Graze box #1 - review

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!
