Graze Snack Box Review: Tomato & Basil Pizza

It never ceases to amaze me how Graze come up with so many inspirational snacking ideas. Some are a bit hit and miss, but on the whole, they’re winners.

They've certainly been tasty enough to keep me as a loyal customer for the past 3 years (and I’m not even being paid to write up these reviews)!

So, onto this week’s snack - Tomato and Basil Pizza.

It’s not pizza in the traditional sense. Graze’s Tomato and Basil pizza snack is a punnet consisting of mini tomato breadsticks, basil flavoured crunchinis (like croutons) and cheese flavoured cashew nuts. The 24g punnet has 120 calories.

I have recently changed my Nibblebox to a Graze Lightbox, so now all my snacks will be under 150 calories. It may have narrowed down my choices a bit, but there are still many tempting and delicious offerings available.

I’m so pleased Tomato and Basil Pizza are included in the Lighbox range, as they’re quite possibly one of my favourite Graze snacks.

The teeny tomato flavoured breadsticks are dry, light and crunchy, complementing the basil flavoured crunchinis perfectly.

The crunchinis are very hard croutons, with a slight oily texture once you’ve crunched into them. They are made with extra virgin olive oil and olive pomace oil and when combined with the basil, are utterly delicious.

Cashew nuts aren’t that flavoursome on their own, so I tend not to snack on them. However, Graze have found a way of turning the ordinary cashew nut into a delicious and very moreish snack. The cheese isn’t overpowering like some cheesy snacks and the other ingredients, including garlic, paprika and onion, all combine to make them irresistible. I could have eaten tons of these, but thank goodness, it’s all portion controlled.
