Other than a few delivery hiccups, blue apron is an awesome service. The meals are unique and delicious! Definitely great for people looking to try new things in terms of eating and cooking! The ingredients are always fresh with excellent quality meats. The instructions are thorough and easy to follow. The service itself is very very affordable as well! Although, I do wish that portions were just a bit larger. It’s also a great bonding experience for those using the service. My husband and I make sure we make the time to cook and eat together as our schedules are very hectic between working and taking care of our son. I look forward to each meal that comes!

5 weeks ago I tried cancelling my Blue Apron account. I was told an email with instructions on how to cancel would be sent. Today, I get an email saying my delivery is on it's way. I called customer service, my account shows that I did make the cancellation request but failed to follow the instructions to cancel. That was because I never got that email. Now, I'm stuck with two chicken order that have butternut squash and farro, two ingredients I don't care for plus I have to pay for this meal - unbelievable! Be weary when having to cancel from this company - they make it hard to so. I won't be back.

Love the fresh produce, unusual ingredients, unique combos of food! I also enjoy not wasting produce because I only receive what’s necessary for the recipe. The BEST part, though, is your having teamed up with WW. By using Blue Apron’s WW menu & the My Fitness Pal app, I’ve lost 13 lbs since August 5th!

I have subscribed to Blue Apron for the past 8-10 months. Initially I enjoyed the variety and quality of the meals. However a few months ago I converted my meals to vegetarian and I have been very disappointed with the variety, quality and quantity of the meals. The vegetarian meals are not at all filling and the veggies they send are not big enough or very fresh. Quite often the produce as not been fresh and when I sent a complaint to the company, I did not get a response. The quantity of food is skimpy, one small, rotting zuchinni or rotten corn on the cob has shown up in my box several times! I have had to throw away the ingredients sent and buy fresh ones to prepare the meal.
I plan to cancel my subscription.

I LOVE the convenience of the service. It is nice to have fresh meals that don't require any planning on my part. The meals feel a bit repetitive over time, and I find that many of the ingredients go bad before I get to use them (green beans and cherry tomatoes are frequently problematic), forcing me to improvise a bit. I wonder if getting delivery on a different day of the week would help make sure the food stays fresh.

For the most part, we love our Blue Apron boxes however there were few times where we were missing key ingredients for our recipes and had to run to the store quickly and purchase ourselves to complete the recipe. I have left comments about this while reviewing recipes and never so much as received an apology for the inconvenience from the company.

I enjoy the fact that Blue Apron sends all ingredients needed for a recipe. I also enjoy that some of the recipes teach me new things. The calories per servings are right about where we are looking.
I still think the prep times is too long for working professionals (although Blue Apron has come a HUGE way versus the time and # of pots when it first launched). One thing that drives me nuts is having to shred cheese or carrots on a box cutter - even if you have a shredder - it's either so time consuming and/or messy.
I would also recommend adding more vegetables from a health perspective. I often add additional vegetables, particularly in stir fries and pasta dishes.
Great strides in last couple years, keep going!

I've just written this same message to your support email address.
I cannot easily access your WW choices, which is what I prefer.
I prefer not to have meat but on occasion rather than in each box. But without having access to making WW choices I have had to take whatever comes in the box. Mosts are delicious, but not what I hoped for. Please be in touch! Thank you! Connie

I’ve really enjoyed the service. I’ve learned a lot of valuable skills and I feel like I’ve gotten a good value for my dollar.

These portions are often way too small. There have been times the chicken and fish don't taste very fresh.

There is often leakage from containers in the Odds n Ends packet.
Bigger selection of meal options each week would be great

Blue apron has changed my life for the better. My comfort and confidence in the kitchen has improved. I used to dislike cooking and I had no understanding of how cook. Now, I’ve improved! And love to invite friends over to cook for them!

Great recipe options. Weekend deliveries are super convenient for my M-F work schedule. Portioning is fantastic in reducing overeating. Lots of cooking tips and constant spice/ingredients discoveries. Loving the experience so far!

My husband and I find most of Blue Apron's recipes delicious, especially the spicy ones. Blue Apron has cut my need to grocery shop dramatically. I don't know yet whether I'm saving money by using Blue Apron but it's certainly convenient.

Blue Apron has truly made my life so much easier. After a long day it’s such a relief to not have to even think about what I’m going to make for dinner, what I have to get at the store etc. It really is a game changer. I have to say that all of the ingredients are always there in the box, I have never been missing anything, they are always fresh and so easy and genuinely fun to make dinner. The portions are great although my only thought on that is sometimes there isn’t enough to be filling, every once in a while I finish the meal and am still feeling hungry. Also, I would like to see accurate “use by” dates on the packaging because at times due to certain circumstances I’m not able to make all the dinners that week and on the Monday after that delivery I’m wondering if I can still use that packaged meat. I might be missing it completely but other wise Blue Apron has been a life changer.

Had a great experience with Blue Apron thus far. Only had a problem 1 time and it was quickly resolved over the phone. Not every recipe blows me away, but enough do that I am very glad to have signed up. Signing up for the healthy selection of recipes has helped me on my way to losing 30 lbs, so far.

Excellent quality ingredients. Instructions any man can follow. Wonderful variety in recipes. Pricey, but I am saving money on groceries overall. I am not buying more than I need, and not throwing out the extras.

Don't fall for the "WW" (weight watchers) being a healthy choice for meals. I was shocked when I received my first order and looked at the nutritional page from the meals I got. Yes is has protein BUT
Beef Vegetable Stir Fry w vegetables=34g of carbs & 18 sugars per serving !
Italian Chicken & Vegetable Skillet w cheese=32g of carbs & 19 sugars per serving !
Mediterranean chickpea grain with carrots,carbs=101g of carbs per serving!!!!! & 22 sugars per serving!
I could eat 2 whole pizzas and a 2 liter of pepsi for that! What makes this WW? I called Blue Apron two different times and they were clueless and passed the buck to WW. I called WW and they were also clueless and told me to call Blue Apron. Seems they know how deceitful these recipes are and conveniently don't know anything. Event he supposed manager seemed even more clueless than the reps that answer the phones. I cancelled my subscription with them and will continue my orders with Hello Fresh. Their regular meals are way less than this company. Not "healthy" in any way and WW allows their name to be used?

I love the quality of Blue Apron and the recipes are great. The only thing that prevents me from putting them at 5 stars is the amount of plastic used in the packaging. If they could do some more sustainable packaging, they'd be perfect!
