Why spend yet another dinner eating the same takeout when you can impress yourself with your culinary abilities?
We tested a variety of meal kits and found Blue Apron to be the overall winner because of its creative, healthy, generously-portioned, and well-seasoned meals — not to mention its optional companion wine subscription service.
That being said, if you tend to prioritize all-organic ingredients, a plant-based lifestyle, or fast prep time, you may prefer another meal kit service that caters to those specific preferences.
