Hello Fresh is a weekly meal kit subscription box with complete recipes and high-quality ingredients to make your own fresh, healthy, gourmet meals at home.
They offer three different subscription options — Classic (choose 3, 4, or 5 meals for 2 people or 3 meals for 4 people from 6 weekly options), Vegetarian (receive 3 HF-selected meals for 2 or 4 people), and Family (receive 3 HF-selected meals for 2 kids and 2 adults). You can always pause the subscription to skip a week if you need to – this is super handy for vacations!
Each Hello Fresh recipe has its own lovely card with a picture of the plated dish, prep time and total time to table, calorie count, and a visual inventory of the included ingredients.
DEAL: Currently, you can save $40 off your first box with coupon code 7UT7K8.
The instructions are easy to follow, regardless of your skill level. Usually you start by washing and prepping all the ingredients before cooking. Within the detailed, step-by-step instructions, ingredients are set in bold type for ease of recognition. Info panes in the sidebar list anything you’ll need from home (pans, cooking oil, etc), as well as the quantity of each provided ingredient needed for 2 and 4 person versions of the recipe.
The ingredients for each meal are packed in separate bags within a padded, insulated cooler bag. Several ice packs keep everything cold, with the individual paper bags protecting the ingredients from touching the ice directly.
The box also comes with a complete nutrition information for each recipe, including a list of all ingredients and their country of origin.
The brown bags used by Hello Fresh keep all the ingredients for the recipes in order. Everything but the largest vegetables is separately packaged within the bags. Condiments and canned goods are provided in high-end, commercial packaging. Hello Fresh usually provides pre-measured spices in their own branded packaging.
