    Marley Spoon started out great for us. Really super inventive tasty recipes and quality ingredients. In the past few months it has started to decline precipitously. Lots of missing ingredients, spoiled food, punctured package, late deliveries. Not sure what is going on but seems like they are having significant growing pains...
  • Submitted By Jessie on 04/10/2018
    The recipes were easy to follow and the food was fresh and tasted pretty good. BUT the recipes I had to choose from were all very high in calories and fat. I also thought the protein portions were very small. While the taste factor was there, it wasn’t good enough to be worth the calories!
  • Submitted By debbie stavish on 03/31/2018
    The food was very good. The chicken was super tender. All ingredients fresh. Less recycle than hello fresh which I liked. The wrong recipe came with one of the dishes but we looked it up in line after calling customer service twice with no response/follow up from them. That part was frustrating enough for us to give Blue Apron a shot. Yet I may come back depending...

    We have been using the Martha Stewart meals for six months and love them. The delivery is always on time and the only time we had a missing ingredient was when I ordered the Christmas Cookies box. The produce and meat is so fresh. Portions are very large and easy recipes to follow. We have three meals per week and can't imagine life without this service. Perfect for a busy couple.

    Food was not flavorful and it is more expensive than other home food delivery services. It also used a lot of common allergens in the recipes such as tree nuts.

    I would not suggest Gobble. We've tried a few and theirs was the most bland and AWFUL customer service. I could buy the most inexpensive glass bottle of Indian Masala sauce at someplace like Aldi, some jasmine rice and that would have WAY more flavor and be much less expensive and quicker. I really disliked that when you cook their meals at home, you have no idea what is in their sauces. What really made me the most upset was their customer service. I tried to cancel on their website and it wasn't possible. I then made several calls over two weeks to them, via an "urgent" number, and they never once answered. Terrible service! They never once called me back but sent me some blanket emails saying they tried, although they never did. They then sent me another package and charged my VISA $145 for a week of food. I didn't even get to make the selections. I had no other alternative but to cancel my VISA card at that point. Don't go with this company. I've tried other wonderful services in which people actually answer my phones calls and the other food services are quick to respond for things like customer service, billing, questions on a meal, an ingredient missing, produce not up to par. Needless to say, I was EXTREMELY dissapointed in Gobble's customer service and their lack of food taste/quality and will say don't bother with them. Too many others out there when Gobble can't be bothered with customer service and good meals.

    Not bad, but not impressive. The flavors were a bit bland compared to other services. My biggest complaint was that they use pre-made sauces and spice blends. Not knowing what is in the sauces, was a little problematic for us because we try to avoid corn (syrup, starch, maltodextrin, etc.). I can use potato starch instead of corn starch if it's an option, but when they're pre-mixed, I have no control. In addition, the purpose of getting these meal plans is to help us learn better how to combine ingredients when we're cooking other meals.

    This is my fourth week with Gobble and while I have enjoyed the meals two of my four boxes have arrived a day late. The one time a box arrived late when I used Plated customer service very quickly stepped up and provided a credit on my next box. Both times the email I received from Gobble was the same scripted response that the food should still be fresh. For now I will continue to use Gobble as the ease and taste of the meals is of high standard, but I do think they have some work to do in the area of customer service.
