blue apron meal kit
9/10

Blue Apron

When most people hear the term 'meal kits', Blue Apron is one of the first brands that comes to mind. Founded in 2012, Blue Apron is the front-runner that started the phenomenon that many people are becoming a part of. Everyone can now have simple, healthy meals without having to put in too much effort. Since its popularity started to rise, many other choices for meal kits have been put on the market and many are wondering if Blue Apron measures up to them. But is it worth it? Are the meals complicated? Are the meals delicious and realistic? What if I have allergies? Don’t worry, that is all explained in this honest review.

chefs plate meal kit
8.7/10

Chefs Plate

Meal kit services aren’t the most budget-friendly meal-time solution for Canadians. But along the spectrum of cost, Chefs Plate sits on the most affordable end. You can’t help but wonder if this is an indicator that the quality of the service/ingredients/recipes is lower as well. Does one of Canada’s most affordable meal kit companies come with drawbacks that devalue its service?
