A note about serious food allergies
Apple you're familiar with (we assume): slightly sweet, very juicy, slight hints of sour and bitter right around the edges, and you bring one to a teacher, and they're legally obligated to give you an "A." (Kids, this is a joke.) But hoisin may not be as familiar to you and yours. It's equally delicious, with a deep bomb of soy salt, but BBQ-esque sweetness as well. Combine those two, put 'em on a meatloaf, and you've got familiar, plus new, equals flavor. Bring that equation to your teacher, and get that "A." (Kids, again, joke.)
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
