Graze is a subscription box service that delivers single-servings of snacks right to your door. Graze is designed for those who want a healthier alternative to the traditional snacks found in your local grocery or convenience store. You can choose a 4-pack snack box for $6.99 or an 8-pack snack box for $11.99. You can also opt to have these delivered once a week, once every two weeks, or once every four weeks depending upon your needs. I ordered the 8-pack snack box.

First, let me start off by informing you that graze is NOT suitable for those with food allergies. Graze packages all of their food in the same location, therefore cross-contamination may occur. You can customize your snack box by dietary preference, however you cannot choose each snack that will arrive in your box. When I ordered, I was able to select vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free options. You can also choose to remove items containing nuts, bananas, chocolate, cranberries, pineapple, raisins, as well as snacks that contain spicy food. Graze uses your dietary preferences to design your boxes for you. Any snacks that you do not like, you can “trash” in your profile so that you do not receive them again. I’ve chosen a select few of the snacks for you to preview below.

The Cons:

  • Expensive for those who are on a budget
  • Subscribers are unable to choose their own snacks

  • Lots of products that contain soy
  • Although marketed as a healthier alternative, I thought some of the ingredients were still questionable

My Final Thoughts

Graze is a convenient service for those who want to try new snack combinations. However, this is a service that I personally would not use due to the price point and questionable ingredients. Maltodextrin , modified starch , and palm oil are just a few of several ingredients that stood out to me.

 

If you would like to try out the graze box for yourself, you can get your 1st and 5th box free with my unique code: DY5F47JVB As always, if you have any questions about my graze experience, please feel free to leave them in the comment section below.
