It was hard to be patient and to finish box #1 with out dipping into box #2. But, I wanted to eat them in order, and I stuck these containers in to the cupboard and let them wait.
First thing I tried was the Pear Tatin. The pears were soft and slightly chewy, and just perfect. The almond were simple and enjoyable. The yogurt covered sunflower seeds were ok, I didn't hate them but they also didn't do much for me. Lastly the raspberry infused cranberries were just ok, I would have liked plain cranberries much better. I set this one as "Like" because I did like it, but I didn't love it. It came in at 4 Weight Watchers points.
I than had the Wee Bonnie Oatbakes. I wanted to like these, I really did. The little oatbake crackers were really gritty to me, and I didn't like them at all on their own. As for the caramelized onion marmalade, it was way too oniony and over powering for me. I trashed this one. 3 WW points.
Next up I had the Walnut & Vanilla Truffle. It was delicious! The best was when I'd put a few different pieces together and eat them. The walnuts were perfect, and the vanilla pumpkin seeds were subtle but tasty. The raisins were soft and sweet. But the fudge pieces were the best! I set this one as "Love". 5 WW points.
Last was the Black Pepper Pistachios. I ended up eating these last because I thought they'd be nothing special. I was wrong. They were super tasty, and they black pepper really added a wonderful flavor to the nuts. When I was finished I was left wanting more! I set them as "Like", but I might en up changing it to "Love".
I have to admit, it's really hard not to sit down and eat all four containers that come in the Graze box. Really freakin' hard. But, I was able to restrain and I'm so glad I did!
My box was a little mangled from being the postal system for a few extra days, but all of the contents were just fine.
First thing I tried was the Salsa Fresca. The "sombreros" are thin little rice cakes with powdered cheese on them, but they just don't replace tortilla chips. I wasn't crazy about them. As for the salsa, it was a bit on the sweet side, and I wasn't real crazy about it. Over all it was just ok. I left it as a "Try". The one nice thing it that it only cost me 1 Weight Watchers point.
The Eleanor's Apple Crumble was an item I wasn't sure I would like. But as soon as I started eating it, I was in love! The Apples were chewy without being too chewy. The honey cinnamon coated almonds were sweet, crunchy, and delicious. And, even though I'm not much of a raisin lover, the raisins were plump and sweet, and very enjoyable. I marked this as a "Love", and can't wait to have this again! It came in at 3 WW points.
I was excited about the Chocolate Pretzels! But honestly, when it arrived the chocolate was gooey and kinda gross looking, and I kinda put off eat this one right away. That was a mistake on my part! The chocolate was gooey, but delicious! There was plenty of chocolate for the pretzels, and pretzels were nice and crunchy. I gave this one a "Like" and would be happy to get it again! Only 3 WW points.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Dark Rocky Road. I just knew I'd love this one, and I was so right! The contents were simple: Belgian chocolate buttons, pecans, and cranberries, all of my favorites in one place! I did end up breaking up the chocolate buttons to not gobble everything down quick, and to actually graze on it. It was a great treat for the end of the week. I set this snack as "Love". 5 WW points, and worth it if you have the points to spare.
Over all, I loved the contents of my first box, and can't wait to dive into my second!
