I don’t know about you, but I enjoy snacking; I usually eat something every two hours, so when I saw this ‘Snack Service’ called Graze on Pinterest, I had to give it a go.
You start by going to their website and creating a profile, this is where you enter any allergies or food preferences you have. It then takes you to a long list of all the snacks they provide and you read through them and determine if it is something you’d love, like or rather not see in your shipment.
I had a code to get my first one for free, and it is a sample size (Use the code at the bottom of the post for a free sample box); the sample consists of 4 snacks based off of your preference list. After your first free sample, you are charged $11.00 on a weekly basis to continue receiving these snacks. (You can opt out of the service at any time).
I never received a notification that my sample had shipped or when it would arrive which was ok as it was free, but if it is something I pay for weekly, I’d like to know where my shipment is.
The packaging is quite cute; it comes personalized with your name on it and then each little snack is neatly placed and labeled very cutely. (See image below)
Here is my review on the 4 snack samples I received:
Deconstructed Carrot Cake: This was delicious; it cam with nuts, soft carrot pieces, a cinnamon flavoring and little vanilla fudge pieces. The fudge pieces were my least favorite as they are too sweet for my liking. 8/10
Stars and Stripes: This is a snack I’ve tried before, but in shape form. They take fruit strips and cut them into star and stripe shapes; I love fruit strips so this was great for me, it also had raisins. 9/10
Kettle Corn Kern Pops: These were good as well, confusing looking, but good. These Corn Kernels were partially popped, so they were easier to chew but I’ve never eaten a corn kernel so that was new. They weren’t overly sweet, which was nice for me and they even had a light salty flavor. 8/10
Brooklyn Bites: Out of all the options, this was the most bland. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. It had pretzels, cashews, sesame seeds with a slight chipotle flavor. Overall it was a bit dry for me. 6/10
I knew I just wanted to try this out once for blogging purposes so I registered with a Visa Gift Card, so when they would go to take the money for the next shipment, it wouldn’t go through. (Sneaky, I know)
BUT, they were sneaky too!!
The same day I got my first shipment I received an email saying that they tried to charge my card and it didn’t work etc. HOW can anyone have time to cancel if they don’t want it anymore when,
- I didn’t know when it shipped or would arrive, so I couldn’t cancel it as I didn’t want to not get the sample.
- They charge you before you even get through the first samples, so what if I don’t want to receive anymore? Too late, you’ve already bought your next week.
- What if I did want to continue? I hadn’t even updated my profile to say ‘Hey, don’t send me anymore Brooklyn Bites’, so I may be paying for stuff I already know I don’t like.
Long story short, this is a cute service if you’re looking to spice up your snack selection a bit. The regular size is 8 samples, so for $11.00 it’s really not bad as you’re getting a snack a day but it’s about $1.37 per handful.
Until we pin again,
