Meal Options

With Blue Apron, you can either opt for the 2-Person or the Family menu, depending on the number of servings you want to receive. Both menus offer delicious recipes for meat lovers and vegetarians.

Gobble also has two different subscription plans, including the 2-People and 4-People plan. Both plans feature the exact same dishes, but the number of servings isn’t the same. Gobble has meal options for meat lovers and vegetarians as well.

Variety

The Blue Apron menu contains 10 tasty dinner recipes every week. If you subscribe to the 2-Person plan, you can choose 3 out of 6 dishes from the menu. The Family menu includes 4 recipes every week and you can select 2 or all 4 of them.

Gobble comes up with the same number of palatable recipes as Blue Apron each week. However, with Gobble, you can pick any of the offered recipes, regardless of your subscription plan. You must order at least 2 different dishes every week, but there’s no upper limit.

Nutritional Value

Both Blue Apron and Gobble pay close attention to the nutritional value of the food they provide its customers. Moreover, both companies choose high-quality ingredients, helping its customers eat a healthy, nutritious diet. No matter which company you choose, you won’t make a mistake, at least when it comes to the nutritional value of their ingredients.

Portion Size

Blue Apron and Gobble both provide carefully measured, pre-portioned ingredients for highly nutritive meals. Blue Apron servings are so rich that you can often put some leftovers aside and serve them later.

Gobble won’t leave you hungry either. Each meal from Gobble is tailored to provide 700-900 calories, so you don’t have to worry about people leaving your table unsatisfied with the portion size.

Flexibility

Blue Apron is very flexible when it comes to your subscription. You can skip a week or cancel your subscription whenever you want without any penalties, just make sure you do it before your next order is processed.

Gobble goes a step further: not only does it allow you to skip or cancel anytime, but it also lets you change your subscription and/or food preferences as often as you want. Of course, these changes have to be made before Gobble starts processing your shipment.

Price

Blue Apron charges $9.99 per serving with the 2-Person plan and $8.74 for each portion from the Family plan. Shipping is free for all customers.

Gobble is a bit pricier, so a serving costs $13.95 if you order 4 meals and $11.95 if you order 6 or more meals. Shipping is also free.
