In keeping with Jim’s search for healthy protein packed chocolate, I thought I would take another venture over to Graze. As well as doing a Chocolate Box, Graze also provides a Protein Box, which has twenty-nine snacks available to choose from. Out of these there is only one chocolate punnet, but I think it is well worth taking a look at.

Graze sends your snacks through the post, and you can choose the day that they arrive. I must admit that their date keeping isn’t wholly accurate as I have often had my box arrive a few days in advance – but hey, that’s a lot better than them arriving late. Usually the packaging is just a plain brown cardboard box, but occasionally they like to jazz things up with a bit of colour and creativity. It think it is a nice touch not knowing what kind of artwork – if any – will arrive on your doorstep.

The Cocoa & Vanilla Protein Flapjack contains 7.8g protein. Considering it weighs in at 54g that’s not a huge amount when comparing it to other protein claiming products. It is divided into three bite-size pieces, and has a mild, unobtrusive cocoa scent, which is captured in the taste, and combines with strong notes of vanilla. The flapjack is very low on sweetness, just falling short of having a savoury flavour. Because it is meant to healthy, it is not laden with sugar or butter, and so does not fulfil the anticipation of chewiness you would expect. Instead it’s crunchier like a cereal bar, and while fairly moist, does not provide the same kind of melt in the mouth satisfaction. For a healthy chocolate snack it fulfils the brief and taste nice – just not as nice as the naughty version.

If you are looking for a healthy protein snack then you can get a free box by using the code voucher N33HGLVNB. It can be used by multiple people, so get snacking.
