What’s In It:
raisins, cinnamon and honey almonds and apple
This snack was in my January Graze Box.
When I’m eating a “crumble” … I can think of no tea I’d rather have in front of me than a black tea … perhaps a warmly spiced chai? So I chose to brew this Bourbon Chai from Vintage TeaWorks. It’s honeyed sweetness melded wonderfully with the sweet flavors of this mix, and the spices accentuated the warm cinnamon notes of the almond. This tea turned this snack into a dessert!
What I Think:
This is pretty good, but perhaps I’m a little spoiled on some of the previous fruit snacks that I’ve had from Graze previously, because I found myself wanting the flavor infused raisins that I’ve tried before.
The almonds are definitely my favorite part of this snack. They are “candied” with honey and cinnamon, and that candied coating is absolutely scrumptious!
The apples and raisins are sweet. The raisins are nice and plump golden raisins. The apples are dried and chewy, and have a delicious, juicy taste to them.
My favorite way to enjoy this snack is to grab either a raisin or a piece of apple and eat it with an almond so that I get fruity goodness along with that delicious candied almond. I wish there were more almonds to this!
My Final Thoughts:
I enjoyed this snack (especially with the chai that I brewed to go with), but I found myself wanting something a little more. The candied almonds were delightful, but, everything else – while tasty – missed some of that excitement that I have experienced with the other snacks from Graze. I didn’t “trash” this product, but, I didn’t like or love it either, I’ll keep it at a “try” status.
