We all love snack subscription boxes. If you haven’t tried them, beware—you’ll get addicted! Graze is one great option to promote healthy snacking habits. Each month, they send subscribers eight perfectly portioned snack packs. They have nearly a hundred different snacks you could receive, which are all created by Graze.  

Graze Review - Unboxing

This September Graze review shares my snacks for this month, how you can get your first box free, similar snack subscriptions, and my overall thoughts on the subscription.

Shipping + Packaging

As usual, I received my September Graze shipment at the very end of the month. It came in a pretty purple box (the colors change every month). Upon unboxing, I discovered the typical eight snack packs, the nutritional information sheet, and an extra coupon for a coffee subscription box!

Although the snacks I received are mostly ones I’ve already tried, I still look forward to them because they’re all delicious. When I wrote the first couple of Graze reviews, I was impressed by their options because I chose three different snack filters: vegan, gluten-free, and low in sugar. With these, they just have various fruit and nut medleys, but there are still numerous options.

Graze Review - September

If you don’t choose filters like this, there’s a larger variety of nearly a hundred snacks to choose from! I’ll be reviewing each snack I got below.

Snack Reviews

               Veggie Protein Power

Graze Reviews - Veggie Protein Power and Punchy Protein NutsThis is one of my favorite Graze snacks. It’s made of edamame, spicy chickpeas, and cashews that are seasoned with sea salt and black pepper. It doesn’t look like it’d be tasty, but it’s pretty good.

I’ve never enjoyed cooked edamame, but this snack made me discover that I like it better when dried! This snack pack has just 130 calories. It’s also a great source of protein and fiber!

Graze Review - Sweet Rhubarb Jam Snack Pack

Sweet Rhubarb Jam

This snack pack consists of rhubarb, soft apple pieces, and cranberries. The rhubarb has a unique tart flavor that mixed well with the sweet cranberries and apple pieces. As for nutritional information, this one contains 100 calories, 12% of your daily fiber, and 20g of sugar. It’s a good source of fiber, but there’s no protein.

Garden of England

Garden of England is a yummy mixture of mini strawberries, blackcurrants, and soft apple slices. I thought it was delicious! I’m very picky about dried fruit—especially strawberries—but the texture of these was perfect. There are 80 calories, 19g of carbohydrates, and just 2g of fiber in this. There’s no protein, which is unsurprising since it’s just a fruit mixture.

Graze Review - Garden of England and Vitamin E Defense

Vitamin E Defense

Roasted hazelnuts, redskin peanuts, jumbo raisins, and cranberries combine to create this delicious snack. As you might be able to tell by the name, it’s a great source of Vitamin E and is also high in manganese (which helps protect cells from stress). I enjoyed this combination. Hazelnuts are my favorite nut, so that’s a big part of why I liked it so much. The Vitamin E Defense snack contains 190 calories, 12g of sugar, 10% of daily fiber needs, and 5g of protein. 

Graze Review - Antioxidant Vit. E Nuts

Antioxidant Vitamin E Nuts

These were pretty good—they contained all of my favorite types of nuts! Salted peanuts, brazil nuts, almonds, and pecans combined to create this delicious combination. There wasn’t any seasoning other than the small amount of salt, but they were still delicious.

Jalapeno Cheese Taco

Graze Review - Jalapeno Cheese Taco Review

This is my all-time favorite snack from Graze. It’s so yummy! I wish they made more mixed nut snacks with creative seasoning like this one. It’s made of fava beans, sunflower oil, and chili broad beans. The “cheese” flavoring is made of natural and vegan flavors, which they list in the ingredients. People who regularly eat cheese might not be as happy with the flavor, but I thought it was delicious!

Sweet + Spicy Beet Crunch

This sweet and spicy beet crunch snack is made of dried beet chips, sunflower seeds, and jalapeno chickpeas. A lot of people stated that they didn’t enjoy the texture of the beet chips, but I didn’t mind it. I do think they could’ve been a little more flavorful, but they’re still one of my favorites! I loved the sunflower seeds and the spiciness added from the jalapeno flavoring.

This snack is a good source of fiber and protein, and it has just 100 calories.

Anytime Energizer

This snack is made of dried pears, dried sour cherries, and walnuts. I liked this one as well—it made a delicious salad topper! It provided my meal with extra sweetness, as well as crunch thanks to the walnuts. The chewy and crunchy mixture is the perfect combination. Plus, it has just 150 calories (and a few essential vitamins and minerals)!

Savings Opportunities

Graze offers your first box for free! Although you still have to pay $3.99 for shipping, it’s still a great deal to try out a few of their snacks before committing to the full subscription for $13.99. This trial box contains four snack packs.

If you want to jump right into the full-size subscription, they also offer half off for your first box!

Similar Snack Subscriptions

If you don’t think Graze is the right box for you, you’ll be glad to hear there are many other snack subscription boxes! For one, I’d recommend Urthbox if you have dietary preferences such as gluten-free, low calorie, or vegan. They also offer four different subscription sizes that range from $19.99 to $39.99. This is an exciting way to try snacks from numerous brands every month—you can see what might come in these boxes in my Urthbox reviews!

Naturebox Review - How It Works

Another box I love is Naturebox. Although they have a different subscription setup, their snacks are still a good deal and delicious. They charge $30 per year but give you $5 to spend every month (which is $30 for free)! In my Naturebox reviews, you can find out how to get a free trial, as well as a $20 credit towards your first box!

Additionally, we have a list of the best food subscription boxes that shares our favorite meal kits, more snack boxes, drink subscriptions, and more!

Review Summary
To summarize this Graze review, I enjoyed this month’s box once again and can’t wait to see what I’ll receive in the future. Although some people believe their snacks are overpriced, I think it’s well worth it! The snack packs are easy to bring on the go and are perfectly portioned out. It’s a fun subscription to try out new snacks without breaking the bank.
