When it comes to cooking and meal prep, there are three things I generally prioritize to keep my meals simple and easy.

First, and probably most obviously, I want it to be delicious. Bland meals are just not for me (or anyone?). Secondly, I want it to be convenient. Complicated lists of ingredients and directions just do not work for my every day life. Finally, I want it to be quick. I do enjoy cooking but I don’t always want to dedicate more than 30 minutes to preparing a meal. Some days of the week when I have more time, it’s absolutely fine. However, on the average day, 30 minutes per meal is usually what I want to dedicate. (Though it’s usually less due to meal prep.)

When Gobble reached out to try and review their meal subscription service, I hopped over to their website and was immediately intrigued by their homepage:

Convenient. Fast. Easy. Everything I look for in my meals!

I simply picked three meals (take a look at this week’s menu here) and they were shipped out in a box with cold packs to keep everything fresh. The gourmet meals are designed to made in about 15 minutes using one pan and are between 500-700 calories per serving,

When the box arrived, I hope on Insta-stories (video clips below) and asked everyone to vote on which meal I should make first. It was a close call between the Lemon Pancakes with Scrambled Eggs and Breakfast Sausages and the Balsamic Glazed Flat Iron with Oven Roasted Parmesan Zucchini Fries.


Gobble Box Review:

Lemon Pancakes

For the first night, we went with the Lemon Pancakes. I only have the final video clip of these but they ended up taking around 40 minutes or so. I think I am just a slow pancake maker because that is what took me the longest to get through.

This meal was overall pretty good but the pancakes were a little on the thin side for my taste. The flavor was there though (the maple butter was amazing), so I rate it a 4/5.

These meals were much simpler than other meal subscription boxes I’ve tried. They aim to be mostly one-pan meals which eliminates a lot of prep (and a lot of clean up). My second two meals that you’ll see below went much faster than the first.

Balsamic Steak

This was one of my favorite meals (those zucchini fries, though ? ). It took hardly any time at all to make. The longest thing was waiting for the zucchini fries to bake! Part of the meal, the Freekah pilaf, was pre-cooked and microwaveable which is right up my alley.

This is the type of meal I will happily recreate on my own as the ingredients and cooking methods are incredibly simple. This meal was definitely a 5/5 for me.

The second meal took far less time and was more on par with what Gobble suggests, taking around 20-30 minutes. In truth, no matter how simple any meal service makes meals seem, I do think it takes the average user longer than the allotted time. Maybe if you already knew exactly how to make the meal and didn’t need to read any directions or double check steps it would be possible to make these meals quickly.


Honey Glazed Chicken

The final meal I chose for this week was Honey-Hoisin Glazed Chicken with Carrot Ginger Puree. My husband ended up making this one entirely on his own because I had a commitment that kept me out later than usual. It actually worked out because then I got his opinion on the box as well!

He said it was quick and easy and something we should definitely do again in the future. I can absolutely see us ordering Gobble at least once a month to try new meals and learn a few new recipes.

This meal was also delicious. I liked the carrot ginger puree a lot more than I originally thought I would. I rate this meal a 4/5.

I got a ton of responses to my Insta-story from people who said they would love to try out Gobble. At the moment, Gobble currently delivers their meal kits to California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Idaho, and Utah. They are planning to expands to more states and areas soon, so stay tuned!

Have you ever tried a meal service? What did you think of it? Would you ever give Gobble a try?
