Blue Apron's pricing is broken down into two options. For the couple, you can purchase six meals for sixty dollars. For those with a family, you can purchase four sixteen meals for 143.00 dollars. In both cases, you'll be guaranteed four nights of delicious, nutritious recipes and ingredients to make at home with your family. This comes out to ten dollars per person for the couple and just under nine dollars per person for the family. And the meals? They are delicious! Persian-style chicken with crispy rice, caramelized onion, grilled cheese sandwiches, and crispy catfish and spicy vegetable curry are just a few of the constantly changing meals options.
Yes, Blue Apron will give you delicious options and convenience. Yes, it will be cheaper than eating out and healthier than eating fast food, but in no way is it comparable to what you will save by simple, old fashion grocery shopping and meal prepping. For example, if you were to replicate the caramelized onion, grilled cheese sandwiches, you could easily make twice the servings for 1/4 the price.
If you have dietary needs and restrictions that require a more refined list of options, Sun Basket is your best meal kit delivery option. Sun Basket sets itself apart from other delivery systems by guaranteeing all ingredients will be organic and non-GMO. They also offer Gluten-Free, Paleo, and vegetarian options. They boast a farm-to-table focus with an emphasis on sustainable farming practices and small, local farm support.
Cost wise, you are looking at a higher price tag and less flexibility in your ordering options. Sun Basket offers the "classic plan" which gives you three deliveries per week. You have the option of receiving two or four servings in each delivery at 11.49 per serving. The other option is the "family plan" which gives you two or four deliveries a week with four servings per delivery at 9.99 per serving. Like Blue Apron, the meal options are no joke! One of the major perks to these systems is that you receive guidance on how to create recipes you normally would not be exposed to. It expands your culinary vocabulary and pallet, but at what cost?
In the case of Sun Basket, your motivation to purchase their product probably comes from a desire to support local, sustainable farmings and/or fill a hard to address dietary
