Graze Box Subscription

Recently I subscribed to a snack delivery service: Grazebox. I've heard a lot about Grazebox over the year and had yet to give it a try. A friend of mine shared a promo code to receive your first box for free ... so I signed on up.  My first box was free and any boxes following that are a flat $6 (which includes shipping).

What I liked most about the subscription was it provided two options - a calorie counter box and a 'regular' box. Since I follow Weight Watchers I opted to go with the Calorie Counter box because I felt it would be the "healthier" of the two boxes.
With Grazebox you can go in and rate snacks based on whether you think you would enjoy them. There is no choosing exactly what snack you'll get but if you rate some more favorable than others, you'll more than likely receive a box that will suit your taste. I admit - I wasn't aware of this when I initially signed up. I also wasn't aware that there is a delivery option which you can choose how frequently you'd like to receive a box. Initially I pushed the date back twice -- which only pushed the receipt of my first back to that date.  After emailing customer service I was advised and changed the date to a date I'd like to receive my Calorie Counter Grazebox.
In my first box I received:
* Mississippi BBQ Pistachios - Smoked BBQ pistachios
* Hot Cross Yum - Orange raisins, sponge pieces & cinnamon honey almonds
* My Thai - Sweet Chili Sauce with Baked Soy Bites
* Garden of England - Mini strawberries, apple and blackcurrants
My thoughts? The best out of this box were the Mississippi BBQ pistachios and the hot cross buns. The pistachios were a nice smoky BBQ flavor and the hot cross buns were just delicious -  tangy but sweet.  I was not a fan of the My Thai .. I just couldn't handle the crunchy little soy crisps and the thai sauce. Whereas the Garden of England just wasn't my style of snack - so I passed it on to someone who would enjoy.
Overall it wasn't bad for the first box and first try at something new. Plus the snacks are portion sized and come with a little nutrition fact sheet for each snack - so you can track your calories/points plus values appropriately.
