I may be a little slow with the existence of the subscription boxes in the UK, but I’m giving them a go, all the same. Graze boxes first started arriving in my mailbox last Spring and apart from a short break (finances were more important to acquire my new car), I have continued weekly since my first box. There have only been two occasions when my boxes didn’t arrive on my designated but both times they were delivered on the folowing day.
Apart from the health factor, what I like most is being introduced to foods I hadn’t tried before. I am not a big fan of fruit but with these I can try them in small portions and quite often find that I do like them. The same can be said of the savoury ingredients. Buying a whole bag of Wasabi peas in Holland and Barratt can be daunting if you’ve never eaten them before (and also a waste of money) but the small portions with Graze act as an excellent introduction.
If there are any foods you don’t like, you can simply choose not to have them sent. Likewise, if there is something you’d really like soon, can can select for them to be sent in the next delivery or two. For me, this is a fortnightly action for Cheddar Gorge! All boxes are sent with four small containers of food, a napkin and a leaflet with a brief introduction. Apart from the address label and outer film, all can be placed in your recycling bins too.
If you want to try a Graze box for free, go to www.graze.com and enter the code R95Q2D7d on the website. You will need to enter payment details but this is so they can charge you for future boxes. Please note though there is no pressure to start a subscription; if you don’t like what you get with your free box, you can stop it. You can also cancel your subscription or change your delivery date at any time. Also, none of your personal/card details are passed on to me.
So, what does it all look like?
