I started writing reviews of Graze boxes many moons ago (you can see my first two here and here), but I guess life and baby got in the way and they were resigned to the blogger graveyard. I have still been receiving Graze boxes, but I have changed my subscription to fortnightly rather than weelky deliveries, partly in a small attempt to save some of my maternity pay pennies and partly because I am not working 60 hours a week and don't seem to need as many snacks to get me through the day. Also, being on maternity leave and past the first tricky new-born weeks, I feel like I have so much more time to prepare and eat a snack than I ever did when I was at work so I don't really have the same need for Graze boxes. However, they are soooo delicious, I couldn't quite give them up! I love everything about Graze. The snacks are delicious, unusual and nutritious and stop me reaching for unhealthy crisps, biscuits or chocolate bars. I originally though they'd just be a few berries and nuts and that I would be able to create something similar, but I was so wrong. The ingredients are so well thought out and so well put together. I love how the packages fit straight through your post-box. I also love the ease of the website. It is so easy to rate each of the snacks you receive. They send you an email after you have received each box with links to rate each snack. You then rate the snacks as bin, like or love and if you rate them as love they will send you the snacks more frequently. You can also select snacks as send soon. My only criticism is that when I rated a few snacks as love I got them repeatedly before I had tried half of the other snacks on the website and as much as I loved the ones I was receiving I would rather try as many of the snacks as possible and be able to then rate them all.
So here's my most recent Graze box and let me tell you, all of the snacks were amazing! It could quite possibly be my favourite box yet and I have rated each snack as 'love'.
Hot Cross Yum
Hot cross yum consists of sponge pieces, cinnamon and honey almonds and orange infused raisins and let me tell you, it is amazing! The components work so well together. The cinnamon and honey almonds were amazing and the raisins were so juicy. These fruit and nut snacks are always surprisingly filling.
This consists of mini tomato breadsticks, cheese croutons and tomato, basil and oregano almonds. I loved each of these and it was such a tasty, filling snack.
I am a huge fan of chai lattes so I had high hopes for this one and it did not disappoint. It contained chai seeds, macadamias, yogurt coated sunflower seeds and coconut flakes. Again, the combination of ingrendients worked beautifully together and the yogurt coated sunflower seeds were delicious. If you get a mouthful containing each of the ingredients this really does taste like a Chai latte.
Fruit and Seed Flapjack
I can usually take or leave most flapjacks. I find they are often a little greasy, too dense and a bit monotonous, but Graze flap jacks have changed my mind. They aren't at all greasy and the fruit and seeds in this one really stops it from being too heavy or too monotonous. You get three pieces and I find this so much more filling than it looks. In fact, I often half this and get two snacks out of it. Their Jaffa cake flap jack is also delicious and I am looking forward to trying their new Lemon Curd flapjack.
