Protein Peanut Butter Dipper: This is just peanut butter with pretzel sticks to dip into it. It has 130 calories. The peanut butter is the natural kind, which needed stirring. On the plus side, it wasn’t salty, but it was also not very interesting. Just okay.

Peanut Butter & Jelly:This consists of baked salted peanuts, raspberry fruit strings, and vanilla fudge. It has 220 calories. This is a really nice mixture, particularly if you eat the various components together. The raspberry fruit strings are particularly good, but the salty peanuts help a lot to balance them out.

Kettlecorn Kern Pops: These are half-popped corn kernels with a sweet and salty coating. They have 130 calories. This has grown on me the more I get it. I still prefer my crunchy snacks to be more savory, but this is pretty tasty once in a while.

Vitamin E Defense: This is a mixture of roasted hazelnuts, redskin peanuts, jumbo raisins, and cranberries. It has 190 calories. It’s a decent combination, but nothing really special. You can do just as well with any trail mix combo from, say, Trader Joe’s.

Cinnamon Apple Pie: This consists of cinnamon dusted apple pieces, yogurt coated raisins, and almonds. It has 160 calories. I wish the apple pieces were bigger and the almonds (which are whole) were chopped. That would make it better balanced and easier to eat the different components together. As it is, I found that I ran out of apple pieces too quickly. I also should note that the yogurt raisins are exceptionally good, which surprised me as they weren’t something I expected to like.

Louisiana Wild Rice & Beans: This is a mixture of wild rice sticks and chili broad beans. It has 140 calories. This is one of Graze’s spicier snacks – which is fine by me, but may not be to everyone’s taste. Crunch and heat is exactly what I like in a savory snack, so I found this very enjoyable.

Sweet & Spicy Beet Crunch: This consists of dried beet chips, sunflower seeds, and jalapeno chickpeas. It has 100 calories. I like this, though it could be spicier. The beet chips are quite tasty, in particular. The sunflower seeds don’t really contribute much, however.

Deconstructed Carrot Cake:This contains carrot chews, cinnamon raisins, ginger fudge, and walnuts. It has 180 calories. This is quite tasty, as long as one doesn’t expect it to taste a lot like carrot cake. But I wish the walnuts were in smaller pieces, as they run out before the other ingredients do. I should also note that the ginger fudge is the best of the fudge squares that Graze offers.
