    Just discovered Hungryroots, a colleague brought their pad thai fried rice to work and it looked real good so we shared. I can’t remember having a better meal ever since I switched to plant based. I ordered the starter set today, if everything is as good as the rice, I’m getting a lifetime subscription :D

    Everything great except for the portions, could be larger. I can eat the whole meal myself and it’s supposed to be 2 servings.

    Got my first box yesterday, loved the packaging and everything looked and smelled really nice. I was just surprised that there are such great differences in taste and quality among meals, some were awesome and some just meh. But I guess it takes a couple of orders to figure out what you like.

    This company has horrible customer service, which is not good as they can't seem to ship boxes properly. I personally received a broken box, with meat and ice packs broken and red goo all over everything (gel+meat juice = gross). a friend of mine tried and her meat came spoiled. If you look at marley spoon's facebook (what they dont delete anyways) there are pictures of moldy food, and countless stories of bad customer service and spoiled meat. I am personally blocked and my review deleted. I ordered a box and recieved it 7/25. it was my second box, i paid full price. It was busted and i promptly contacted customer service. i was told i'd get a refund and a free box for the inconvenience. refund in 7-10 days. I was traveling so i skipped a few boxes. 10 business days go by- no refund. I contact them again. They tell me OOPS we had a mistake we will issue it now. Friday comes along, and I got charged for my "free" box. That was it, patience over, guns blazing. I posted my story all over, customer service was rude to me when i asked why i was charged for my free box... i was livid. They blocked me and deleted my review on facebook. Still no refund. I shared my story on my facebook page and people went to their facebook and reshared my review (i'm still blocked). I eventually filed a paypal claim since I THANKFULLY paid that way for the busted box. Customer service has been sending me emails and i responded and alerted them of the paypal dispute, and they told me "they couldnt issue my refund unless I canceled the claim". 1) my refund was supposed to have already been issued. if thats the case, they can put that in paypal and it will close the claim. 2) asking me to cancel a paypal claim would void my protection and leave them in the position to never have to refund me. I posted about this as well, with many facebook friends chiming in that they will now never use this service. a few hours later, no more word from marley spoon, and now i have a refund on paypal! I didnt even have to wait 7-10 more days

    Only one star since 0 isn’t an option. Terrible. I am a member of 4 meal kit deliveries this is the worst. First off, the food is never delivered as cold as my other kits. Also the packing material is subpar compared to other kits. Paper bags stuffed with insulation type filling that was ripped and spilled all over my food. Received my first two orders, then skipped a week due to leaving for vacation, but SUPRISE! I was still charged and received a box of food. Customer service did nothing to assist offered no resolution. I contacted them prior to receiving my box (once I saw an email stating my box would be shipping) and nothing was addressed. All the recipes in the box I didn’t order are nothing I want to eat. Pricing most expensive meal kit after your initial little discount you receive.

    Bait and Switch!!! I heard Martha offer 3 Free meals, never once mentioned a credit towards 6 meals!!! Shame on you Martha!!! I felt bad when Martha was sent to prison, perhaps she deserved it!!!

    I have been a customer for 5 weeks. This has been my first experience with a meal delivery subscription. The food was wonderful. What I received that was safe to eat. Plus delivery was a major, major issue. The very first delivery, I received after 11 pm on my delivery day of Wednesday. It included all listed ingredients and both my husband and myself were surprisingly thrilled. We agreed to make these recipes ourselves. Because I was concerned about my box being late I did contact customer service via email and was given a ten dollar credit. Week 2 was a holiday week. My delivered was moved to Tuesday. It arrived in the middle of the day. All ingredients were included. We were happy with our menu choices, but it was unlikely we would cook these on our own. Week 3 my delivery arrived a day late, We loved one of the meals, but the second one was just not pleasing to our taste buds. Due to the delivery arriving a full day late, I was again given a ten dollar credit from customer service via an e mail conversation. Week 4. My delivery was a day late, again. But this time I wasn't home to receive it. So it sat outside all morning. In the summer heat of Las Vegas. I called once again. Because the protein and all cold items were warm and the ice packs were completely melted they did give me a credit for the full amount. I told customer service that if it happened again, I would cancel the service. They were very helpful and friendly. My only issue was actually getting through on the phone. I was hung up on by the auto service twice because they were too busy to help me. I was advised by "Martha Stewart" to try again later. Click. Week 4 rolls around. I had changed my delivery day to Tuesday, hoping that it would arrive on time. Nope. Again a day late and well past dinner time this time. We had pizza delivered. It was pretty good, but not what I was looking for. My box was warm and all items were unsafe. But I had already called customer service, after unsubscribing on line, and a very nice man listened to my complaints. He was my 2nd call because the first woman gave me incorrect information about tracking my delivery. Something I had asked about previously and received no answer on. Due to the time and the info the CS rep was able to find regarding tracking, he gave me a full refund, not a credit. I had stated that I believed my box had spent at least a day and a half sitting in a warehouse without air conditioning then loaded on a truck, also without air conditioning. He didn't make me wait for my delivery so I didn't have to call back. Once again the box items were warm and the ice packs were melted. I just might try this again, but never in the summertime. I loved the recipes we were able to make and am disappointed in the offerings from other services. So come fall, I will give them another shot, to see if they have fixed the delivery schedule issue.
