There is a new HelloFresh Coupon code for $20 off that is valid through 7/15/13.
Do you ever get sick of grocery shopping and meal planning and wish that fresh ingredients and recipes would just show up at your doorstep? I know it sounds far fetched but I actually found a company that does just that! It is called HelloFresh. As I was researching the many meal planning options, I found HelloFresh and contacted them to see if I could complete a HelloFresh review for you. They supplied me a box and I was amazed by how much I liked it.
What is HelloFresh?
It is a new way to cook. Every week, you can pick the delicious recipes you want to try (except for under the veggie meal plan) and they will send you amazing recipes and all of the ingredients you need to prepare them. They take care of your meal planning and even do the shopping for you. It’s a revolution in your kitchen! With HelloFresh you save time, discover amazing food and provide a healthy diet to the people you love most. Say goodbye to fast food and ready meals heated up at the end of a busy day. Say hello to delicious home-cooked meals using fresh ingredients.
The recipes are created by world-class chefs who ensure that your meals are delicious and easy to prepare within 30 minutes. You don’t need fancy kitchen equipment and the beautiful step-by-step photo instructions will change the way you think about cooking!
It is obviously more expensive than meal planning and shopping yourself but you are paying for convenience. The classic box with proteins starts at $9.94 per serving including shipping when you buy the 6 person box. The 2 person 3 meal classic box is $69 or $11.50 per serving.
HelloFresh is offering Bargain Shopper Mom readers a HelloFresh coupon code of $20 off a box to try it out! This makes it a nice deal and almost cheaper than fast food. Just use the coupon code AHELLOSUMMERat checkout. The $20 HelloFresh coupon code is good through June 20, 2013.
When you compare the prices of the box vs going to a location where you prepare frozen meals, the price is fairly comparable plus you get all fresh ingredients!
Here is a bit more about my experience with HelloFresh and a HelloFresh review.
The box off food showed up at my home last week. Everything was still cold and nicely packaged. (picture at top) Here is a picture of all the food once I pulled it out of the box.
All the items are labeled and in bags so you know which food goes which each recipe. I love that it comes with fresh herbs and vegetables. It also includes items that you just need a bit of like sesame oil. Normally, you would have to buy a whole jar which is pricey when you only need two tablespoons for a recipe.
This Soba Noodle salad with Chicken and Mango was so tasty. I would normally never prepare something like this so it was fun to try something new.
Here is a picture of all the ingredients for Carne Asada Tacos. Again, everything is included even fresh cilantro and hot sauce. The only think not included is olive oil and salt and pepper.
The recipes come on nice cards with very clear instructions on how to make the meals. There is a picture of the completed meal, all the ingredients and step by step pictures.
It is so easy to make you might get lucky like me and find your husband starting the meal when you come home from running errands. HelloFresh makes is so easy that anyone can prepare fresh delicious meals.
Here is everything all chopped, cooked and ready to be made into tacos. My whole family loved it. I actually just bought a bit more flank steak and it fed my family of 4 even though it was a two person box. There were plenty of tortillas, toppings and beans for everyone.
Overall, I was very pleased with HelloFresh. It was wonderful to have homemade fresh meals without all the meal planning and grocery shopping. It is a bit pricey but it is a great example of you get what you pay for. The ingredients are all fresh and high quality. The meals are easy to make and healthy plus they taste great. If meal planning and shopping is overwhelming for you, this would be a a great service to try especially with the $20 off coupon code. Remember the coupon code is only good though June 20, 2013 so don’t delay.
