Grilled Cheese: This is a mix of hickory smoked almonds, mustard breadsticks, and cheddar cheese bruschetta. It has 120 calories. I thought this had an excellent mix of flavors, with the almonds providing a nice hint of smokiness. Very tasty.
Deconstructed Carrot Cake: This is a mix of carrot chews, cinnamon flavored raisins, walnuts, and ginger fudge. It has 180 calories. This is one of the more convincing deconstructed desserts that graze offers. I like the cinnamon and ginger flavors, too. It could, however, be a bit better balanced, perhaps with smaller walnut pieces so it is easier to eat all the components together.
Booster Seeds: This is a mixture of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed. It has 200 calories - and 9 grams of protein. This is a good combination, but not particularly interesting. And the flaxseed is a pain, since the seeds are so small. It is particularly irritating when you spill a bunch of this on your desk, not that I would know anything about that.
Original Fruity Flapjack: This is a soft granola bar, with dried apricots, dates, raisins, currants, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. It has 230 calories. The dominant flavor is definitely from golden syrup, which is not something I’d ever really complain about. There is a nice balance of textures, with the chewiness of the bar and the crunch of the seeds. Very good.
Kettlecorn Kern Pops: These are half-popped corn kernels with a sweet and salty flavoring. The package has 130 calories. I like the texture, but I really prefer the more savory types of kern pops to these, which I think are just okay.
The Cheese Board: This is a mix of cheese-flavored cashews, cheddar cheese bruschetta, and baked herb bites. It has 110 calories. This is a pretty nice savory snack – and I’m not even a big cheese person. The cashews are particularly good.
Fantastic Forest Fruits: This is a mix of dried apple slices, blueberries, lingonberries, and cherry-flavored raisins. It has 80 calories. I think this combination leans a bit too much on the tart side, with the lingonberries tipping the balance. The blueberries get pretty much drowned out by the other flavors. Okay, but there are other dried fruit snacks I prefer.
Snickerdoodle Dip: This is a cookie dip, with cinnamon pretzel sticks to dip into it. It has 150 calories. This is one of my favorite Graze sweet snacks. Insanely delicious and a good argument for the built-in portion control.
