Snack Life

Today I'm here to talk about snacks again. Do you like snacks? I like snacks!

EarlyBird TasteBox*
In this week's box: 
  • Beatnuts and Berries | Flame raisin, peanuts, sunflower seeds, cranberries, hazelnuts & almonds
  • Brownie Crumbles | A brownie crumble biscuits with a rich cocoa taste
  • Chili Lime Shot | Jalapeno chilli and kaffir lime pumpkin seeds
  • Essential Nutty Mix | Peanuts, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, cashews, almonds and walnuts
  • Nuts About Ella | Sultanas with cacao, chocolate and hazelnuts
  • Darjeeling Earl Grey Tea
  • Lime & Mint Tea

The brownie crumbles didn't make it as far as being photographed. The box arrived at about 11am last Wednesday. I'd just made a cup of tea. I was a bit peckish. Eating them immediately seemed like the right thing to do. Little bites of crumbly biscuits that taste like a rich chocolate brownie. Perfect.

As for everything else, Nuts About Ella was my favourite. The combination tasted even better than a fruit & nut chocolate bar and I'm pretty fond of those. I was also pleasantly surprised by the chilli & lime pumpkin seeds; I'm not really a fan of spicy things but these weren't too overpowering. I would have liked to see a little more variety, there were a lot of nuts, but they kept me away from the ever-tempting biscuit tin. I'm hoping they'll be expanding their range a little more soon, especially because their competitors now have such extensive menus.

If you'd like to try a free box, pop the following code in at the EarlyBird checkout: bebop-5224

What do you think about this box?

  1. The crumbs of the Brownie Crumbles made me giggle - I'd be exactly the same! I'm such a huge snacker, this is a really clever idea.

    1. The Graze range is so huge now, I had a little look the other day and was so surprised by how many snacks they have to choose from now! xx

  7. I signed up and got the exact same as this. Most of it wasn't my thing but it was a free trial. And my mum managed to polish the rest of it off, and she pronounced the tea 'very good'. Which if you know my mum is high praise indeed, she has exacting tea standards! :')
    I'm too scared to order another though as I am a (lifelong) vegetarian and wouldn't know what to do with the beef jerky they sent me. Hopefully they'll have a way of vegetarians opting out soon.

  9. Snacks delivered to your door - that sounds dangerous! The thing that usually saves me from snacking is that I'm too lazy to go out and buy them! That being said - brilliant idea!

  14. Oh man, chili lime shot sounds soooo good. I was thinking of a subscription to a Graze box, but this looks equally as cool and delicious!
