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.

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.
Questions & Answers
I have sent an email to info. Asking about low salt or no salt options, my first week on, and I have to say I’m finding it hard to enjoy due to all I can taste is salt.
Hi V, thanks so much for sharing your feedback. Weve averaged salt in our meals to a level where we get minimal negative feedback on there being too much or too little salt. If you can notify us via email of the meals which are tasting salty then i will definitely pass it on to the chef asap.
Thank you for your reply, The dishes that I have found extremely salty are the Frittata, loaded lasagna (was salt loaded), in fact every cooked dish on week one menu,
I find that I need to add a cucumber, hand full of salad leaves or a tomato, otherwise it’s very hard to swallow, all I can taste is Salt.
I hope this is sorted, as I would love to continue to order my meals from Foober, the great news! I have lost 1 kg in the first week, only ten to go!
Can the meals be frozen at all and would this affect the flavour/texture?
Hi Jen, I am a customer of Foober therefore not replying in their behalf but they do say you can frreeze the meals. I haven't so I don't know if it would affect the flavour but I do they are all delicious. Ive tried many others and this is by far the best ever! Cheers
Yes I have frozen several meals - the lasagna in particular was just as good.
I let the salad thaw out at room temperature & eat immediately.
Does Foober only deliver to NSW?
Hi Jen we deliver to Victoria also. Which state are you from?
Perfect! I’m from Victoria. I also have one other question: Are the weight loss meal plans keto? I didn’t do well on a keto diet
Hi Jen, the weight loss plans are mostly calorie based, only the keto plan is keto. The best option for you would be to do the calorie calculator which will recommend the best plan :)
