Graze

Graze boxes are aimed at snackers, those who like to nibble (or indeed graze) on little bits and bobs during the day. They’re very popular with office workers and I’m sure they’ve saved many a desk-jockey from reaching for the biscuits.

For just under £4 a time, Graze will send you four punnets of savoury and sweet snacks. I have a delivery on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; and most of the time I have them for my breakfast and lunch.

Tip – Mixing the dried fruit selection with natural yogurt makes for a lovely breakfast.

There’s a choice of boxes – the “nibble” box offers a bit of everything from their huge range of snacks, and the three nutrition boxes (eatwell, light and boost), just sends the healthier treats to keep calorie count down and nutrition values up. My box for today is a light box and contains:

  • Sun Dance – a mixture of dried mango, milk chocolate coated sunflower seeds and green raisins (138 calories).

  • Boston Baguettes – tasty little breadsticks with a delicious BBQ relish (84 calories).

  • Cheddar Gorge – cheese cashews, salsa corn sticks and herb crackers (139 calories).

  • Eleanor’s Apple Crumble – dried apple, sultanas and cinnamon honey almonds (115 calories).

The flavour combination of all their mixes are amazing. In the sweets, my favourites so far have been Jaffa Cake and Hazelnut Espresso. In the savouries, Boston Baguettes and Korean Chilli Rice Crackers. They also do deli breads and ‘guilt free high tea’ which comprises of a delicious square of cake and an afternoon infusion tea bag. All very nice, and feels indulgent when calorie-wise it’s really good value.

If you get anything in your box you really don’t like, go into your account online and “bin” it, you’ll never see it again. Similarly if you love something, click on “love” in the product list and you’ll see it in your box again soon.
