Gousto Box


Recently Jon and I tried something a little different to jazz up our evening meals. We trialed the Gousto box! I love to cook but at times I find myself cooking the same thing week in week out. For new customers you can get 50% off of your first order, bargain right?! The offer is in red at the top of the page so you can’t miss it.

Why order from Gousto? Well, first of all, convenience. It drops a box of foodies at your door with the right amount of herbs, veg and meat needed for a dish. I loved the card which displayed the expiry dates for each dish so you could plan the week with that in mind.  Next reason, the produce is organic and a lot has been sourced in the UK. Lets reduce those pesky air miles where possible guys! Lastly, it is a good healthy balanced meal.  Even after a long day at work it’s good to know everything is in the fridge ready to go when you get in. Plus all of my recipes were delicious!

The delivery is spot on too! We selected a Monday with a delivery between 8am-7pm which is a bit different to your typical Ocado delivery window you must be in for.  The delivery is left at the door! But what about my chicken getting warm? They have that covered at Gousto. The box is packed perfectly with little bags of ice to keep things chilled and then wrapped in a wool insulating bag.  Mine had been at the door for around 6 hours and the ice was still frozen when I unpacked it.

Have a look at my pics below of my Gousto experience.
