With so many meal kit delivery services to choose from, how does one stand out? Gobble does by making sure their meals can be made in 15 minutes or less without skimping on high-quality ingredients. It’s faster than waiting for a restaurant to deliver. It’s convenient for busy families who are trying to feed their kids healthier meals without sacrificing great taste.
Gobble delivers the ingredients for three meals each week in one handy box. The ingredients are packaged together by meal to make organization in the fridge easy. Each recipe has just three easy steps. To help you save more time, all the ingredients are pre-measured and pre-chopped so all you have to do is open the box and start cooking.
You may select two-person or four-person meals and if you’re too busy or if you’re feeling adventurous, Gobble will select the meals for you based on your profile preferences. Recipes are categorized by poultry, red meat, seafood, and vegetarian meals. Many recipes are labeled as being kid-friendly and major allergens are listed for each meal.
- Sirloin steak with smashed Yukon potatoes and three peppercorn sauce
- Pan-roasted chicken with green bean casserole and mashed potatoes
- Sweet chili shrimp with coconut rice and Thai coleslaw
- Potato pierogis with caramelized onions and sautéed spinach
Another perk of Gobble is that they have add-ons such as a breakfast subscription, which includes three quick-and-easy breakfasts and what they call a gourmet brunch meal, which takes a little longer to prepare. Other add-ons include side dishes, salads, and cookies; they vary based on availability.
Gobble delivers several days a week. You may choose your delivery day based on what’s available in your area. Gobble makes it easy to skip deliveries if you need to. They have an extensive FAQ page to help customers and they also provide an email address and phone number for any specific questions you may have that aren’t answered on the website. Regular email reminders help you keep track of your orders and the emails include links to your recipes in case you accidentally threw out the recipe card that comes in your box. Your account can easily be managed on your phone through the Gobble app, too.
What Sets Gobble Apart from the Others?
Gobble emphasizes speed and convenience without sacrificing high-quality ingredients. All the ingredients arrive measured and cut. Recipes have three steps and often need just one pan or pot. Gobble also provides a choice of add-ons so you’re not limited to dinners, plus they let you add more servings so you can feed guests or a larger family.
They source their ingredients from small farms from across the United States. Along with the pre-cut veggies, they also par-cook some of the meats and vacuum seal them so they stay fresh and won’t take as long to cook. Each meal is designed to be between 700 and 900 calories so you can be sure you’re getting a healthy dinner.

- Additional meals may be added to your plan at the regular price.
- Costs of add-ons vary.

Pros and Cons
Most customers say it really is that fast and easy to prepare the meals from Gobble and they taste great. You can add more servings, making Gobble convenient for families who eat more than the four servings per meal that many other services cap out at. Gobble features add-ons such as breakfasts and desserts. It’s one of the more expensive services per meal because some of the ingredients are shipped pre-cut and pre-cooked to save you time, but that extra prep on the other end costs the consumer money. The service is not available in Alaska or Hawaii.
For the nights when meetings run late or traffic is a disaster, Gobble saves dinner without resorting to take-out. It’s a cheaper and healthier alternative to restaurant delivery and can be made in less time than it takes to wait. Gobble makes an excellent gift for new parents, too, who are crunched for time but still need a hearty meal.
