The Great Meal DeliveryJourney: Hello Fresh Review & Coupon Code

Our next stop on the Great Meal Delivery Journey is Hello Fresh. Hello Fresh is the company Jamie Oliver has partnered with and I think you can tell. The ingredients are fresh, delicious, and easy to make. Just check out the spread below- yum...

I think we ordered from Hello Fresh about 3-4 times. We obviously liked it lol

You have the option of choosing between a Classic, Veggie, or Family Box. We did Classic each time and there was always plenty of food for the two of us. They also send you an apron with your first box which is pretty cool... I like free stuff :)

It's also really easy to put your subscription on hold if you're going on vacation or cancel it if you're unhappy with it. Everything is done online which I love.

There wasn't really anything that we disliked about Hello Fresh. I think we were missing 1 potato from one of our boxes once but that was it. 

Meals typically range around $70 a week but if you follow this link and enter the coupon code ZXM8K4 at checkout- you can try it for $30 instead with free shipping included. So that will be 3 meals for 2 people for $30 with free shipping- it's a win/ win :)

FREE George Foreman Grill

FREE George Foreman  Grill for new TopCashBack members! Just click here. If you're new to TopCashBack it's absolutely free to join and similar to ebates (where you simply access their site first before making a purchase elsewhere and they give you cash back on your purchase).

Once you sign up and click the pink "Get Cashback" button, just make sure to add nothing else to your cart or you'll only get a percentage back as opposed to the total amount for the grill. It takes a couple weeks but once the company has verified your purchase, the money will show up in your account and you can either get it deposited directly into your checking, send it to your Paypal, or get an Amazon gift card for the amount.

Let me know if you have any questions! :)

The Great Meal Delivery Journey: Home Chef Review

I decided to go on a quest a while back to find the best meal delivery service. It's crazy how many are really out there and I think we've been having meals shipped to our house for over 2 months now... kind of crazy... and awesome.

One of the first meal delivery services that we tried was Home Chef... I actually think it was the 3rd- but line- up doesn't really matter right? ANYWAYS- Here's what I thought about their service.

First off, I loved that they sent their recipes with a binder. You get so many giant recipe cards with each meal delivery service and this is the only one so far that I've come across that give you something to put them in. Thank- you

Secondly, I loved the quantity of food they give you. I think they also win in this department. Some of the meal delivery services left us hungry afterwards but Home Chef was definitely not one of them.

Thirdly, I loved that each recipe card said how many days our ingredients would stay fresh. This was not common among the other companies and something that really comes in handy if you can't cook all of your meal immediately. 

Finally, I loved the idea behind each of the recipes. Our 3 meals included Flavors of Buffalo Bleu Cheese Chicken Breast with Buffalo Cauliflower and Arugula salad, Chicken Marsala with Buttery Garlic Mushroom Sauce, and Texas- Style Steak on Toast with Red Onion Gravy & Smashed Red Potatoes. They all sound delicious right?

The downsides for me:

One, and this is a small one- but the pictures on the recipe cards were horrible. They were way oversaturated and looked like something out of Napoleon Dynamite. The photo of our steak dinner above looks better and it was taken with my phone... at night. Again- I realize this is a small complaint but something I think they could definitely improve upon.

Secondly- the meals were not my favorite of everything we tried. They weren't bad at all. But they were lacking a bit in... I don't know... something. I guess they just tasted average in terms of flavor... like something you'd get at a chain restaurant

But overall, it was a really great experience. I also only tried them for two weeks so my experience is solely based on that.

If you'd like to try Home Chef for yourself, click here to get $30 off your 1st week's worth of meals. That's 3 meals for 2 people for about $30- not a bad deal :)
