Blue Apron Overview


Here are the basics on what Blue Apron offers:

  • Flexible subscriptions, with the option to skip unneeded delivery weeks
  • You pick your desired delivery date and select the menus you’d like for the week, then they send you the necessary ingredients and you prepare the meals using the detailed instructions provided
  • 3 meals per week for 2 or more people
  • Fresh seasonal ingredients and artisanal specialty products
  • Typical cost of $9.99 per person, per meal

Overall Experience with Blue Apron:

Our meals for Blue Apron were really delicious, and all were quick to make.  I also loved that the included “artisanal” ingredients but presented them in a down-to-earth, approachable way.  For us, this was a great balance of gourmet and family friendly.
