  • We tried the angel food regular menu two months ago. I still have frozen veggies in my freezer because we just don't eat them. We did use the meat, but the chicken chunks were not "fully cooked", a lot of them were completely raw, the pork chops had a funny flavor and the steaks had a strange strong flavor and were tenderized to the point of almost mush. It was pretty gross. It was cheap, but the quality was not there at all. We opted not to order again. Honestly, the steak was the last meat we cooked and had it been the first I might have just thrown it all away. They were really, really bad.

  • We've been using angel food for a few months and only once have I had a problem with it (some chicken sausage, I didn't like it but the rest of my family did, LOL). I think the signature box is the best value for the money and have never had a problem with the quality of the food (we haven't eaten this well in years, no way could I afford strip steaks and rib eyes before angel food, I was having trouble scrapping up money for ground beef... steaks were out of the question). We haven't tried the holiday boxes though. I saw them offered but only had enough for my standard 3 signature boxes a month. But between myself, my mom and my MIL, we can come up with a Thanksgiving feast without having to purchase the box.

  • I have used their regular baskets and have had no problems. For my son and I, one box lasted about 2 months...so I went every other month. I have not tried their holiday baskets, but from people that have they liked them. They even have premade meals for seniors and people with allergies. HUGE fresh fruit and veggie baskets too.

  • I use Angel Food every month, I don't know how we would get buy with out it right now. I get 2 of the bountiful blessings boxes and it lasts us about a month, I still go the the store every week, and spend $20 on snacks and fresh fruit. I have had no trouble with the quality, I couldn't afford steaks and the like with out it.

    I tried the Thanksgiving basket a couple of years ago, and it all turned out good. It was the first time I cooked a whole chicken and I took pictures I was so proud (lOL)
