Graze Box #40

My Graze subscription has restarted, following my vacation.

Salted Fudge & Peanut Cookie: This consists of salted peanuts, redskin peanuts, mini chocolate cookies, and vanilla fudge. It has 230 calories. This is a good mix of sweet and salty. The fudge doesn’t really contribute much but sweetness, however.

Pizza Margherita: This is a mixture of basil crunchini, cheese cashews, and mini tomato breadsticks. It has 120 calories. Crunchini seems to be a fancy term for croutons. The breadsticks don’t have a lot of tomato flavor and the whole thing isn’t particularly pizza-like, in my opinion. However, this is still a good savory snack, particularly if you eat all of the components together.

Lightly Salted Popping Corn: This is 130 calories worth of microwave popcorn. There’s not really much more than that to say about it.

Baobab & Raspberry Clusters: This is a mixture of baobab and raspberry coconut clusters with apple pieces and pumpkin seeds. It has 130 calories. This is an excellent sweetish snack. The baobab clusters have a definite berry flavor, which mixes well with the apple pieces. And the pumpkin seeds add some protein. This sort of unusual snack is precisely why I subscribe to graze.

Sweet Rhubarb Jam: This is a mixture of rhubarb slices, dried apple slices, and dried cranberries. It has 100 calories. I like this a lot because the tartness of the rhubarb and cranberries balances the sweetness of the apples well. Delicious.

Billionaires’ Shortbread (new): This is a mixture of Belgian milk chocolate drops, almonds, cranberries, and fudge. It has 210 calories. This is an excellent sweet snack, with a blend of flavors that combine well. I upgraded it to from "like" to "love."

Sweet Mustard Ranch: This is a mix of mustard breadsticks, poppyseed pretzels, and sour cream and onion cashews. It has 130 calories. This is just okay. I like the pretzels and the cashews, but the mustard breadsticks are just a bit weird. That’s probably because I prefer my mustard spicy, not sweet.

Caramel Apple: This consists of dried apple slices with a caramel sauce. It has 80 calories. The caramel sauce is just about perfect, presumably because they use golden syrup in making it. Absolutely delicious.
