Whole Foods was bought out by Amazon in 2017, and since then there have been some changes, so far the merger has resulted in some positive shifts such as in-store Prime deals and Amazon delivery of Whole Foods groceries. One of the latest things to hit the shelves are the grocer selling Amazon meal kits.
Similar to meal kits offered by companies like Blue Apron and HelloFresh, each box contains all of the ingredients to make a meal for two in about 30 minutes, and costs between $16 and $20 (or $8 to $10 per serving). Some sample dinners: Seared Salmon with Fennel and Pea Risotto, Butternut Squash and Sage Baked Rigatoni with Spicy Green Beans, and Mushroom Congee with Lemongrass Chicken and Sweet Potatoes.
For now, you can find the kits at Amazon Go stores and Whole Foods locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California, Nevada and Arizona. And, AmazonFresh and Prime Now customers in Seattle, Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California and the Northeast can order them to be delivered.
