A review of Dream Dinners' products

Dream Dinners is a business built around helping people to prepare meals to eat later at home. While this is an original spin on the idea of pre-prepared frozen meals, are the products good enough? This review will help you to decide whether the products are worth your budget money.

About Dream Dinners

Origin Dream Dinners was originally set up in Snohomish, Washington and the food preparation franchise soon expanded across the country. In fact, there are around 130 Dream Dinners locations across 30 states. Helping busy families The idea behind Dream Dinners is to make it easier for busy families to find the time to eat together. Members of the family can go to a Dream Dinners session, where they are provided with the ingredients and instructions to prepare meals before eating. A week's worth of meals can then be frozen and cooked when needed. Recognition The Dream Dinners' concept has been featured in the Oprah Magazine and on the Food Network show 'Recipe for Success'.

Positive points

There are many positive points in favour of the Dream Dinners concept. Convenience You will spend around two hours preparing a week's worth of food at a Dream Dinners session. This means that there is a lot less time spent at the stove when cooking at home, giving you more time with your family. Cost It costs around $250 to prepare 17 meals at a Dream Dinners session. This works out at around $3.50 per serving, which is obviously good value for money. Fun A big part of the Dream Dinners experience is the social aspect. While you are preparing dinner meals, you will have the chance to chat to fellow parents and maybe make new friends. No washing Nobody enjoys cleaning up after preparing a meal. At a Dream Dinners session, you don't need to worry about tidying up when you are done, as the staff will do this for you.

Negative points

Of course, there are also downsides to Dream Dinners. Lack of choice The meals on offer at Dream Dinners sessions include a very limited vegetarian selection. If you or a member of your family are vegetarian, then you may have to look elsewhere for meal ideas. Side dishes Dream Dinners meals only include the main part of the dish. If you want side dishes, you will need to pay extra for these at the session, or prepare them yourself when cooking at home. Cancellation issues A Dream Dinners session has to be paid for in advance. This means that you may lose money if you cannot attend and have to cancel the session.
