NEW YORK – Blue Apron BB #:292398 introduces two easy meal kits with brand-new ingredients, perfect for summertime gatherings and festive celebrations. Created to serve up to eight, the limited-time offerings include delicious and hassle-free seasonal favorites, giving customers two unique options to choose from to meet their hosting needs.

The Blue Apron BBQ Rib Feast features bone-in ribs, a brand-new addition to the menu, and easy-to-assemble side dishes. Customers also have the option to order an all-new Summer Crab Picnic, which includes crab salad sandwiches, bright, veggie-powered sides and dessert. Each box comes with a recipe for a refreshing summer cocktail to pair with the meal.

“Our summer meal kits are anchored around culinary exploration, ease and convenience with new seasonally-inspired, quality ingredients,” said John Adler, Blue Apron’s Senior Vice President of Physical Product. “The bone-in ribs are already pre-cooked when they arrive and are designed to be ready in just 15 minutes, a preparation which would typically take four to six hours. The crab salad sandwiches are a perfect summer staple, with pre-cooked, easy-prep lump crab meat, allowing customers to spend less time in the kitchen.”

BBQ Rib Feast
