Graze Box Review: February 7

Graze just recently moved to an 8-snack box, so this is my last 4-snack box for a while. We will be switching to the eight snacks biweekly instead (maybe they can throw in two sets of that Summer Berry Compote...).

I'm a big fan of these snack boxes, because they have a lot of variety, hit the spot, and are designed to help you avoid oversnacking. The portions are small, but they're just enough.

The first snack I tried was the Apple & Cinnamon Flapjack, as evidenced by the giant bite taken out of one. ;) I was so excited for the snacks that I forgot to take pictures first!! Graze likes the flapjacks - I think we've received a set in every other box, but there are several flavors. All of them have been gone, but I think this is my favorite of the flapjacks I've tried. It's simple, but really yummy.

We also received Chocolate Pecan Pie, which sadly didn't taste like pie. The fudge was okay, but not as good as fudge should be. I love pecans, so I could eat those by themselves. Dates were also in the mix and I was wary of them, because I can't remember if I've even ever had a date before. They tasted fine, though. This was probably my least favorite in the box (sad, since I love chocolate and pecans).

Scandinavian Forest is a mix of dried apples, blueberries, lingonberries, and cherry raisins. As I've said many times, fruit is always a hit. I love berries and this was sweet, but the apples keep it from being too sweet. You could also mix this with the flapjacks for more variety or to tone it down.

Although my husband is really the savory snacks person in the house, I have noticed I do like the savory snacks in these boxes a great deal. I didn't know how I would feel about crispy soy bites, but they were fairly flavorless. Not in a bad way, but in the right way to enjoy the tangy sweet chili sauce. This My Thai snack was great! I love the dips Graze offers (they've all been very good so far). I wish you could buy jars of them, because I would love to have them on hand.
