“Sometimes when I come home I’m struggling and I’m like, I don’t know what to make for dinner. It was always the same thing. That’s why HelloFresh works for us.”
Tre and Rich
“I’m not that skilled in the world of cooking. Not only do they [HelloFresh] give you the ingredients, tell you how to make it, but they portion everything out. It’s like a life hack.”
Ryan and Ramsey
“The first thing my Dylan says when he comes in from school is, ‘are you making HelloFresh tonight?’ It was simple, 30 minutes, I’m like yes, I’m in it for that. It’s changed my life.”
