Value

In terms of value, both HelloFresh and Goodfood cost the same amount per serving so if you’re hoping to save money then you’ll have to look at shipping costs. HelloFresh charges a minimal shipping fee of $9.99 per box while Goodfood’s shipping is free!

Veriety

Both of these meal kits offer variety in different ways. HelloFresh has a whopping 25 recipes to choose from each week (some of these recipes have an additional cost), and Goodfood offers up to 26. Of these 26 recipes however, only nine of them cost $11.49 per serving and the rest range anywhere from $13.53 to $28.48 (for the L’artisan options).

In terms of recipe variety, we found that HelloFresh offered an elevated twist of mostly American fare in addition to a few internationally-inspired dishes. Goodfood offers a much wider internationally inspired menu and incorporates many East and South Asian ingredients into its recipes. 

Ingredients

Both meal kit services offer incredibly fresh ingredients, but while all of the ingredients we used from the HelloFresh box were familiar, some of the ingredients from our Goodfood boxes we had never used or heard of before (why have we never heard of finger limes? They’re amazing!) There are pros and cons to each of these factors. Having familiar ingredients meant that cooking the recipes was easy and uncomplicated. Having new-to-us ingredients make cooking a little more difficult, but also exciting. If you’re looking for a familiar, uncomplicated and delicious cooking experience, we definitely recommend HelloFresh. If you’re looking to challenge yourself in the kitchen and try something deliciously new, then we recommend Goodfood.  We also want to note that if you’re a pasta fan, Goodfood featured fresh pasta ingredients and HelloFresh offered dry.

Dietary Needs

While neither of these meal-kit delivery services offer menus specifically for gluten or dairy-free diets, they both offer several options for those who have these dietary needs. HelloFresh offers a few recipes that can easily omit dairy or gluten in their ingredients. Goodfood has more variety as they include dairy and gluten free menu options without the need to make modifications. 

Skip a Week or Cancel Subscription

Both HelloFresh and Goodfood are subscription-based offers which means that once you sign up for a box, the order will auto-renew and continue to send you weekly boxes on your specified weekday unless you manually make changes to your account. Changes to skip a week or cancel your subscription can be easily done with each company. For HelloFresh you can simply skip a week by clicking a button on your dashboard or cancel your subscription by selecting that option in your settings menu. 

Skipping a week works the same way for Goodfood, but to cancel your subscription you must either call, or chat with one of the Goodfood support team through the messenger service on their website. Instead of cancelling, they will opt to have you take an extended break for several months. If you choose to take the break, Goodfood will notify you when your subscription is due to start again and ask if you would like to extend your break or start receiving boxes.  If you would prefer to just cancel your subscription entirely, the support team will help close your account.

Goodfood VS HelloFresh - The Bottom Line

In the end, we want you to choose the box that is going to best suit your needs and lifestyle. Both of these services offer amazing variety and delicious recipes so it’s pretty hard to compare apples to apples. Our recommendation, if you’re looking for tasty and healthier alternatives or special dietary needs, Goodfood is the perfect option. If you’re looking to elevate your family meals with tasty recipes and save time on the whole dinner process in general, HelloFresh will be a great match.
