    We received our first box of meals today. I was excited to try something new since we had been using Blue Apron for the last 6 weeks. I loved how the ingredients were already separated according to recipe, something that I had been wishing Blue Apron would do. The quality of ingredients was poor! The radishes seemed to have been kept at too high of a temp at some point, the peach wasnt ripe and the avocado had been substituted with grape tomatoes. Disappointment! Worst of all the chicken had the strangest texture that I couldnt even explain. I throwing the rest out. I personally don't trust it to be ok. Back to Blue Apron for sure. I haven't been disappointed with even one meal.

    There have been a few hiccups with orders (it feels like they're still adjusting to their growth), but their customer service is always 100% friendly and supportive. The food has been great (fresh, high quality meat and produce). But I especially like their many diet options, from vegan to paleo. Paleo pescetarian is especially hard to find (at no additional cost) and has been a great option/compromise for me and my husband!

    Sun Basket delivery service and customer service is the least efficient of all the meal plans on the market today. It is more expensive than most and the delivery date is unpredictable resulting in spoiled, rotten food that is your meals for that week. Total inconvenience and we have spent too many weeks trying to resolve these issues with Customer Service even providing pictures of the disintegrated boxes and spoiled food. Customer service is willing to discount a small percentage on future deliveries which is what we have done, several times, but the delivery problems continue and we will be using Plated. If SB cannot get the food delivered on the scheduled date and fresh, other food delivery services can! Buyer beware!!!!!

    My husband and I love to eat and are adventurous eaters who enjoy ethnic food and a variety of flavors. Unfortunately, my husband and I do not enjoy cooking. We actually kind of hate it. So, all that translates to a LOT of take-out and eating out. This service hasn't magically transformed us into chefs who now love to cook, but it has made our dinners much easier and healthier. Some people complain about the price; however, keep in mind that the service: 1. Takes care of finding recipes and meal planning 2. Provides all the (organic!) ingredients so you don't have to go to the store - big one for us! 3. Portions out all the ingredients so you don't overeat and you also don’t have 9/10th a bushel of parsley rotting in your fridge. 4. Allows you to cook with unique spices/sauces without having to invest in an entire bag/bottle. Suffice it to say, it's worth it for us and folks like us who are culinarily challenged. We enjoy the variety of recipes/cuisines and meal plans (i.e. gluten free, vegetarian, etc.) compared to some of the other meal delivery services. Here are the CONS we’ve experienced: - Some of the recipes are fairly complex with quite a few steps which makes it tough if you’re cooking solo. - It’s not the cheapest, especially if you upgrade the meats. - Delivery days are limited depending on your location. - They send a new recipe book… every week! Seems excessive and wasteful. I’ve got a huge pile accumulating. All in all, we are satisfied enough with the past 6 months of service and plan to continue.

    I hate cooking but I live alone and can’t even look at frozen dinners anymore. Gobble is the closest thing to a pre-made meal that tastes like real, homecooked food.

    Literally the only meal kit service that actually saves you time on cooking. Plenty of choice, ok prices, I’ve been ordering for months and they haven’t disappointed me yet!

    Would give 0 stars. Here is why: I purchased a phone and service plan for my wife from Virgin Mobile as a Christmas present. Virgin put her in their "Inner Circle" which was supposed to carry extra benefits. One of these was a week of free prepare at home meals offered by Gobble. When I signed up for the free meal offer, Gobble told me it wasn't available to me and refused to fulfill the order. They haven't indicated when, if ever, I can expect fulfillment. They claim they don't ship to my area. I've asked why they continue to partner with Virgin on the Virgin web site as a benefit. Haven't received an answer that is satisfactory. I've asked the same question of Virgin and haven't gotten a satisfactory answer. This has been going on since Dec 2017 and Virgin as well as Gobble refuse to fulfill the offer as listed on Virgin website. As far as I'm concerned, this looks like false and misleading advertising. As of last month there isn't any disclaimer on the Virgin site about this offer. When I recently checked with Gobble the representative there said they service my state (MO) but not my city (Kansas City). So why do they and Virgin continue to advertise the offer without any kind of disclaimer? I have now canceled my wife's Virgin account. Gobble has refused to respond to a recent compliant I filed with the Better Business Bureau and the California Attorney General. However I still expect Gobble to honor their commitment as advertised on the Virgin Mobile web site when I entered into the agreement in good faith.

    The food was fine but the website itself doesn’t always make It clear how much you will be charged. I’ve also been charged for and sent a week that I skipped. I wouldn’t recommend this delivery service in comparison to most of the others out there. They have so many issues.
