In the last year, I've seen meal kits everywhere. I know that they deliver ingredients and recipe cards, but apart from that, I've never really given them much thought.
I'm not the kind of person that can just try something completely new on a whim. I'm that person that needs to read the whole menu of a restaurant days before my reservation so I can be sure of what I want! So when I kept seeing HelloFresh all over my social media feed, I didn't pay too much attention.
But then, about a month ago, I saw a picture of Sweet Chili Pork Bowls with Bell Pepper & Candied Peanuts that looked too good to keep scrolling! I finally decided to check out HelloFresh to see what it was all about.
The menus on their website looked incredible-- the perfect mix of international recipes and classic American home cooking. My mouth watering, I was almost ready to select my meals and sign up but my curiosity got the better of me. What were other, real customers of HelloFresh really saying about the service?
Here's what I found:
"We have the vegetarian plan because my wife is a lifelong vegetarian, and all the meals have been wonderful. Oftentimes we see other companies doing vegetarian meals that don't have much substance or are not very filling but I can say that has never been an issue with HelloFresh." - Miles, MD
"I've tried Blue Apron and HelloFresh. HelloFresh is perfect for me, a single, working mom who still wants to cook dinner for the family. There are many, many diverse meal options each week, including kid-friendly options. I like that I can easily skip weeks as frequently as I want to. The best thing about HelloFresh is their customer service. They are easy to contact on phone or through messaging and always credit/refund me in case of the rare mistakes, no matter how small, no questions asked." - Lynzie, CA
"As most people, I have been cooking more and more and I have been 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" has truly enjoyed the variety as well as the excellent food." - Karla, NY

"I never liked to cook or felt like I could prepare a full meal very well. HelloFresh completely changed my mind and has given me so much more confidence in the kitchen! Every recipe we have tried is delicious and the ingredients are always fresh. My fiancé and I have learned so much about new foods and combinations we enjoy and have never eaten at home more!" - Alexis, MA
After reading one amazing review after another, it was enough to finally convince me to try it.
Initially, I was worried about being locked into a plan, but HelloFresh is completely flexible. If I need to cancel, change plans, or skip a week, I can do so anytime. Plus, I can customize my plan to certain meal preferences (Meat + Veggie, Vegetarian, Carlie Smart, Family Plan, Quick and Easy, Pescatarian), and also control how frequently I'm cooking-- 2, 3, or 4 recipes per week.
There are 23 global recipes to choose from each week, and everything I've tried so far has been really tasty. Last week I had the Tex-Mex Pork Enchilada Bowls, Mozzarella-Stuffed Caprese Burgers, and Lobster Ravioli-- so much variety, and the meals only take around 30 minutes to prepare.
If you're someone that is reluctant to try new things, I get that. But HelloFresh has made my weeknight dinners a whole lot easier, and delicious!
