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.

Pulled Pork with Collard Greens and Mashed Sweet Potatoes


Our first meal with pulled pork with sweet potatoes and collar greens. We received two of each meal. For all of these, I put them in the refrigerator and let them thaw, then cut one end open and microwave for four minutes.


Here’s how it looked prepared. The boys each had one of these and they completely tore it up! It must have been really delicious!

Bacon Fried Rice


This is the frozen Bacon Fried Rice.


Here it is prepared. This was actually my favorite meal in the box in terms of flavor. It tasted fantastic! It was a little dry, though.

Jerk Chicken with Coconut Rice and Kidney Beans


This is the frozen jerk chicken.


I tried the jerk chicken and it was pretty tasty. The chicken was nice and juicy, but wow, the seasoning was on really thick! The beans and rice were great.

Roast Chicken with Carrots and Potatoes


This is the frozen roast chicken.


My husband had the roast chicken and he thought it was really juicy and yummy.

Chicken Shawarma with Cucumbers, Tomatoes and White Rice


This is the frozen chicken shawarma.


My husband tried this dish also, and he thought it was pretty tasty! The only thing he didn’t like was the cucumbers, but I think he mainly just thought it was weird to have microwaved cucumbers.


In addition to all our meals, our box always comes with a bonus dessert. This month we got two Mexican Chocolate Brownies from ARV Sweets. I have to admit that I did have a bite, and they tasted amazing! I love spicy chocolate so much, I just couldn’t resist!

Verdict: Meal 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. I love this idea…but in the pictures, it looks like everything is jammed into one bag. Like the first pic of the pulled pork, sweet potatoes, and collared greens, the potatoes and greens look like they are all up in each other’s business. Is that the case? Because collared greens have a pretty strong flavor and they are usually juicy. I wouldn’t want that in my sweet potatoes–at all. My food does not need to comingle LOL.

    I’m in Mississipi so it’s a moot point with their current shipping, but if they ever expand, it would be good to know.

  2. My total favorite meals are the Roast Chicken and the Chicken Shwarma. I get extras of these, (yes, you can customize it this way), so I can switch it up with my favorite beef meals like the Roast Beef and Baked Penne w/ Meat. Plus they always have new meals to try which I always do which is how I found my favorites like the Chicken Schwarma which I never heard of.

  3. This would be great for my husbands lunches but unfortunately no delivery to MS ?

    • Yeah, I am disappointed too. It would be great for busy nights around here. And hi to a fellow Mississippian 🙂

  4. I like this idea as a subscription but I like it even more as a gift idea for new parents or those who are having health issues or are home bound. I know I have friends who are far enough away that I can’t bring them a meal and I would love to, and this would be a perfect solution for that.

    • OMG that is a brilliant idea, Sue! How kind of you!

      • Great idea!

  5. I would like to try this service, but I’m having a hard time with the look of the meat items and the packaging.

    • Hi Bonny! I know what you mean about the look of the meat, but it tastes good. I usually think frozen meat doesn’t look too good anyway. The packaging is “FDA-approved, BPA-free, microwave safe pouches,” so I guess it just depends on whether you consider that good enough or not. I will say that I (now) definitely let the food thaw first so I don’t have plastic in the microwave any longer than absolutely necessary, and they do heat up nicely in 4 minutes or less. I hope that helps!

      • I have been getting MTB for 3 months now totally based on the first MSA review and I LOVE it! The packaging is different than what we are used to in a store bought frozen meal (and looked different to me at first too). Perhaps the reason the meat looks different to you, (and did to me at first), is because the meat in a store bought frozen meal is over processed, full of preservatives and not real chef/home cooked meat. The components of each meal come out separated and each has it its own texture and flavor…Lot’s of flavor! The meats and the meal as a whole are super tasty, SOO easy to prepare and SOO much healthier than a store bought frozen meal because they cook REAL food like you would at home. No more buying multiple ingredients for one meal that may not get used again, no prep and lots of choices. Plus there are lots of meal plan choices. I too, like Anna, defrost in the fridge overnight, cut a slit, cook for 2 minutes, let it rest, then give it another 1-2 depending on the density of the meal. Like I wrote above, I gave it a try after only one MSA review because I consider MSA the Holy Grail of sub box reviews and am never disappointed with their advice and reviews. I am totally hooked on MealTime Box thanks to Anna and MSA! Give it a try with their 5 meal box. That’s what I did before subscribing. Also they offer discount codes when you go to their website.

        • Thanks Tilllia!

  6. Does it come with an ingredient list? Just curious how you know that there are no additives, etc – I can’t seem to find any info online. The 5 meal box is listed as $60 for me. I’d be interested in trying it though without an ingredient list, it’s hard for me to judge the quality of the products.

    • Hi Lara! Good catch on the price change, thank you! I will have that updated asap. The ingredients can be found here: . It looks pretty wholesome to me for frozen food!

      • Yes, the ingredients are listed on their website. But all you really need to do to see that these meals are wholesome, home/chef cooked, not processed foods full of who knows what is to cook and eat one. All doubt will be removed.
