Meal Time Box is a meal to your door subscription box made with fresh high-quality ingredients and delivered every 1, 2 or 4 weeks.

DEAL: Get 15% off your first subscription or one-time box! Use coupon code HELLO15.

Everything was packed well in a cooler box with several large ice packs keeping it cold. Each meal is carefully vacuum sealed in one or two packets. The meals will be good in the fridge for up to four days or in the freezer for longer storage. And, you don’t have to worry about freezer burn because the vacuum sealing helps prevent that.

Meal Time Box‘s chef selected subscription box consists of five meals that rotate to five different meals every two weeks. You can choose the 10 meal box for $10.50 per meal ($9.55 for subscribe and save) or the 20 meal box for $9.50 ($8.55 for subscribe and save). (Make sure you click subscribe and save when you are checking out to get the discount.) Then choose how often you want your meals, once a week, every two weeks, or every four weeks. You will also get two free desserts with your box.

We received the 10 meal box (two of each meal) for our review.

They also offer a la carte meals that you can choose from for $21 for a two meal bundle ($10.50 a piece). Shipping is free for orders over $75.

They have a limited shipping area right now (see it in blue on the brochure above), but if you are anywhere close to their area, call and see if they would be able to ship to you. I am a little out of the shipping zone and they were willing to work with me.

The first meal that we tried was this Beef Stroganoff. “Hearty meal of tender beef chunks, mushroom, and gravy over egg noodles, with a touch of sour cream and fresh dill.”

The beef chunks were melt in your mouth tender and the flavor was great. Surprisingly, the noodles were still al dente, not mushy at all. There was a little too much liquid after I microwaved it, but I just poured it off and it was good to go.

The second meal that we tried out was this Roast Pork which was served with potatoes and broccoli. This is pork loin brined with water, brown sugar, salt and garlic and then rubbed with salt, fennel seeds, coriander seeds and black peppercorn. And, it is divine. The combination of spices is perfect. Normally, pork loin is not my favorite, but the flavors in this one have me reconsidering. Very yummy.

The next meal was this Pollo Fricassee, a traditional Puerto Rican chicken stew with potatoes and carrots. Also known as Chicken in a Pot, this warm and inviting stew is perfect for chilly weather. It was warm and seasoned just right.  The red-ish color might make you think it is spicy hot, but the flavor is mild and comforting.

The fourth meal in the Mealtime box was this Korean Fried Chicken with gochujang sauce served with brown rice and greens (turnip I think). This dish was just slightly spicy, but not overpowering. The brown rice and greens were a perfect pairing. I ate this for lunch today and could not quite finish it. It was very good and the portions size was more than ample.

Salisbury Steak with broccoli and potatoes was the last meal in the box. The consistency of the gravy was a little thick after microwaving, but I think I will try sprinkling it with a little water before microwaving it next time. The flavor was still great, with lots of mushrooms and onions over the meat. It made for a very satisfying meal, and again I was impressed by the large portion size. It was really enough for two of my bigger kids to share.

When you subscribe to the Meal Time Box with 10 or 20 meals, they also include two free desserts from ARV Sweets. The sweets in our box were these Rocky Road Brownies. These were “quick, hide them before the children see them” good! That white stuff on the top? That’s marshmallow creme and white chocolate, I think. There were chunks of chocolate in the brownies too and they are just ridiculously good. I recommend eating one first so you don’t fill up and not have room!

Meal Time Box is a great way to get the home-cooking you crave delivered to your door. The packaging is convenient and would be great to take to work or to just eat at home to save the time and mess of cooking. I love that they are freezable too, so if you order and then find you have other dinner plans for a few days you can just throw them in the freezer until you do need them. It also occurs to me that it would be a wonderful holiday sentiment to send the Meal Time Box to elderly family members that may need a little help with meal prep. They have a counter at the top of their page right now to let you know if you still have time to get your order in time for Christmas.
