Review: Home Chef Express at Kroger
This post is sponsored by Kroger, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
If you’ve been following along for a while you know that my boyfriend and I became huge fans of Kroger’s Prep+Pared Meal Kits. These kits were like the ones you order online that come with everything you need to make a gourmet meal at home, except you could buy them right as you walked into your Kroger store. It was extremely convenient for us, not to mention we were able to make restaurant quality at home for under $20.
Unfortunately, Kroger has decided to discontinue their Prep+Pared Meal Kits – you have no ideas how heartbroken I was when I found this out. However, they did replace them with Home Chef Express Meal Kits. Home Chef has been doing meal kits better than anyone else in the business, and Kroger decided to partner with them and offer better than ever kits. I was invited to attend the launch event of the Home Chef Express Kits and try them out. My boyfriend was just getting back in town and was unable to go with me so I took my mum instead to give the new meals a try. For those of you that do not know my mum, she eats like a bird and is incredibly picky – thankfully they had a kit that she was actually willing to try which was the Chicken Fajitas with cheese and sour cream. This kit said it would be ready in 15 minutes, serves two and had a price point of $16.99. We began our cooking, and in fact it did take us 15 minutes to complete the meal, and it was absolutely delicious – even my ridiculously picky mother enjoyed it and said she would be buying kits…yay! The one thing that these kits do not have is a little something on the side, with the fajitas I would of liked to have some rice to go with it. So you’d have to buy a side dish to go with it, since most people will want a little something with their main course.
