If you don’t want to read my full review, here are 6 Meals for $36 at Gobble!
I have been using Gobble since April of 2020. However, this review is only my second delivery with their service. Not because I didn’t like their service, but because I have been researching and trying different meal-kits to see which ones I like best. Meal-Kits are a great resource for those trying to cook at home more often and need to save time. They can even cut down on your grocery bill because you don’t spend money on unnecessary items, and the food doesn’t go to waste! I have tried out almost all the services available, so I will continue to share those experiences! I have already shared a breakdown of Blue Apron in this review!
Price is a major factor when I choose a Meal Kit Service. This is the normal pricing and plans you can get when you sign up with Gobble.
- 2-Person Plan $13.99 Per Person – 2 Recipes per week $55.96 & $6.99 shipping = $62.95
- 2-Person Plan $11.99 Per Person – 3 Recipes per week $71.94 & $6.99 shipping = $78.93
- 4-Person Plan $11.99 Per Person – 3 Recipes per week $143.88 & $6.99 shipping = $150.87
You can add on additional meals to your delivery for the week, but those are the basic plans they offer when you first place your order. Gobble’s prices are a bit higher than other meal-kit companies, which can be a downside to their service. But they are comparable to Marley Spoon and Hello Fresh, but Blue Apron is a bit cheaper. However, a plus for Gobble is that they do offer a referral program! You can send invites to friends and family, and you will receive a $20 credit if they sign up, and they get their first box for $18. I have used that benefit many times, and now I have credits saved up for me next boxes.
My Gobble boxes have come in great condition both times I have ordered. The box itself has been in good shape, and it is inserted with an insulated cooler liner. There have been a total of four large ice packs sitting on top of the ingredients carefully. Two of the ice packs are placed on the regular ingredients and two are covering the meat. According to the website, the box can go into your cardboard recycling bin at home. The gel ice packs are completely non-toxic and can be cut open and poured safely into the trash, and recycle the plastic bag. Or you can refreeze them and use them for yourself! The insulated liner and plastic bags are recyclable as well!
Ingredients & Freshness
Gobble is one of the most exciting meal kits when it comes to flavors! None of the recipes that they offer are boring or plain. They give the options of everything from Asian, Mediterranean, American, to Indian-inspired dishes. Their ingredients have been fresh and of great quality, in my experience! Their meat has been excellent as far as flavor and texture go, which isn’t always true with other companies.
Gobble has many options for different tastes as I have already mentioned. They offer sixteen recipes to choose from per week. Ten are regular options, four are apart of the Lean and Clean, and two are premium meals with an upcharge. I personally feel their options are well rounded and they have something for everyone. I love their Lean and Clean option because they are more health-conscious and offer lower calories and fat. The proteins they offer vary between chicken, pork, beef, seafood, and even lamb. If you are a fish lover, they offer a variety of high-quality fish such as salmon, Ahi Tuna, and barramundi. They also offer multiple unique vegetarian recipes per week.
Ease of Prep
The ease of preparation for Gobble meals is nothing but excellent! They send recipe cards in the box to ensure you have everything you need for a quick meal. Gobble prides itself on offering pre-prepped meals that make it easy to finish dinner quickly. The longest I’ve spent cooking one of their recipes was 25 minutes and I was not rushing at all. So, I would say if you’re looking for a meal kit company that helps you prepare fast and efficient dinners, this is the one to go with. Their vegetables are chopped, diced, or cooked, and even their pasta and rice come pre-cooked too. So, overall their meals take minimal effort with excellent rewards!
Cancellation & Customer Service
Customer service offers email and phone to get in contact with them. I did email them for the first delivery I received from them because one of the vegetables was usable but bruised. They responded within minutes of my email and offered me a credit for the vegetables. I was impressed with their quick response time, especially since it’s through email. As far as cancellation goes, you simply log in to your account on their website, and in the dashboard section under help, you can request them to deactivate your account. They send an email to confirm after you’ve canceled. They also give the option to skip as many weeks as you want. Like I said earlier, I have skipped my deliveries for months, and kept my account up and running.
Okay, the taste is one of the most important categories, and that is why I save it for last. The two recipes I chose for this review were Wagyu Beef Mushroom and Swiss Burger with Pear and Spinach Salad and the Sumac and Za’atar Spiced Chicken Thighs with Zucchini Squash and Green Harissa.
Sumac and Za’atar Spiced Chicken Thighs
The Sumac and Za’atar Spiced Chicken Thighs recipe were apart of their Lean & Clean menu. So, it was a healthy veggie and protein dish. The chicken was juicy and flavorful from the directions of cooking, and the sumac and za’atar spices! It was paired with sauteed zucchini and yellow squash topped with their harissa dressing. Overall, this dish was healthy, refreshing, and full of Mediterranean flavors. The flavors were not unique and powerful, which made it quite delicious and fun to eat. It only took me 20 minutes total to cook, and the calories were only a little over 400 per serving! I would order this dish again because not only did I enjoy it, but it was husband approved.
Wagyu Beef Mushroom and Swiss Burger
The Wagyu Beef Mushroom and Swiss Burger were quite honestly, one of the best things I have eaten in a long time! I ordered this dish because I have heard fantastic things about Wagyu Beef and I wondered if it lived up to its reputation, and it did! The burgers were juicy and beyond flavorful! They were not dry at all, and it was the best tasting beef I have ever eaten. Everything about this burger was fabulous, from the bun to the meat, cheese, and mushrooms on top. My husband said it’s better than any burger he has had in a restaurant, and I agree! The side Pear and Spinach Salad was good, but underwhelming compared to the burger. However, I don’t really enjoy fruit in a salad, so that’s probably why I didn’t love it. Overall, this meal was awesome!
