A note about serious food allergies
Grab your grass skirt and coconut bra out of the closet; winter is on the way, and your ticket to a tropical paradise is here. Close your eyes as you bite into the sweet pineapple and teriyaki-glazed meatballs… you can hear the sounds of waves gently lapping on the shore. The lime slaw gives you all the bright liveliness of a sunny beach day. What other meal kit company gives you both dinner and a beach-bumming fantasia? Tip: Want to get the most juice out of your lime? Before cutting, microwave for 15-20 seconds to "soften" the fruit. Then, gently roll the softened fruit on your work surface while pressing on it with your palm. Finally, give yourself some serious mechanical advantage by placing a cut half in between the arms of a pair of tongs to make squeezing much easier.
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.
