Here are the best food subscription boxes to try out, including HelloFresh

Food subscription services are incredibly popular these days, can you guess why? Social distancing, of course! If you’ve been considering checking one out, we list our favorites, below.

Due to COVID-19, most of us are relying on delivery services to bring us groceries and meals. Quarantine and social distancing rules are in place, which doesn’t allow us to go shopping as we used to. Not to mention, if we do make a trip to a grocery store, chances are that our favorite foods (or supplies) are low in stock or not available at all.

So if food subscription services were popular before, they are almost an absolute necessity to some! Have you been thinking about joining one of these services? If so, here are some of our favorites we recommend you try.

Raw Spice Bar

Let’s begin with one for the already experienced cook! If you love spending time in the kitchen, here’s box to try out. Raw Spice Bar offers very unique spices you won’t find in stores. Take your cooking to the next level with one of these tasty spices! This box also makes a great gift for the cook in your life.

I’ve tried a few of these out and they truly do add just what your meal is missing! Check out the Poultry Seasoning the next time you’re cooking chicken for a new taste! The spice features sage, thyme, and rosemary. Best of all, it’s salt-free. These are worth it as all you need is a pinch!
