Graze promises that their foods contain no GMO ingredients, no artificial flavors or colors, no high-fructose corn syrup, and no trans fats.
Graze snacks are always a surprise but they offer a ridiculous number of customization options for setting parameters around what you will and won’t get. There’s a voting system, where you can view example snacks and rate them “try, like, love, or trash,” they have a “dietary preferences” page where you can trash all snacks with any specific ingredient (dairy, for example, or wheat/gluten), and there are preset box categories for limiting yourself to only low calorie, low sugar, high protein, or ‘high energy’ snacks.
They do go to great lengths to say that everything is prepared in the same facility, however, so even though ingredients can be ‘unchecked’ some cross-contamination is still possible (i.e. if you have a severe nut allergy Graze is not for you).
All the snacks are packaged individually, in really cute little boxes with tear-off plastic tops. Be aware that the serving sizes are nutritionist-approved, which means they seem really tiny until you get used to them (at least they did for me).
Here’s what I got:
Spicy Thai Sriracha Crunch, 110 cals Not something I’d hope to get again but I enjoyed it this one time. Not too hot or spicy, but just not a spice flavor I really like. But crunchy and a nice change from all the sweets.
Punchy Protein Nuts, 200 cals Sorry no picture of this one! Must have been so busy eating them I spaced on photographing them, ha. Anyway, this was a mix of chili-lime flavored cashews, pistachio nuts, peanuts, and almonds. It was ‘okay.’ It was cashew-heavy and those are one of my least favorite nuts.
Summary: I enjoyed this box — I thought it was a nice mix of salty and sweet, and of nuts and fruit. I haven’t done much personalizing yet as this is only my second box but I like that they have options for that. At $1.50/snack it is a bit of a splurge compared to what you could make up yourself at the grocery store (especially for these small portions), but the convenience, variety, and fun are worth something for sure. And many of these do make for handy, healthy, purse-friendly snacks for Zeplin.
