TULSA - Meal delivery subscriptions such as Blue Apron claim to make cooking fun and easy, with original recipes using fresh ingredients and convenient delivery.

Seems pretty easy, but do these meal delivery services really save you time and money

2 Works for You morning anchor Taniya Wright put it to the test.

All you have to do is set up an account, submit your order and then in a few days a box filled with all the ingredients you need to make the meals arrives at your door.

Wright ordered a box from Blue Apron which came with the ingredients to make three different meals. She chose to make the Chilled Chicken Ramen and headed to a local Reasor’s to buy the same ingredients that arrived in the box.

Blue Apron came out to about $10 per serving, the Reasor’s came out to just over $12 per meal.

So, there is not really a big price difference, but if you’re looking to save time, you may want to try a meal delivery service.

It took about an hour to go through Reasor’s to buy everything while Blue Apron was delivered right to our door.
