HelloFresh Recipe Box

hellofresh-logoAs you might have noticed I buy both HelloFresh and Gousto recipe boxes. Few people have asked what is the difference between those two, so this blog is an overview of services offered by HelloFresh, and later there will be another one about services of Gousto. That way you will have all the information needed for you to decide which one to go for. However I think the best is to try both and you will see which one you prefer.

Freebies for your friends:

In your box you will also find some handy vouchers for discounts or freebies, such as wine, Graze snack box etc. Sometimes they add samples, I have had a Kinder Bueno and Tea bags in my box.

 

I like HelloFresh because the ingredients are fresh and the recipes are simple, yet tasty. I get to cook things I would not normally cook. And they have amazing customer service, they definitely follow the rule “Customer is always right” and they solve everything fast, really amazing!

So why do I buy both HelloFresh and Gousto? Just for even bigger variety, and to be honest Gousto is actually slightly cheaper as well.

Looking forward to hearing from you about your experience with HelloFresh. Please grab the £25 discount on your first box and let me know how did you find the HelloFresh recipe box.!

 

Thai Style Pork Stir Fry

As you may have noticed I am a big fan of Hello Fresh. I love the fact that I receive a new recipe and all the ingredients I need. So I do not have to research the internet for recipes and most importantly I do not have to be searching the shops for specific ingredients.

Here is a recipe that was in my box this week – Thai Style Pork Stir Fry, you might want to give it a go.

Btw I like to tweak recipes, so you may find it is not 100% identical to the original Hello Fresh recipe.
