The Truth about HelloFresh
So maybe I am addicted to subscription boxes..
I just love surprises! But I've always stuck with makeup or girly subscriptions. So this past week I decided to branch out and try something new!
About a week and a half ago, I was feeling really crummy and cooking was seriously the last thing I wanted to do. Then during my moment of weakness, I got an email with a $40 off a HelloFresh order! So naturally I checked it out.
They have three options which you can see below, I chose the classic plan. You can order 3, 4 or 5 meals for a week. I picked four meals for two people which normally would cost $79.92 but with my $40 off it only cost $39.92. That breaks down to about $5 per meal per person. That's less than going out but more than I'd spend grocery shopping, so not bad.
They give you the option to pick what day it's delivered, which is nice! But one downside is that they don't give you a delivery time option. This was inconvenient because I was at work all day and I didn't want it to get there first thing in the morning, then sit in the sun all day until I got home.
It sat on my front porch for a few hours but because they packed it with so much ice, everything was still fresh and cold. It was no big deal.
Now the fun begins!
Pictures speak louder than words so here are the meal boxes I got and one of the meals that I made..
This is what the recipe cards look like. You get one for every meal and they explain everything in detail for making the meal! It's super easy.
And there is the final product! The pineapple pork chops were *amazing!* I am definitely keeping this recipe so I can make it again. It was really easy!
My final thoughts on HelloFresh: The food was absolutely delicious so my husband and I loved all the meals! I was afraid the portion sizes were going to be too small for my husband but they were just right. I don't think I'll order the box again just because of the price, but I'm keeping all of the recipes that they sent! It was fun to try out and cook different types of meals.
Give it a try! I doubt you'll be disappointed! :) Let me know what your favorite types of subscriptions are! I'm always looking for more!
