Pre Purchase

I’m vegetarian, is the subscription right for me?

  1. All of our Foodpacks are suitable for vegetarians as they are made with milk and soya protein. The only products that we sell that aren’t suitable are the optional extras, our flavoured jellies and Mousse Mix.

I am Vegan, how can I follow a subscription?

  1. We’re sorry our subscriptions are currently unable to cater for vegans. All our Foodpacks are suitable for vegetarians. We do have Vegan products you can purchase individually that you may be interested in. You can find those here.

When I purchase my subscription, how can I personalise my Foodpack bundles?

  1. You can purchase the TotalFast subscription here. We have automatically selected your Foodpacks for you in the subscription however this can be personalised. You can take out the products we have selected for you and add other products in their place using the plus and minus buttons on the product.
  2. Each section of the subscription has a set limit of products to choose from to adhere to the boundaries of our TotalFast plan. For example, you cannot have more than 7 MRP products in a week. This means you cannot select more than 14 MRP products for that 2-week period.
  3. You can also add optional extras, such as jelly or broth to your subscription by clicking on the optional extras tab. Please note that the optional extras will be delivered to you every two weeks, so if you just want your optional extras as a one off, please remove them from your subscription before your next payment. Once your bundle is 100% complete with your selections you can add to cart and then check out. The easiest way to personalise your subscription is before you add it to your cart. You can also edit your subscription once it is in your basket by clicking the edit button under the product title.
  4. Check out our handy video on how to personalise your subscription here.
