Trying New Cuisine Has Never Been Easier FOOD SUBSCRIPTION BOXES


Eating the same foods over and over gets old, but it’s often hard to be adventurous when you don’t want to waste money on unappetizing food. Enter the food subscription box. When you sign up for a food subscription box, you’ll have the opportunity to sample new foods without committing much money — or time at the grocery store — to the cause. Here are two tasty food subscription boxes that’ll make your mouth water.

If you like variety, exciting flavor combinations, and wholesome snacks approved by a nutritionist, you’ll love Graze. With this food box subscription, customers create a personalized snacking experience, something that many food subscription services don’t offer! Once you set your preferences, Graze handpicks eight snacks for your box. After you’ve tried your snacks, you can tell Graze how well they know your taste buds. Unfortunately, Graze is not suitable for people with allergies. Their snacks are packed in a facility that also processes nuts, wheat, milk, soy, and egg, and cross- contamination is a strong possibility.


Try the World believes that the most authentic way to discover a new culture from the comfort of your own home is through food. With two price points to choose from, Try the World sends you artisanal and gourmet foods from different cultures

each month. Each box comes with a “culture guide” that includes the story behind each food, recipes that incorporate the products, and tips to enhance your food- tasting experience. Like most subscription boxes, you can’t choose which country’s foods you’ll sample. However, you can purchase individual items at Try the World’s online shop. Customers can pause or cancel their subscription any time, and pricing depends on the length of your subscription.

Graze prices depend on the services and products you select, but a standard subscription starts at $13.99 per box. Like Try the World, you can purchase snacks separately from their online shop. Customers can pause their subscription for up to 12 weeks or cancel their deliveries at any time. Trying new food should be a fun, stress-free experience. Food subscription boxes allow you to sample new snacks and create foreign meals cheaply and from the comfort of your own home. Try a box the next time you’re feeling adventurous in the kitchen.

MEET TRACY BRYANT! This month, we decided to include an employee spotlight in our newsletter. What better way to start out than with our paralegal, Tracy Bryant.

He did give me a Bose speaker for my birthday though. My friends say they’re jealous of me.”

When Tracy isn’t in the office, she’s out enjoying an active lifestyle. She’s been a softball coach for 27 years and she helps with animal rescue shelters. She herself houses seven dogs that were too abused to go on and kindly took them in herself. “I do home visits when I can,” she explains. “I like volunteering and helping all sorts of animals out of bad situations and into better homes.” Tracy has a 16-year-old daughter, Kylie, who she’s really close to. Kylie plays softball for her high school, and when Tracy states, “I’ve coached her since she was little,” it is with obvious pride. Not only does she coach and support her daughter, but Tracy also continues to play softball and box. We at Nixon, Vogelman, Barry, Slawsky and Simoneau are proud to have a paralegal on our team like Tracy who is so dedicated to helping others. She’s an amazing person and puts a lot of work, effort, and love into everything she does.

Tracy started working as a paralegal in the spring of 1991. Her goal is to help people through their most difficult moments in life. “That’s my favorite part of my job,” she says, “to give people help after all they’ve been through.” Tracy strives to help everyone who comes through our doors to get their lives back to normal. “I’m truly blessed to work here,” Tracy says, thinking about her time spent at Nixon, Vogelman, Barry, Slawsky, and Simoneau. She enjoys the friendly atmosphere and how everyone is exceptionally pleasant. “Everyone is extremely nice, and they do special things for us,” Tracy adds when talking about the higher ups. “Sometimes they let us out early, and they’ll do things like luncheons. It’s just a great place to work.” She’s been working with Kirk Simoneau for ten years, and that feat doesn’t slip past him. “He reminded me,” Tracy laughs, “but he says he’s not getting me a present.
