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.
I will start with the good things - muffin and donut were yummy and they have responsive chat support :)
I have been on a low carb diet for some time, and the reason foober appealed to me is because they have lots of low-carb/keto options and they all look very good on their website (in real life they don’t look like that).
I thought to give it a try after reading so many positive reviews and ordered 9 meals.
The first one I opened was meant to be a low carb pizza, but I found a low carb burger inside. I was a bit disappointed and messaged t...hem on FB, and they processed a refund very quickly which I was grateful for. The next meal was Pad Thai low carb noodles - tasted ok, but was too salty. I ended drinking litres of water after. I also got super bloated and was in pain all night and morning. The following day I decided to try their lasagna. It had the salad on the side in a little plastic container, and when I opened it that plastic thing was already broken into small pieces and it was inside the salad and on lasagna. I couldn’t eat the salad because I didn’t want to eat any plastic, and had to spend some time trying to take all the plastic out of the lasagna. After I ate it, I got bloated again and had stomachache until the next day. I’m not saying I got poisoning, it’s just my belly reacted pretty bad and usually I don’t have such problems. It could be because they add Erythritol to their meals, and a lot of people are sensitive to it.
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.
Highly unorganised! Some nice some awful. Veggie skimpy.
Late delivery and charges for unmade order. Skimpy on veg, nice variety but some nice some awful. meals leave not hungry as such but not fully satisfied. Veggie skimpy, skip any noodles/ pasta. Solid mass!. Muffins too much bi carb. Any ‘salad’ = 3 wilted leaves and some dead tomato. I see the benefits for convenience but highly expensive for what you get
First week great, but very inconsistent
OK, I've been using Foober for about 6 weeks now, in general the meals are nice, I'm not sure if they have a new customer serving line because the first week all the meals and sizes were amazing but now the serving size and quality can have a big variance week to week, as far as weight loss I haven't achieved much but I haven't been following the meal plan very strictly, one week the snacks didn't arrive, a very simple reply from Foober was here is a refund. If you are trying to follow the plan missing the snacks is a big thing for someone trying to be strict, at the start I was very impressed but now I don't think I would recommend to someone
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.
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).
Tiny serving portions
The food does taste good in most of the dishes I've tried. But the serving sizes fluctuate a lot and in most cases are less than 300g. Which for me is not enough to keep me satisfied until my afternoon snack. I'm always starving after one hour which really doesn't help my diet since I'm scrambling to find something to eat in the office in the afternoons. I tried contacting them on facebook to enquire about it since I was told that the meals were around 350g to 450g and they were clearly lying
Canceled after one month
I was with Foober for one month. I am very dissatisfied with the program and the food. First week everything was great. Second week the chicken was disgusting and no one in my family was wanting me to eat the food. Third week their delivery driver dropped things at a door that no one ever uses so I didn’t know until my neighbor bought it around all hot and stinky. Then week 4 all the food was gross and is in the bin. I cancelled my orders and closed my account the day everything arrived. No thanks.
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.
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?
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
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.
