Imprefect Produce is starting to develop a bit of a following. I was first introduced to this company about a year ago by my cousin. It sounded amazing. I was a bit skeptical, after all this is basically a box of rejected fruits and veggies. However, I was informed that the reason why was not because they were overly ripe or rotten, it was because their size and shape were off.
So I figured I would give it a try. I looked it up, chose my box only to discover. They didn’t deliver to my area. I was totally bummed. So, on and off for the next year I randomly checked to see if it changed. About three months ago, it did. So I applied to get my first box. I got only about 10 pound box of fruits and vegetables. I was worried it would not be enough.
I was an idiot. It was almost too much food. The vegetables were a little oddly shaped or a bit smaller than their grocery store counterparts, but they tasted just as good, if not better. I also got a wide range of selections. Now, it’s not every fruit and vegetable imaginable. There are some limits on what they offer, primarily because they mainly use surplus items. However, it was still a good selection and it prompted me to be more conscious about what I buy and what I make over the course of the week. It has also allowed me to try new vegetables that I might not have tried before. Here’s a peak into that box.
What’s also really nice is that they let you skip a week, if needed. Some weeks, I barely manage to get through all the food I have, so it’s nice to know I can pick and choose which weeks I want a delivery. It is not mandatory that I get something every week. You can also cancel whenever you want, which is also nice. The website itself is very easy to use when it comes times to customize your box so if there is a fruit or vegetable that you don’t like, you don’t have to get it.
I’ve been using this service for about three months now, and I love it. If you all would like to try it, if you follow this link to Imperfect Produce, you can save $10 off your first box! I’ll admit that for each one of you who signs up, I do get $10’s off my next box. I will tell you that I’m all about the deals and if I can find a way for you to reduce waste and save a couple of bucks, I’ll let you know.
