My first graze box

I've seen a few posts on the graze box craze recently, and it's a brand which I've been wanting to try for a while now. So, I decided to take the plunge and order my first box for free using a code from Lizzy Lips (thanks!). I ordered the box on Monday and it was delivered today, which I think is really great, and I've been given the option of having the box delivered any day of the week. Each box costs £3.49 (including delivery) so it's a little bit pricey, but I think I can afford to get one box a week as a bit of a treat!

I chose the nibble box as I really want to try different things and get a good variety, but there are a variety of nutrition boxes you can choose too, which I would definitely consider if I could afford more boxes and wanted to use it as part of a "diet".


My box arrived with the post at work this morning and I was really excited to open it! You get four snacks in each box, with a leaflet to tell you which snacks you have and nutritional information about each one. I really enjoyed that this leaflet was personalised, it was a nice touch!

First up, was the Apple and Cinnamon Flapjack which replaced my normal morning snack of go ahead fruit slices. I wasn't sure if I'd like it as I'm not a big fan of cinnamon but the flavours were nice and subtle and not overpowering which was really nice as at 11am.

Next I tried the Rustic Marble Bread which was baked with tomato, herb and provolone cheese. This was really nice and the label even recommended that it should be eaten quickly as the bread is baked fresh. This was really nice and tasty, but did feel slightly strange as a snack (not sure why) and the flavours could have done with being a bit stronger, especially the cheese. I ate this at lunchtime, but it didn't replace anything, so I think in the future I would eat this instead of one part of my lunch.
Mid-afternoon I tucked into Yin & Yang, which was definitely my favourite of the day, the punnet contained cherries, dark chocolate buttons, jumbo raisins and almonds and it was delicious. I'm a big fan of fruit and nut, and this had the sour and sweet in perfect balance. I ate this instead of my afternoon box of raisins, so guessing it was more calorific than that, but I enjoyed it a lot more.

Finally, I had The Firecracker, which is a mix of Korean chilli rice crackers, spicy peanuts and salsa corn stick. This was a bit on the hot side for me, and I shared it with my colleagues because I just couldn't manage the whole thing! It was really tasty but the tingle afterwards was a bit too much to bare.

Apparently, I'll get my fifth box free, so I'll get five boxes for the price of three, which I think is pretty good and after five I'll decide if I want to carry on!

If you'd like to try your first graze box for free please use my code: 9NW327J

I get a Graze box every week. My boss gets really annoyed though cos I got other people in the office to sign up too so we have deliveries nearly every day! haha. I crossed most things out for ym choices as I hate anything sweet, and I dislike most of the seeds. The olives are glorious though!

I use to get these when they first started and I have to say I preferred them when they had fresh fruit in!
