Review: Graze

 

Graze is a snack company providing 4 perfectly portioned size snacks in each box to their subscribers. When you sign up, you can view all of their snacks and rate them.

 I'm going to share with you the ones that I got in my first box!

Up first is the 'Scrumptious Blueberry Swirl'. I'm not a fan of yogurt raisins but I think with the cranberries, blueberries and blackcurrants all together just made some good happen in this lil box!

Next, was the 'Brownie Flapjack'! Oh. My. Word. Delicious!! It was delightful with the oats and brownie pieces together! I ate them slowly because I knew once these 3 lil guys were gone, that I wouldn't see them for a while! :) Regular granola bars simply don't compare imo. These were soft and quite yummy! My favorite from this box indeed! I put this one as 'LOVE' when rated.


 

The third snack in my box was the 'Salted Fudge & Peanut Cookie'. This one I liked the least out of the box. I didn't like the chocolate cookies and fudge. I thought I would've liked those but I really didn't care too much for them. Now, the peanuts I thought were good.

 Last and final snack in the box was the 'Texas Corn Salsa'. I really enjoyed this pack! I loved all the corn goodies and the salsa almonds. Definitely in my top 2 for this box! I rated this of course, as 'LOVE'.


I love my snacks and healthy ones for that...what can I say?! :) A great thing about Graze is that they DO have a referral program! When you refer someone, you get $1 off your next box!

 You can get your 1st 5th delicious, Graze wholesome snack boxes for free!! If you want to cancel after the 1st free box, you can do that if you desire. Use my link to get your nom nom on! .

Review: Treatsie subscription box


  So, I decided to give Treatsie a try! It's a monthly artisan sweets subscription box service. They have a card that comes in every box telling you about the goodies in it. I love that they let you know the value of every item in the box. The Cost of Treatsie is $15 a month plus $4.95 shipping. There was a code that I used to get my FIRST box free, and you can too! Just pay for the shipping! Use coupon code FREEBOX22.



 The items in the box were by: Olive & Sinclair, The Salty Road, and Brittle Brothers. This box value is: $26. The salt water taffy by 'The Salty Road' was pretty good! I received mine in the 'Bergamot' flavor. When I looked up the word, 'Bergamot', I discovered that it came from Bergamot oranges! It's has a light taste to it. You can't really taste the orange. It was good though! I devoured the box within a couple of days.

 The Cashew Brittle was delicious! I loved it! It was so good. It came in a small package so I saved some of this day by day to savor it.

 However, I was looking forward to trying both of the chocolate bars but come to find out, they were terrible! ;( The first one I tried was the Buttermilk White Chocolate. I didn't care for this at all. I thought ok....let's give their other bar a try. It's the Sea Salt Dark Chocolate. Now, I thought this is going to be soooo good! NOOOOoooo, it wasn't. :( Worst. Chocolate. Ever. I have NEVER spit out chocolate in my entire life but with this, yes, I did! It's way too salty. The salt overpowered any sweetness that the chocolate had.

 Overall, I enjoyed 50% of this box. Wish I could've said it was ALL delicious but I can't say that. This is my honest opinion review of the June Treatsie box.

Review: Nibblr


   I love trying new snacks! I got my first box from Nibblr.com for free. You can also when you head to http://bit.ly/1kJzzMC and enter code: FBFIRSTBOX. Their boxes are $5.99 and they can deliver weekly, bi-weekly or once a month. Their boxes are pretty cute!

  When you sign up, you can view all of their snacks and rate them. Now, when I rated them, for the ones that I thought I would love, I rated 'Love It'! However, I didn't get any of the boxes that I marked as, 'Love It'. So, if you do sign up....just a warning that you may not get those items. Also, if you rate, 'No Thanks'....they won't send that snack to you and that's a good thing. 

 The snacks that I received are: 'Coco's First Date', 'Salt and Pepper Cashews', 'Caramel Apple' and 'Berry's Hat Trick'. They're portioned sized just right. It even has the Nutrition Facts on the back of each pack which I think is handy!


  • Cocoa's First Date has Dates, Almonds, and toasted Coconut~ I didn't really like the Coconut too much in with this mix.
  • Salt and Pepper Cashews~I enjoyed these! You can't go wrong with Salt & Pepper Cashews unless they are stale. :) Lots of pepper with this, couldn't taste the salt much.
  • Caramel Apple: Caramel, Peanuts and Apples~ This was pretty good. Love the peanuts!
  • Berry's Hat Trick: Pomegranate infused cranberries, blueberry pomegranate fruit pieces, and dried strawberries~ Loved the dried strawberries! They were delicious and I wish there were more of them! :)
 There are some good points like I mentioned but there is one not so good point. They don't have a referral program at this time and that would keep me from subscribing with Nibblr. I would like to be able to refer people and get points or $ off my boxes.

  Inside the box was this cute welcome limited edition print by: Dana Tanamachi that reads, "Life's Too Short To Be Hangry". Hangry: adj: irrational anger due to hunger. They have a lil example posted on their front page! :)

Life Application Study Bible Devotional 'Daily Wisdom from the Life of JESUS review

  I've had my NIV Life Application Study Bible for 15 yrs now and I love it! They recently came out with the 'Life Application Study Bible Devotional' and it's so nice to have this devotional to go with the Bible that I use. There are 250 key events in the life of Jesus and they're found in the Gospels. The 250 events were organized into 52 larger sections to create this devotional. It will take you a year to go through all of the events in Jesus's life, meditating on each one. Each day has four sections that gear you towards responding to God's Word. 



  • Reading the Word
  • Setting the Scene
  • Getting Personal
  • Talking to God
  If you want a devotional that has more of a study to it, I recommend this one because it has life application for what is being taught. Putting God's Word into action will equip you to be the person He wants you to be and you'll be growing closer to the Lord Jesus.
