how Graze really take care in their packaging and get everything right down to the napkin which is included underneath the punnets. Everything is used from recycled card and plastic and can be recycled again when finished.

Overall, I am impressed with the way Graze has expanded from when I first tried it about a year ago and how they have created more food so something is suitable for everyone. I will be keeping my subscription to Graze for the moment.

If anyone would like to try a Graze box for free, please email me on the address on the right and I will send you the free code.
