Grazing away

Graze. Good or frivolous? I just can’t make up my mind. For those of you not in the know, Graze is a company which delivers snack boxes to your door. For £3.89 you get a box like the one pictured above (postage included).

In terms of how expensive health snacks are at the supermarket, it’s actually a good deal. And when you add the variety and ease of the Graze box it all looks like a fantastic idea.

Some of my favorite snacks so far have been the Florentine (pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and dark chocolate), the bonnie wee oatcakes with onion jam and the Strawberry Milkshake (dried banana, dried strawberry and white chocolate) —- and yes I realise that I like the ones with chocolate…

My issue is that Graze has hundreds of different snack options, and you are not allowed to pick what you get. By logging in to their website, you can rank each of the snacks with Try, Bin, Like or Love. But when you Bin all the things you don’t fancy, you get a message telling you off!

After all, my reason for wanting a Graze box was to throw something in my handbag as I was running late to work. But not all the snacks are what I want as a snack for work – therefore what is the point?
