HELLO FRESH

HelloFresh belongs to the meal delivery category that is best suited for people who enjoy cooking. Each shipment includes step-by-step instructions for taking the farm-fresh ingredients in the box and turning them into a delicious, healthy meal: no grocery shopping required.

When creating your meal delivery program, you'll first need to select from HelloFresh's 3 plans: Classic, Veggie, and Family. The Classic plan has the widest variety of recipes to choose from, the Veggie focuses on - you guessed it - meat-free meals, and the Family plan features recipes designed to keep picky younger eaters at the table.

Next, you need to decide the size of your HelloFresh delivery and how often you'd like to cook: options include serving sizes of 2 or 4 people, and number of meals ranges from 2-4 per week. HelloFresh's dietitians and chefs create 15 new recipes each week; depending on the plan you choose, you can select which ones are included with your delivery, or you can just let HelloFresh decide based on your indicated food preferences. This is a big improvement over previous versions of this meal delivery service, which didn't allow customers to have any way of selecting specific recipes for their weekly meals.

HelloFresh's prices are comparable with other meal delivery businesses, with an average price per serving of less than $10.

As with most meal delivery services, HelloFresh lets you put your shipments on hold whenever you like, so there's no worry that you'll have a box of rotting food on your doorstep when you get home from vacation. There's also no long-term commitments, so you can cancel the service at any time.

While HelloFresh doesn't have a clearly-stated satisfaction guarantee, we saw a number of places on the site that offered to help if anything wasn't right - and, better, yet, numerous customer compliments that said that HelloFresh representatives were very quick to replace or issue credits for any shipments that were damaged or had ingredients that were less-than-edible for any reason.

The meals included in HelloFresh's plans seem to be exactly what you'd hope for: healthy, flavorful, and easy to prepare. Most customers are pleased with the serving sizes, even to the point of having leftovers when they didn't expect them, and overall people like the recipes they receive.

If you like the idea of adding variety to your menu and don't mind spending a half-hour in the kitchen, HelloFresh can easily deliver the ingredients and recipes to your doorstep.

DIET TO GO

Diet-to-Go wants to help you lose weight while still enjoying your food. All of their ready-to-eat meals are created by a team of chefs and dietitians "to make losing weight taste great". As a part of their meal delivery service, you get complimentary access to a team of health professionals, such as a Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian, and a Certified Health Coach who can help you meet your goals. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in the Diet-to-Go community, which offers resources and programs to keep you inspired and motivated on your weight loss journey.

You may be surprised at how tasty your delivered meals are: Diet-to-Go actually earned a first-place rating for taste from Epicurious, beating out several other well-known names in the weight-loss food industry. The service offers four main meal plans, with recipes typically served in a five-week rotation. Some meals that got high marks from customers are the Eggplant Parmesan, Blackened Salmon, and Chicken Marsala. Diet-to-Go does allow you to swap out meals in your delivery if there's something you don't like.

You'll need to go through all of Diet-to-Go's plan options in order to determine your weekly pricing:

  • Menu Style: Balance (no red meat or pork), Balance-D (focused on those with Type 2 Diabetes), Keto-Carb30 (carb-restricted), or Vegetarian?
  • Original or No Seafood?
  • 5 or 7 days per week?
  • 2 or 3 meals per day? (2-meal plans do not include breakfast)
  • Women's (1200 calories per day) or Men's (1600 calories per day)? - only required for the Balance menu style.

The lowest priced plan we could find was the Balance 2 meals per day, 5 days per week plan for women (or anyone else who wants a 1200 calorie per day limit): $122 per week, plus $19.98 for shipping. If you happen to live in the areas of Washington DC (including suburban Maryland and northern Virginia), Baltimore, New Jersey, or the greater Los Angeles Area, you can opt to pick up your orders and eliminate the shipping costs.

You'll want to refrigerate or freeze your meals after delivery, since they are flash-frozen, packed on dry ice, and shipped in large styrofoam coolers. Any items that don't need to be refrigerated will be in a box that is shipped along with the cooler. All of the meals in your delivery have a shelf life of 7 days in the fridge; you can safely freeze them for up to 30 days after that, or when you receive them - your choice.

If you think that Diet-to-Go might be the plan, you might be able to save money by looking for a pop-up offer. We were given a discount of 15% by subscribing to their email newsletter.

You'll find the same commitment to customer satisfaction at Diet-to-Go that you'd see with our highest-ranked meal delivery services: place your plan on hold anytime you like, cancel whenever you want, and get a replacement, credit, or refund if you're unhappy with your order or their service for any reason. We were glad to see so many customers praising the reps at Diet-to-Go for quick responses to any issues that arose. People have great things to say about the quality of the food also; even though they're microwave-reheated, the meals retain their flavor and don't tend to get watery after being warmed up.

Diet-to-Go isn't going to be the first choice of people who want to get a box of ingredients and recipes that they can make at home, or who aren't looking for a calorie-restricted meal plan. On the other hand, for those who want to lose weight and not feel like they're starving because they're eating appetizing, filling, healthy meals, this meal delivery service won't disappoint.

Best Meal Delivery

To help you find the Best Meal Delivery, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Hello Fresh and Diet To Go.

Who is the best Meal Delivery company? Are you looking for a way to simplify dinner after a long day at work? Using a meal delivery service has become an easy way of getting nourishing, flavorful food on the table without the hassle of grocery shopping.

Of course, the most popular reason for using a meal delivery company is the convenience. Customers love being able to order their favorite entrees, side dishes, or even appetizers and desserts, and to choose how much cooking they'd like to do. Some meal delivery services are reheat-and-eat, while others provide you with all of the ingredients you need to create a restaurant-quality meal in your own kitchen.

As these services have grown in popularity, the types of meals and plans has expanded as well. Has your doctor recently put you on a special diet, and you're not sure how to incorporate it into your lifestyle? Whether you're adapting to a diet that's low in carbs, diabetic-friendly, or even gluten-free, you'll find a meal delivery program that can help.

Are you interested in becoming a vegetarian but unfamiliar with how to create a balanced meal? Once again, there's a meal delivery service for that - use it for a few weeks to get ideas of lunches and dinners that you can recreate, or for as long as you like as you adapt to your clean, green way of eating.

As you consider which meal delivery service is best for you, you'll quickly see that they vary greatly when it comes to price, preparation, and types of food offered. Keep these criteria in mind as you decide which company fits your needs:

  • Reputation. What do past and current customers have to say about the meals they received and the overall experience, from ordering to delivery?
  • Cost. What will you spend for the meal delivery plan you choose, whether you opt for a la carte entrees or regularly-scheduled weekly or monthly shipments?
  • Variety. Does the meal delivery provider have an appetizing range of flavors and cuisines to choose from? Will you be able to select meals that you'll actually want to eat?
  • Satisfaction Guarantee. If you're unhappy with the service, the quality of the food, or the condition of the meals at the time of delivery, can you get a refund or a replacement?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best meal delivery services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the service that puts the food that you're craving on the table right away!
