Office Snacking Made Easy: Graze

I learned about Graze through Sarah at Healthy Simple Smart.  As soon as I saw her post, I knew I needed to try this service out.

For $6 per box, Graze will deliver individually sized snacks to your home or office.  I chose to have my boxes sent to my office, since that’s where I do most of my snacking.  You have two options:  The Nibble box, which is an assortment of over 90 different snacks, or the Calorie Counter box, which only features snacks less than 150 calories.  Obviously, I chose the Nibble box; a 50 calorie snack is totally useless to me.  You can also choose to have deliveries once per week, or every other week.

My favorite part about this service is that you can rate the snacks you’re given–after every delivery, you can visit the website and tell them what you thought.  If you “like” something, they’ll send it to you occasionally.  If you “love” something, they’ll send it to you more often.  You can also “trash” something, and they’ll never send it to you again.  All of the snacks default to “try”, meaning they’ll send it to you once so you can taste it, and then decide later if you like it, love it, or want to trash it.

Using the website, you can totally customize your boxes–if you have dietary restrictions, allergies, or aversions, you can make sure you are never sent something you won’t/can’t eat.  There are multiple categories for the snacks, so you can explore easily.  Each delivery contains 4 snacks with specific nutritional information for each snack.

My first box had:

  • Salted Fudge and Peanut Cookie:  baked salted peanuts, fudge pieces, mini chocolate cookies and redskin peanuts (220 calories, 7 g protein)
  • Scrumptious Blueberry Swirl:  blueberry yogurt raisins, raspberry infused cranberries and blackcurrants (150 calories, less than 1 g protein)
  • Smoky BBQ Corn:  jumbo salted corn and smoked cashews (140 calories, 4 g protein)
  • Fruity Mango Chutney:  fruity mango chutney with black pepper dippers (80 calories, less than 1 g protein)

All of these snacks were delicious.  I would definitely eat any of them again, however, I “trashed” the mango chutney simply because the calorie count and protein are so low–I’d rather receive other snacks that are more filling.

So far, I’m really excited about Graze, and I’m actually planning to switch from every other week to weekly deliveries.  $6 is a great price, especially considering that when I buy snacks at the grocery store, I spend way more than that.  These snacks are portion controlled, so I’m less likely to over eat, and they are super tasty.

If you’re interested in trying Graze, please consider using my invitation code:  W5TZXP36B.  If you use this code, your first and 5th box are free (first box is free anyway), and if 2 of you use my referral code, I get a free box too!  Sarah, if you’re reading this, I was going to use your referral code but I missed the box to enter it–I’m sorry!

I was not asked to review Graze, and I was not compensated in any way for this post.  I purchased the service myself, and all opinions expressed are my own.

    Graze sounds awesome! I really wish I were allowed to keep food at my desk – one downside of working in an archive – because something like this would be perfect for keeping me away from the vending machines. Hmm… maybe I need to brainstorm something… 🙂 Thanks for the review!

        It was definitely a rough transition! At my last job I had a stash of dried fruit and chocolate, and ate at my desk regularly. I guess in a way not being able to eat lunch at my desk is a good thing – it gets me moving! I used to be pretty bad about that – but those times when I just need a little something… yeah, it’s a pain.

    This is awesome! I usually stress over what kind of snacks I have around here during the day and this is such a cool alternative. And I, too, REALLY want to try Stridebox!

      I definitely need to switch to every week delivery. My only criticism (if I can call it that) is that I wish it had 5 snacks instead of four so I had one for every work day. Other than that, I’m sold.

      I think I’m gonna try Stridebox in a few weeks, once I pay off my credit card -_-

    I’ve seen this around lately, but I did just take the plunge using your code. I have really odd restrictions but I am hoping it works out. My coworkers will be super happy with I don’t like though, so it’s a win win. 🙂 Thanks!

    • DarlinRae says:

      Hey, thanks! I hope it works well for you. The good news is it looks like you can cancel at any time, so if you aren’t happy, you’re not stuck with it.

    I actually get Graze deliveries to my office as well! But I actually just decided to cut back on them because a lot of the snack are not paleo friendly, but they are yummy! I love the peach cobbler!
