I love it when the husband walks in with the mail and hands me my recycled cardboard box. I know I am about to embark on a journey of creative flavors, packaging, names, and everything else inside this little box.
January’s Graze box did not disappoint. I can’t believe how yummy everything was this time around. In the past I’ve had a few hits and misses, but this month I enjoyed all four treats!
This months box contained:
Hot Cross Yum. Hot Cross Yum contained what they called ‘sponge pieces.’ I am not sure what these are exactly, they were almost like a moist cake cookie. This also had orange infused raisins and honey almonds with cinnamon. This was a nice blend of cinnamon and sweet. I really enjoyed this because it was only 134 calories and provided me with at least 2 important vitamin and minerals.
Herby Bread Basket. Herby Bread Basket was amazeballs. I loved just the right amount of seasoning and crunch. Even though I know there were carbs lurking, this little treat had only 92 calories. It was worth every carb for these garlic crostini, mini basil breadsticks and oregano rice crackers. It was so pretty and fun to eat.
American Nut Mix. American Nut Mix was a mixture of redskin peanuts, pecans, brazil nuts (my fave) and almonds (my second fave which ties with pistachios.) These were plain and raw. I really enjoyed being able to snack on nuts that allowed me to enjoy their most natural taste. No salt, no season. I look forward to having this again.
White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake. In the past I have had some hit and miss with the dessert flavor snacks. I was afraid the White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake was going to be a miss because of the overload of cranberries. I was wrong. This tiny dessert tray contained raspberry infused cranberries, white chocolate buttons and hazelnuts. When taking a bit I made sure I had some of everything. It was pretty amazing how close it tasted like cheesecake. This one was also the source of at least two vitamins and minerals which made me feel good about eating it. The hazelnuts were wonderful and gave it a nice crunch.
One thing I really like about Graze, they have a school of farming.
What is the Graze school of farming?
Our school of farming teaches locals how to grow fruit trees in deprived rural Uganda. The project provides local students with tuition, tools and support to start their own orchards. The school invigorates poor rural areas by improving nutrition (the diet in these areas is generally very poor), increasing productivity from the land, empowering locals and providing a source of income. Every penny of your feed your friends donation is spent on the ground, it’s amazing how far the money goes and how many lives are touched by the donations.
If you are interested in getting your own Graze box subscription , I have some good news! I now have unlimited friend codes! Woohoooo!

I’m a bit addicted to Graze boxes – although I took mine down to every 2 weeks otherwise I get bored too quickly! Hot Cross Yum is one of my favourites, of the sweet ones.
PS I’m in your tribe for this week’s SITS challenge. I put an intro thread up at http://www.thesitsgirls.com/forums/index.php?p=/discussion/2409/ if you want to pop over and say hi to everyone in our group.
I love the Graze box. I just get one a month. I love the flapjacks. I told them if they sent me a whole box of flapjacks I would be in heaven!

We get the graze box here also. I even ordered a subscription for my daughter in college. She loves receiving mail in her dorm and this works perfectly. It’s a great thing they have going on.

I just love it. I certainly enjoy my little snack every month.
