Blue Apron desperately needs you to buy its meal kits
The company has been tossing every possible idea out into the wild ever since it’s stock price hit rock bottom last year, down to $0.65/share. Blue Apron has now launched a new cheaper meal kit called “Knick Knacks” (someone in marketing should be fired for this name), which will be sold in Walmart and Costco. For the $7.99 Knick Knacks meal kit, you get the sauces, spices, grains, dairy, and recipe for a two-person meal, however, battery (I mean protein) sold separately. As of the end of December, Blue Apron has 557,000 customers with an average revenue per customer of $252.

Beyonce and JayZ will give you concert tix to become vegan
Beyonce announced this week on Instagram that one lucky fan will receive free concert tickets to any Beyonce and/or Jay-Z show for life (terms & conditions applies lol) if you commit to a certain number of vegan meals to enter the special contest. Here’s the catch: You have to enter the contest via The Greenprint project
, then purchase a subscription to the 22 Days Nutrition
service ($9.99/mo or $99/yr). Guess who co-owns 22 Days Nutrition…. Meet The Carters. Although this vegan initiative is a way “fight against climate change and conservation,” this is also hugely profiting this meal planner service and potentially the Carters. Another win for vegan capitalism.
