IMBT Ep.3 (Part 2)
My trial box from Blue Apron arrived today! This video will just cover the unboxing. Part 2 will show the actual preparation of the meal. My first impression is that it seems like a very small amount of food for the money that the package would have cost ($60). I’m trying to keep an open mind by so far I’m not impressed.
When my wife got home we got down to preparing the blue apron meal. Wifey was not impressed from the start and it didn’t seem to improve very much by the time we got done eating. The food wasn’t terrible it was just bland and mostly tasteless. It was however very aromatic and it left our apartment smelling great. For what amounts to $20 a meal I would say just go and buy yourself a cheap cookbook and go to the grocery store. But if you’re looking for something different or you don’t really know your way around the kitchen this could be used as a good way you teach yourself some new cooking skills. Fortunately for me and my wife is an awesome cook and this service doesn’t look like something that is a fit for us but we are sure that it is a great fit for someone.

Aug.10 — Less than two months after going public, Blue Apron Holdings Inc.’s shares have fallen almost 50 percent to about $5 — less than the price of one of its meals — as the company struggles to persuade investors that it can win the hearts of America’s cooks. Bloomberg’s Cory Johnson has more on “Bloomberg Technology.”
