Straight Outta Box: 20 Best Food Subscription Boxes (2020 Update)

Who would have imagined that our apocalypse guise would resemble the Bananas in Pajamas more than Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator?

Then again who would have known, that to save mother Earth, all we would need to do is simply stay home and keep everyone safe?

From time immemorial humankind has imagined all the unimaginable things that can grip the world and equally unimaginable ways in which we would emerge, saving the day.

The only picture that wasn’t on our plate was – today.

No matter how bizarre the time is, and how much things around us have changed since the beginning of 2020, one aspect of our life has to stay constant – food on our table.

Now that the grocery store isn’t the wisest place to be, and spending a long time cooking every meal every day isn’t exactly the wisest thing to do, we bet you would love it if appetizing meals walked into your home instead.

So here we are, laying the table for the best food subscription boxes for you to choose from.

Pick the best food subscription box for your home, or several if you can’t decide on one, and simply eat the apocalypse away!

Top 20 Best Meal Subscription Boxes in 2020

The process of choosing a convenient service should not be inconvenient.

Hence, we have grouped the best meal subscription services into several categories so that you get a clear idea about what to expect from each of them.

Some of our top picks are vegetarians’ paradise while others are for more versatile eaters. Similarly, some are for fitness junkies while others are for couch potatoes just like us.

Kids need to eat too, remember?

So, if you have rays of sunshine giggling and running all around you, worry not! We have a category that prepares food just for them.

We have some great snacking options too!

Most services here provide ready to eat food. Open up and start munching right away or give it only a few minutes inside the oven or on the pan.

Some, however, provide recipes with all the ingredients correctly proportioned. The good news is, all these are quick recipes, and complying with them is extremely easy.

So, without much talk, here we are with our top 20 best meal subscription services.

Editor’s Pick

Sun Basket:

Sun Basket is a weekly meal kit subscription box that brings healthy yet delicious meals at your doorsteps.

What makes it the editor’s pick?

Several things.

With an all-round performance, Sun Basket wins the race in several of our categories including- Very Versatile, Delicious DIne, Healthy Bites, and Fitness Club.

Let’s elaborate.

All Sun Basket meals are clean and healthy and made with USDA organic ingredients. The calorie profile of all their dishes is surprisingly low.

This does not get in the way of taste though. Sun Basket recipes are supreme and delicious. They don’t taste like healthy food at all.

Moving on to versatility, Sun Basket caters to all sorts of eaters with as much as 10 diet plans including paleo, lean and clean, gluten-free, and vegetarian.  If you are not that picky or don’t have specific dietary restrictions, try their Classic Family Plan.

There are about 18 recipes to choose from every week. Depending on your plan, Sun Basket will serve you 2 to 4 meals for four people weekly.

While other meal kits have their recipe manuals in the form of recipe cards, Sun Basket takes the task to an aesthetic level by providing a beautiful magazine inside every box.

You will find your weekly recipes here along with some enlightening articles and handy tips on healthy eating.

The recipes are fairly easy, quick and taste delicious.

Don’t be fooled when they don’t taste ‘healthy’ at all. These are low-calorie meals with a perfect balance of macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

The low-calorie content of Sun Basket’s meals makes it an ideal food subscription box for people looking to shed some extra pounds.

Certain other details will steal your heart.

For example, Sun Basket provides an egg when their recipes call for one. This is very thoughtful and we know only one other meal kit service that does this.

Sun Basket also offers grocery add-ons if you want. So, this is like a two-in-one food subscription service and a grocery store. You won’t get this perk anywhere else.

With everything we have told you so far, it goes without saying that Sun Basket is indeed the best of the bests.

Healthy Bites

Freshly:

With tasty and healthy gourmet meals prepared by a panel of expert chefs, Freshly has earned a lot of praise.

For us, it is the fact that all Freshly meals are prepared meals, makes it a winner.

Most contenders occupying the list of top gourmet meal subscription boxes provide meals in the form of pre-portioned ingredients and step by step recipes.

