Cooking from Meal Kits (Hello Fresh, Purple Carrot, Gousto, and so on)

Recommended Posts

We've been getting one for awhile now, actually (HomeChef). It got us cooking again, and it's a particularly customizable one,  so it suits us. My husband does the cooking, neither of us love to cook, but we're easily bored with the same ol'. At the same time, we're not super adventurous, plus we have a carboholic child. :)  It does the trick at this stage of our life.

I spent about 2 hours, ironically, researching the meal kit market and reviews and meals available currently. 
 

  Nothing appealed at all. The meals were either literally microwaveable or they offered stupid (as in I can make it already) meals or they had bad reviews and were unappealing. 
 

   I don’t mind using a grocery store meal kit— I can at least look at it and it’s subscription free. 
 

  I agree this market has collapsed. So much invested.

I think home delivery is a real niche, but meal kits don’t seem to solve a problem for most people. And they aren’t cheap.

Last time I had this discussion with my son they used meal kits.  (Two teenagers, two adults.)  Can't see it myself.
