Sorry to post a food post but as someone who over-snacks, I thought I should share this! Graze Box is basically a snack subscription service; for £3.79 a box, you get four snacks through your post box every week. I went for this because my idea of a snack is 'eat all the things!' and this sounded a wee bit healthier.
The boxes fit through your letterbox (apparently a lot of people get them sent to thier office) and they're made of cardboard so they're easy to recycle. I also got a welcome leaflet, a napkin and nutritional information on my specific snacks. Good stuff.
There's a huge range to choose from! They're all on the 'healthier' end of the scale, nuts, seeds, dried fruits,etc, but there are also breads, flapjacks and so on as well. When you sign up, you can bin foods you don't like - I chucked olives because I hate them - and they'll never get sent to you, and you can select ones you love, and ones to send soon! You do get a random selection across the snacks if you don't choose, so the ratings system is a really good idea. If you're a health nut, there's a nutrition plan to get you the healthiest things, and there's symbols on the site to indicate things like 1 of your 5 a day. Most snacks I've had seem to be around 200 calories, so they don't dent your intake too much! (I'm not a calorie counter at all, but it's good to know.)
My first box I got sent spicy korean rice crackers (delicious!), oat and seed flapjacks (Like my mum used to make! Lots of fruit) vanilla flavoured seeds (like sweet popcorn almost!) and a dried fruit mix with apricots, goji berries and cherries. When you get your box, you get an email asking you to rate the snacks you got so if you don't like them you won't get sent them again - I didn't like the Mexican dip thing I got sent, so I just binned it and I'll never get it again!
See the little apple symbol? One portion of fruit, mofos!
Sure, the snacks aren't enormous, but they're way more satisyfying than a bag of crisps or a chocolate bar and definitely great for elevensies or to beat that 3.00am 'omg I need a Crunchie' feeling - especially the flapjacks! The quality is great, it's cheap and a much better option that buying a huge-ass bag of nuts or dried fruit you'll be sick of in two days! The Lemon Meringue and the Fig Roll mixes are AMAZING. Om nom nom.
Yummy Fig Roll mix.
If you want to try this, use the code 9B8Y8VXD to get a free box, and I get £1 to give to charity. Nice!
Back to regular makeup posting tomorrow!
