You choose the box and whether you want it each week or every other week. Then, you choose what you want included in your Imperfect Produce box. This ensures you get what you like and skip what you don’t. Once you’ve filled the box, you submit your order and you’re good to go. The menu changes weekly, so you can customize each box to your liking. They price all their items individually and there are no minimums, so you can order as little or as much as you need.
Here’s What I Put in My Imperfect Produce Box
I opted for the large box during my test. When they say large, they weren’t kidding. You can add a lot of items to the box, more than you’ll probably be able to get through in a week. As you can see, it was actually two boxes.
One box included (you guessed it) produce. Pears, apples, oranges, grapefruit, cucumber, lemons and more. I was expecting creepy, misshapen fruits and vegetables, but as you can see in the photo above, but overall, it was a good haul. The majority of the produce we received in the box was in great shape and not imperfect. Much of it lasted quite a while, so we were able to enjoy it without feeling like we had to rush to do something with it all.
We did have to throw out two mangos, as they were a little funky. If you ever run into an issue like that, you can reach out to the company directly and they’ll help you out.
Imperfect is More Than Just Produce
As I mentioned earlier, I was surprised by the amount of pantry items available from Imperfect Produce. Olive oil, beef jerky, crackers, apple sauce and a few other things arrived in my box. There was a lot to choose from in the pantry section, and I specifically tried to focus on the essentials as well as a few things that I probably wouldn’t have purchased otherwise. For example, siracha cricket chips.
I was on the fence about the Eat Bugs brand chips, but for you, dear readers, I decided to give them a try. They were surprisingly good! A bit dry, but honestly, you’d never know you were eating crickets.
