ACME + Plated signs!

The photo above was taken at the Edgewater store and the one below is from Weehawken. Truth be told I didn't read the small print and just assumed the signs were announcing the arrival of Plated at Acme. After taking a closer look while preparing this post, I see that is not the case. The signs simply announce that Acme and Plated have teamed up. To what end? It's not clear. I went to the website and found no mention of Acme at all. I assume both stores will be carrying the meal-kits but can't be sure.  Guess I'm just too anxious to see how this whole thing plays out!


Sopped in the Hillsborough Weis recently and found this display just inside the entrance. Their very own meal-kits! Have to say the pictures on the boxes did make the meals quite tempting. I happened to grab the Fettuccini Alfredo with Kale for a closer look and was shocked at how light the box was. Dinner for two? Felt more like lunch for one. Still, it was interesting to see how one supermarket chain is jumping into the meal-kit game.

Progressive Grocer has an interesting, in-depth article on the new trend of supermarkets teaming up with meal-kit companies. You can check it out by clicking here.
