Trying out the Graze Box

This seems like a fitting topic for today because I’ve been hit with a case of hardy core munchies. Not sure if it’s the increased activity the past couple days, the weather, or a mix of other factors that’s making me want to chow down, but I’m in serious “eat all the things” mode.

I’m usually able to keep my snacking in check, though it’s easier when I have portion-controlled things. Enter the Graze Box. My friend sent me a code for this a few weeks ago, and I decided to give it a try.

The box comes with four different snack packs pre-selected by Graze for you to try. You then give the snack a rating on the website. If you like it, they’ll send it to you occasionally. If you love it, they’ll send it more often. If you hate it, you can select trash and they’ll take it off the list of things to send.

You can browse the snack catalog and mark things you want to try. You can also choose to receive lower calorie options if you’d like, though the regular options are in the recommended calorie range for a small snack.

Graze allows you to pick how often you want a box sent to you (I chose to receive a box every two weeks), and each box is $6, though with the shared code I’m going to give you, you can get your first box and your fifth box for free.

Things I liked: Trying new snacks is awesome. I forget there are other kinds of healthy things out there besides what I’m used to. The portion control is good, and the snacks from my first box were tasty and satisfying.

Things I’m not sure about: Though I like the portion sizes, four snacks isn’t going to last long, so I have to exert some self control if I want to make the box last more than a day. Since it’s a subscription service, they automatically draw from your bank account.  I don’t mind this in itself, but unless I get a reminder email, I’m likely to forget to record the debit. Also, part of me thinks six dollars is okay for something fun delivered right to me, but I’m not entirely sure. I’m going to give it until my fifth box to decide. Luckily, you can cancel at any time.

If you want to try it out, just go to the Graze website and sign up. You can use the code RTTK3NY1B to get your first and fifth boxes free. I get mine sent to my work, but you can have it sent to your house as well. If you try it, let me know what you think!

Question: Do you subscribe to any delivery services like this one?
Bonus question: What’s your favorite go-to snack?

*Like most of the things I talk about here, Graze didn’t put me up to this. I just wanted to share this with my readers.
