Gobble is a good choice for those that want super easy, quick, and simple meals. These meals can be completed in under 15 minutes for those on the go or anyone wanting to make dinner with little to no prep. We found most the meals to be very comforting and filling with excellent portions.
Gobble is quite limited on dietary options. They offer only two different meal plans: Classic Dinner or Lean & Clean Dinner. Classic Dinner consists of traditional recipes made in 15 minutes with seasonal ingredients. Lean & Clean Dinner option has meal that can still be made in 15 minutes, but they are all 600 calories or less and are low carb with lean protein and no filler grains.
While Gobble does provide vegetarian options for the Classic Dinner plan, they do not have organic or non-gmo ingredients, and lack options for diabetes-friendly, kosher, weight loss, keto, paleo, and Whole30.
Gobble has serving sizes for 2 or 4 people. You can decide between 3 or 4 delivered meals a week, but the pricing will increase depending on both your serving size and how many meals you order a week.
Gobble did not have the freshest ingredients because many of their ingredients are previously prepped and therefore preserved or reheated in the microwave or stovetop.
If you’re looking for a prep kit that has high-quality, fresh ingredients Gobble might not be the best option since they are committed to meals made in under 15 minutes with little to no prep.
Regardless of ingredient freshness, many of our meals and ingredients tasted delicious and the flavor didn’t disappoint.
Meal Prep & Taste
We ordered three meals pictured above and enjoyed them all. All the meals had very classic, comforting flavors that were yummy. The Shrimp Linguini was tasty and full of summer flavors, but we weren’t very keen on the preserved lemon taste.
The Balsamic Steak and Zucchini Fries was by far our favorite! The steak was cooked beautifully and was tender and flavorful. We definitely plan to make the zucchini fries again.
The Lasagna Rolls were like comfort food and super cheesy. This meal was rich but very delicious, nonetheless.
Gobble Prices & Coupons
Personally, we found Gobble to be a little pricey considering the ingredient quality and lack of dietary options. Dinner for 2 with is priced at $11.99 per serving & Dinner for 4 is also priced at $11.99 per serving.
When you decide to receive 4 meals a week instead of 3, the price for 2 people increases by roughly $24 dollars and increases by $47 dollars if you choose 4 people.
We believe the value of the Gobble box (Dinner for 2, 3 nights a week) compared to other meal delivery kits was adequate at best. We prefer fresh ingredients when cooking, and Gobble did not deliver.
|Meals Per Week||Dinner For 2||DInner For 4|
Shipping is free for the first week of ordering through Gobble and after the first week shipping is $6.99.
|All Weeks After||$6.99|
Packaging & Recycling
Gobble had a ton of plastic packaging for their ingredients and meal items. Pretty much everything within the box was made of plastic, so the packaging was not exactly environmentally friendly.
The writing on the recipe cards was also very small and scrunched so the visibility was poor.
However, you can recycle your Gobble box, the gel ice packs once emptied, the insulated liner, and the plastic bags (so long as they’re clean and dry!).
Gobble’s customer service was excellent. They make it super simple to skip a week, pause your account, and cancel your purchase of meal kits.
We accidentally reordered a box from Gobble which was quickly and efficiently cancelled and refunded to us all within 3 days. We were pleased with their great customer service and effectiveness when it came to this situation.
