Well, it finally happened. We had to break up with Martha and Marley Spoon.
I know did a pro/con list when I did my review in September, but the food was really good, so we were willing to give them a fair shot. Now, here we are, 5 months later, and we are cancelling Marta and Marley Spoon.
I thought I would tell you why.
Problem #1: We kept getting bad meat. They would always credit our account, but it just kept happening. At least once every two weeks.
Problem #2: The customer service is so slow. We would wait a week or two sometimes for a reply from them. We would get a generic “due to high email volume” form email after two or three days, but still. The waiting.
Problem #3: We kept having to get the steak and potatoes to accommodate my food allergy. Also their Asian inspired cuisine wasn’t very good, so that also eliminated some food for us.
And there it is. The three reasons we are breaking up with Martha and Marley Spoon. We thought we would give Hello Fresh a shot this time. I’ll let you know how that goes.
Well, it looks like we are breaking up with Home Chef.
I know, I know. I waxed poetical about them back in March. But a lot can change in 6 months. And so, it seems, it has.
See, what had happen was they change distribution centers, at least for us. Our packages used to come from Georgia and now they come from California. And ever since then we have been having problems.
Specifically with the chicken. It keeps coming in bad. And when that’s the main ingredient in your Truffle Butter Chicken Breast, well, you can see where that could be a problem.
At first it was a box every month that the bad chicken would appear. Home chef would make it right with credits and we would go about our business. But then it started happening more frequently. This last time we got two in a row. I told the hubs I was done.
So now. Well now its time for a change.
We’ve decided to change to a new meal service. We happen to like meal services. They do the shopping for you, prep the recipes, and cost less than going out to eat. It’s a win win!
We are going to try Martha and Marley Spoon for a little while. If we stick with it, I’ll do a review on it for you in a couple of months.
Sometimes change is scary. But sometimes, change can be tasty!
