My box which should turn up tomorrow contains the following..
Mango peices with red pepper and chilli jam
Honey almonds, apple peices and sultanas
Almonds, pecan and brazil nuts
I only signed up just over a week ago, but I absolutely love this site! After cutting all chocolate and crisp and making this my treat for the week, I enjoy it all the more!

I got a free box after a two month hiatus, still going to cancel. It's too pricey and I also feel that the snacks are on the more indulgent rather than healthy side.
Still doing this, they've recently started adding lots more good stuff including microwave popcorn (which is probably the best I've tried).
Yeah they started sending me popcorn every week shortly before I cancelled it.
I don't own a microwave anyway.
My wife got gifted 10 boxes. Somewhere along the line she must have entered her card details as they just kept coming until I queried that 10 weeks seemed to be going on forever...
They are nice though, considering going to fortnightly.

I loved this for a while, but eventually I came to the conclusion it was doing me more harm than good, The snacks were too small to fulfil the promise of being something I could "graze" on all day, and so instead I found myself noshing them all in one go as a snack, and then still needing other snacks like fruit or whatever at other points in day.
I've found it's healthier and cheaper just to buy a big bag of seeds or whatever. The idea is great and some of the stuff is lovely, but it does end up being costly and I'm not convinced of the health benefits either.

snack does not equal nuts and fruits
snack equals chocolate, biscuits or crisps
I dropped down to 2 boxes a week when I went on maternity leave. It's a nice varied treat, usually spread it over 2 days but then I am still paying £2.99 per box so it's not so bad. Was a godsend when I worked full-time, Graze box + banana = breakfast and lunch covered.
I think the only health benefits are that they're not chocolate, biscuits or crisps. During the day I'm happy to much on fruit etc. It's post-work, before dinner that I found them great for. As a snack to tide you over, they were perfect.
They have different levels. The standard "nibble box" isn't particularly healthy, but they also have "eatwell box", "boost box" and "light box" which vary what you get sent (with light box being mostly rabbit food). The health aspect is irrelvant to me though, I eat these to stop me eating bigger meals / crisps etc.
Unrelated to that, they're also doing breakfasts on a trial period, and have recently introduced puddings.
Oh, and I really, really enjoyed their fake brownie. If you're on a plan with them see if you can get it in your send soon list.
I've just had the salt and vinegar nuts (almonds & peanuts). New fave I think, although the accompanying black forest cake was also lush.
My free box code is 28MDTQ8D if anyone wants a trial.
