Subject: RE: [DenverAndBeyondVeganMeetup] TODAY - Living Social Deal on Delivered Vegan Meals
Healthy Chef Express will make vegan meals that are good. I actually just had them deliver meals to my boyfriend, who isn’t always easy to please. Yesterday was a seitan dish. They aren’t a vegan company but so far, we’ve enjoyed the vegan meals they make. I had dinners delivered Monday-Thursday for roughly $72 dollars. You can choose when you want it delivered. Periodically they offer deals on Groupon too.
DONT DO IT!!! I have not only heard from many people that this food is basically inedible, but I know for a fact they have atrocious customer service. If I was going to use any vegan food service, it would definitely be Fresh n Lean. Im not sure how Gobble Green is still in business.
Here is my Yelp review of Gobble Green:
was so excited to try gobble green!! it seemed like a dream come true: healthy vegan calorie-controlled meals that i didnt have to make!
gobble green is rightly expensive, but they offer the option of splitting the cost into two payments each month. they said to email them in order to set this up. i emailed them on thursday. they said they would reply within 24 hours. in 24 hours there was still no reply, so i emailed them again and asked if they had received my previous email. i thought that maybe it had accidentally gone into their spam folder. still no reply. so on saturday i called them, hoping *maybe* theyd be open. they werent, but a lot of places are closed on saturday. i called again on monday. again i got an answering machine. it said to leave a message and theyd get back to me in 24 hours. so i left a message, said i had previously sent them two emails, was excited to try their product, gave them my phone number, etc. 24 hours later, still no response. i even left a message on their facebook page, which they seem to update regularly, and nothing.
i wish this review could be about how good or bad gobble green's food was, but i havent even been able to try the food because no one will respond to me. i was planning to spend $700 a month and youd think they would want the business, but apparently not. luckily i found another vegan meal delivery service with great customer service and ordered from them.
as a vegan i want vegan businesses to do well and i tried to give this one a chance, but it just didnt pan out. :(
I learned about this place via Living Social. I thought I was getting a deal by purchasing 7 days worth of vegan meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner dessert) for 7 days for $129! I was so excited because that meant I didn't have to cook for myself for a week, yooo hooo! I placed my order as instructed per the voucher. Maybe about 3 weeks later I contacted them via email to find out when might I receive my order and was made to feel less then human for using a voucher, huh? The customer service was horrible and the food was gross!!!! Let me repeat it again, the food was disgusting. Anything that was made with tofu/seitan tasted like flour cubes. It was seasonless and tasteless. I threw all except the dessert away. If you don't believe me, order from them yourselves. Maybe your experience will be better **rolling eyes**. However, for me, it was a waste of $130! I could have had a new bag or shoes for that amount!
So shines a good deed in a weary world.

Has anyone had any experience with meals delivered by Gobble Green? Today, there is a 2 day deal offered on Living Social and you get 7 days of Vegan or Gluten-Free Meals delivered to your door for $129 (51% savings)? Was wondering if anyone knows anything about this company in California?
