Graze | 14.04.14


In this box, I got:
  • The Graze brownie
  • Smoky gazpacho dip
  • Bounty hunter
  • Shangri-La
I’m going to have to start by talking about The Graze Brownie – it is SO good! I remember waiting so long to receive it in my first box, I never thought I was going to be able to sample it and I’m definitely going to have to start selecting ‘send soon’ so I get it more regularly. At only 129 calories, it doesn’t taste like it should be guilt-free and honestly, you wouldn’t know any different. There’s even beetroot in the Graze Brownie, but you couldn’t tell – apparently it helps bring out the chocolaty goodness. Like the flapjacks, this comes in pre-cut pieces – but there is no way I would share this!
The Smoky Gazpacho Dip was a new snack I requested as I wanted to try it. It has since been discontinued – and I couldn’t make my mind up about it either. It didn’t taste too much like barbecue and was more like a mix of onion and tomato, with a sweet vinegary taste.
The final two snacks were ones I’d had before and rated with a LIKE – Bounty Hunter and Shangri-La (since renamed Rainbow Vitality... I prefer the former!). Bounty Hunter is a combo of cranberries, coconut and chocolate drops and is quite high in calories (due to the foods it contains). It isn’t too sweet and the flavours all work well – even better when used in baking! Although this contains chocolate, it’s guilt-free snacking.
Shangri-La is a mix of lingonberries, pineapple, almond slices and pumpkin seeds. As well as a good source of vitamin E, it’s also only 132 calories and so, is awarded the Graze light badge. I ate this for breakfast with some natural yogurt and really liked it. The nuts and seeds were crunchy, while the dried fruits were soft with natural sweetness. It all went really well with the yogurt too!
