  • We tried this because we thought it would be easier but we were so wrong. It was good the first week then went down hill.
    They claim to include everything you need for the recipes but then they expect you to have stuff like fish sauce or whatever to add to the ingredients they’ve given you. Like I never used fish sauce so I don’t have it in my cupboard so had to go out and buy the thing for ONE recipe. That isn’t what I call making it easier!
    Also, things started coming spilled, like the thickened cream was exploded all over the bag one week and the next barbecue sauce was everywhere so they weren’t packing things properly or they were just getting man handled.
    Portion size was also too small, it claimed to be for three people so hubby could have something to take for lunch but it was never enough.
    I can easily rant more but I’ll stop at that.
    Basically, it is a waste of money.

  • I ordered free box and as I like the recipes and convenience I don’t think its worth it all the money.

  • I agree, it is too expensive. I guess half the battle is deciding what to actually have, but for me who is so time poor, if I am paying that much money I certainly dont want to have to cook it as well! Money better spent on ready meals or Lite n Easy.

  • I found the veggies werent the best. But I added extra to it to get extra meals for left over. Only used when I had big discounts as otherwise not really worth it

  • I have not used it due to a preference for menu planning and hands on shopping.

  • I tried it out with one of the discount offers and had an increased cashback offer too. It’s expensive without the discounts but still cheaper than the amount my husband would spend on takeaway, and it means you’re less likely to go to the shops frequently. I did find the veggies were a bit older or partially rotting so there’s that to keep in mind too.

  • I don’t mind it but wouldn’t get it full price – we have had it when there was a discounted box offer and for that price it was good. There is a huge range of food options which I find handy (also some lower calorie ones) and so you can find something you’ll like. I find though the meals we cook ourselves mid week are easier and less time consuming than these.

  • More convenient but not cheaper. Can’t do every night and/or lunches so you still need to go shopping for a fair bit in my opinion.
    Portion size is a bit iffy especially if you are a bigger eater.
    Nice not to have to think of what to cook but then I find mound meals getting a bit similar/same tastes after a while.
    Definitely something to try for a few weeks though when you get a good discount

  • No I would just rather buy my own food as then I know that its what I really want and fresh

  • I’ve tried it and found it’s not for me and also too expensive

  • Its hit or miss really , for me it is not worth it if you try there free first box if they still do that it would not hurt to try to see how you go just make sure you cancel before the next box if you are unhappy with it .

  • We got a free box and it was not worth joining up at all. Friends of mine are spending a ridiculous amount of money to get hello fresh and it’s more than my weekly shopping bill

  • I’d like to know what MoMs think about Hello Fresh too. I would imagine it’s expensive but would love to know if the convenience makes it worth while.

  • I have not tried it and l would be interested to see the responses to see if it is good!

  • I prefer Dinnerly. It is cheaper and in my opinion has much better vegetarian options.
