What You Get With Either Chefs Plate or Goodfood
I thought that it was worth noting here that these two leading Canadian food subscription boxes have much more in common, than they do “in different”. The main question you should ask yourself is not what is the best Canadian meal kit but whether you meal kits are a perfect fit for you.
While my family preferred the taste of Chefs Plate vs the taste of Goodfood, it’s key to understand that taste is subjective. In addition to trying these meal kits personally, we’ve talked to many of our friends and family into trying these meal kits and giving us their opinions. Finally, in order to make this Chefs Plate vs Goodfood review as comprehensive as possible, we scanned review sites, Youtube unboxings, and various social media platforms to get as many first-hand looks as possible. While Chefs Plate seemed to win out roughly 75% of the time based on taste, there were several Canadians that preferred Goodfood. Many reviewers had only tried three meals of each, which isn’t a big enough sample size to be relevant in my opinion.
