A Love Affair with Recipe Boxes: Why Do I Need a Food Kit?

Over the last few years, the demand for recipe boxes and food service subscriptions has gone through the roof! From healthy meals delivered right to your door to conveniently packaged, nutritional snack boxes and even our own Mon Dessert mini-kit subscription service, there is no denying the popularity of these food kits. But why are they so great?

In a world built around a desire for convenience, with every product or service just one click of a button away, busy individuals are understandably enthused about these cleverly designed packages. Food subscription services and ready made kits offer consumers the ultimate convenience. Not only can they be delivered directly to your house at a time best suited for you, but you can also order them whenever and wherever you like. When people lead busy lives, they tend to get stuck in a rut when it comes to cooking and these wonderful services solve that issue while also helping customers rediscover the importance of home cooking.

Being health-conscious is a key factor to consider here too. Nutrition is a high priority for many people now and it’s not always easy to eat well on the run or when you are swamped with things to do. Most would opt for a fast food option, ready in a few short minutes and over a healthy, organic, freshly prepared meal requiring expensive ingredients. I, myself, am guilty of this and in these cases, meal kits can be a real lifesaver!

In addition to all of the above, companies like Graze, Gousto and Hello Fresh prepare and package these recipe boxes in such style, a real treat to receive in the post. As someone who still gets excited when there’s a parcel with my name on it in the letterbox, these kits bring me a little bit of happiness every time I receive one! Our Mon Dessert macaron making kits are another example of these fabulously fun and deliciously delectable recipe boxes and for this reason, make great gifts!

With more and more people jumping aboard the food photos bandwagon, taking the perfect Instagram pic of your favourite meals has become a daily ritual for many. Again, this is something I am guilty of; I follow an inordinate number of food Instagram pages and culinary blogs! I even have a whole folder on my phone dedicated to my own beautiful food creations. Being a busy bee means coming up with new and exciting recipes and executing fancy presentation can often go out the window, as eating takes priority. Meal kits allow people to create something impressive and tasty to share with friends, family and if you wish, your social media following! The Mon Dessert kits, for example, include a reusable silicone baking mat which help create perfect, uniform macaron shells, every time! It is this kind of attention to detail that helps us execute deliciously eye catching treats that are pleasing to both the eye and the mouth! After all, a mouth-watering Instagram post might just be the food inspo you were looking for...

So, if you are yet to discover the joys of recipe boxes and food subscription services, why not give them a go? We have a sneaking suspicion you won’t regret it!
