    I checked out Munchery website because Michael Finney from 7 On Your Side had a free dessert coupon for them. After looking at the choices I decided not to move forward and left the site. Imagine my surprise when I couple of days later I heard a thump on my BACK porch and opened the door to find a delivery from Munchery. I was able to grab the box and return it to the driver, telling him I had not made any order. THEN I looked at my Credit Card statement and found that I'd been charged $57.95. Am wondering how the HELL did they get my card number when I didn't fill anything out?? BEWARE!!

    Nothing beats Munchery cooking kits. Both hubby and I love to cook and they even chop the ingredients, so we can pretend to be pro chefs and have a blast every time. Just awesome :)

    Possibly the only meal delivery service of this kind that offers same-day deliveries. Be sure to try the famous steak au poivre. Pricy as hell, but sooo worth it.

    Totally disappointed with their business model. What a scam. They hook you in and make it difficult to unsubscribe. I thought I did and because of that I did not create an order for the next week. A package came anyway (to our vacation address so the next lucky renters got some food I have to pay for). I have many allergies in my house and need to make sure what comes is edible for everyone. I called customer and got absolutely no where.

    I have been ordering Hello Fresh for several months now and I generally satisfied. I find that the recipes are pretty good. I am however sick and tired of taking a meal out of the fridge 4 days later and seeing that the meat is passed the ''best by''. I would expect to be able to make and eat a meal without having to worry about the meat being expired especially if it's before the next order arrives.

    My family simple adores HelloFresh meals and I honestly can't believe how much time it saves me throughout the week. From meal planning all the way to grocery shopping. The service provides us with ease and convenience we never thought possible, and the meals are always delicious with plenty of variety every week.

    I am recently retired and I finally have more than enough time to learn more about cooking and fine dining. Hello fresh really allowed me to focus on the fun parts without having to go to the store and experiment with dishes I know nothing about. It's like having your own cooking coach 24/7 that inspires you to use food combinations you never thought will work together. I mean vinegar and fresh ginger, I would never mix them on my own, not in a million years.
