HelloFresh – Where have you been all my life?

HelloFresh Review: We all know that parenthood can be a bit of a juggling act. Especially when you throw work into the mix as well. Hubby and I often find ourselves doing everything on the spur of the moment. Which also includes food shopping and discussion around what we are going to have for dinner. Which usually only occurs to either one of us on the way home from work or on the way to pick the kids up from childcare. That normally results in one of us making a quick dash to the shops grumbling about the fact the other party should have thought about it and done it before now! Sound familiar?

    Pictures look fab! This is something I’ve always thought about trying but to be honest the price puts me off. #bloggerclubuk

    I love the idea of Hello Fresh, especially for something that all the family can enjoy. I especially love the idea of shopping less, and not being tempted by offers in the supermarket! I usually spend less when I shop online for food and don’t visit the supermarket. Your little ones look like they’re enjoying the food!

    I’ve always been against this type of food, but I’m slowly coming round to the idea. Especially when we’re heading into a busy period and want to make sure we’re all eating a balanced meal with out thinking. Very tempted, just need to ensure they can handle my son and husband’s peanut and shellfish allergy! #BloggerClubUK

    I love the idea of Hello Fresh and keep meaning to give it a go – I wish they did a box to suit both vegetarian and meat eaters because that’s what is stopping me at the moment. The food all looks so delicious 🙂 #BloggerClubUK

  5. November 15, 2017 / 7:28 pm

    These boxes look fab and I’m tempted to try them. I think having a trial for a self catering staycation would be great as it’d feel like a treat to have it all there. #bloggerclubuk

  6. November 15, 2017 / 7:58 pm

    Hi, I love the idea of these boxes we did give it a try but it was hard for me as dairy free alternatives were not possible #bloggerclubuk

  7. November 15, 2017 / 8:34 pm

    Have always fancied trying this out for our family so interested to hear how you got on.

  8. November 15, 2017 / 8:48 pm

    Looks fab, the meals you prepared look delicious. #BloggerClubUk

  9. November 15, 2017 / 8:55 pm

    Sounds great – do you think it really equals out budget wise do you think – versus supermarket shopping? #bloggerclubuk

  10. November 15, 2017 / 10:08 pm

    These look good. The price puts me off, as I can shop for a family of four for all meals for a whole week for roughly the same, but it might be something worth trying as a treat. Some of those recipes look great but are ones I perhaps wouldn’t try on my own – the coconut rice sounds lush.

  11. November 15, 2017 / 10:12 pm

    I loved Hello Fresh when I tried it, if anything I got sent too much food. Unfortunately as I’m veggie and my husband is very much not, there weren’t enough recipes that we would both eat #bloggerclubuk

    I’m glad you had a good experience with them. I was sent off, nasty chicken and they did nothing about it.

    I have read lots of great reviews of Hello Fresh but have yet to try them myself – they would be great for new mums and dads, especially, who have little time on their hands to shop for meals!

  14. November 16, 2017 / 11:01 am

    I love the idea of Hello Fresh, home cooked meals made easy. I shall be checking them out! X

    Such a great idea for busy families
    Healthy food is the gateway to a happy family

  16. November 16, 2017 / 6:28 pm

    I always want to try this but Hubster is a picky eater. I’m afraid it will be wasted. I may just give it a go though, your meals looked delicious! #BloggerClubUK

    whilst I love the idea of hello fresh, due to the cost of feeding a family these days I am afraid a recipe would turn up that no one would eat and waste money on it

  18. November 16, 2017 / 9:50 pm

    The meals look delicious. We’ve recently started getting a veg box with add ons and I love it. So much easier getting it delivered every week #bloggerclubuk

  19. john prendergast

    These meals look nice and fresh

  20. November 17, 2017 / 12:30 pm

    Ooh this was interesting. They always come to our door to try to sell it to us! Helpful review thanks.

  21. November 18, 2017 / 2:42 pm

    I’ve never heard of this meal delivery company but it sounds interesting. It probably wouldn’t work for my family as my youngest is a really picky eater but the food looks delicious! Thanks for hosting #bloggerclubuk

    Hello Fresh meals look lovely, never even considered them fo us but maybe now………

    November 19, 2017 / 3:04 pm

    The meals look great but a little too expensive for my budget

  24. Lyndsey Cooksey
    November 19, 2017 / 11:40 pm

    The young ones look like they are enjoying their food! Great review. I’ve heard about this company before but I do think about the cost and also if it benefits the family… Which it looks like it does lol. I’ll have to have a look round the website x

    I think it’s a great idea and I’d like to try the cumin roast chicken.

