I was wondering if anyone has tried Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, or a similar company? I have not. I have just assumed that they are too expensive and I may as well eat out if I'm going to do that.

I haven't tried any of them and do not plan on it. I like the way you think on eating out!

What Courtney said. Too, their collective tee-vee marketing blitzes in the Dallas or any other market I happen to be in, fazes me not one nary bit.

Never heard of them, and don't care to. I assume they're in the prepaid meal delivery bidniss. Don't want it. Don't need it. Don't gotta gotta have it.

Nobody is forcing you, Chawlie. LOL!

I think they ship you the raw ingredients, with everything measured out, and provide instructions for cooking it. I'm not sure which niche of people they are trying to serve. Probably busy people who aren't that concerned about price.

Thanks for everybody's feedback.

I think they mostly serve people who are not very confident in the kitchen. I have to say that I think taking a few classes at a local cooking school would be a much better investment.

I don't know about your sandbox area Chawlie, but when I visited my daughter in Manama the food delivery business amazed me. In the evening the streets are awash with motor scooters with a box behind the driver, making food deliveries of almost every conceivable type and ethnicity. My daughter ordered in dinner 3 or 4 times while I was there, and I found it to be very good, delivered hot, and very enjoyable. The best we had was a dinner of barbecued meats and side dishes. Our US pizza (and similar) deliveries can't hold a candle to what I found in Manama. :ugeek:

I checked out their web sites. From what I see they send you fresh ingredients and you cook what they send with recipe ideas. Would be good for folks that are not able to go grocery shopping. Saying that, a couple of our local grocery stores now deliver your groceries for you.
