Has anyone subscribed to any of these services like Blue Apron or Home Chef? I have a friend who gets one of those two (can't remember which one) and LOVES it.
I did a week subscription to a service called Gobble this week and the meals were delivered yesterday. I got a nice introductory deal, so it was only around $35 for six meals (3 meals for 2). Each week, they have different meals available and they run the gamut from full carnivore to vegan. You can choose the ones you want. I chose a fish meal, a chicken meal and a pork meal, all different types of cuisines.
Tonight I had my first meal and it was amazing. It was a nice big piece of pan-roasted barramundi (a type of sea bass) with roasted potatoes, sauteed spinach (with a nice garlic and shallot puree) and then a caper and buerre blanc sauce for the fish and spinach. Everything was portioned out and pre-mixed. The capers and puree were in little plastic containers that I will wash out and keep. Only the buerre blanc was in a plastic bag. The potatoes were mostly cooked, so I just popped them in the oven to roast for around 10 minutes.
Most importantly, it was really good! The other two meals I got were Moroccan chicken with apricot and almond couscous and a spicy Korean pork bowl with broccoli and carrots.
Oh, they also added in a little treat of two chocolate chip cookies. It was two balls of frozen dough that just needed to be baked up. They were delicious!
I did have to cancel, because I can't swing nearly $80 for 6 meals, but it was fun to try the service! If (WHEN!) I have a bigger budget, I'd definitely consider subscribing again to Gobble or another service.
Has anyone tried any of these services? Reviews?
