Graze Box #39

I have Graze snoozed for a few weeks for vacation (and a little beyond because their vacation algorithm is weird). So this is the last of these entries for the year.

Lemon Drizzle Flapjack: This is a rolled oat flapjack (i.e. soft granola bar) with a lemon yogurt drizzle on top. It has 240 calories. This is one of my very favorite Graze snacks – deliciously citrusy with a satisfyingly chewy texture.

Thai Sweet Chilli Dippers: This consists of a sweet chili sauce with soy-rice crackers to dip into it. It has 83 calories. The sauce was reformulated a while ago and is both spicier and less sweet than it used to be. That’s a good thing in my opinion. But the sauce is also gloppy in texture, so a bit messier to eat than some.

Raspberry & Coconut Muffin: This is a mixture of raspberry-infused cranberries, coconut, amaretti drops, and almonds. It has 140 calories. The mixture is pretty tasty, though a bit heavier on the coconut than I’d prefer. Overall, a reasonably good sweet snack.

Chocolate Pretzel Dipper: This consists of a chocolate hazelnut dip, with pretzel sticks to dip into it. It has 140 calories. I get this a lot and continue to like it. If you like Nutella, you would probably like this.

Mocha Walnut Cake (new): This is a mixture of walnuts, raisins, and milk chocolate coated coffee beans. It has 190 calories. Chocolate-covered coffee beans are a wonderful thing, but there aren’t really quite enough of them, compared to the walnuts and raisins. This is still quite good, but if the ratio of components were better, it could be sublime.

Sweet Memphis Barbecue:This consists of salsa-flavored peanuts, wild rice sticks, and BBQ-flavored peas. It has 190 calories and 7 grams of protein. It’s a nice, slightly spicy savory snack, with lots of crunch. Overall, a good combination of flavor and texture.

Smokin’ Protein Kick: This is a mixture of chili lemon broad beans, hickory smoked almonds, and roasted pumpkin seeds. It has 170 calories and 8 grams of protein. It’s not bad, but the broad beans actually have too much lemon flavor and the pumpkin seeds are not very interesting. Overall, there are other savory snacks I prefer.

Garden of England: This is a mixture of dried apple slices, dried miniature strawberries, and black currants. It has 80 calories. I think this is my favorite Graze fruit snack, because the strawberries are so very good and the currants provide a nice touch of tartness to balance things out. It had been a while since I’d gotten this, so I was glad to see it back.
