I recently received a code for a free graze box so thought I'd give it a try. I'd heard of graze before but I'm not the healthiest person on the planet so I'd always just shrugged it off until now. I can't resist a freebie so I signed up which only took a few minutes. At first I thought I'd be able to choose what I wanted in my box but seemingly not. On the plus side it stopped me selecting all the sweet treats and encouraged forced me to try healthy alternatives. 

I opted for the nibble box which contains four snacks. I thought each one would be placed freely in a compartment for some reason so I was pleasantly surprised to find each snack in a sealed packet. It means they're perfect for on the go and I can pop one in my bag if I'm at uni or out for the day. The parcel is letterbox size so it was conveniently posted through my door and waiting for me when I arrived home.

Some of the snacks on the website weren't to my liking but I was impressed with the four snacks I received which were banana split (banana, fudge, honey almond silvers and pumpkin seeds), dark rocky road (Belgian dark chocolate buttons, cranberries and pecan nuts), fruit and seed flapjacks (rustic rolled oat flapjacks with mixed seeds and dried fruits) and pomodoro rustichella (cheese croutons, tomato baguettes and tomato and herb almonds). 

They were all pretty yummy, especially dark rocky road which had giant Belgian chocolate buttons in *insert heart eyed emoji here*. I don't like banana so I may have sifted through and ate all the mini fudge pieces instead. Okay... I definitely did do that. Can you tell I've got a sweet tooth? I'm not usually a fruit and nut kinda gal but graze made it that little bit easier to incorporate healthier alternatives into my diet.

Overall I'm really pleased with my graze box and at a price of £3.79 with free delivery I think it's great value for money. Graze has a nifty little rating system whereby you rate the snacks online, bin certain snacks you don't want sent again and request snacks you'd like in future boxes. They also cater for a range of dietary requirements which is a bonus if you fall into that category.

Despite this rave review, because of my student budget I don't think I'd order a box every week or two. Through budgeting I've noticed that little things like this add up so it's best to opt out before you get sucked in. I like my food and I think graze has got it spot on with its concept, but in all honestly, I'd rather buy myself a little treat in Boots. Hello inner beauty blogger.

    1. Yeah I know what you mean. I guess the rating system in in place to try and avoid that from happening but if you don't like all four snacks every time then it's not worth it. Agreed, the dark rocky road I had was dreamy!X

  2. I used to get it, and really enjoyed getting some treats through the post and weirdly I feel it taught me a lot about portion sizing, especially for snacks but like you, it was just too much money weekly so I cancelled my subscription. Maybe I'll treat myself to the odd box every now and again though!
