This is the information sheet that came with my family’s package. We let the chef choose our meals, and this is a list of what we received. It also has instructions on how to prepare the meals.



The meals arrive in an insulated container as seen above, with plenty of ice packs inside to keep them cool. By the time I pull them out of the box they are no longer frozen solid, of course, but so far they have been just fine. The top picture shows the chicken broccoli casserole and beef stroganoff packets, and the bottom picture shows the chicken roulade, steak and onions, and adobo pork packets. We received two of each meal.


My older son chose the steak and onions this time. He really liked it! Hooray! It is so hard to get these kids to eat. My husband also tried it. He liked it, but thought it was a little over-seasoned.


I really wanted to eat this for dinner, but my husband and little one claimed these. They both liked this a lot! I’m glad they did, because I tried a taste of my son’s and I thought it was a little bland. The bland vs. over-seasoned battle between my husband and I rages on…


I chose the pork adobo, and wow! It was really, really tender! I wish there had been more pork and less rice, though. The rice was also good, but there was a just a lot of it! The bok choy tasted like you would expect bok choy that’s been frozen and re-heated to taste. It didn’t have much flavor or texture.


My husband had the chicken broccoli casserole for lunch one day and he reported that it was “fine.” I think we still have one in the freezer, so I might try it myself.


I had the chicken roulade for lunch one day. It was pretty good, but the chicken was a little dry. This is pretty common with frozen meal chicken, I think.


In addition to all our meals, our box came with a bonus dessert for two, these raspberry blondies. This is twice in a row that Meal Time has caught me at a moment of weakness – I had to try one! It was worth it, too! This was the gooiest blondie I’ve ever had, and the white chocolate chips made the experience completely perfect.

VerdictMeal Time Box is a little more expensive than the frozen meals you typically find at the grocery store, but they taste much better and seem to be much healthier. Regardless of what the individual verdicts above on each meal may say, they are all much, much tastier than your average frozen meal fare. I really like that there aren’t a bunch of added preservatives, colors, artificial flavors, sugar, etc. They are also super convenient, so if you eat frozen meals they are definitely worth checking out.

  1. These meals actually look pretty good. I’d find it really helpful if some nutritional info. were included in this review – just the basics would be fine, like number of calories, amount of sodium, and number of grams of fat.

  2. I have been getting MTB every 2 weeks now since I first saw the MSA review which in my opinion is the Holy Grail for sub box reviews. I think I have had 4 boxes now and I love it! The meals are tasty, convenient and not full of the preservatives and chemicals found in frozen store meals. Plus they taste like real food because they are real food! I agree w/ you Anna, the desserts are so yummy too. For me, the price is comparable to the costs of buying multiple ingredients just to make a dish or eating out/take-out. FYI- I read on their FB page that they are having a pop-up restaurant event in NY on July 15. I don’t know where you live but I wish I lived closer so I could go.
