HelloFresh vs Gousto…

I’m a sucker for a good discount code, and I’ve seen numerous influencers posting codes lately about HelloFresh and Gousto so I thought I’d give them a try.

Although recipe boxes have been around awhile now, I’m totally new to trying them.

There’s a few pros and cons I’ve noticed so far.

Pros
  • As someone who despises doing the weekly food shop, it’s a bit of a no brainer for me! It saves a lot of time and effort.
  • It’s prevented me from picking up endless amounts of unnecessary snacks and special buys I really don’t need!
  • The ingredients are all pre portioned so there’s very little to no food waste.
  • You could add extra items to the checkout to pair with the meals.
  • All nutritional information is displayed so you know exactly what each portion contains.
  • The instructions are easy to follow and the photos are really helpful.
 
Cons
  • With HelloFresh, I had to pay before I could choose my recipes. A bit of a gamble – what if there weren’t any we liked?
  • A LOT of the recipes with HelloFresh were upgradable and an extra cost, so choice was limited.
  • Higher cost than our usual weekly food shop.
  • A lot of plastic packaging.

I’ve also previously tried Pasta Evangelists and these meals were a big hit in our house! Restaurant quality meals and the sauces come premade so super quick to cook (although I didn’t get that feeling of achievement you get when you cook a meal from scratch as it was already done for me).

Would I have them again? Yes, I probably would.

I’ve recently been recommended Mindful Chef and Grubby so they’re next on my list to try first though.

What are your thoughts on recipe boxes? Do you have any recommendations?
