What is Hellofresh?
Hellofresh are a leading global subscription delivery service that brings cook-it-yourself meal kits to your door. Hellofresh delivers you weekly fresh, pre-measured ingredients with step by step recipes.
How does Hellofresh work?
Sign up in a few minutes (use my £20 free credit), pick a meal plan depending on your eating preferences, when you want it and the size of your household (from 2 people). Hellofresh will then deliver your HelloFresh box to your doorstep at the day of your choosing (7 days/week).
Is Hellofresh expensive?
Hellofresh is not expensive, nor is inexpensive. The price of your delivery depends on the type of box you order and the meals or add-ons you select each week. It is cheaper than eating out, but more expensive than going to the supermarket (where you can buy food in bulk and don’t have a delivery cost of £3).
How much is Hellofresh?
For 2 people, it costs approx £4.50 per serving for three meals plus a £3 delivery fee, so £29.99/week for two people. The cost per meal seems cheaper the more people in your household. A family of four works out as £3.58 a meal per person.
Hellofresh box choices
Hellofresh gives you a choice of 4 different box set:
Option 1. Quick cook (Easy recipes for meals cooked in 20mins).
Option 2. Meat & Veggies (handpicked selection of our favourite, quick-cook, and low-calorie recipes).
Option 3. Family (Great tasting, easy to prepare, kid-approved crowd-pleasers that everyone will love).
Option 4. Chef’s boxes (Their Head Chef Andre will send you his favourite recipes of the week).
What is good about HelloFresh?
*Amazing opportunity if you want to learn to cook or don’t have time to plan your meals for the week.
*The service will help you avoid the urge to order a takeaway.
*Saves you time buying from the supermarket.
*Top meal quality with lots of new recipes.
*£20 Refer your Friend code – off your first order.
*Tasty new recipes, which can change each week.
*Inexpensive way of eating home-cooked food.
*Lower carbon footprint – meal kits have a much lower overall carbon footprint than the same meals purchased at a grocery store, despite having more packaging.
What is not so good about HelloFresh?
*£4.50 a meal, so not super cheap, however, the quality is high.
*It arrives every week (unless you pause it), meaning if you forget, you may have excess food to get through
*Only single-use portions of everything, so you can’t save a meal for lunch the next day unless you cook two meals.
*Not great for single people, as aimed at 2-4 people in a household. N.B. A single person could batch cook 2 portions technically, dinner and lunch the next day.
£20 refer a friend code
Here is referral code to give you £20 off your first box order, for 6 meals worth. Once joined up, you can also refer people for £20 credit for yourself and them. Essentially almost a free box for your friends and family.

HelloFresh is a market leader in cook-it-yourself meals for a reason. They are a great option for families and time-poor couples who need to stop buying unhealthy takeaways. HelloFresh offers new healthy meals that might get you into cooking again! Despite not being the cheapest (around £4.50 a meal) and not ideal for single people, I recommended trying a box and see how you find it. Try HelloFresh now for £20 off your first order.
