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.

Meal #1: Chicken Shawarma with Rice and Vegetables


Our first meal was chicken shawarma. Another recent change with Meal Time Box is that they now package the entree separately from the sides. I think that makes it a little nicer as you can mix and match the sides to the entree you like. We received two of each meal and side. For all of these, I put them in the refrigerator and let them thaw, then cut one end open and microwave for two to four minutes.


Here’s how the chicken shawarma looked prepared. Since we’ve been subscribing to Meal Time Box, we have a “frozen dinner night” once a month and everyone gets to try something. This was my nine-year-old’s choice. He actually liked it okay, which is miraculous, since he likes nothing.

Meal #2: Guinness Stew


This is the frozen Guinness stew. My husband was actually craving stew this night, so this was his choice.


Here it is prepared. It was a hit! My husband really liked it.

Meal #3: Miso Chicken with Rice and Vegetables


This is the frozen miso chicken.


This was my ten-year-old’s choice for the month, and he thought it was delicious. I took a little bite, too, and I have to agree!

Meal #4: Pork and Pineapple Stirfry


This is the frozen pork and pineapple stir fry.


This was my choice this month, and I thought it was completely delicious. This is one of the best meals I have had from Meal Time Box!

Meal #5: Salisbury Steak with Potatoes and Broccoli


This is the frozen Salisbury steak.


My husband ate this on a separate occasion. He said it was really good for Salisbury steak. I guess that’s not one of his usual favorites, but he liked this version.


Meal Time Box always sends the most amazing desserts from ABV Sweets! They are so indulgent! We got these turtle brownies this month, and they tasted amazing. I hate to say it, but the desserts they send are my favorite part of the whole box!

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 understand that they don’t always look super appealing, but I really like that there aren’t a bunch of added preservatives, colors, artificial flavors, sugar, etc. They are also very convenient, so if you eat frozen meals they are definitely worth checking out.

  1. I would get this if they shipped to TX. I don’t think the food looks bad at all. It’s so much better than any frozen foods you can get in the grocery store.

  2. $100 for a family of 5 for frozen meals? That seems a little absurd. A friend of mine used to sell sous-vide meals that were AMAZING for around $15 for 2 people. Granted they were out of a brick and mortar store and not online (so no packaging/shipping). If you’re going to spend $20 per person, you might as well get takeout.

  3. Whoa…These meals taste AWESOME, are way better for you and taste a millions times better than any store bought frozen meal. They provide a great way to have a good dinner made by a chef w/ fresh ingredients in a flash. And for way less money and time making it myself, take out or dining out. I get 10 meals every 2 weeks, or so as needed, and average 7-9 dollars per meal depending on whether or not I get sides. If I don’t get sides I make my own. It is perfect for busy families and super perfect for 1-2 person households. Looks can be deceiving. Give it a try. They have a trial box. I tried it almost a year solely based on MSA’s review and never looked back. Trust MSA. They know what they are talking about!

    • It doesn’t change the fact that this review told us absolutely nothing about the items. Saying they tasted good is like saying a lipstick was nice. To review something you need specifics how was it prepared how long did it take what was the flavor is like. The review need three more detailed. And truthfully the food looks gross

  4. Yuck

  5. That Salisbury steak dish looks horrendous!

  6. I totally agree. It all looks very unappetizing.

  7. I don’t think that any of that looks appetizing at all.
