HelloFresh + Our First Box


Let me tell you, I was so nervous to get our first Hello Fresh box. It sounded way too easy and hell, just too much of a great idea. But we got our first box yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. So let me tell you about my new best friend…

For those of you who have never heard of it, Hello Fresh is an amazing company that wanted to bring the deliciousness of gourmet meals to your doorstep, with the ease of a few button clicks. Choosing from two different types of boxes, for the herbivores or omnivores, you can then choose how many folks you’ll be feeding. You then get to scroll through the mouth watering menu options to choose what will be in your box on your next week’s delivery. Every item, from cloves of garlic and spices to meats and veggies are measured out and come with an easy to follow recipe card for meals you generally wouldn’t attempt on your own. For this week’s delivery, we received three options – Panko Crusted Trout with Lemon Butter Sauce, Parsnip Mash + Broccoli, Homestyle Chicken Fried Steak with Mashed Potatoes + Peas, and Crispy Chicken Biryani with Spiced Basmati Rice, Golden Raisins + Peas.


Each meal is separated into it’s own box and delivered with ice packs to spare! The ice was still frozen as we unpacked it and our meats were frigid and fresh. Every item was in great condition, no bruising or rotten produce, and the meats and seafood were tightly packed to ensure no openings or leakage.

If you’re still not totally convinced, here’s a couple fun things to think about…

If you need to pause your orders (be it vacation or you just don’t have the funds), do so the Wednesday before your next delivery and you won’t need to worry about being home to receive it or paying for a box you can’t/won’t use.