  29. November 26, 2017 / 9:20 am

    This is such a great idea! Living in Africa I have no choice but to cook from scratch everyday, I find it way more difficult to stick to that when we are visiting Uk as it’s just easier to buy ready made. This is such a great way of getting families eating well again x x #bloggerclubuk

    I really need to try this. There is so much unintentional food waste at our house. A lot of it is to do with the fact that I don’t plan ahead when I do the shopping and am often stuck for ideas.

  31. Lorna Ledger
    November 26, 2017 / 4:38 pm

    Really really love the idea of this/these recipe boxes, my only down point would be cost… but, there are a lot of cons, time saving, and helping you to discover together.

  32. Lindsey Stuart

    I have never tried hello fresh what a super idea, the recipe ideas are great too

  33. November 29, 2017 / 1:34 pm

    These look very convenient but I’m very worried about the environmental impact of all that packaging, especially as so much of it is non recyclable. There seem to be a lot of tiny packages of things you would normally buy in a single, larger pack. And that means much more waste per total amount of product. I’m surprised these boxes have caught on at a time when we are meant to be reducing our packaging waste.

    I have been meaning to try recipe boxes for some time. The problem with baking from scratch at home using my own recipes is the number of products left in the cupboard for months and years afterwards from which only a teaspoon or tablespoon has been used. Although Hello Fresh and similar boxes seem expensive, at least there is no waste.

    It is great that it comes with the right balance of veg, protein and carbohydrate

    I love the idea of this and I shall definitely look into it now that you have promoted it so well. Thank you.

    never used anything like this, but like the idea of it

    I hate shopping and as you say you do get tempted to buy extra things when out because they are on offer. I even get offered things and am being told my offer is incomplete when shopping online which soon adds up to a lot more than you would usually spend. HelloFresh sounds like a great idea and I will definitley be looking into incorporating it into our mealtimes.

  39. Kayleigh Watkins
    December 4, 2017 / 10:47 pm

    This sounds ideal for us, there are 5 of us and we end up picking up whatever we fancy for food on the day, we usually end up spending more than we would if we did a weekly shop, I also cook to much so having the ingredients measured out would be perfect too for less waste xx

    December 6, 2017 / 12:50 pm

    I like this idea of not having to think up meals every day, it would make life so much easier but the price is definitely too high for me.

    Kids seem to always love spaghetti – I wonder why?

  42. Leila Benhamida

    Will definitely their boxes as I run of idea for meals time to times. Looks delicious

  43. hannah Wood

    This looks so yummy very worth it .

  44. Laura Pritchard
    December 12, 2017 / 2:58 pm

    This is perfect for an idiot in the kitchen like me!! I need step by step instructions!

  45. Rachel Butler
    December 12, 2017 / 11:28 pm

    My friend at work was just telling me about this last week! She has signed up and has been raving about it! Totally something that I’m going to look into! xo

  46. December 13, 2017 / 10:01 am

    I have seen this service so many times on other bloggers sites and would love if this exists in Ireland. This would help so much to cook a meal from scratch so easy.

  47. Yolanda Davis
    December 13, 2017 / 7:19 pm

    I’ve seen adverts for Go Fresh, but wasn’t sure it would be value for money, but after reading this I might try it myself.

  48. Matthew Warman
    December 13, 2017 / 9:51 pm

    Those meals you made look really nice!

  49. Kev Cannon
    December 18, 2017 / 1:22 pm

    I like the idea of getting a box of ingredients already weighed and prepared but I also love preparing a meal from scratch so I don’t think I would use these. BUT they look great for people who are too busy to shop or don’t have time or the skill to cook from scratch. Excellent review

    December 21, 2017 / 9:43 pm

    These would certainly take me out of the cooking rut I am in and encourage me to try new things, they look really tasty too

  51. paula cheadle
    December 23, 2017 / 12:46 pm

    looks like a good selection, will be giving this some thought

  52. michelle hughes

    These look amazing! just what we could do with.
