Ready Made And Delivered to Your Door!
Been quite a few months on Foober program. For easy convenience meals delivered to your door. Great packing ensures items are fresh for the time in delivery box. We’ve been on a dinner meal only. They also have some options for breakfasts, lunch, desserts or juices. Items are fresh and sealed. Been ordering 5 days worth for myself, husband and son. I’ve been unwell so not able to cook. My husband is not a great cook and works so these have been ideal. All meals are calorie controlled and keto style. Meals are big enough to satisfy you. The...ir ordering system is a bit annoying when you try and alter menu items for week after. I’m IT savy and even I have to check with their help if it has been ordered correctly. But the help person via Facebook messenger has always been super helpful. They have times to order in advance which is a week before delivery. This is a bit annoying in comparison to some other services we tried prior to Foober. Payment is via direct debit. Having PayPal as an option would be great but isn’t an option. All in all has been the best we have tried now out of 3 services. Food options have had best options to satisfy all 3 of us. Can stop at anytime by cancelling your order which is great. There is a fee for delivery which had not been the case with other services we tried, however that has been reduced to a lesser amount in past month or so. Could be more green vegetables in meals though.
Very poor logistics and organisation: order problems & non-delivery
I purchased 4 weeks on Foober last week, really excited about starting keto I have not managed lockdown well with proper diet and exercise. I want to get back to healthy.
The online order didn't process smoothly, and I didn't receive email confirmation. So I rang them to confirm.
San confirmed receipt of the order and said the first shipment would arrive Saturday. It didn't.
On Saturday, I got 2 texts saying "Get excited! Your food is on the way!" So I delayed a walk with a friend that I sorely needed so I could be there to receive it. It n...ever arrived. I rang the number in the texts this morning - they said didn't receive the box, and said Foober will ring me today. They didn't, so I rang them. San apologised, and committed to a full refund. I cancelled my subscription. In her confirmation email, she said the delivery company delivered to the wrong address. ??? Unreliable. Annoying. Upsetting. Tedious. I'll go to Dietlicious or some other provider.
My wife and I started a Keto diet July 2020. By November I had lost 24kg & my wife 18kg. With 3 young boys ,meal time can me very busy. Foobers Keto meals were easy , delicious and they had heaps of options. Each of which helped US stay on track.
I would strongly recommend there services for anyone.
Good food, crappy service
I have had around 5 orders now with Foober, the first 2 orders arrived on time, the next 3 did not arrive, I had to co ta t customer service via email as they don’t answer the 1300 number, then the order arrives about 2 hours after my email. No explanation or apology. I am extremely doubtful that they would have arrived at all without my email. I’d love to discuss this with them over the phone, but alas they do not answer. Will be switching to Macros for delivery now.
Great menu but too light on the veges.
I really liked the concept but found the meals too small because too lacking in veges. Meat portions were great and tasty but vege portions need to be upped a LOT in order to be filling and nutrient dense. I ended up supplementing meals with a lot less healthy foods.
Food is generally very nice
I ordered for a few weeks - the food is lovely and when I had an issue with an order/ delivery address, it was addressed.
In terms of taste, I would say the best food service I've used to date.
Would recommend if you're vegan as there are some really good food options (vegan corn and zucchini fritters are excellent).
Consumer Beware soggy meals
Absolutely disgusted these meals are soggy just nasty straight into the garbage bin they go (same day of delivery).
This ruined meal plan for the rest of the week, huge waste of time , picking out the meals online ect and my money, being on job seeker after losing my job due to covid -19 a quater of my payment for the fortnight has gone towards this, ill now struggle to have to outlay money for more meals to eat to survive.....
I'll be contacting on Monday as customer service hours seem limited (they deliver but don't work weekends) on how I...can recover my funds... I will not consume as i really don't think they look safe to eat [Irrelevant Material Removed]. There is not a possible way this food was delivered at a safe temperature to eat The same day it was delivered im having to dispose of it in the garbage..... Really not fair.
1 batch of 10 meals and NEVER AGAIN!
1. The food was delivered at my door at 1.35am! Waking my whole family. Deliver driver said it was normal. I was shocked!!
2. Incorrect food Delivered! I ordered 10 meals and they only provided 8 and the wrong meals.
3. I had my first meal and the food was average at best...
Great tasting food and great meal options, disappointing portion sizes and value for money.
