For those of you who have been following me for a while now you probably know that I love to cook! If you didn’t know that, well, now you do.
About a month ago, however, a friend mentioned she had tried something new and I was intrigued. She had tried HelloFresh, a meal box subscription service. Now I love my subscriptions, we do Citrus Lane, Honest Co and Fabletics to name a few but I’d never thought to try one for meals. She had a few “share these with a friend” codes so she passed one along to me.
We got our first box a few weeks ago and I LOVED it! Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about it. The veggies were super fresh and the proteins were of a really high quality. The recipes were innovative and fun. The delivery was awesome and everything tasted delicious.
So what is HelloFresh exactly? Here’s how it works:
You sign up for an account and chose the meals for your box that week. The Classic Box has 5 options and you select 3.
They deliver everything to your door. The proteins were kept on dry ice packs and super cold when they arrived.
The produce and other ingredients were packaged by meal.
It also included recipes cards for each meal.
The meals I chose were:
Pan-Fried Shrimp Gyozas with Spring Edamame Succotash,
Smoky Chicken Fajitas with Blistered Corn Salsa and Fresh Guacamole
and Sage-Butter Pork Chops with Roasted Butternut Squash & Charred Broccolini
All three were just amazing! We had plenty of leftovers for both Darrin and I for lunch with the Smoky Chicken Fajitas. We would have had enough of the Shrimp Gyozas as well but Darrin isn’t a fan of leftover seafood so he stuffed himself at dinner and I had leftovers for lunch. We didn’t have any leftovers of the Sage-Butter Pork, but were both very full after dinner!
So now the nitty-gritty…How much does this all cost? The total cost for 2 people for a Classic Box is around $70. That’s $70 for what could have been 3 dinners and 2 lunches each for 2 people. In my house that’s a pretty good deal! It’s a tad more than what we would spend for 3 meals (and leftovers) if I was just purchasing it at the store but I’m also getting simple and fun new meals to try and really fresh ingredients delivered right to my house!
If you’re still a little hesitant, like I was, I have a code that will get you $40 off of your first box! That means for around $30 you’ll have at least 3 dinners for 2 people (and probably some lunches as well)! Now $30 for 3 meals for 2 people (plus leftovers) is a super great deal in my book. It’s totally risk free – you can cancel after the first box in just a minute or two.
So, what are you waiting for? Try HelloFresh for yourself today! I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as we do.
