Gousto gives you less options for recipe boxes to choose from. The setting for your box is much easier and more simple than HelloFresh:
- A box for 2 or 4 people
- 2 or 3 or 4 meals per box
Though you have a certain box pre-set in your subscription settings it is very easy to add servings or meals when you are choosing your recipes without having to change the basic settings, unlike with HelloFresh where you always have to go to the main settings.
Which box do I usually go for? When ordering Gousto I always order 4 meals for 2 people and it costs me just £34.99 which is even less than HelloFresh 3 meals for 2.
However, there is few ingredients that are not provided in the Gousto recipe box compared to HelloFresh. The only stuff that you need to have at home while cooking with HelloFresh are salt, pepper and oil. There is few more things that you need to have at home while preparing Gousto meals – oil, salt, pepper, sugar, milk, flour, butter. Personally I do not buy butter, so I use olive oil spread instead as I usually forget to check what I need for the recipe. I do not use sugar, I use carob or date syrup instead which I think works even better as it is liquid form so it is easy to dissolve and mix. I do not have cow milk in the house so I usually use almond milk.
