I don’t get “Kid Friendly”, Imo, you should just feed children what you feed yourself, That’s how my mother did it and I’m happy because I’ve always liked eating foods that everyone else around me hated.

My favorites are the same, only in reversed. I stil think Blue Apron has the most sophisicated meals, and I love being able to build up my recipes for future use. They are making me an amazing chef.

I should mention that I use Everyplate, and total cost is only 6.50 per meal, including shipping. $5 per meal, plus 1.50 shipping per meal if you get the six meals.

She may have added shipping twice by mistake. But either way your math is correct. The base price is only about 6.50 per portion.
RJay 9 aylar önce
@Tara Eggebrecht The 38.93 is correct for six of their standard meals (two meals per recipe), including shipping.

Tara Eggebrecht 9 aylar önce
I was wondering where she got 38.93. I think she got a premium meal as one of the options which costs about $4 more a serving.

I have wanted to try some of these kits, but what my husband likes and what I like are quite different. He won't eat peppers, seafood or fish and I am not big on meats like steak and pork. I would probably enjoy the vegetarian selections, but him, not so much. And I am not even going to think about my teenager eating and enjoying one of the meals. Too many flavor profiles for him. Thanks for breaking down each kit. It seems like I hear a lot of people using Home Chef. Maybe some day:)

I've only used Hello Fresh and it was good but my husband can be kind of picky so we stopped getting them. I've been wanting to try Home Chef since I've started watching your channel (maybe 2 years ago or so?). But that meal prep box from Blue Apron was very cool and intriguing! Very well done video!!

This is just what I needed. I have wondered about the meal kits instead of buying all ingredients from the store. I want to eat healthier instead of getting so hungry that I reach for quick food choices that are unhealthy. BTW I eat the stems of the broccolini. Because it is younger, it is more tender. Yes, I love homemade tomato soup. I just ate some (from a restaurant) today and am trying to tear apart the ingredients to make at home. It had basil and a little heat (maybe cayenne).

Super interesting! Thanks. Out of the four you tried, I have tried Home Chef and Blue Apron. I personally didn't care for them enough to keep ordering, but I LOVE Green Chef! I will get it a couple of times a month, sometimes skipping a month or so. I love their Keto and Paleo meals. The food is super high quality and I love the sauces that usually come with the meals. :)

This was super helpful! I'm frugal and love to try new recipes from my huge cookbook these boxes haven't ever been something I looked into. However, I do think my mom and dad would love them (and especially now not really going out to eat) you know if you can just buy a single box as a gift for someone? Or do you have to 'subscribe' for regular deliveries?

I like that fact that you can keep you recipe cards and recreate the meals ( for the most part ) yourself if you really like a meal and want to be a little more cost effective by purchasing the ingredients yourself.

I was excited to see the Blue Apron, and I loved the video comparing the different brands. However, I wished with Blue Apron you were able to see what the choices were before you commit to placing an order. I have had Hello Fresh in the past, and it was okay. Also, considering Home Chef now. that is if I don't have to commit to a purchase before I choose a package.

I can just never justify the costs of these meals. I always go to order them and back out at the last minute because I know I can create the same meals at a fraction of the price. If I understood correctly that EveryPlate grilled cheese and tomato soup was 4 servings, meaning $32 for grilled cheese and soup... outrageous! I mean you could go to Panera and let them cook it and clean up for the same price. I appreciated your honesty and thorough preparation in filming this.

Slow clap for Jen because this was incredible! So thought out this must have taken so much work. I've been using hello fresh for a while and like to order it about once a month but everytime I open the box, I'm disappointed with the protein portion sizes! I think I will order blue apron next and see how we like it 😁 I was literally searching for a video like this to see what else would be the best option!! Thank you 🥰
