When I was 16, I managed to land my first-weekend job in my local pub’s kitchen, washing pots and pans and eating stock on the sly. After receiving my inches of disposable income every Friday evening, I would religiously spend my weekend pay-packet on items such as Hollister t-shirts, issues of the NME, Greggs cheese and onion pasties, Miss Sporty canary yellow nail varnish and a weekly Graze box subscription.
Graze snack boxes allowed me to believe at 16 that food was not just for eating – it was for enjoying, savouring and indulging in too. Not every snack had to be a disgusting coco-pops breakfast bar or a blueberry Alpen stick.
Since discovering the snacking brand, I have tasted the delights of the granola gods via their breakfast boxes (RIP), been transported to flavour heaven thanks to their range of brownies and I honestly don’t think I will ever be getting enough of their spicy sriracha crunch. It has been a fruitful six years of on-and-off dating.
I recently re-started my Graze subscription on a monthly basis. For just £3.99 I have my monthly treat in, and around, my face, and let me tell you – this month’s baby was a good’n.
As an avid spice-repeller, the spicy peas are coated with ~ just ~ the right amount of flavour. The punchy peas are joined in the pod by half popped corn kernels alongside jumbo salted corn – making this snack he ultimate salty paradise. Take your taste buds to another planet while brightening up your duller-than-dishwater lunch break.
This handy multipack darling has a healthy star Graze rating and claims to consist of energy-busting copper and manganese-boosting fruits and nuts. This pack has a handful of walnuts embedded amongst gigantic sour cherries and succulent dried pears. My mouth is just dripping thinking about it.
A new addition to the Graze family welcomed with warm arms – the Beetroot crunch. My pack contains seven sweet beetroot crisps, surrounded by moreisjalapeño chickpeas and a collection of sunflower seeds. Containing 4g of protein and being an excellent source of achieving a mineral-booster shot – this new snack is ticking all my boxes.
Thin slices of cranberry and hazelnut toasts dipped in rich, dark, gooey cocoa dip… Is this what the Greek Gods considered to be ambrosia and nectar? A brilliant source of fibre and only 150 calories per pack (for the counters among you); if you are looking for something to mix up your weekly Kit-Kat, Snickers and Whisper ritual, this honey is your winning ticket.
I love Graze. It is my once-per-month sneaky treat and to be honest, I am itching for August’s box already. Be warned – this subscription service is HIGHLY addictive. You will fall head-over-heels in love.