As a consumer of many food delivery services in the Melbourne area to date, I decided to give Foober a try. After reading great reviews online, I was excited to try the meals. Generally, I concur with other reviewers online that, the food offered from Foober is great tasting. However, after enquiring online about the portion size of each meal, I found that the portion sizes do fluctuate quite substantially between respective meals. For example the falafel and tahini wrap and Lasagne easily satisfied my appetite. Conversely I found offerings s...uch as the butter chicken and beef stroganoff disappointing and diminutive in size. The breakfasts are the low point of what generally is a great selection of meal options. They are tasty and nutritious, but almost insulting to the consumer in the actual size of each portion for a pricing of $9.95. I feel that in order to compete in a growing convenience market, Foober must increase it's portion sizes considerably. Better offerings out there.
Major IT issues- food not delivered!
Started on keto plan with Foober in July- all was going well until mid October when I did not receive my weeks order, apparently there system cancelled my order, giving them the benefit of doubt I continued with Foober until the same thing happened again 2 weeks later, this really inconvenienced me. First time it happened spoke to there support team who said they will TRY and get good out to me- never happened even though I was willing to still pay for it. Also I have had experiences with them where they have delivered incorrect food to me- onl...y partially. Furthermore on many occasions the window time frame I select for my food to be delivered never arrives within my selection, again inconveniencing me so I have to wait for it in order to refrigerate it. Although food taste great the administration side of things is quite poor and my experience is a clear indication that Foober has major clitches in there IT system!
Watery and weird flavours
I’m really surprised at all the good reviews for these meals.
As a family of five we ordered some to try this past week and - unanimously - we have found them to be just awful. Some were even inedible. Weird flavours and very watery, as if they’ve been frozen and then thawed.
Would never purchase from Foober again. Disappointing and a waste of money.
I would say that some foods are alright while others tend to be really salty where you cant eat it. There variety is pretty scarce, i believe it would be better of they updated/swapped around their menu say every fortnight. Delivery is pretty good though. In terms of costs efficiency i would say it reasonable although be careful when you want to cancel cause they charge you a fee. All in all its ok just lacks in a few areas. In my opinion i would recommend youfoodz over foober any day.
A bit hit and miss
Some of the dishes are delicious, others are not but these things are subjective so try for yourself. Customer service if you ring is excellent, messenger "live chat" is more "slow chat". Can takes minutes to hours for a response. We tried both Keto and Vegetarian food for 2 weeks but there just simply is not enough variety to go a 3rd week. Too, they are expensive and the delivery fee of $15 is a turnoff. Portion size is not too bad. If I were to recommend a dish it would be the Spinach Feta and Ricotta Involtini. Its delicious, there is also eggplant in that dish but for some odd reason it doesn't state that. The chia balls are also very nice.
Foober works but needs more variety and really needs to sort out delivery
I've tried a lot of meal delivery programs, Youfoodz, Odyssey Lean, you name it and Foober does work well in that the meals are reasonably filling and tasty as well as good for weight loss. Unfortunately due to the lack of menu variety, ongoing issues with delivery and broken containers, I stopped using them.
Good customer service, not so good food.
The customer service was great, but I found the food quite average and most of the containers leaked & just dip for a snack doesn’t seem like it is a complete snack... am I meant to buy more to have with it?
Questions & Answers
Do I need a microwave for these meals??
Yes they are heated in microwave for approx just on 2mins depending on your microwave power. It is fresh not frozen. The meals come packed in a sealed container which can be microwaved once you break the seal and remove any additional parts to meal like a sauce to go ontop or a salad and dressing etc.
Hi how do i change my account from weekly to 4 week minimum?
I log in and if I need to alter, I have to do that tomorrow Monday. You have no alterations just submit it. I’ve always done mine weekly and altered one or two items or so. The ordering system isn’t the most clear, I’ve had issues myself when I submit an order, as I am still using this service. If you have any trouble add them on Facebook and send a message via messenger. I’ve always been thankful for the support desk lady who has altered my order or corrected. Hope that helps. But know your not alone in ordering issues on the system. And you can cancel at anytime. Or lock in for discounts.
Do you recycle the packaging and delivery packages?
The cardboard box is recycled, the foil bubble wrap, i kept each week and used it as insulation in my van.
The ice bricks are donated as Ice Bricks to various places , leaving just the recyclable plastic container that go in my recyclable bin.
