I got their special one off box for christmas dinner. I was amazing! I didn't need to run around getting food. It fed all 10 of us. And was so easy to make! Seriously, it was good food and saved me time. I will do it for Thanksgiving and Christmas next year! I got to enjoy my family and not slave around. It was awesome!

If you eat a lot or are big or tall or an athlete like me, you'll need the family pack unless you're just cooking for yourself (the meals tend to be about 600 calories). The family pack gives you 4 meals, so 1 went to my girlfriend, and I had 1.5, and then saved 1.5 for leftover meals another day. It's nice because I like nice meals every now and again, but when I do that the ingredients normally go bad because I don't use all of them, or they just sit around. Overall, the taste is fantastic, the price could be better but isn't bad, and I like the variety of options. So far so good.

Words cannot express how much I adore this box!! The meals are always awesome!! (well once thy had this salmon salad thing that was horrid!! but I forgive them as everything else has been amazing!!) The food is always fresh and the recipes are super easy (my 15-year-old is learning to cook and it is an easy way to teach them without being all crazy it about it. I like that I get to pick the meals and we are adventurous eaters so having a new recipe or 6 every week id awesome!! They give plenty of food to fee the 3 of us too!! Highly recommend Blue Apron!!!

    What is Blue Apron & how does it work?

  • Blue Apron (starting at $47.95 per month) is one of the best meal kit subscription boxes, according to our readers. Like other meal kits, Blue Apron sends members the pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions they need to cook up to four restaurant-quality recipes each week. Unlike the others, we find that Blue Apron recipes have a slightly more “foodie” feel, with globally inspired touches and clever combinations. Blue Apron is also up front about their commitment to sustainability and supporting a healthier food system. You can read about Blue Apron’s mission here.

    We appreciate how flexible Blue Apron is—you can set preferences for what you get or handpick your recipes week to week, you can schedule deliveries in a way that’s convenient for you, and you can skip deliveries if you’re busy or out of town. (The Blue Apron app makes this process easier.) You can also switch up your plan (the number or pre-set type of meals you signed up for) from inside your account.

    Blue Apron boxes come chilled and insulated, so that the meats and produce inside stay fresh in transit. Just pop everything in your fridge within a few hours of your box being delivered. (In our experience, ingredients stay recipe-ready for at least a week after they’re unpacked.) And because everything is pre-portioned, you’ll only get as much of an ingredient as you need to make the recipes you picked that week.

    Blue Apron does expect you to have a few staples on hand—usually salt, pepper, olive oil, and water—as these common ingredients get used recipe after recipe. You’ll also need a few common kitchen items, such as pots and pans, a baking sheet, mixing bowls, a colander, and tools like a chef’s knife and basic utensils. (Note that you can always read recipes in full before they ship, so you know everything you’ll need ahead of time.)
