I have lots of other stuff to write about, but first, the snack reviews.


Protein Peanut Butter Dipper with Pretzel Sticks: The name of this pretty much says it all. It has 130 calories and 5 grams of protein. It’s not very exciting, but it is a good snack for times when you need something that feels reasonably substantial.

Twist of Black Pepper Popping Corn: This is 130 calories worth of microwave popcorn with a little bit of black pepper. You wouldn’t think that is revelatory, but it really is ever so much tastier than ordinary popcorn. The serving size is perfect, too. So good.

Baobab and Raspberry Clusters: This is a mix of baobab and raspberry coconut chips, dried apple pieces, and pumpkin seeds. It has 130 calories. I like the moderate level of sweetness and the mix of textures. Interesting and tasty.

Thai Tom Yum: This is a soup paste, that you reconstitute with hot water. In addition to paste, the soup also has zucchini slices, red pepper, and rice noodles. It has 50 calories. It Is a bit high in sodium (810 mg) but still not as high as most soups. Overall, it’s nicely spicy and a reasonable light lunch.

Jelly Doughnut: This is a mix of vanilla cookie drops, raspberry fruit strings, and almond slivers. It has 120 calories. I think it’s one of the more convincing deconstructed dessert items Graze offers. That is, it really tastes a lot like a jelly doughnut. Delicious.

Veggie Protein Power (new): This is a mix of edamame beans, spicy chickpeas, and black pepper cashews. It has 130 calories and 7 grams of protein. I was surprised by how much I liked this. It has lots of both spicy flavor and crunchy texture, so perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised. An excellent savory snack.

Summer Berry Flapjack: This is a typical Graze flapjack, i.e. a soft oat granola bar. In this case, it has dried cranberries, some of which are infused with strawberry and raspberry flavors. It has 240 calories. That would be a downside, but this is filling enough to be a meal substitute. And, really, Graze’s flapjacks are awesome. This isn’t my favorite of them, but it is still quite nice.

Lemon Almond Cookies and Tea (new): This consists of two cookies and a bag of black tea. It has 110 calories. The tea is just ordinary black tea. The cookies are fairly tasty, though they could be more zippy. They were good, mind you, just milder than I would have preferred.
