So, apparently I didn’t cancel my Hello Fresh subscription in time so I received another box over the weekend. I was slightly annoyed because I didn’t want another box. With the applied credit of $23 from the last box’s missing ingredients, the total cost was $46. A little pricy (since I am getting a shipment from Blue Apron on Wednesday), but a more reasonable price in my book. Just looks like I’m going to have A LOT of cooking to do.

The Delivery

The box was much better on this delivery than on the first. I don’t know if my first box was missing more than just the chicken/shrimp or if Hello Fresh made improvements since my first order. There was an instruction book that told you more about their tips for ingredients and what you may need to have in your house to compliment their recipes. They also had advertisements for other snack programs, which is similar to a company I am obsessed with – Graze.com. Not sure if I’ll try these out, but a clever avenue to advertise their product. Chicken and shrimp were also included in this box, which is a plus. Overall, a much, much better impression.

This week’s meals include:

  • Spring Asparagus and Shrimp Risotto
  • Dukkah-Roasted Chicken
  • Mushroom and Spinach Flatbread

I’m excited to get started!
