‘I got a new Morrisons meat box delivered and discovered exactly what’s in it’

Morrisons has expanded its range of food boxes – allowing people to get essentials delivered straight to their doors.

After the incredible popularity of its original essentials box, the supermarket beefed up its range to cover seven different options.

You can now choose between meat eaters, vegetarian, Ramadan and gluten free standard boxes of essential food for £35.

Then there are the family meat box (£45), assorted fish box (£35) and The Best meat boxes (£55) also available – letting you pick your own sides to accompany your dishes.

Once you’ve picked your box, your food will be delivered by DPD who will send you an email with everything you need to know, so you can keep up to date with your order.

We managed to get hold of one of the new meat boxes so we could check out what’s included and share the details.

The box arrived with a single ring on the doorbell – with the driver dropping it off so social distancing was fully maintained.

But there were no concerns for the products inside getting too warm – with ice packs and insulation included to keep things fresh.

When it was all laid out you could see just how much was included.

Added up it came to 4.6kilos of top notch meat.

You had two big joints of meat too – both weighing more than a kilo.

One gammon joint that can be boiled and then carved down for dinner (gammon egg and chips anyone?) or sandwiches and a herb-crusted pork loin that looks like it will make for a delicious centre piece for a roast lunch.

Then there are 12 sausages and a pack of bacon that would work well for hearty breakfasts or more.

All in all plenty enough meat to last a family a week once all the leftovers are accounted for.

It’s not their cheapest option – although all the products are top quality so it’s still good value.

We counted £50.30 worth of meat in our £55 box, although the changing weight of the joints means you might get slightly more or less than this.

  • 2 x Morrisons The Best Fillet Steak 200g
  • 2 x Morrisons The Best Rib Eye 227g
  • Morrisons The Best Hampshire Pork Loin Joint With Herb Crust Typically: 1.054kg
