One of my flatmates got an offer through the post to give a friend a "free Graze Box", so I decided to try it! I have had a few of these offers before with orders, but I have never used one. I just decided, what the heck, and went ahead and ordered it! I didn't know what I was getting, so when I opened it to find the above four things, I was met with mixed feelings.
My opinions? Mixed, very mixed.. Would I pay for more? No, probably not.. Why? Read on to find out!

triple berry smoothie graze
Triple Berry Smoothie
This was the first thing I tried, and I hate to say, it was disgusting. The bananas were horrible, and squidgy, the berries were too chewy, and i'm afraid I had to throw this away after not eating much at all. A big no from me!

My Thai
Next up was the thing I was most excited to try, and I was gladly not disapointed! The soy bites made a lovely little mid afternoon snack, and the chilli sauce was beautiful, and sweet, not too spicy at all, just perfect. This one gets a huge thumbs up!

Salted Fudge and Peanut Cookie
I had mixed opinions about this next one, but this could be due to the fact that I am not the hugest fan of peanuts. It was nice enough, but everything just tasted of peanuts! I could fast a hint of chocolate on the mini cookies, and the same for the pieces of fudge, but overall, I think there were too many peanuts on this. Another thing, they were extremely salty, ugh! If you like salted peanuts, you will love this, if not... give it a miss!

Fruit and Seed Flapjack
Last but not least, the fruit and seed flapjack. This was the one I was least excited to try, but it turned out to be my second favourite! I can't explain the taste, just that it was like an average, plain flapjack, but better! I would get this again!

Overall.. I was a little disappointed. These l"Nibble Boxes"  retail for £3.99, which isn/t bad, but when you don't know what you're getting, you can end up not liking half the box, just like I did. Plus, there isn't a lot per punnet, and I think it could work out cheaper just to buy these things at your supermarket.

One major downside in my opinion to these boxes, is the calories, sugar, salt and fat. I thought Graze boxes were supposed to be relatively healthy? This box came to a total of 664 calories, which I thought was quite a lot for a little box of snacks that barely fill you up!
Here is all the nutrient information:





You can see for yourself, the level of carbohydrates, and sugar in particular, are extremely high. According to this article, the daily intake of sugar for a female is 90g, and in this, had I eaten it all, I would have already consumed 59g of sugar! I know these probably aren't made to be consumed in one day, but honestly, one of these barely filled me up, whereas other things i've bought from a shop, which are much less than all these carbs, sugar and calories, would fill me up more.

So that's my opinions on Graze! I think it's a great idea, but I think we should be allowed to pick the products we have, and I also think they need to work on the nutrients. That's just my opinion though! What are your thoughts? I'd love to know!

Until next time!
