Graze Box Review


graze boxOnce a month, I allow myself a lovely box of treats from Graze. Each month, I eagerly await my box of goodies, all the while wondering which tasty morsels will be winging their way to me. So, each month, after I’ve sampled the contents of my four punnets, I shall rate and review them here, in the hopes that it will help refine the choices of other Graze boxers.

Here’s what I got this month:

Contents: Popcorn with a hint of black pepper
Once again, Graze shows us how popcorn should taste – the hint of black pepper is just enough to give a nice kick without being overpowering. Just the right size for a cinema snack.

Contents: Smoked cashews, smoked almonds, roasted sunflower seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds
The hickory smoked flavour really packs a punch, and the range of textures and flavours compliment each other well. I think this is one of my favourites so far!

Contents: Mini chocolate cookies, roasted hazelnuts, white chocolate buttons, sunflower seeds
Each element tastes lovely, but the overall effect is a little dry. I feel this would have been improved by the addition of some fruit – maybe cranberries – to give a little juiciness. Everything tastes lovely, but together it’s a little lacking.

Contents: Pecan nuts, dark chocolate buttons, cranberries
Simple and delicious. The chocolate is flavoursome and smooth, the cranberries are fruity with a li-smacking kick, and the pecans are, well, if you like pecans, you’ll be very happy, as I was!

Overview of the box:
A ice balance again of fruit, nuts, seeds and chocolate, as well as both sweet and savoury being represented. Only one punnet wasn’t quite as great as I would have hoped, but that was probably down to a personal preference for something not so dry-tasting, and each of the elements was still delicious. My favourite was definitely the hickory smoked nuts and seeds, despite having the higher calorie content, as it really did pack  flavour punch. I really love the inclusion of popcorn in my recent Graze boxes – it’s great to have a low cal “cinema treat” while I watch a movie – I can get the cinema experience without breaking the calorie bank!
