My friend's niece gets that and likes it. Seems like a big waste of money
to me.

And? Was it worth the price? I am not considering this, mind you, just
a topic for discussion.

There are a bunch of these services. You pay 4-6x as much for food as
you would if you'd just shopped and prepped the food yourself. There
are much better options if you're just trying to avoid those 2 things.

-sw

They don't even do the prep. They just drop off a box of overpriced
"local" food with a recipe. You still have to do all the work.

"And thatís exactly why we connect you with local suppliers, ensuring
that produce goes from their farm to your fork in the shortest time
possible. From ToJo Mushrooms, our esteemed mushroom farmer, to Murray's
Chickens, our sustainable chicken farmer, you can be sure youíll be
eating the best."

Sorry, I don't know ToJo the esteemed mushroom farmer nor do I know
Murray or his chickens. Get back to me when you can tell me the name of
the gal who sells me eggs.

For some, it's worth the price because they don't have to meal plan,
grocery shop or buy large amounts of seasonings when just a little is
called for in a recipe. They are given a written recipe on shiny card
stock and spices are pre-measured and all packages are clearly
labeled. all you do need to prepare vegetables... ie: cut the
zucchini and cook the food. When you're ready to cook all you do is
take the recipe and pull out the necessary ingredients.

If I was single, I would probably have an entirely different outlook
so maybe it would make sense. Every meal is scaled for two, so I
could cook once and eat twice. I would probably not mind spending
extra money so that someone else would come up with interesting meals,
grocery shop and parcel out ingredients in the exact amounts that I'd
need and give me a recipe to follow.

I still enjoy hunting for interesting recipes, grocery shopping and
cooking, so the subscription wasn't worthwhile for me. In fact, I
felt rushed because I had my own list of meals that I wanted to make -
but the box was here and I knew another one was coming in a week. So
I cancelled the service. AFAIC, it's good for people who don't enjoy
meal planning, grocery shopping etc or families who work long hours
and have children who need to be fed sooner than later after work.

I suppose it makes sense in some situations. Thanks for the answer.

Me and my sister in law were just talking about this. She buys
some of the vegetarian kits for my niece and lets her cook them
herself. it's great learning for her and she tries things she
might not otherwise and makes life easier for them all. Plus they
keep the recipe cards for what she likes so she can recreate them
with grocery store items.
