Snack subscription boxes are like beauty subscription boxes’ less popular but more relatable friend. (Psst! If you’re here for the goods, AKA FREE STUFF, you can find the code at the bottom of this post!)
I’m not subscribed to any beauty boxes (yet!) but when I heard Blogilates talk about the Graze box on her YouTube channel, I knew I had to use her code for a free first box and give it a try!
The first free box arrived in my mailbox at the beginning of December, as pictured above, with two plastic strips slid on to hold the box shut. Isn’t the box so festive?! Extra points for the reindeer 🙂
When I opened the Graze Box, the lid had a cute holiday print. On the top was a slip of paper. That slip of paper has the Nutrition Facts for all four snacks inside the box.
You can go ahead and make your own decisions about how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ these snacks are for you. Of course, the free box only came with four snacks and there are dozens more possibilities, like soups and flavored popcorn.
Now onto the goodies!
This box was free and comes with 4 snacks. I went online and rated each snack before they were sent to me. You can mark them as Trash, Try, Like, or Love. If you Trash the snack, they won’t ever send it to you. If you mark it Love, they’ll make it first priority to go into your next box. Mark it Try if you want to try it and Like if you liked it but don’t need to prioritize it to go into your next package.
I received four snacks: three I marked as Try, one I marked as Love because I wanted to make sure I could try it!
Clockwise from top left: Peach Cobbler (peach fruit drops, almonds, yogurt seeds & amaretti drops), Thai Sweet Chili Bites (sweet chili sauce with baked soy bites), Apple & Cinnamon Flapjack (rustic rolled oat flapjack with apple and cinnamon), and Zesty Chili Lime Cashews.
For a size comparison of the snack containers, I put it side-by-side with a pack of Trident gum. You can see that they’re pretty small portions and they’re not filled to the brim either. When I turned the cashews on the side, they were only 2/3 of the way full. The Peach Cobbler was only half full. But keep in mind that they’re meant to be portion-controlled snacks to help you make better choices!
The Apple Cinnamon Flapjacks are quite tasty, but there are 12 grams of fat in the one container, so maybe they taste good because of the margarine and sugar?
I haven’t tried the other three snacks because I’m going to give a couple of them to other family members to try, but I will be ordering at least one more normal size box (8 snacks for $11.99). After that, I’ll make up my mind to continue or discontinue my Graze Box!
If you’re interested in getting your 1st and 5th box free, you can use my coupon code above! If you want to copy/paste, the code is:
There is no catch to signing up. You have to put in card information but you will get the first box free and can cancel after the free box if you find it’s not for you. I was planning to just try the first box but when I clicked ‘cancel’, they offered me an 8 snack box for only $5.99, which is half off and only 75¢ per snack (+ free shipping!).
And honestly, I like what I see so far so I might keep going with Graze! They even put a cute little joke inside the box…
