My Marley Spoon meal kits experience

Meal options

  • There’s a good variety of meals to choose from
  • I was able to find a few gluten-free lower-carb options (my preference)
  • There are less options of number of meals per week than in other meal kits. This can be good or bad depending on your preference.


  • The ingredients for each meal come in a separate paper bag with the recipe name on the label, which is very handy
  • Meat, dairy, etc. come in a separate bag with ice packs to keep them fresh

Recipes and instructions

  • Recipes are easy to follow, contain cooking tips, etc.
  • The recipe cards look expensive, I’m not sure how much they add to the cost of the meals

Taste and portion size

  • Most recipes tasted great
  • Portion sizes were generous
