Planning meals and shopping for ingredients is sooo 20th century. That’s why pre-packaged meal delivery services have become so popular. Today let’s take a look at one of the biggest names in the industry: Hello Fresh.

The Skinny on the Food

Oh, to be a taster at Hello Fresh…. They sample and taste their recipes more than 200 times, which ensures everything customers receive has passed an extensive and varied taste test. And we have to say, the attention to detail works, because the beef, chicken, fish, veggies, and sides were all delicious and fresh. The portions were just right as well.
