Morrisons Food Boxes – Including NEW British Food Box With Next Day Delivery

Morrisons have joined Asda in selling food boxes filled with the essentials for a weekly shop. The boxes have enough food to feed to 2 adults for a week and can be delivered the next day.

Morrisons-supermarket

If you’re in the unfortunate position of not being able to get to do your weekly shop then ordering online may be an option for you, or if you just cannot be bothered with the stress of the supermarket, then the food boxes are a good option.

Morrisons has launched various different boxes that cater to different needs and various diets, meaning you don’t need to leave your home if need be.

The food boxes have already been made up for you, saving the time of adding individual products to your basket, which can be time-consuming and saving you time in the process.

 

How do Morrisons Food Boxes work?

If you don’t have one already, you firstly need to create an account with Morrisons by entering your name, email address and password.

If you already have an account, simply just log in.

Once in your account, you can then choose a pre-made hamper of food and supplies of your choice.

There are two types of box available, either meat or vegetarian and you can purchase up to two boxes per order.

Next day delivery is available if you order before 3pm.

 

What boxes are available?

Morrisons offer many food boxes.

When the food boxes were first introduced there were just the two options, but now there are many to choose from. The different boxes available cater for various diets.

Because farmers are struggling with the current situation and have lost a lot of trade from the food service market, Morrisons has launched a new British food box filled with British produce.

This will help British farmers in what has been a tough period of the time.

These boxes are slightly more expensive than alternatives at other supermarkets, but you get 10kg of premium food for your money which would usually be heading out to restaurants.

Also, from the sale of each box, £1 is donated to the Prince’s Countryside Fund.

 

What’s in the British Food Box?

Morrisons Vegetarian Box

Morrisons-Veg-Box

Each box will contain different items, based on their current availability of products.

There will be a variety of products in each box.

Morrisons state that a typical vegetarian box will include:

  • Canned baked beans, soup and pasta sauce
  • Milk
  • Dairy products such as butter and cheese
  • Bread
  • Rice and pasta
  • Vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots and onions
  • Vegetarian proteins
  • Essential household items

Each box will feed two adults for one week.

So, if you’re a family of four, you’ll need to order two boxes for the week.

This box contains £30 worth of groceries and will be delivered to your door next day for £5.

 

Morrisons Meat BoxMorrisons-Meat-Box

Again, the boxes will have different products and contents will change depending on their availability.

Contents will be a bit like pot luck.

There will be enough food in each box to feed two adults for one week.

In a Morrisons Meat Box you will find:

  • Canned baked beans, soup and pasta sauce
  • Milk
  • Dairy products such as butter and cheese
  • Bread
  • Rice and pasta
  • Meat products, such as sausage, bacon and cooked meat
  • Vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots and onions
  • Fresh meat such as chicken or beef
  • Essential household items

Each box will feed two adults for one week.

So, if you’re a family of four, you’ll need to order two boxes for the week.

The boxes contain £30 worth of groceries and can be delivered safely to your door for £5.

 

Market Street Square Meals boxmorrisons-market-street-square-meals-box

This particular box comes with pre-made meals.

For £30 you get four different dishes, with eight meals in total, so it’s just a matter of heating them up.

This option is great for those who don’t have time/mobility/facilities or any other reasons to make a meal from scratch.

In the box, you get two adult meals that consist of:

  • Shepherd’s Pie – Minced British lamb slowly cooked in red wine for tenderness and flavour, topped with fluffy, cheesy mash (British lamb)
  • Sausage & Mash – Succulent Cumberland sausages with creamy mash and a sweet caramelised onion gravy (British pork)
  • Chicken & Tomato Pasta Bake – Tender chicken breast cooked in a rich tomato and basil passata, topped with a sprinkling of Parmesan (British chicken)
  • Cauliflower Mac ‘n’ Cheese – A mix of macaroni and cauliflower florets served with a smooth, creamy cheese sauce

 

Market Kitchen Meal Maker box

morrisons-market-street-square-meals-box

With these boxes, you get eight ready means that you simply need to heat up.

You will however need to make sure you have the extra supplies in the cupboard such as rice, pasta or potatoes, in order to complete the meal.

In the box, for £30, you get:

  • Chicken Tikka – Tender pieces of chicken in a tikka spiced sauce, seasoned with a hint of cumin and ginger (British chicken)
  • Keralan Style Vegetable Curry – Sweet potato, cauliflower and spinach blended with coconut and seasoned with a touch of cardamom
  • Chilli Beef – Rich, smoky chipotle beef with red kidney beans, seasoned with a blend of cumin and coriander (Produced for Morrisons from British beef)
  • Vegetable Chilli – A medley of sweet potato, chickpeas and kidney beans, cooked with a cumin, cinnamon and chilli spice blend

 

Other food boxes

Other food boxes that can be purchased from Morrisons include a Ramadan Food Box, an assorted fish food box, a gluten-free food box and a BBQ food box.

They have also introduced a larger family-sized box.

 

Are the boxes any good?

If you’re not able to get to the shops, and you’re not able to get a food delivery from a normal supermarket, these food boxes are great temporary solution.

By making a purchase of one these boxes it will work out more expensive than walking into Aldi and buying the same sort of items, but you’re paying for the convenience.

Also, the food is delivered in cool, insulated boxes to your door.

The meat and vegetarian boxes come with enough supplies to keep a couple of adults going for the week, so even though they do seem high in price, it’s option worth thinking about during these tough times.

Personally, I think the ready meal boxes are not good value for money. With this option you would get 16 meals, that’s not enough to feed a couple for three meals a day for week. Plus, you need to add more food to the second box.

I suppose, if there are no other options, then it’s a way to get food.

 

Allergens and ingredients

During this difficult time there is going to be a high demand for food boxes, so the contents of each box cannot be guaranteed. Because of this, Morrisons are not able to give allergen advice, the ingredients list or any other information online at this time.

But, when you receive your box, each product will be packaged and will show labels with all the relevant information.

So, before consuming your food, you will need to check to see if it’s suitable for you and your dietary needs.

If you’re interested in these, Asda do a food box available for delivery as well.

£2 Poundland Meal Deal – Absolute Bargain!

Poundland has launched its own budget meal deal to rival major supermarkets and other shops.

Poundland has launched an excellent meal deal at a bargain price of just £2! This is an absolute steal at the price.

What do you get with the £2 Poundland Mean Deal?

poundland-meal-deal

Unlike other meal deals, you will get four items for just £2!

You get to pick from a choice of a sandwich, crisps, chocolate bar, and a drink.

It’s never going to be healthy meal, but it’s a bargain and definitely great to grab on the go.

Below are the options available with the meal:

Sandwiches

  • BLT
  • Cheese and onion
  • Chicken and bacon
  • Chicken salad
  • Egg mayo
  • Ham and cheese
  • Tuna and sweetcorn
  • Egg and bacon
  • Chicken and stuffing

Is the deal worth it?

Overall, the £2 Poundland meal deal is a steal!

Compared to other meal deals out there, it’s a bargain.

However, you’re paying less for less.

The drinks on offer at Poundland are smaller than other places with meal deals, so that needs to be taken into account.

What also needs to be considered is that Poundland sells the sandwiches for £1 anyway. The drinks, crisps and chocolate can be purchased in a 3 for £1 deal as well. So, if you brought them separately it would work out at the same price. It was deal anyway; they have now just put a “meal deal” label on it.

At the end of the day it’s a bargain, and if you’re hungry and in a rush, it’s a cheap and cheerful meal to grab while on the move.
