Couch potato season is here
So what do we all do while watching our entertainment? We snack, otherwise known as ‘Grazing’. Some of us are trying to watch what we eat, be eat an allergy, a dietary must (like Diabetes) or just dietary lifestyle, and then there’s those who just don’t know portion control. We watch a movie with a big bucket of popcorn; and at the theater without the butter on it, it may be the only healthy option. Watch the Superbowl in parties (or just sit & veg out making it an ‘off day’ and just pig out)
I thought to share my find! Why did I title this Snacking Entertainment? Because the flavors entertained my taste buds while I watched something on tv.
A short time ago, I saw an ad in a magazine or something for the Graze Box from Graze.com. I don’t recall if there was a free code offer in that ad, but I probably just thought it sounded too good to be true so I didn’t get it, so it went in the garbage besides I currently don’t have the income, to receive every week or month.
Maybe a few months later, I ordered a book from Barnes and Nobles and paid for it upon ordering. When I went to pick it up they opened the box it came in, in front of me. Among the papers was something for Graze.com, this time a free code; so I told the girl I’d take that and she could get rid of the rest of the papers.
I left it on my desk for a bit to think about it, and then I decided I’d go on and sign up to see what kind of goodies they had.
The Graze box , is for those who are watching what they eat, eating healthy, etc. and is sort of like a sampler (or so as i see it).
If you check out their website , you will find they have a few different variations of their ‘Graze’ box. There are a few variations of the 4 pack of Graze boxes Savory, Sweet treat, 4 snack variety, Calorie count and Sugar count, there’s also an 8 snack variety and a ‘Sharing’ box. The sharing box is 5 bags of the snacks, great for a healthy alternative for a party. They’ve also added more since I originally started this post.
When I signed up they had a way to note your dietary preferences, Spicy Food, unsuitable for vegans, contains nuts, gluten or milk but I will note all their snacks are currently Vegetarian friendly! There are plenty of SWEET healthy choices as well as other choices, for whatever your tastes may be! I looked through the snacks and what ones I knew I wouldn’t like i checked off to ‘Trash’ like the spicy stuff.
They have ‘buttons’ under the snack options, Try (default), Like, Love & Trash. So what was in my Graze box? If you take a look to your right you will see. Oat,spelt (WTF is Spelt?) & raisin cookie with berry compote was Delicious! i wish I had more of the cookies! The compote was sweet yet a tiny bit tart I think but I like it that way and oh the flavor of it! I’m not a fan of the dark raisins, i very much prefer the ‘white grape’ ones. however regardless of either I don’t care for my ‘berries’ to be cooked. This was good!.
So in the Brooklyn bites you can see there are Poppyseed pretzels, Cheesey cahews & Roasted Pumpkin seeds (so I’m saving that for last cause mine went up in smoke literally as our toaster oven was on it’s last leg and just decided to die on me.
The Herby Bread Basket Is basil baguettes, Garlic Crostini and Oregano Rice Crackers. I’m not really one for stuff like this if it’s not fresh. But this was pretty good, my only complaint is the Garlic Crostini didn’t even taste like garlic (not in the slightest, it tasted plain to me. So I need to send them a note that those have to be improved on.
