Weight Loss Wednesday – 16th April 2014 – Graze Edition

Hey Guys,

Today I want to talk about a company called Graze. Most of you may have heard about Graze already, I know I first used them all the way back in 2009, 5 years ago (god I feel old ), but I started using them again 2 weeks ago.

First who are Graze?

Graze are a company that sell small, letter box size, healthy snacks that you are meant to “graze” on at home, or at your desk at work.

What do you get?

In each letter size box you get 4 punnets of healthy snacks. Back in 2009 I used to get 3, but since I started using them again this year I have always had 4 so far.

Is it Value for money?

For most “normal” people yes, it would be, but…

For me, no, not at all. Each box is £3.89 including delivery. Considering my weekly electric bill is around £1-£1.50 a week (click here), a weekly Graze box is more than double my electricity bill!

With this in mind I was going to cancel after this blog, but after I logged into my account I have noticed my account says “special £2.99 price point (normally £3.89)”. Not sure how I have got this offer, maybe it has something to-do with having an account sine 2009, since I am getting this discount I have decided to carry on with Graze just for a few more months.

Here are the two boxes I have had so far (3rd April & 10th April), first off the box for the 3rd

3rd April

In this box I was sent Fruit & Seed Flapjack, Herby Bread Basket, Pear Tatin and Toffee Apple. It might sound strange, but my favourite was the Herby Bread Basket, followed by the Fruit & Seed Flapjack. My least favourite was the Pear Tatin.

Next box, the 10th was a little disappointing. In this box I was sent Marvellous Macaroon, Lightly Salted Popcorn, My Thai and Mixed Olives with rosemary & lemon.

My favourite was the amazing My Thai, it was so so nice, but for some reason I was sent a pack of Lightly Salted Popcorn that needed to be cooked! When I first used Graze back in 2009 we NEVER needed to cook anything and I have to admit, this came as a surprise, as I do not use or have a microwave they have ended up in the bin. Such a disappointment as I hate wasting food.

Anyway, that is what I got in the first two boxes and I will update you next week on what comes in that box.
