I’m doing a bit of a review of potential veg boxes delivery company, as I want to get the best supplier. I also think writing about it will help others as well as achieving BC purpose!. I’m quite aware that some of these schemes potentially are premium priced, so I also wanted to check whether they’re competitive to convince my wife .
When searching through the options Milk and More is good as it’s reasonably priced, organic and also provides milk. Here are some photos of the goods and what I thought.
1. What I ordered
- Milk & More Organic Whole Milk in Glass, 568ml, 1pt- £0.95
- Milk & More Organic Semi Skimmed Milk in Glass, 568ml, 1pt 1 £0.95
- Premium Organic Veg Box 1 £16.50
- Organic Apples, 6 pack 1£3.50
- Organic Clementines, 600G 1 £2.75
- Organic Cherry Vine Tomatoes, 225g 1 £2.75
- Organic Bananas, 800g 1 £2.00
- Free Welcome Gift! The Village Press Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice 1 £0.00
The service was great. I got to pick a date for delivery and it arrived on my front doorstep on the day outlined.
The only packaging used was biodegradable which is amazing - why can’t everyone do this!
3. Value for money
It’s worthwhile comparing with another premium high street brand so I chose Waitrose. I paid £16.50 but it would be £15 if I ordered it regularly. It would cost £15.92 from Waitrose, so really not bad.
What you learn here is that Milk is a lot more expensive so if you’re like us and have small children, this is a tough pill to swallow. However, on all the other items Milk and More stands up to the price text.
|Quantity||Waitrose Cost||Milk and More|
|Organic Milk||1 pt||£0.65||0.95|
|Organic Cherry Tomatoes||225||£2.81||2.75|
|Freshly Squeezed Organge Juice||500ml||£1.38||0|
4. Overall Recommendation
Highly recommend MIlk and More! I was a bit stuck with some of the ingredients but made an amazing roast carrot and fennel soup for the first time in my life, which was quite amazing
I’m going to order from another supplier now and will let you know what I find.
If you are using a service it would be great if you could let us know what your experiences have been!