Freshly provides gastronomes of the same caliber completely prepared and ready to be served.

Blue Apron:

Blue Apron is the pioneer of the currently booming food subscription service industry. Undoubtedly, it is here to stay.

Blue Apron is well known for its appropriately portioned healthy recipes. The ingredients are all products of sustainable farming practices and are non-GMO.

The meal kits are designed by Blue Apron’s very own culinary team. Sometimes they invite celebrated chefs to prepare specialty dishes.

The unique feature of Blue Apron is that they will slip one or more unexpected ingredients in even the most ordinary recipes.

It is this off-beat ingredient or two that adds the extra punch to the dish, making all the difference in terms of taste and flavor.

There are three meal plans. Signature and Vegetarian are meal plans for two people whereas Signature for 4 is for a group of four (duh!)

Hello Fresh:

Hello Fresh lets you choose from more than 20 meals from three different meal plans. It is a weekly meal kit subscription box that proudly flaunts its easy and tasty recipes.

Hello Fresh meals are quite popular for their unique flavor profile.

There are two things in particular that are praiseworthy. Firstly, all meal options include breakfast. We think this is quite insightful.

In the second place, they include eggs whenever their recipe needs one, instead of asking you to procure one from your refrigerator.

This meal subscription box is really friendly to your wallet. But that also implies that there might be a catch.

Rest assured, there isn’t any.

The only thing you may find bothersome is that it is less accommodating to people with specific dietary requirements.

Jerky Hunters’ Box

SumoJerky:

Jerky isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Or should we say jerky isn’t for everyone’s plate?

However we put this, you get what we mean, right?

If you aren’t a jerky person, you probably have skipped this section of our listicle.

The ones still reading can check out this monthly subscription box of quality beef jerkies.

Food in a Gulp

Soylent:

For all the busy bees who don’t have time for eating, let alone preparing meals, Soylent is a grab and go solution to your dietary needs.

Named after a term coined in a fictional novel, this meal replacement drink brand aims to be the next generation of food for humans. It is available in different flavors.

Soylent is packed with good fats and protein. Each drink provides 400 calories of energy and meets almost all of your macronutrient needs and 20% of micronutrient requirements.

Each serving also contains 3 grams of healthy fibers that make you feel full and content.

In short, with Soylent, you can gulp down all your dietary needs instead of chewing.

The subscription is on a monthly basis. You can expect a crate full of Soylent drinks on a fixed date every month. You get to decide how much you want. They will pack your box accordingly.

The subscription is pretty flexible. You can pause it for as long as 8 weeks.

What’s in the Box:

Soylent drinks in numbers you decide.

Yum Points:

  • A quick solution to skipped meals.
  • A complete meal in a bottle.
  • Zero sugar.
  • High in good fats and proteins.

Flat Points:

  • It contains more fat than you actually need.
  • How ‘healthy’ Soylent actually is, is a matter of debate.
  • Not ideal for weight loss.

Favorite Flavor:

Soylent Cacao: The velvety texture of Soylent Cacao is what we liked best among the Soylent varieties. However, we feel meal replacement drinks could taste better.

Pricing:

Starts from $32.30 per month.

Best For:

Busy bees who skip meals often due to a lack of time and energy.

It’s Time for the Dessert

Having reached the dessert of this full course listicle on the best food subscription boxes of 2020, we have a few words of advice.

In order to meet the nutritional needs of your entire family, it is best to choose either of a pre-cooked meal subscription or a meal kit subscription, whichever is more convenient. Choosing both is unnecessary.

After getting that settled, it is highly recommended that you subscribe to a snack box, a candy box, and an ice cream box. That way, you’ll never feel bored or feel as if you are munching on the same thing forever.

Reap the benefits of a wide array of food subscription services ready to deliver at your front porch. Above all, in these uncertain times, stay home and keep your loved ones nutritionally covered.

Until next time, addio!
