I am quite disappointed! My first box was a day late with no notice. Messed me up. The meals were not very tasty. I found the Mozzarella chicken bland sides and boring meal. The Shrimp citrus was difficult to understand meal prep and it wasn’t good. Boring with 2 basic spices. I did enjoy the balsamic chicken. It actually was a recipe to cook and make. I can cut a potato and bake in oven without you help. Your meals are supposed to be better quality and skills needed! The packaging has improved.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Jane! This is Jordan here, our community team lead at HelloFresh. We’re so sorry about the mixup with delivery. If you haven’t already, please get in touch with us at hello@hellofresh.com or 1-800-733-2414 so that we can make it right. We’ll pass your other feedback along to the culinary team.

Just started hellofresh. We love it. But we need dessert.

Jacqueline says:

Gary – so happy to hear! We’re constantly looking to improve and will most definitely pass along that suggestion (trust us, we LOVE dessert too)

Gina Phillips says:

where does the mexican beer come in?

Jacqueline says:

Step 6! When you add crumbled bacon to the pot with pureed chiles, chipotle, dry spices, stock, and coffee (if using), add beer too. If you end up making Nick’s famous Texas chili recipe, let us know how it turns out!! #HelloFreshPics

Suzanne says:

I can only eat gluten-free. If I sign on, will I be able to get only gluten-free meal selections?

Jordan Schultz says:

While we don’t offer a Gluten Free plan, we do try to include 2-3 Gluten Free meals per week. All of GF recipes are clearly marked as such, and you’ll have access to this information as well as the full recipe itself even before checkout. Otherwise, substituting and omitting is super easy, as everything is packaged and labeled separately. You’ll also see a full ingredients list and nutritional breakdown for each recipe on our website before you choose your meals.

If you have further questions about how HelloFresh can work for your dietary needs, please feel free to reach out to our Dietitian/Nutritionist at nutrition@hellofresh.com!

Cindy says:

I just started this week with Hello Fresh referred to me from a good friend who is equally delighted with the concept and recipes! I’m only 2 days into my 3-dinner/week program and my husband and I have used this to kick-start our weight loss plan. We’ve always eaten relatively healthfully, but portions were always an issue. This way, we still get to eat healthy fresh food but our portions are controlled and we are fully quicker and for a longer period due to the nutrient dense foods in the boxes! Great idea Jamie! Can’t wait to see our progress along with the next meal!

Genna says:

Hi Cindy! So happy you’re loving it, best of luck!

Hope says:

Oh boy! I’ve been craving banana bread since going gluten free two years ago. Looks like this recipe with cure that craving. Can’t wait to make it. Thanks.

Jacqueline says:

Hi Hope! If you do end up making it, take a photo to show us! Tag #HelloFreshPics and we’ll be sure to check it out. Happy baking!

Chris says:

What is the calorie count, protein etc for this recipe?

Jacqueline says:

Chris, this recipe has 130 calories, 4g protein, 3g fiber, 75mg sodium, and 9g fat per serving.

Sherri Roper says:

I would like to try some of the gluten free recipes, but I am running into a problem with other allergens. This recipe for the gf banana bread calls for coconut oil and coconut flour, which I am allergic to coconut. Is there something I can substitute to be able to make this bread? I struggle since gluten was discovered to be a major migraine trigger for me, but I am also allergic to pretty much all tree nuts and coconut. Its difficult since so much of the gluten free products use coconut or almond flour. I will take any suggestions you can make. Thank you!

Jacqueline says:

Hi Sherri,

Hmmm, that’s a tough one. But we have other gluten free recipes without coconut or tree nuts! Check out our gluten-free pumpkin cupcakes, Brazilian tapioca pancakes, or these baked veggie fries!

Kellie says:

Hi Jacqueline,

Can the chocolate nibs be substituted for cacoa powder (or anything else?)

Jacqueline says:

Kellie – sure! If you’re not a fan of unsweetened cacao nibs, try dark chocolate chips or walnuts for an extra crunch. 1/4 cup cocoa powder would work, too. Although it won’t have that same bite, it’ll let a uniform chocolaty flavor to the recipe. And let’s be honest, chocolate makes everything better 🙂
