Graze is a weekly snack subscription box that delivers 8 snacks to your home in one little box. Snack possibilities include nuts, dried fruits, chips, flapjacks, dippers, soups and more. There are over 100 different concoctions to choose from! Each portion-controlled serving is the perfect pick-me-up for an afternoon at work or at play.

DEAL: You can try your first Graze 4-count snack box free with this link – no coupon code required! You’ll pay $1 shipping for your first box. Adjusting the frequency (or canceling) is easy right from your account.

Graze employs an in-house team of experts to develop their recipes. They regularly source their ingredients from small suppliers dedicated to producing the best, tastiest products around. Graze chefs even tried 29 different varieties of raisins before finding the perfect one for one of their recipes!

While you have the opportunity to specify dietary preferences during the setup process, Graze is not safe for those who suffer from food allergies; all of their products are produced in the same facility. Still, if you’re going gluten-free but don’t have celiac disease, for instance, and you feel comfortable potentially exposing yourself to trace amounts of gluten, this subscription would be ideal for you!

Graze makes it very easy to isolate those snacks that are unsuitable for vegetarians, vegans, those avoiding gluten, dairy, and soy. They also make it easy to avoid snacks containing nuts, bananas, chocolate, cranberries, pineapple and raisins. With one click you can throw out both snacks that require a microwave and those that are spicy.

Once you specify generally the categories of snacks you’d like to avoid, you can go to the “Our Food” tab to preview a list of available snacks. Here you can place each snack into one of four categories: trash, try, like and love. Once you do that, Graze’s Darwin algorithm generates a box to send out that is tailor made for you! Or, if you’d prefer, you can specify boxes according to nutritional content, including carb counting, calorie counting, sugar counting and high protein boxes.

This month, I selected Graze’s sugar count box. Let’s see how it turned out!

My January 2017 Graze Sugar Count Box included the following snacks: Lightly Salted Popping Corn, Snickerdoodle Dip, Tangy Tomato Tapenade, Sour Cream and Onion Cashews, Nature’s Essential Nutrient Nuts, Chinese Shiitake Soup, Super Kale and Edamame and Sweet Memphis Barbecue.

My son and I couldn’t wait to try these!

Graze’s Sour Cream and Onion Cashews were perfectly zesty. My son and I went to town on these.

Graze’s Tangy Tomato Tapenade with Aged Cheddar Bruschetta was very good, but I preferred the cheddar bruschetta on its own to dipping it in the tapenade.

Graze’s Snickerdoodle Dip with Cinnamon Pretzel Sticks was delicious! My kids and I all loved every component to this snack. The thick dip was reminiscent of peanut butter. It was a joy to eat alongside the cinnamon pretzel sticks.

Graze’s popping corn is always a huge hit at our house. My kids devoured this. You would have thought they hadn’t eaten in weeks by the way they tore into this. Yep–it’s that good.

My entire family was sick last week, and when I was feeling just well enough to eat anything, I made myself Graze’s Shiitake Soup and it really hit the spot. The warm mushroom broth with rice noodles and peppers is delicious. I couldn’t have asked for a better recovering-from-norovirus treat.

Graze’s Super Kale and Edamame with Chia Seeds, Cashew Butter and a Twist of Lime was good. It’s probably just the cashew butter, but the kale chips tasted almost a bit cheesy to me. In other words, they were surprisingly good. Still, I’m not sure that we’d order this again, given the choice between it and Graze’s other offerings.

Nature’s Essential Nutrients is a lovely combination of pecans, Brazil nuts and roasted cashews. We love nuts at our house, and these were devoured.

Sweet Memphis Barbecue was also a big hit. This lovely combination of barbecue peas, salsa peanuts and wild rice sticks is zesty and crunchy. I like the textural mix afforded by the rice sticks and the peanuts. We hope to sample this new snack again soon.

In addition to providing nutritional information on each of the snacks I received this month, Graze also included additional information about how to create smoothie bowls along with a coupon for Hello Fresh.

I thoroughly enjoyed this month’s sugar count snack selection based on my inputs into the Darwin algorithm! I look forward to seeing what the algorithm will send next month. In the meantime, I’ll update my preferences: super kale and edamame – try; tangy tomato tapenade-like; all others – love!
