Graze Box #20

Lightly Salted Popping Corn (repeat): I get this popcorn fairly often. It’s a good sized portion, with 130 calories, and pops up well, with few widows. It isn’t particularly exciting, since it isn’t as if I can’t buy perfectly good microwave popcorn pretty much anywhere, but it is perfectly fine.

Caramel Apple (repeat): The dried apple slices are in lots of Graze snacks, but the sticky caramel sauce is unique to this one. The container has 80 calories, which is pretty low for a sweet treat. And I continue to think that the caramel sauce is awesome.

Salted Fudge and Peanut Cookie (repeat): This mix of baked salted peanuts, mini cocoa cookies, redskin peanuts, and vanilla fudge has 230 calories. While it is sweet, it is also decently high in protein (7 grams), so I feel okay about it nutritionally. I’ve gotten this several times and continue to like it.

Soy Roasted Seeds (repeat): This consists of roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds with soy sauce. It’s got 200 calories and 7 grams of protein. More significantly, it has only 90 mg of sodium, which is quite good for a salty snack. It’s not super exciting, admittedly, but it’s handy for times when you want something crispy and salty.

Sweet Rhubarb Jam (repeat): This is a dried fruit mix of rhubarb slices, soft apple pieces, and cranberries. It has 110 calories. I think it’s very tasty and like the balance of sweet and tart flavors. It’s one of my favorites of their fruit snacks.

Cinnamon Apple Pie (new): This has cinnamon dusted apple pieces, yogurt coated raisins, and almonds. It’s 160 calories. It doesn’t really taste like apple pie to me, but that is largely because I think the point of a pie is the crust. The yogurt coated raisins are surprisingly nice, but the almonds are bland and the apple pieces could use more cinnamon. As is typical for Graze’s deconstructed dessert items, it is best to eat the different components together. That’s a bit difficult in this case, as the almonds are whole ones and on the large side. Overall, I thought this was okay, but not fabulous.

Herby Bread Basket (repeat): This is a mixture of basil baguettes, garlic crostini, and oregano rice crackers. It has 90 calories. Overall, it’s a nice savory snack, with lots of herb flavor. Overall, this is nice and crunchy, making a good savory snack.

Peaches and Cream (repeat): This consists of disks of white chocolate, peach drops, vanilla cookie drops, and coconut flakes. It has 150 calories. I found this thoroughly delicious, even though I would not normally combine peaches with chocolate. (Yes, I know, white chocolate is not really chocolate, but it is close.) As usual, it is best to combine components, instead of eating them separately. I upgraded this to "love."
