Everybody is talking about meal kits, and it's obvious why. Getting pre-portioned ingredients delivered to your doorstep along with recipe cards? Talk about convenience.
There are so many different meal kit companies out there though. The meal kit market is highly saturated, so it can be hard to know which one to subscribe to. But never fear--we've done our research and found the most popular meal kit out there: HelloFresh.
HelloFresh's customers have been raving about their delicious meals and convenient service, but does it really live up to the hype?
We read tons of HelloFresh reviews from real customers so you don't have to. Here's what we found:
Over 27 recipes to choose from each week - including global cuisines like Asian, Italian, Indian, Mexican, & American Style Gourmet Burgers.
"I've been cooking more and more (lately) and looking for new recipes. HelloFresh has not only provided that, but the food itself is fresh & VERY tasty. My husband, who was raised on meat and potatoes, truly enjoys the variety as well as the excellent food."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Karla
Recipes take about 30 minutes, and there are options for vegetarians, pescatarians, lower calorie meals, one-pot wonders, kid-approved meals, quick 'n' easy, and each week features a gourmet recipe selected by one of their award-winning chefs.
"This is an amazing meal service . . . The ingredients ARE fresh and the recipes are carefully explained on large colorful recipe cards . . . There's such a huge variety in types of meals with lots of chicken and vegetarian choices. I love love LOVE it and since I live alone the meals for 2 give me enough for an extra meal."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Connie
With HelloFresh there's no food waste because they send you the exact amount of each ingredient (which also means no tedious measuring). HelloFresh is the first global carbon-neutral meal kit company, offsetting 100% of their direct CO₂ emissions, and using sustainable packaging.
"These meals are restaurant-quality amazing! Saves time trying to figure out dinner every night . . . No waste - buying fresh herbs and throwing them out after one recipe. . . Only problem I see is deciding which meals to choose. Love them! A+"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Tami
The HelloFresh subscription is completely flexible. You can choose 2, 3, 4, or 5 recipes a week for 2 or 4 people, and tweak, pause, or cancel your plan at any time.
"HelloFresh is amazing! I got my first box when a friend was traveling into town so we could cook and try out new recipes together. The friend left and Hello Fresh stayed! . . . I love the variety of menu options offered and the flexibility it gives me. I can change the number of meals or when the box is delivered to fit my schedule. . . . Can't wait to try out more meals!"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Kara
HelloFresh has direct relationships with suppliers, cutting out the middlemen, so the price of ingredients isn't marked up, making it super affordable - starting at $7.49 per serving. This also helps put the "Fresh" in "HelloFresh"!
"I don't even know how to cook and I feel like a chef. It was so easy, and it came out beautifully . . . Each meal is separated into its own bag except the meat which is fine! Comes in a thick box with some sturdy ice packs in case you're not home when they deliver! I love it!"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Melissa
All those excellent reviews drove us to try HelloFresh ourselves, so we can confirm that it does live up to the hype. The recipes are delicious and easy-to-make with their simple recipe cards. Getting pre-portioned ingredients delivered to your door saves so much time, plus it's good for the environment! We'd highly recommend HelloFresh.
