Been looking for ages and found an offer on savethestudfent.org for a free first box and half price 2nd box so I thought I'd give them a try.

Good idea or just a gimmick?

Whats the snacks like? Is this worth having long term?

(I thought they would be good to take to work)

Thanks peeps! x

I like them but they aren't very good value, so I have stopped my subscription. When they first came out, the boxes included fresh fruit such as grapes and orange, but they stopped doing it as there were loads of postal strikes in a row which meant all of the boxes arrived mouldy. I think it's better to go to Holland and Barrett and buy yoghurt coated stuff/ nuts/ wasabi peanuts from there, and then take them to work in a multi compartment Tupperware box. I guess you don't get the same surprise though!

I get big bags of yoghurt covered nuts, raisins and banana chips in Poundland. Actually a great selection of snacky stuff in there. I no longer get Graze boxes

I use them to send as little presents to people. You can order one-off boxes for friends which is way cheaper than sending flowers and people always seem to think it's a nice surprise.

I love graze boxes and getting it in the post every Friday. I couldn't possibly cancel though as my class like making stuff in the junk modelling out of my packaging!

Gwendoline, Nakd do flavoured raisins, my DCs like cola, cherry and lime but I think they might do orange ones too. Also those Go Ahead bars in different fruit flavours are a bit like garibaldi biscuit with different flavoured raisins inside.

You can get a free box at:

www.graze.com/uk/p/1F95RNP

Worth a try - if you dont like it you dont have to have it again (and you've had some freebies!) smile

I hated all the chocolate things.

Well I have a box a week delivered on a Monday to my office as I was spending almost £10 a week on crap from the work canteen/vending machines when I got the urge to snack at my desk (some of that spent on coffees too)

I like that they come with the nutritional values inside the box in a little booklet so I can work out how many WW points the whole box is/each individual punnet

Probably a gimmick but I see it as a cost saving for me personally at the moment, a lovely little treat to look forward to at boring o'clock 3pm and if I need to cut back I can cancel any time.

The honeycomb flapjack is delicious. I packed a few boxes in my hospital bag and ate them after having DD. I agree they are expensive but I have allowed myself to order them until dd is 6w for late night snacks/to keep in my bag and they are v convenient.

Where do I buy the flavoured/yoghurt covered dried fruit if i want a DIY version then?

Yummy, but seriously overpriced.

I had them for a month trial and went through the list of things you can choose from and removed all the things I thought I probably wouldn't like. I must have just left all the chocolatey things or something cause they emailed me to say that they wouldn't be able to send me any more boxes because the list of things left that I said I was willing to try wasn't balanced enough in their opinion!

MechanicalTheatre Mon 18-Feb-13 20:37:03

I like them but they're not worth £4. A lot of the stuff is shite as well.

The idea is nice.

catlady1 Mon 18-Feb-13 20:35:06

Most of the stuff is really nice, but not worth £4 unfortunately.

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Mon 18-Feb-13 20:33:56

No, scottishmummy. sad I've just cancelled mine. They seem to taste the same every week for some reason. My last box had a blackcurrent overload, 3/4 contained them and they were sickly sweet. They just get boring. The breads are nice but they rarely send them and I get lumbered with yet more dried fruit and bloody seeds. I did tell them not to do this. They also charge your account between 1-3 days before sending out the box, which is a PITA if you're on a tight budget.

I like them. I get one a week. It gets delivered to work and I stretch it out, stops me from spending a pound a time in the vending machine on pure sugar.

I liked the raisins that tasted orangey, have never seen those anywhere else. But even they weren't enough to keep me past the freebie period.

scottishmummy Mon 18-Feb-13 17:51:56

I make up my own wee pots,and take to work
Buy stuff from deli,it's cheaper
Are graze boxes as stuffed and plump as they look in the photos?

rainand Mon 18-Feb-13 17:44:49

I ordered them for a while - was useful for when at office. But I think I'd now finish them in a day, so useless.

scottishmummy Sat 16-Feb-13 21:34:18

Folk in my work buy them,IMO overpriced -can make self fraction of cost

Bedat10 Sat 16-Feb-13 21:29:02

I used to get them delivered to work and loved it when it was graze day! However I would tend to eat it alongside what I would normally eat, meaning I'd be eating spicy cashews totally unnecessarily at like 9.30am. It also made me graze more on the days i didnt even have a box! I lost weight when I stopped the boxes... They aren't that healthy...

DoYouMrJones Sat 16-Feb-13 21:27:38

I like them. Pretty much all my colleagues get one and I recently started. A few duds bu I think it's a nice treat.

The flapjacks do look yummy but they're so disappointing. You know on the picture the contents are so bountiful they're spilling out of the box? Its not like that sad

MrsBombastic Sat 16-Feb-13 21:25:14

I will try it for a month, if it's a rip off I will cancel it.

Thanks for the info/advice. x

MrsBombastic Sat 16-Feb-13 21:23:48

But the flapjacks look yummy especially the choc and honeycomb.. oh no, lol, hope they are ok.

I thought we got 6 options in our box but I just looked and there are 4, how disappointing. sad

Totally unrelated... but does anone else think the biscuit icon looks like a boob? grin
