Ungratefulposted January 25th, 2021 at 8:47 AM I got one of those meal kit boxes for free. Did not care for it. Back to regular grocery shopping I guess.

And they have a role to play, an important role for those who did not learn from childhood (or James Barber in the Georgia Straight). But they seem quite expensive and if you don't need them, cool. Same hereJan 25, 2021 at 1:18pmI was appalled by all the packaging. And the meals were just meh. It’s freeJan 26, 2021 at 2:05amStop complaining. Lots others do not have that luxury ProbablyJan 26, 2021 at 7:39amKind of bland?Don't feel bad, they do that as a promo. Seems expensive and designed for people who can't cook for themselves. Definitely!Jan 27, 2021 at 6:32pmI’m astounded at how popular these things have become. I know someone who used them for a few months and I couldn’t believe how much plastic they accumulated in that time. It’s unbelievable how awful for the environment those kits are. They’re ridiculously expensive, and one could do exactly the same thing by reading a recipe and going shopping. As a woman who worked full time while raising a big family, I think these services are for people who are too damned lazy to put in some effort. Sure, it’s not easy to shop and cook even when you’re working, but lots of us have done it and lived to tell the tale. Grow a set people. Wow.Jan 28, 2021 at 11:24amThis is your confession? Your life is boring af. When people tell me how “great” the meal kits areJan 30, 2021 at 12:23pmI can’t help but think they don’t know how to cook! Also all that extra packaging is ridiculous-I have a friend how wouldn’t stop talking about how great they are and so she sent me the link to the free one but I never activated it since I didn’t see the point. One of the selling points to her was that the spices were all measured out, she said to me “who has cumin in their cupboard?” And I couldn’t help but thinkMe, I have cumin in my cupboard lol!
