How Gobble Works

Like many meal delivery services, Gobble lets you avoid the boring parts of cooking and enjoy all the perks that come with making sumptuous dinners. Professional chefs pick and measure the ingredients before chopping, slicing, and packing them for Gobble’s customers. Gobble basically offers you pre-measured, par-cooked ingredients followed by chef-created recipes delivered to you every week.

Once a week, on a day you choose, Gobble delivers a meal kit packed with pre-portioned ingredients and excellent recipes for 3 dinners. You can opt for 3 meals for 2 or 4 people, which means 6 or 12 meals in total. After your first delivery, you can lower the number of meals to 4 or increase it to any number you want, there are no limits.

Gobble does its best to provide only sustainable, fresh meat, shellfish, and produce for you. It cooperates with trusted local purveyors and farmers and sends freshly hand-picked ingredients to your home.

Moreover, with Gobble, you don’t have to plan cooking in advance since you need only about 10 minutes to prepare a delicious dinner. All ingredients are chopped, so all you need to do is follow its simple 3-step recipe and serve an exquisite dinner in the blink of an eye.

What Makes Gobble Different

Gobble brings an innovative way of healthy eating to your home. It enables you to eat a well-balanced diet without spending time on grocery shopping and preparing ingredients.

With its par-cooked ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes, you can become a first-class chef yourself. There’s absolutely nothing you can do wrong since all the ingredients are prepared and all the recipes are as straightforward as it gets.

Gobble Different

What’s more, you can use your recipes an infinite number of times. Even if you lose or misplace your recipe cards, you can easily download any recipe you want from Gobble’s website.

Another great advantage of Gobble is that it uses nothing but food of the highest quality. Although you’re dining at home, you always get extraordinary food that can be found in first-class restaurants. Every ingredient you get comes from the same producers that provide food for local Michelin-starred restaurants.

Furthermore, you can pick your delivery day. You can choose between Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Gobble packages arrive between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on your chosen delivery day and you don’t even have to be at home to receive the meal kit. Also, you don’t have to worry about the food getting spoiled. All ingredients Gobble sends are vacuum-sealed and packed in insulated boxes to stay fresh and good-to-eat for hours.

If you like Gobble and enjoy its food so much that you’d like to share it with your friends and family, you can send them a Gobble gift. Gobble gives you an opportunity to send your loved ones a gift card worth $75, $150 or any amount of your choice, which can be spent on orders from Gobble.

Meals and Recipes

Gobble Meals and Recipes

When you subscribe, you can select the sorts of meat you prefer or you can opt for exclusively vegetarian meals. If you eat meat, you can choose poultry, lamb, pork, beef, fish or shellfish. You can also select all types of meat or make a combination of your favorites. Gobble gives you the freedom to tailor your orders however you want, so you can change your preferences anytime.

As we’ve previously stated in this Gobble review, you can choose between dinners for 2 or 4 people. In both cases, you receive 3 dinner kits. After your first order, you can change the number of meals you want to receive. Its rich weekly menu offers 10 delicious meals you can choose from. The menu always features several kid-friendly dishes, providing you with a healthy dinner that your children will love.

As for the dishes, you can treat your palate with splendid honey-hoisin glazed chicken, mouth-watering grilled flank steak or delicious Thai basil tofu, for example. With Gobble, you can surprise your loved ones with new, creative recipes prepared in your very kitchen.

Unfortunately, people with special dietary needs don’t have so many choices as omnivores since Gobble doesn’t offer exclusively dairy-free, gluten-free or nut-free menus. There are options for people with special dietary needs on the weekly menu, just not as many as some other meal delivery services offer.

Gobble Meals and Recipes

    I have given this food service three chances and have been very disappointed every time. The first time I ordered my meal and was told delivery would be a certain date by a certain time. It was not until that date and time had passes that I was contacted with an apology saying that the order could not be completed and I had to wait another week. The same thing happened the second time I gave Gobble a chance. Both times I tried calling multiple times (well within the available phone hours) and received no answer and no response to my voicemail. Eventually someone answered me via email. I asked for a refund. I just simply could not try to rely on an unreliable food delivery service for my meals, and I can't afford to both grocery shop and order Gobble on a weekly basis. I was told a refund was not an option because the service was initially purchased through Groupon. I have no issue with the service of Groupon. I have an issue with the service provided by Gobble. Finally the third week I received the food and it was good. Now, since I was asked to reconsider leaving Gobble, I tried it one more time. Surprise! No food. I can't even tell you how frustrated I am to deal with this yet again! I was beyond excited when I received the email saying that my food was going to be delivered by the agreed upon time on the agreed upon day. I should have expected that was untrue. This is absolutely unacceptable.

    Gobble is by far my favorite meal delivery service. I have tried it for a total of 4 weeks and have yet to have a meal I was disappointed in. Some of the prep work is already done, this is the only meal delivery I have tried where you actually can complete meals in 15-30 minutes. Most meal deliveries have complicated directions and are time consuming. Gobble meals are perfect for a busy life. I have found the 2 person plan is enough for myself and my 4 children. I appreciate that many of the sauces are already made and some of the vegetables are prepped. Many meals have rice or potatoes that are partially cooked to either be quickly pan cooked or microwaved but they have all tasted wonderful and it makes the meal preparation time a lot faster. With Gobble my family has tried many foods that I don't generally think to make like Tofu and barley and they have all be delicious.

    It's true that I can make a dinner that costs much less, but the service, the quality, the convenience, it really means a lot to an old lady like me who isn't so skilled in the kitchen as some 20 years ago. Just lovely, really.
  • Submitted By Liz Kinell on 10/28/2017
    At first, I thought it to be too expensive, but boy, is it worth it! Fresh food, quick to make, and most importantly, the kids aren't complaining.
  • Submitted By Marissa Driver on 10/22/2017
    My box was damaged, it was wet and obviously, the driver dropped it into a puddle or something. I was so mad, but the support folks were so nice about it and shipped a replacement box so quickly that it made me love them even more than if the package was ok. Plus, everything was just perfect!

    Awesome food and they weren't joking, it's really ten minutes, if not less.
  • Submitted By Tm on 10/08/2017
    Terrible communication, never received my meals, nor refund. Website ask for credit card each time you try to log in. You can't just purchase one week to try it out without them keeping cc information stored so they can continue collecting auto payments.

    Protein portions that are anorexic. Rotting veggies. Bad instructions. Bad customer service. Very disappointed.
  • Submitted By Dorothy Henson, on 03/02/2017
    Incredible meals, just too good to be true! More than satisfied!
  • Submitted By Nancy Bell, on 01/22/2017
    Food is fine but it’s a bit pricey.
  • Submitted By Joey Donovan, 3 on 11/29/2016
    Nothing special, I don’t think people in Michelin star restaurants really eat like this. It’s fine once a month, but not so spectacular as they say.
