Graze Breakfast Variety Box

21 January 2015

I've just started getting Graze boxes again, and whilst on the website I noticed their breakfast boxes. Breakfast has been my new favourite thing since discovering my love for granola so I was keen to try these boxes out. 

You get four cereal portions in each box, and it works exactly like a normal graze box. It costs £3.99, you can choose how often you want to receive them and even give your preferences on the contents. I thought it was a really lovely touch to have my name on the box too!

In my first breakfast box, I recieved Strawberries & Cream, Toasted Quinoa Granola with Zested Orange, Chai Spiced Orange Porridge and Orange & Macademia Granola. Not the most varied in terms of flavours, with orange being the predominant here, but I was happy I'd get to try both the granola and the porridge. I also thought the cereals came in such lovely packaging. This is slightly different to the classic nibble boxes, but I thought it looked so bright and cheery!

Let's get onto the tasting shall we...

Strawberries & Cream

Oat & barley granola, strawberry & raspberry pieces, yoghurt coated strawberry pieces, crispy multigrain flakes & malt coated oats 

This is the one I was perhaps most excited to try. Its an oat and barley based granola, with dried strawberry and raspberry pieces and yogurt covered strawberry bits. First of all it reminded me of the flavour of Country Crisp! It also wasn't as crunchy as my current Waitrose granola which was a bit disappointing as I like the larger clusters. However I liked the contrast of the fruity flavours and the sweet, creaminess of the yoghurt bits. If you've ever had Fruit Flakes, they're similar to the yoghurt coated ones! Portion-wise there's more than enough for a bowl. Personally I have small portions, so I can stretch this sachet out to two breakfasts, making it even better value! I'm not 100% sure I'd get this granola again though. 

Toasted Quinoa Granola with Zested Orange

Quinoa, oat & barley granola, orange peel, orange-infused raisins & rye flakes

While I liked the texture of this one better than the strawberry one, with the toasted quinoa, I wasn't 100% sure about the orange flavour. I'm not a huge marmalade fan, and the flavour is very similar. The orange zest pieces were quite large so the flavour is quite intense! Annoyingly 3/4 of my cereals in the box were orange flavoured, so I didn't get much of a variety.

Spiced Orange Porridge

Orange flavoured raisins, orange peel, chai seeds and oats

Spiced Orange is one of my favourite Yankee Candle scents, and with porridge being the perfect antidote to a chilly winter morning, I couldn't wait to try this! Flavour-wise I was a bit disappointed, as I didn't think there was much going on! I think they could have intensified the chai flavour as I found it only had a hint. On the plus side, I was able to get 2 servings out of this one, which made it better value. I made this porridge with almond milk, which made it so creamy!

Orange & Macademia Granola

Orange-infused granola, orange peel, macadamia nuts & coconut flakes

After the other two orange cereals, I didn't expect to like this one much. However, this turned out to be my favourite, I clearly saved the best for last! I liked the chunkier style of granola, and the macademias added a great crush and something a little different to your average granola. I'm even getting used to the orangey-ness! I think out of all of these, this is the only cereal I'd pick to have again. 

Overall I wasn't in love with the selection I got in my breakfast box. I didn't think it was varied enough with the three orange cereals! Whilst I'm not sure this will be a long-term thing for me, there are a few cereals I do want to try, so I'm going to tick send soon for those in the hope I get a better box next time!
