What We Like
22 weekly recipe choices
Optional Protein, Breakfast, Dessert, and Family-style Side add-on’s
All of the meals tasted great. Our favorite this week was the Bacon Cheese Smash Burger. We especially loved the addition of taco seasoning to both the cheeseburger as well as the crispy breaded brussel sprout tots and will be using this great idea for burgers in the future. The brussel sprout tots weren’t as crispy as we hoped, but we did have a bit of trouble coating them evenly. The sauce on the Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin was super flavorful and I could definitely see us making this recipe again in the future.
We are a family of 3 and ordered the 4 serving meal kits this week. These offered plenty of food with leftovers for lunch. We have purchased the 2 serving meal kits in the past and add a vegetable side or salad to add a little more to the meal. I would recommend doing either if you are a family of 3 or a family of 4 with 2 young children but would note that when you purchase the 2 person kit you will have much smaller portions of protein and might be fine on carbs like rice and pasta.
We would absolutely order again! The recipes from Marley Spoon were easy to follow, provided enough food to feed our family of 3 with leftovers, and tasted great. We also love the variety of recipe choices, all of the add-on items like proteins and desserts, and dietary options that Marley Spoon offers each week. The only downside that I see is that Marley Spoon is in the mid-range for price depending on your order, which could deter some people, but for the quality of the recipes and ingredients, it’s definitely worth a try. Marley Spoon, like most meal kits companies, offers new customer promotions which make trying them out fairly inexpensive.

Marley Spoon Reviews: Packaging, Quality and Quantity of Ingredients
All of our ingredients were fresh upon arrival and lasted until we cooked the last meal 5 days later. We are a family of 3 and there was plenty of food for us in the 4-serving meal kits. These recipes could easily serve 4 adults.
The box, liner, and paper meal kit bags are recyclable. The empty ice packs, cool pouch, and plastic bags Marley Spoon says can be recycled, but we do not recycle #4 plastics in our area. I would be happy to have all of my ingredients in 1 bag or no bag at all versus all of the individual plastic bags reducing waste and potentially reducing costs.
