hungry (from $8 per serving) It is basically an online grocery store. You’ll run a test on what you like to eat, and the service will have your groceries shipped to your door, along with recipes based on whatever’s in the week’s box. For example, one of my packages had chickpea pasta crusts and a superfood tomato sauce, but I was free to dress it up with whatever I wanted or use the ingredients separately. It’s a great way to complement your pantry. You can choose to pick out the groceries yourself, or Hungryroot will do it for you based on your nutritional profile. Allergens and diet filters abound. There are plans for one, two, three or more people. Could you View available groceries here To get an idea of the offers.
incomplete foods (prices vary) of the most popular “Ugly Foods” grocery boxes. Distorted products, non-perishable items that are perfectly fine but past their “best” date, scattered boxes… None of these things make food dangerous, but they do make it hard to sell. Incomplete foods are not traditional. After registering, you will be able to share your food preferences and see your assigned delivery day. Fill your chest each week with a rotating selection. You can choose weekly or bi-weekly deliveries. Component prices vary and shipping ranges from $6 to $9.
sun basket (from $11 per serving) Offers a large number of meal plans with an emphasis on fresh, organic ingredients. There is a large variety on every weekly menu, so there is something to suit everyone. Some of the other meal subscriptions I tried had wilted or subpar flavor – Sun Basket didn’t have either. The dinners were full of ingredients similar to the ones I’d pick at the store, including flawless fruits and vegetables in season. Aside from nutritious dinners, you can also add things like coconut yogurt, seed butter, egg bites, soup, and snacks like nuts and crickets. (If you were wondering, yes, crickets were great.) Food filters allow for options like Mediterranean and pescatarian, as well as allergens. You can also add things like bacon, sauces, and desserts to your weekly shipment. For meals and groceries combined into one serving, the Sun Basket is a safe bet.
horde the cow (prices vary) This is a grocery box that revolves around meat. (You can also order sides and desserts, but I haven’t tried that.) From ground beef to Waygu fillets, to a selection of fish like lobster tails and salmon, to staples like chicken and cold cuts, Crowd Cow has it all. You can even get bison, duck, or other hard-to-find animal proteins. The packaging is 100 percent biodegradable and recyclable, and shipping is carbon neutral. The company also strives to make its meat in the form of sustainable as possible. Boxes are available to order, or you can opt for repeat deliveries to save 5 percent and get free shipping. Prices vary, but Crowd Cow could be a good option for a landlocked seafood lover like me (or anyone who wants to supply chain view of their meat.)
Farmbox live (from $41) Offers produce boxes only. There are a few varieties to choose from, but all contain only fruits and/or vegetables. You’ll choose the size you want, but the content customizations are limited. You can make up to five replacements per week based on the rotating menu. I was able to use the majority of mixed fruits and vegetables, but had a few bums that weren’t used (like a huge bunch of kale that thawed before I could reach them). This service may not be for everyone, but if you’re an avid produce lover or succulent, it might be worth a try. Bonus: Free delivery.
great spoon (from $65) Offers a plethora of smoothies, soups, pasta bowls, cereal bowls, and shots. Every ingredient I tried tasted very natural – so yes, those lemonade doses will go down just as you’d expect. Regardless of a very pungent experience, I loved everything I tried, especially the brand’s juices. The ingredients are clearly listed as well, so Lemon Fiasco could have been avoided. All meals are vegan and free of both gluten and GMOs. Plans include combinations of many different offers, and deliveries can be scheduled infrequently once a month. Just make sure there is some space in the fridge – the products are a bit bulky.
