Back to Grazin

Back in March, I wrote about my first graze box, and I'm happy to say I have my second box to share!
My Graze Box
Graze normally sends out boxes once a month, but I pushed this one back an extra month just to be sure it wouldn't arrive during Passover. After all, I knew I'd want to eat it all immediately, and just wanted to make sure I would be able to eat any bread products without waiting a week. Although I stand by my decision, I couldn't wait for those two months to go by and my snacks to arrive at the door.
Scrumptious Blueberry Swirl
One of the first snacks I tried was the Scrumptious Blueberry Swirl which included blueberry yoghurt raisins, raspberry infused cranberries and black currants. Unfortunately the yoghurt got a bit melted in transit, which you can tell because it wasn't pristine white. But it wasn't completely melted and didn't really change the taste.

Overall I did like this box, although not nearly as much as some of my favorites from the last shipment.
Cracking Black Pepper Cashews
The next box was Cracking Black Pepper Cashews with black pepper cashews, roasted unsalted cashews and redskin peanuts.

This box was really only ok. I wasn't a huge fan of the black pepper cashews and the rest were normal nuts you could find anywhere else.
Fruit Mango Chutney
Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of the Fruity Mango Chutney which included fruity mango chutney with black pepper dippers. I actually didn't even finish the chutney because I disliked it so much, and while the dippers were fine by themselves they definitely needed something else with them.

But ending on a good note, I was a big fan of the Fruit and Seed Flapjack which was a rustic rolled oat flapjack with mixed seeds and dried fruits.

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about these, but they actually wound up being my favorite of the box. Although compared to all 8 snacks I've received from Graze they would probably still only be my 4th favorite.

Overall I wasn't a huge fan of this months selection, and if this had been my first box likely wouldn't have continued. But after starting with such a positive experience I'm willing to give it another shot, and this time I'm only waiting a month in between boxes!

Which of these snacks looks like one you'd most enjoy?

Also, if you want to try graze you can sign up here to get your 1st and 5th box free! This post is not sponsored by Graze, however if you sign up using my referral link I'll receive $1 off my next box. All opinions expressed are my own.
