What is a Graze Box?

We all love to snack a little, but our diets are becoming increasingly bad thanks to it. It's bad for our bodies and our waistline! So we need to start changing the way we snack and what we snack on. That's where Graze boxes come in.

Graze Box is a UK based company which started a few years ago to supply people with a healthy alternative to the usual commercial snacks. And the best thing is that they are all delivered by mail in handy single portion sized boxes. Each Graze Box contains 4 single serving portions. Great for taking with you when you are on the go, or keeping in your handbag or office drawer, so you've always got a healthy snack conveniently to hand when you start to feel peckish.

To make it even easier for you each packet comes with a little card telling you all the nutritional information for the pack. Including calories and fruit portions!

How it works?

Ok so the site is super simple. You sign up to create yourself an account, then decide how often you want your Graze box delivered. You can have it anything from everyday to once a fortnight. (I usually go once a week). Boxes are charged at £3.89 a box and that includes your delivery.

Then you can browse through all the boxes available and take off items you don't want to receive - for instance if you have an allergy or don't like something. I'm allergic to black pepper and can't eat anything spicy so took off anything with black pepper and the chilli or spice coated items. You can also highlight items you would really like to try. They will then send you a surprise box made up of 4 of the items on offer. You don't have to rate anything if you don't want then they will just send you a random selection of any of the items.

After you have received and enjoyed your box you can then log on and rate the items you received as to whether you want them again, frequently, occasionally or not again.

You are able to alter your delivery time when ever as long as the box isn't being prepared or in the post, plus you can take a break off if your away for example, or take a month or two off if you just fancy a break. Or just cancel your order if you no longer want to receive them at all. Its very simple, flexible and user friendly.

What can you get in your graze box

The list of items you can get is huge. They come under 11 main categories - although the amazing Graze team is constantly adding and developing new lines. Currently these are the options:

  • Dips and dippers
  • Gluten free high tea
  • Breads
  • Crackers
  • Flapjacks
  • Olives
  • Natural Treats
  • Dried fruit and nut mixes
  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit
  • Seeds

These are a few of my favourite:

  1. After DInner Mint - A mixture of mint infused sultanas, blanched almonds and dark chocolate buttons
  2. Billionaire Shortbread - A mixture of fudge pieces, blanched almonds, milk chocolate drops and cranberries
  3. Apple and cinnamon flapjack
  4. Bonnie wee Oatcakes - Cheese and chive oatcakes with red onion marmalade
  5. Pina Colada - dried pineapple, mango and coconut flakes

How do I get a free Graze Box?

Just use this link to Graze Box to get your first box for free! Its really that easy! It's UK only at the moment though sorry.

Sign up using the link to get a free box, but you will need to put in your payment details. You can cancel the order as soon as your first box arrives if you do not wish to continue them though. But I warn you they get addictive! They are so yummy and having snacks delivered to your door is fun and so convenient!

      Wow these look lovely!

      I never heard of them, although I live in the UK for more than half a year now. But I will give it a try if I can persuade my husband to buy one :)

      Voted up + interesting!

      This is fantastic! I think this something that should be done over here, too. Getting healthy snacks is one of the hardest parts of eating right, and snacking is a time of temptation. (I speak from experience!) I love the idea and I hope they do well, and maybe market to Canada. Voted up and more, and sharing!

      Wow, cool hub! i have not heard of this, but it sounds like an awesome alternative! Looks like it would be great for small parties or get togethers. Voted up!

      What a great idea, convenient and healthy. Let's be honest, most of our unhealthy eating is purely due to the convenience.

      Shared, up and interesting.

      Great new idea. It certainly beats the trips to the unhealthy vending machines. It is too bad that we don't have it here in the US, but I bet it won't be long before someone makes it happen. Voted up.

      That is a really great idea. And so cute packaged in that box. Better than all that junk food people normally snack on.

      Daisy,

      I was heartbroken at the end of this hub when you mentioned it is UK only! :) Thanks for sharing though, and I will eagerly be awaiting its migration to the US! I think I would enjoy the billionaire shortbread! :)

      Oh I'm sorry, maybe you should send them an email and tell them to start up in the US! Lol!

      This graze box sounds great and how neat is it that you don't have to worry about blowing your diet plus it's so convenient. I hope the company expands, we don't have anything like that here. Great hub, voting up!

      This company came up with a great idea--fun stuff! Thanks for highlighting Graze Box. I'm looking forward to learning more about their product and the company's plans for the future. Lucky UK! :) I'm sure we will see it here before long though--it's too neat of an idea not to either immigrate over to us or be picked up by someone here.

      Yep I totally agree, I think they should take it over to the states too. It is really popular here so would do well in the US. Glad you liked the hub
