October Gobble Box - Weekly Meal Delivery Service

Gobble is a little different from the other weekly meal delivery companies. The Gobble meals are mostly pre-cooked and take about 10 minute to prepare. They advertise that you go from kit to table in 10 minutes or less. Each meal is 500-700 calories making them a healthy choice. Gobble also sources their ingredients from local (to them) places in some cases the same farms and purveyors as local michelin star restaurants. The standard dinner kit comes with 3 different recipes each serving 2 people. Those total cost for that service is $71.70. If you want each recipe to serve more people then it's an additional $11.95 per meal in increments of 2. Meaning you can order a serving for 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 and each increment adds $23.90. Sounds confusing but it's not once you order. 

Price: For standard meal delivery of 3 recipes/2 servings each $71.70 per week. 

This service only ships to California and Nevada at this time. 

The good:

Busy: This is great for busy people. The ingredients are fresh, on hand and the meals take on average 10-15 to prepare.

Don't cook?: The included recipe cards are easy to follow and a some of the ingredients are already cooked. 

Eating Healthy: Each meal is 500-700 calories.

Ingredients: fresh ingredients from local (to them) purveyors. 

Need a specific delivery day: You can choose between Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Also the food is well packed on ice packs in an insulated box.

The not so good:

Price: It's a bit pricey at $24 per 2 person meal but you're paying for convenience. I can tell you after working a 12 hour shift the last thing I want to do is come home and prepare a meal from scratch.

Pomegranate Braised Short Ribs with Root Vegetable Mash - Prepared


The recipes:

Salmon Cakes - Very good but not easy to make. My salmon cakes fell apart. 

Cassoulet with Garlic Sausage & Duck Confit - I picked this one because the boyfriend likes duck. I'm not a fan personally. Even though I don't like duck normally I tried it anyway and it was very good. I ended up taking it for lunch and it was delicious! 

Pomegranate Braised Short Ribs with Root Vegetable Mash - I picked this one because I love short ribs and the boyfriend is not a fan. We both thought it was delicious. 


FREE BOX - If you're interested in receiving a free box with 3 meal kits send me your email address. First come first serve. Only available to NEW Gobble customers. I will update this post when this offer is claimed. I have 2 free boxes available. 


Verdict: I enjoyed the quickness of these meals but it's a more expensive option than other similar services.
