    What do you think of meal delivery services like this? I've known a few people subscribe to blue apron in particular but there are others in the market too Do you think these are a good tool for people who don't know much about cooking?

    They seem vastly over priced to me.

    For people who know nothing, have no pantry or freezer already stocked it could make sense if you get a groupon deal, otherwise yeah it's kind of pricy.

    For people like us.. I think it's a fun mystery box challenge. I wouldn't even follow the instructions.

    The portions are decent. Pricing - treat it as a basic restaurant meal but just prepared and eaten at home. It's nice for people who are trying to branch out and work with diff flavors and the proportions+ratios are already set. Still have to have basic prep and stovetop cooking skills IMO

    I'll do a Plated or Blue Apron every once in a while but am moving away from it.
