Hello Fresh Box

Recently I have recived a lot a questions form you all regarding the Hello fresh box that i get weekly. So today i thought I would write a post answering all you questions and give you a little more information about it.

When, Why and How 

Around 9 Months ago i received a leaflet with a £20 off code for a hello fresh box. I hadn't herd of this company before so i decided to check out their website to see what it was all about. My husband and I decided it was a great idea and went ahead and ordered our first box. From this moment every Tuesday morning i receive my weekly box, with fresh ingredients that make 5 scummy meals. 

The reason why we went ahead to try the hello fresh box was to get out of our dinner rut. Week in week out was spent eating the same meals, Not healthy one at that either. I was bored of cooking them and everyone was fed up eating the same things. We were hoping the hello fresh box was going to get us out of the rut and also to add more fresh veg and quality meat/ fish into our diet. 

Hello fresh have their own website where you sign up, choose the type of box you want and wait for it to be delivered. Simple, No need to spend hours in the super market working out what to buy for that weeks dinners

About Hello Fresh box

Hello fresh has four types of boxes, Classic box, Veggie box, Family box and Trial box.

Classic box - The classic box comes in two different ways. 3 meals a week for 2,3 or 4 people and 5 meals a week for 2 people (this is the box that we get) prices from £39.00

Veggie box - The veggie box comes as 3 meals a week for either 2 or 4 people. prices from £36.00

Family box - The family box comes as either 2 or 4 meals a week for 4-5 people. Prices from £39.95

Trial Box - As it says on the tin (or shall we say box) The trial box is to try hello fresh to see if you like it before signing up for a weekly delivery. This comes as a 3 meal a week for either 2 or 4 people. Prices from £42.00 

What do you get

As I've mentioned above, depending on what box you get will determine how much and what you will receive. 

It quite explanatory, family box makes meals with children in mind, veggie box you won't receive any meat or fish and the classic box meals are aimed more for adults. 

Here is this weeks box!








The meals






More information

All the food that needs to be kept cold is stored in a plastic bag wrapped in instalation with ice packs. So if your not in when its been delivered the food will be kept cold. Your delivery day is always the same and my delivery driver always seems to deliver between 11 and 2.


The thing i like about the recipe cards is that everything is made easy to read and understand. They include the time it takes to cook, however i would say that most of them take a shorter amount of time then they say. All the Ingredients are pictured what is great for when Taylor is helping me. The instructions are clear and easy. 
Even though Hello fresh is a weekly subscription you can cancel boxes by login on to your account on their website. So if you don't want to receive it every week you could cancel every other week and of course for when your away or on holiday. Yet again doing this is really quick and easy to do. 


We love everything about the hello fresh box. I can honestly say out of the 9 months we have received the box there has only been a handful of meals that haven't been to our taste. It has defiantly made me more experimental with food being able to see what we have in the fridge and cupboard and make a meal out of it.   



I hope this answered your questions and helped you make a decision if the hello fresh box is for you. 

Thanks for reading
