Graze Box: Week of 10/6/14

Another week, another Graze box!

Now one thing I want to note about Graze is that their customer service is amazing. There are a lot of different snacks available on Graze, over 90 of them, I believe, and after four months of subscribing, I still had a ton that I hadn’t tried! So I made a comment about that on their Facebook page, then had an opportunity to email one of their staff about it. I explained what I wanted, that I would like some new things, and she explained some ways I could ‘tweak’ my preferences in order to get some new things. So recently, I’ve had a lot of new things pop up in my Graze boxes, and lots of fruit, which is my favourite!

This week’s box included one thing I had already had (Summer Berry Flapjack) and three things I had not had (Eleanor’s Apple Crumble, Triple Berry Smoothie, and the Natural Energy Nuts).

This is a closeup of Eleanor’s Apple Crumble. Described on their site as “raisins, cinnamon and honey almonds and soft apple pieces”, it certainly lives up to the ingredient list! The raisins are just normal raisins, a bit of rub off of the cinnamon, but nothing extraordinary. The apple pieces are soft and chewy, very true to the flavor, and the cinnamon and honey almonds are amazing! Get a bit of everything in one bite and I can definitely get the Apple Crumble out of it! This one goes in my ‘love’ pile!

20141008_150446The Natural Energy Nuts weren’t quite as much of a hit with me. Described on the website as “walnuts, roasted hazelnuts, blanched almonds and almonds”, that’s all they really are. There’s no salt to be seen, and I’ve discovered that I’m someone who definitely likes some salt with her nut mixes. That wasn’t to say it was bad, though. If you enjoy plain nuts, then you’d probably enjoy this one, but it wasn’t for me! Trash pile, say hello!

The Triple Berry Smoothie was next on my list, and this one was definitely a hit! Described on the website as “mini strawberries, blueberries, cranberries and chewy banana coins”, that’s definitely what you get. The strawberries are tiny things, soft and moist, and packed with strawberry flavor. The blueberries and cranberries are amazing, and this is the ONLY way that I like my dried bananas: In a Graze box! They’re chewy, not crunchy, and true to flavor. I don’t usually like bananas except with they’re fresh, but Graze has shown me they can be amazing!

Get a bit of everything and enjoy this one. It’s definitely packed full of berries and the creaminess of banana!

20141010_115618Oh flapjacks. I think songs might have been written about you. This one is their Summer Berry Flapjack, described on the website as “rustic rolled oat flapjack with berry-infused cranberries”. It’s absolutely amazing, and probably one of my favourite flapjacks that they offer!

It’s soft and dense and packed with those berry-infused cranberries. You could definitely portion this one out for several snacks, but alas, I have no willpower so it was gone as my dessert after my lunch today!

As always, Graze continues to please, and I don’t see myself ending my subscription to them any time soon. With the upcoming release of their Big Bags, I’m really excited to have larger quantities of my favourite snacks available!

So, who here has discovered the love that is Graze? What? You haven’t heard of it? Well, let me tell you a little bit about my love of this site and what it offers.

Graze offers these little boxes of deliciousness called Nibble Boxes. Inside each Nibble Box are four portion-controlled snacks. These range anywhere from a nut and seed mix to some chips and salsa and everything in between.

This was my box I got this past week, delivered straight to my office! It’s like Christmas every week to see what kind of treats I’m going to have to enjoy.

Deliciousness awaits!
