What's is in My Graze Box #1

Hello my glamorous friends and happy fourth of july ! If your not from the US like myself hope you are having a lovely chilled out day or evening . For a while now ive signed up for graze because of the healthy snacks and main reason .... the OILVES  ( i love them ) . These snacks are good if you are on the good or if you just would like to lead a healthy lifestyle . So i thought it would be a good idea to share this weeks box with you and i inspier you to try it out too .


These where the snacks i got this week they look so yummy !!!

On monday i had the heart healthy nuts, these where alright i didn't have a all of it and i wouldn't get it again . in the packet i got a few almonds , pecans , brazil and peanut nuts . i did like the brazil and pecan nuts though they were  yummy ! i would give it a 3 out of 5





 During the week i had the chedder chesse oatbakes which came with a caramelised onion marmelade . Now i never thought i would have a onion marmelade ,but that is why i like graze because it gives you an opportunity to try new things ! And let me just say the marmelde was really really yummy epecially accompanied with the oakbake however , i did find the oatbake dry by its self so it be would wise to have it with the marmelade .i would give this a  4 out of 5




Now i fell in love with the fruit &seed flapjack the were super moist and buttery ( is that even a word .... buttery ) i liked some the dry fruits but , it had rasins in it and i don't like them . In a nutshell would give this a 4 out of 5


OLIVES !!!!!  These were so nice but the garlic did over power it too much (not going to lie could kill a vamipre with my breath ) and thank god it didn' t have  any olive stones because  if your an oilves lover would find those stones an incovenice . So i would give this a 4 .5 out of 5

What would you like in your graze box ?
