{Review} HelloFresh Dinner Kits

Our family recently enjoyed the opportunity to review the HelloFresh Dinner Kits service with the Mosaic Reviews team. I was given the choice of choosing between a Classic Box or Veggie Box. I chose the Classic Box which included three complete meals for two people.

The HelloFresh service was easy to use! The week prior to the scheduled delivery, I logged on the HelloFresh website, previewed the three main meal options and two available substitutes. I selected to receive the three main meals options since I thought each meal was one my family would enjoy. I appreciated having two substitutes available in case we did not like one selection. The selection process only took a few minutes.

When the HelloFresh box arrived, the kids were excited to dive right in the package! Delivery dates are every Wednesday and we were home when the package arrived. The box is packaged for the contents to stay fresh for the day had we been away from home.

We were all delighted to see the huge box of food that arrived in individually-wrapped and labeled packages. The box was heavily insulated to keep the food at the proper temperature during shipment.

The package included three large ice packs. I was impressed that they were still completely frozen upon arrival. All of the food inside of the package was fresh and cold.

The kids pulled out all of the items and matched them up with their recipe cards. Of course, they wanted to instantly begin the cooking process.

The three meals included in the Classic Box for our delivery week were:
  • Apricot Glazed Turkey with Beets and Orzo
  • Stuffed Squash with Cherry Balsamic Reduction
  • Dill Crusted Tilapia with Sweet Potato & Cranberry Medley
Each meal included a colorful recipe card with complete instructions. The meal preparation was as easy as could be. Each item needed for the recipe was clearly labeled.

The meals were not typical ones that I would choose for our family. For instance, I have never made beets for our family. The HelloFresh meals expanded our horizons and gave us new menu selections. The Apricot Glazed Turkey was simply delicious. The beets and orzo were a nice compliment with the spicy kick of the Siracha sauce. This dish gave us a new appreciation for beets.

Our daughter enjoyed helping with the preparations for the Stuffed Squash. This meal was our first introduction to acorn squash. We love butternut squash and the acorn squash was just as delightful. The squash was stuffed with a beef and rice mixture and topped with a dried cherry balsamic reduction.

The last meal we prepared was the Dill Crusted Tilapia and Sweet Potato Medley. The Tilapia was baked with a dill and parmesan coating. The sweet potato and cranberry medley was a yummy side dish. I never would have imagined these two flavors together and it was a lovely meal.

Overall, we absolutely loved our experience with HelloFresh. The food was fresh, the meals unique, and the convenience was quite welcomed in our busy home. As a homeschool family, we particularly enjoyed the educational process of following recipe cards, using measurements, and preparing food.

This is a premium service that does not fit within our frugal budget. Should you have the budget to explore a premium dinner service, I heartily recommend HelloFresh.

The HelloFresh service would make an excellent gift for a newly married couple or anyone that would enjoy a meal delivery service.
