Meeting the Meat
After watching the unboxing videos on Boxed Halal's site, I wondered whether the packaging would be as good in real life and if my products would arrive fresh.
We're talking about sending meat through the postal service after all! But that worry was in vain as within just a few days, the contents of my online shopping cart had arrived at the door.
All the meat products were packaged perfectly and arrived in an insulated box. Additional freezer packs kept the beef and chicken I'd ordered fresh. Success, my zabiha halal meat arrived safe and sound.

Yes, Boxed Halal is legit. Boxed Halal works closely with their vendors to provide the best quality Zabihah Halal meat.

Food for Thought
Hats off to Boxed Halal, the service was fast, the meat products available are diverse, and, perhaps most importantly, the meat is delicious. I used some of my delivery to make roast beef and some to whip up chicken nuggets for the kids — suffice to say both were wolfed down in no time.
Next time, I'll be filling my cart up with some of the company's other products such as the sliced roast chicken breast and the Ahi tuna steaks.
