  • Which Meal Kit Delivery Service Is The Best?

    There's a wide array of meal kit delivery options to choose from, so how do you know which one is right for you? Digital Trends tried to make the decision easier for you by comparing two of the most popular services: Blue Apron and Plated. In terms of cost, Plated comes out to $12 per serving for a two-person plan and $10 per serving for a 3- or 4-person plan. Blue Apron is slightly cheaper at $11 per serving for a two-person plan, and $9 – $10 per serving for a family plan. If one of the reasons you're opting for a meal delivery kit is to have a variety of meal options, than Plated wins in that category. Plated offers 20 dishes per week while Blue Apron only offers 8. Plated also scored higher for quality of food and the quality of the box the food is shipped in. Overall, Plated was the winner for the average home chef.
