Freebies, Deals & Prize June pt2

Lots of goodies in my mailbox & stuff I picked up the past 2 weeks. Check out my Facebook page to see what I have received to review since I don’t post them in these freebie posts 🙂

Hello Fresh Box

Free box of food $69 value – yes please. I was able to get a free Hello Fresh box. Check for recent posts to see what recipes I’m making. Use code HKSF73 to get $40 off your first box. It’s a food subscription box , you can do it weekly or skip weeks as you please. For the Classic box you can choose 3 of the 5 recipes. It is a great way to try &discover new dishes. So far I’ve made 2 of my dishes & I was surprised I liked the Chipotle seasoning on my chicken , something I probably wouldn’t have tried on my own. I also tried farro, I have heard of it but never had it..I like it. Sort of reminds me of barley. The best part is they send you what you need , already measured. So no food goes to waste. You save time not having to go to the grocery store…or buying a seasoning you might not use often. It’s definitely worth trying.
