Review: Graze

I was recently given the opportunity to receive a free Graze box for review! Graze is a company that sends you hand-selected snacks in a cute little box. You specify on their website which flavor combinations you like and dislike. Based on that, the company choses 4 snacks to send you.
My Graze snacks came in a cute little box. A box contains 4 snacks for a total of $6. I really liked that Graze chose my snacks for me because I absolutely love receiving surprises in the mail. There is something about having someone else choose something for you that makes it more desirable.

Each snack container was pretty small. Here is one next to an Altoids tin to show you a size comparison. I'm pretty sure I could eat all 4 snacks in one sitting if I let myself! But again, the cost is really low ($6) so I wouldn't expect huge portions. It would be nice if Graze offered larger boxes for a slightly higher price because these snacks were so good I was left wanting more!
Here are my 4 snacks:

Herby Bread Basket
This was the first snack I tried, since I was craving something salty when my box came. I loved this one! It contained basil baguettes, garlic crostinis, and oregano rice crackers. It reminded me of a Gardetto's snack mix, but with a healthier and more unique flavor.

Raspberry and Coconut Muffin
This mix contained raspberry cranberries, coconut, amaretti drops, and almond slices.  For me, the amaretti drops were the best part of this mix. I would have been happy to just eat a boxful of amaretti drops! I love anything almond flavored, and coconut is also one of my favorite flavors, so I loved this combination. It was pretty sweet and the perfect little snack to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Chili and Lime Pistachios
The description for this snack is "pistachios roasted with lime and chili". Pistachios are one of the few nuts I enjoy eating, but for some reason I rarely eat them. I liked these, but didn't love them. The chili and lime flavor was very subtle and the pistachio flavor was definitely still the dominant flavor that came through. Adam loves pistachios so I saved most of these for him!

Pina Colada
This tropical mixture contained dried pineapple, coconut, and mango. I felt like the coconut didn't really add anything to this mix. I would have been just fine eating the dried mango and pineapple. I have had dried mango before from Trader Joe's, but I have never eaten dried pineapple. I might have to seek some out now because this was really good!

One feature that would have been nice is a list of ingredients on the snack containers, or at least on my little brochure that came with the box. Instead, ingredients are listed on the website. However, not having the ingredients in front of me certainly did not stop me from devouring my Graze snacks!
Graze has provided me with a coupon code to share with you all! If you would like to try Graze for yourself and get your 1st and 5th box free, please use this code: 7L539ZKQB.
