Hello Fresh for Quarterly Subscription Box Review – #FSH01
I love the weekly healthy meal subscription Hello Fresh, so when I found out Hello Fresh was doing a Quarterly box subscription as well, I decided to try it out. (If you want to try the weekly Hello Fresh meal subscription, use coupon code ADDICTIONOVEMBER to save $20 off your first box!)
The Subscription Box: Hello Fresh for Quarterly
The Cost: $100 a quarter.
The Products: HelloFresh.com sends users every pre-measured ingredient to cook award-winning recipes. For Quarterly, they mail their favorite cooking, kitchen and lifestyle products.
Ships to: Everywhere! Shipping is free to the US. (Canada +$30; rest of world +$40)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items in the box and why they selected them. This quarter’s box included items selected by Hamish Shepard of Hello Fresh, and the theme was items that elevate your cooking experience.
Quirky Mercado Bag – Value $24.99
I don’t go to the farmer’s market enough to justify keeping this bag – but I have someone on my holiday gift list that will love this bag!
Marianne’s Porcini Spices – Value $9
Nudo Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Value $12
I’m so excited to try both of these items – this olive oil is supposed to be amazing for drizzling and dipping bread!
Colori Paring Knives – Value $17.95
I can always use new knives, and these get great reviews!
Rinse & Chop Cutting Board – Value $15
I normally don’t get excited about cutting boards, but this is the smartest design ever. The board snaps into a colander so you can rinse your vegetables before your chop them! And it’s BPA-free and dishwasher safe – I’m surprised this item retails for only $15!
afire Northern White Cedar Mini Grilling Planks – Value $12.99
Jonathan’s Wild Cherry Spoons Spatula – Value $16
In the letter from Hello Fresh, they recommend braving the cold to use these planks on your grill. Nope! These will go to use in the Summer of 2014! It’s already too cold for my liking!
Verdict: I paid $100 for this box and it had a value of $108. Since it’s such an expensive box I was expecting the value to be higher. (Quarterly made no promises of any value – that’s just what I was personally hoping for!) All the products are great, and they will definitely help make cooking easier or more delicious – so I’m very happy with the curation of the box. I just wish there was one more item!
It’s a pricey box, so I may cancel this subscription for now and try out a different Quarterly box. What do you think of the first Hello Fresh for Quarterly box?
