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.
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).
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.
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?
I'm eating the keto range and everything I have had tastes amazing except for the chicken cattitore....Foober you need to use breast chicken instead of the drumsticks. The tendons b edcome quite chewy. I was surprised you actually used that cut of the chicken
Think twice before you commit
The food is pretty hit and miss. To be fair, we did enjoy about half of them. The other half were not enjoyable, they just weren't tasty or too tasty (e.g. very coconut-y, extremely salty, too sweet but I get it, everyone has different tastes so we were willing to keep going). The service however, is extremely lacking. Despite taking a fair bit of time to make changes to my meals, they still sent the standard meal plan resulting in about six meals being thrown away. Customer service then proceeded to tell me that it was me, that perhaps the cha...nges I made didn't come through even though I received a confirmation email with the list of meals and had already told them that. After 18 minutes of back and forth (so unnecessary especially with the confirmation plus I had already sent a detailed message prior to tell them what the issue was), I eventually got a refund for the six meals, which is a positive but doesn't take away the frustration and hassle of having to replace these meals. And the snacks... At $2 a pop, you certainly don't expect to receive dips. I mean, what am I meant to do with a dip (obviously buy something to dip into it but that defeats the purpose of a complete meal delivery no?). When I asked, the response was, you can change it in future (funny, they thought there'd be a future) if you like but our customers love it. Really? I do wonder if they're not listed on Google for fear of real reviewers telling it like it is.
Filling portions and tasty but sometimes a bit too salty, accurate delivery times.
The food is mostly good but the taste can be inconsistent. Most meals are good but some dishes are too salty like the Mongolia beef with cauliflower fried rice. Only concern is that the menu doesn't seem to change. The portion sizes are filling as well.
Questions & Answers
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.
Hi, can we please see full nutritional information? I want to see sodium levels per 100g for every meal. This information is usually available on many other websites. Also what is the weight of each meal?
Does Foober use artificial preservatives , margarines and vegetable oils?
No not at all. Just the way they seal holds the shelf life
