Graze: breakfast


How exciting, Graze have created a new range of cereals. Previously, there were a handful of porridges to choose from – these five have now been joined by a host of granolas, 15 in total. As soon as I saw them on the website, I knew I had to order a box and with £3.79 sitting in my account, I got this for 20p! I’m already considering buying another.
I immediately removed all the varieties I knew I wouldn't like – so that was goodbye peach, chocolate orange – in fact, anything containing orange – and while I was happy to try everything else, I chose five to request with ‘send soon’.
Breakfast doesn’t get any better than this, believe me. In my box, I received:
  • Summer Fayre (blueberry granola, apple, strawberry pieces, crispy rice flakes & rye flakes)
  • Rocky Road Granola (chocolate granola, dark chocolate curls, cherries, pistachios & pumpkin seeds)
  • Strawberries & Cream (oat & barley granola, strawberry & raspberry pieces, yoghurt coated strawberry pieces, crispy multigrain flakes & malt coated oats)
  • Ski Lodge Spiced Apple (apple, cinnamon & ginger-spiced granola, chopped pecans, honey almond slivers, jumbo raisins & crispy millet flakes)
Firstly, how cute is the box – just like the kids’ boxes, these ones have been personalised and it definitely put a smile on my face; I soon forgot my Monday blues.
I’ve only tried the Summer Fayre and Rocky Road sachets so far but I am most looking forward to the Ski Lodge Spiced apple granola – I love the combination of cinnamon and apple. I don’t think this is a bad box actually and I already know the strawberries & cream variety will be a winner. With a packed summer of sport coming up, I know I’ll be eating plenty of strawberries and cream – it epitomises the British summer.
Summer Fayre
This was summer in a bowl. The blueberry granola was lush – not too sweet and had the perfect crunch. I loved all the additional dried fruit pieces. There’s nothing bad I could say about this cereal at all and if I were to choose another box, I’d definitely pick this.
Rocky Road
With the chocolate granola and curls, combined with cherry, I couldn’t help but think this was more reminiscent of black forest gateau, than it was of rocky road. The pistachios and pumpkin seeds added bite to this cereal. The only thing I wasn’t keen on was the whole cherries, which soon went hard in the cold milk and were difficult to eat.
Fancy trying Graze granola (or porridge) for yourself? New and existing customers can benefit by visiting the website and using my friend code which is LUCYW7Y5. New customers can get their first, fifth and tenth box free – there’s no obligation to buy after your free box and you can cancel at any time (not that you’d want to – my addiction lasts two-and-a-half years). Existing customers: receive an additional box free when you buy one.
Will you be having breakfast Graze style?
