Set up by 7 friends, Graze is a fairly new online company who deliver little punnets of healthy goodness and treats directly to your door or office for less than the price of a bottle of wine! Comprising choices of breads, crackers, dips & dippers, flapjacks, olives, natural teats, dried fruit, nut mixes and seeds – there is something for everybody with over 100 different natural products to tempt your snacky taste buds!

I know some will call me lazy for this – and clearly I am – but I was interested in this site for several reasons; a) I got given a code which entitled me to try two boxes of food for FREE b) I never know what little tasty treats to buy from the health food shops so I usually end up buying chocolate instead and c) when I do buy healthy treats, I usually forget about them till after their expiry date!! Lastly, I also love gimmicky new things – and so thought I’d give it a go – and I had my first FREE box delivered this morning. This is what I got:

HAZELNUT ESPRESSO – which contains coffee milk chocolate drops, hazelnuts, plums and amaretto drops. (Particularly yummy!)

THE HERB GARDEN: Oregano rice crackers, crispy peanuts & baked herb bites.

APPLE & CINNAMON FLAPJACK: 3 small rustic rolled oat flapjack segments

THE HANGING GARDENS OF BABYLON: punnet of apricots, dates & plums

I have been enjoyably snacking on these all day (you can specify which day you would like your order to be delivered too!). Each week they will send you 4 different punnets to try – based on your likes and dislikes (which you can inform them of) – all for £3.49 including postage! PLUS: with this code and link HERE (http://www.graze.com/p/TJTFYR1) you too can try TWO FREE boxes of Graze goodness like me!

After my 5th box I will decide whether to cancel or not – however, by the time I’ve bought some crisps, a cake and/or a huge bar of Cadbury’s as a side order to my lunchtime sandwich, I will have nearly spent what it costs to order one of these boxes – so I might continue to purchase and pack a healthier punnet a day into my lunchbox instead ;-)

Plus, like a schoolboy, I was very excited to receive this box through the post this morning – see, it CAN be Christmas everyday!! AND – more importantly, for everyone of you who signs up, I get the chance to donate a £1.00 to the Graze school of farming. This school teaches locals how to grow fruit trees in deprived rural Uganda. The project provides local students with tuition, tools and support to start their own orchards, invigorating poor rural areas by improving nutrition (the diet in these areas is generally very poor), increasing productivity from the land, empowering locals and providing a source of income.

Also, all packaging used comes from sustainable forests, is bio-degradable and 100% recyclable!

Everybody wins. Try it ;-)
