    Does anyone else get graze boxes delivered? I get one weekly and they are yum! Theyr about 100-200 cals per box which is fine if you space them out. 4 in a week isnt bad. Anyway i think they help my munching on terrible things. Like ive been known to sit n eat a WHOLE TUB of icecream as a snack. Awful.

    I love these! :D most of the punnets are really yummy (I loved the black pepper cashews). I also really liked how you can totally exclude certain foods/punnets. Really friendly company and when one box never arrived they sent a free one, no probs.

    I saw a get one free link somewhere today so signed up for it. It lets you choose what you don't want sending to you so I used My Fitness Pal to see which things I thought I did not want to waste my calories on (like the flapjacks and like I would never use 200 cals for some seeds!) and put that I didn't want them :) The nuts look yummy though. Would be good for days that I'm not using up my cals.

    i used to have these quite regularly but now just once in a while as I found punnets of seeds building up in my cupboard lol!

    Faves are the foccacias, the mixes,and the nuts (had cinnamon ones lately and they were lush!)

    Every box comes with a leaflet giving you the nutritional info for each food, including the calories. I love Beach Bum mix and the one with dried strawberries! There's tiny bits of choc in some of the fruit mixes, making them healthy but a tiny bit indulgent.

    I ordered Graze boxes (the dried fruit, not fresh) for about a year, but recently I've cancelled.

    1) They're expensive. It's better to go into a health food shop or supermarket and pick up five or six bigger bags of stuff, which would last you ten times longer at the same cost.

    2) I found they made my calories creep up. Some boxes are 250 calories, and there's really not a whole lot to them. Perhaps the fresh fruit boxes are better, as there's more to them?

    I understand there are two schools of thought regarding snacking/no snacking. I think it's down to what suits you. And personally, if I snack - even healthy snacking - it just blurs the lines between when I should and should not eat, making it harder for me to stay on track.

    I got my free box today too and got :

    Cheddar Focaccia - 120kcal
    vanilla cherry frangipane - 196kcal .. eek!
    dark rocky road - 176 kcals (has chocolate in so justified in kcals and a good treat)
    wasapea - 122 kcals.. like this because I can never buy a big back and just eat a few and this is great portion control for me.

    I do wish though that they put the nutritional information on their site so we can make the decision on what we want based on that.
