For this section of our review, we wanted to gain an insight into what people who have ordered Rooted Meal Prep kits in the past thought about their experience. Furthermore, we wanted to learn how that feedback compares to reviews of the company’s competitors. We went through hundreds of online reviews of different meal kit companies and marked them as positive, negative, or mixed. Next, we singled out all the different reasons reviewers gave for liking or disliking the company, and compiled them together.
When you look at online reviews, you should remember that most people who leave feedback online are those who were either very satisfied or very unhappy with the service or product they received. At the same time, those who thought that their purchase was good enough and on par with what they expected usually don’t feel the need to share their experience online. This bias is especially evident when it comes to purchases that are made completely online, which is the case with meal kits. This is why we don’t just look at the ratio of positive and negative reviews in our analysis. Instead, we take a deep dive to discover what exactly customers liked and hated about the meal kits they’ve tried.

We found that many reviewers praised the meal kit delivery service for their delicious food, responsive customer support, and clear recipes. The proportion of people who noted these advantages in their reviews was higher than the industry average in each case. At the same time, we could not compare negative aspects people mentioned in their reviews because there wasn’t any negative feedback about the company online. Overall, this means that people who order Rooted Meal Prep boxes are anywhere from satisfied to extremely happy with the service.
