HelloFresh

HelloFresh has a choice of 2 handy Thanksgiving boxes for you this year, both deliverable for cooking up the contents in your own home. 

The Thanksgiving Box comes with a whole turkey, 4 sides, dessert, and a recipe booklet, with enough to feed 8-10 guests.

If you've already got your main dish, go with the Sides & Dessert Box, which features the pre-portioned ingredients to make 4 luscious sides and a dessert. Serves 8-10 guests. 

Sides include choices like:

  • Garlic mashed potatoes
  • Ciabatta stuffing
  • Green beans and caramelized shallots
  • Cranberry sauce with orange, ginger, and cinnamon
  • Classic gravy with garlic and herbs
  • Apple ginger crisp with cinnamon pecan crumble

Price: The Thanksgiving Box starts at $14.90 per serving while the Sides & Dessert Box start at $8.90 per serving. You can also get up to 60% off with one of these HelloFresh promo codes.

Pros:

  • Breaks recipes into a four hour plan, assisting newbie chefs with helpful visual aids and detailed instructions to help them get everything on the table in time, together
  • Traditional Thanksgiving fare with a few twists to keep things fresh and unique
  • Keep in mind you can also order wine delivered (with proper ID) from HelloFresh with a 6-month subscription

Cons:

  • Some found the desserts a bit too sweet

Bottom line:

HelloFresh offers a delicious, high quality option, with all the fixin's and plenty of instruction. HelloFresh Thanksgiving kits still may overwhelm a total newbie on their very first Thanksgiving, though — better if you have a team to help you if you're a novice.

  • The 4-6 serving size equates to a 10-12 pound turkey and one 10 inch pumpkin pie
  • The 8-10 serving size = a 14-16 pound turkey and same size pie as above
  • The 12-14 serving size = a 18-20 pound turkey and same size pie as above

Note: We really wanted to include the Chef'd Thanksgiving dinner meal kit as well, as it's been a hit in recent years. But they recently shut down over the summer, and haven't been seen back in business since.  

And although we called Blue Apron to find out if they had any special Thanksgiving dinner delivery feasts on offer this season and they sadly reported they did not, we did find a smaller meal kit you can try here — with only two pieces off the turkey, not the whole thing, sides, and dessert, designed to serve only 4.
