I’m looking at Blue Apron www.blueapron.com and wanted to see if anyone has ever tried it? They deliver fresh, cold-packed ingredients along with the recipes and you make the dinners yourself.
I’m interested because of the variety, conceives and i think it would ultimately save money over takeout/food going bad in the fridge. my main concern is some of the main dishes like polenta? Eh, DH wouldn’t eat it and I’ve had it but I’m not a fan. You get to preview the menu each week but don’t know which out of the five or six you’re getting!

You can uncheck foods you dont eat to prevent from getting them. I uncheck fish because it never tastes right when it is shipped. iI personally prefer some other services (plated.com and hellofresh.com), because I like their menus better.

I’ve tried Blue Apron for a few weeks. Here’s my take on it:
– You can preview the menu of the week and know what you’re getting. You can cancel if you don’t like the food that week.
– All the food we’ve gotten so far has been pretty delicious and relatively healthy.
– The food is definitely more upscale than the typical dinner I haphazardly throw together on a weekday.
– It’s a fun thing to do as a family or couple for date night.
– The food can take forever to prep. It can easily take 45-60 minutes to prep one meal.
– Some of the recent menus have had pretty lame options. Really, you want me to pay $20 for 2 BLT sandwiches?
– It’s on the pricey side – if I cook on my own, the cost is way less than $10/meal. But to be fair, my food looks a lot less photogenic and fancy.
I don’t have a lot of time these days for Blue Apron, nor have I liked the recent menus. I’m experimenting with Munchery this week!
