There used to be a time when the most exciting delivery of the day was my mail – a handful of junk mail mixed with bills. A Graze box arriving has eclipsed this memory and it is a very exciting event in my house for two reasons.
One – who doesn’t love receiving a surprise goodie bag by post? and two – the snacks are delicious. It’s the only raisins my 4-year old will eat. It’s the only porridge my husband eats. And their flapjacks has got to be made from a super secret recipe because it is impossible to make or obtain by any other means flapjacks that taste this good.
Here is how it works. There are two box sizes – a standard box with 4 individually wrapped single servings for £3.99 and a Sharing box with 5 sharing backs of snacks for £15-18. There are over 100 snacks to choose from that are packaged in 3 box types – variety, light box (each snack has under 150 calories) and protein box. There are also breakfast boxes and kids snack boxes.
There are some super healthy snacks to choose from, but they follow the 80/20 rule, which we very much approve of so that snacks are healthier, but there are also some indulgent ingredients included.
It is incredibly easy to order a variety box, but if you are a picky snacker, there are also customization options to rate each individual snack and have a lot of control over what arrives in your box. It doesn’t take a lot of time and there is even a “how do I use this page” helper with pop-up text to help you get the idea of their system.
It is possible to blanket tick certain categories, like “no spicy foods” as well as “no gluten”, “no soya”, “no milk”, “only vegan” and “only vegetarian”, but Graze is very clear that they do not cater for people with food allergies as all their food is packaged in the same kitchen and cross-contamination is going to happen.
Their packaging is sturdy and their cardboard “comes from sustainable forests, it’s 100% biodegradable & 100% recyclable”, but the snacks are individually packaged in plastic.
Graze makes beautiful snack boxes with healthier ingredients. Their ingredients are of a high quality and their recipes are brilliant combinations of foods I never would think to put together. There is something for all ages and at £3.99 a box or a £1 a snack, it may not be the cheapest snack option, but you most definitely get what you pay for.
