A question we get asked all the time is which one is better Gousto or HelloFresh? And this is really difficult to answer as each has their own benefits and ultimately it’s down to personal preference but here we will give you our run down on what we think of them both 🙂
You can order boxes up until lunchtime on a Saturday for delivery on Tuesday (That’s our choice of delivery day you can choose other days) so you can change your mind up until quite soon before the box will be delivered
There are around 50 choices each week including Vegetarian, Speedy, Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free and even recipes provided by Joe Wicks for the Lean in 15 section.
They do a handy little folder (that is free!) to keep all your recipe cards in
You’ll also get £15 for every friend you recommend who orders a box 😊
One of the downsides is it only comes in boxes for 2 or 4 people (not great when there are 3 of you!) It also isn’t delivered all bagged up the same as HF – the smaller dry ingredients are bagged but all the fresh products are loose meaning if you have a husband like mine, who doesn’t understand the recipe cards, they will use stuff they shouldn’t
With HF you have to make your choices 6 days before your box is delivered. We sometimes didn’t decide we wanted a box for the following week until after it was too late to order so went with Gousto instead.
HF have 31 recipe choices each week including Vegetarian, Low Calorie, Premium and Quick & easy meals.
The recipe cards are A4 and I haven’t come across a folder to keep them in from HF so we keep them in an A4 clear wallet folder.
HF offer you £20 for each friend you recommend who orders a box. They also give you Free boxes once you have ordered a certain amount of weeks yourself, to send to friends but you don’t earn a referral commission on these.
We found one of the benefits are you can order HF for 2,3 or 4 people. Which is one of the biggest differences between the 2 boxes.
Although we love them both, we do tend to order Gousto over Hellofresh mainly down to the additional choice and the time limit on ordering for the following week
Price wise they are exactly the same for 2 people / 4 meals at £34.99 a week excluding any upgrades or add ons
Let me know if you order either and what you think of them!
