My Thoughts on Graze Subscription Box


IMG_8581

As a mommy to a 8 month old little guy, I am always on the look out for healthy easy snacks to take with me on the go. When you have a little one, you don’t have much time to yourself or to make something healthy and satisfying. I saw an ad for Graze online and decided to check it out.

Graze is a monthly subscription with the ability to cancel at any time. Graze has a variety of snacks which do Not contain GMOs, No artificial colors/flavors, No high fructose corn syrup, No trans fats. This definitely peaked my interest. Looking at all of the snacks made me feel like I would be receiving delicious healthy snacks that I wouldn’t feel guilty about eating. Each snack is picked by Graze for you based on how you rate the snacks you receive. This subscription isn’t a good fit for someone with nut allergies because from what I saw several of their snacks contain nuts and I believe they are all packaged in the same place. If you have any allergies, I would suggest checking their site before ordering.

They have a few options of packages to choose from: Each 4 snack variety box costs just $6.99, including delivery; Each 8 snack variety box costs just $11.99 including delivery; Each sharing box, containing 5 sharing bags (about 20 servings), costs $25, including delivery.

I received a 4 snack variety box to test out. My box contained a Deconstructed Carrot Cake; Caramel Apple slices; NY Everything Bagel sticks; and Twist of Black Pepper Popcorn.

The deconstructed carrot cake contains carrot chews, cinnamon flavored raisins, walnuts, and ginger fudge. I loved this snack. It tasted exactly like a carrot cake when you combined all of the components. It was such a fun snack to try with my family.

The caramel apple snack was a dipper snack with caramel sauce and dried granny smith apple slices. This definitely tasted like a caramel apple. My little guy loved sucking on the apple slice pieces. I had to share it with him :)

The NY everything bagel sticks are poppy seed onion sesame sticks. Those were my favorite. They are crunchy and taste like an everything bagel. Love them!

The twist of black pepper popcorn was really good. It was popcorn with black pepper and it tasted slightly spicy because of the pepper. I was surprised to like it, but I actually like it better than traditional popcorn.

I have to say I really loved the snacks that Graze picked out for me to try. They are all delicious and satisfying. They are a good single serve size for a snack. I liked having them in my diaper bag for when I was out and about and got hungry.  I loved the packaging and quality. Such a fun box. I would definitely recommend Graze to anyone looking for a healthy tasty snack delivered right to your door. Keep in mind these snacks are single serve sizes. I would like to thank Graze for sending these samples to me for me to try out. I loved them!

If you have a subscription box that you are loving please let me know in the comments down below. XO :)

My Naturebox Review: 5 Snacks


IMG_1488_edit

As a mommy I am always looking for healthy, tasty, and cost effective snacks for my family. I saw the ad for Naturebox on Facebook and couldn’t resist trying it. They were advertising the first box being free and cancellation at any time if unsatisfied. There was nothing to lose in my opinion.

The Naturebox of 5 snacks normally costs $19.95 per month. You can change the frequency in which you have it delivered and you can also choose a smaller box with 3 snacks. On their website you create an account and can choose which snacks you want to try. The more snacks you choose the better the chance of receiving only items you want to try in the event that something is out of stock.

I chose 5 snacks: Asiago and Cheddar Cheese Crisps, Honey Dijon Pretzels, Cheddar and Onion Sunflower Kernels, Pistachio Power Clusters, and Peanut Butter Nom Noms.

The box arrived a couple of days sooner than it said it would which was a pleasant surprise. I received my top 5 choices which was great. The packaging is inviting and the bags with the snacks are resealable which is convenient.

naturebox asiago and cheddar crisps

1. Asiago and Cheddar Cheese Crisps- These came in a 3.5 oz bag, a good amount of them in the bag. They are crunchy and cheesy. They taste healthy and delicious. To me they tasted similar to gold fish crackers and cheese-its but crispier and more natural tasting. I prefer these. If you like gold fish crackers and cheese-its you will really love these.

naturebox honey dijon pretzels

2. Honey Dijon Pretzels- These came in a 5 oz bag, a nice amount of them in the bag. They tasted exactly like the honey dijon pretzels i’m used to buying at the supermarket. I must say the pretzel nuggets are slightly bigger and they aren’t as heavily coated with seasoning, which I was happy about. They are very good. If you like honey dijon pretzels you will love these.

naturebox cheddar and onion sunflower kernels

3. Cheddar and Onion Sunflower Kernels- These came in a 5 oz bag, nice almost full bag. These tasted good but the seasoning/flavor was light and hard to tell that it was cheddar and onion. These tasted really good just not what I expected when you think cheddar and onion. I expected a stronger flavor.

naturebox pistachio power clusters

4. Pistachio Power Clusters- These came in a 3 oz bag, a decent amount in the bag. These are my favorite! They are so delicious and addicting. They are nut squares with almonds, cashews, and pistachios. I wish there were more in the bag because I can’t get enough of these. They are healthy and satisfying.

naturebox peanut butter nom noms

5. Peanut Butter Nom Noms- These came in a 3.7 oz bag, only 5 cookies in the bag. These are mini peanut butter oat cookies. They remind me very much chewy granola/oatmeal cookies. They are very good as well and each is a nice hefty weight and are filling. I just wish there were more in the bag.

 

I must say I was very pleased with my box. Everything was delicious and satisfying. The Pistachio Power Clusters were my favorites with the Asiago and Cheddar Cheese Crisps being my second favorite. I would say my least favorite were the Cheddar and Onion Sunflower Kernels not because they weren’t good, they definitely were, but because the flavor was lighter than I would have liked.

I definitely recommend Naturebox to anyone who is looking for healthy snacks and variety delivered right to your door. I have to say, however, that if you are a family on a budget $19.95/month for the 5 bags might be on the pricey side especially since the bags aren’t very big. They do offer to skip months or change the frequency which could definitely help. XO
