Like other delivery services discussed on the Mealfan blog, Splendid Spoon is a meal subscription service. Once you choose a plan, the meals start arriving every week as per the specifications of the plan.
You can choose between four different plans. The lowest-priced plan delivers 5 meals/week, and the top-priced plan delivers as many as 20 meals.
The cost for each meal is about $9. After you zero down on a plan, pick smoothies, grain bowls, soups, and noodles depending on your subscriptions. All meals are delivered chilled, and they’re never frozen.
You get deliveries every Wednesday or Friday of each week:
- For deliveries on Wednesday, place an order by the cutoff time which is 1 p.m. on Thursday.
- For deliveries scheduled on Fridays, the cutoff is 1 p.m. on Sunday.
Splendid Spoon delivers to all 48 states in the USA. Not everyone is on board with the idea of paying for recurring subscriptions.
For everyone who dislikes the subscription fees but still wants meals from time to time, there’s the option of on-demand boxes. These are one-time orders. Pick from different bundles that offer smoothies only, soups and bowls only, wellness shots, or mixed bundles that pick an item from everything.
Also, you can’t call the portions generous but they’re not tiny either. The smoothies contain 16oz fluid. It’s equivalent to two snack portions.
Before you choose any meal, you see the ingredient list and its nutritional information. You can filter the meals for your dietary needs, choose high-fiber foods, and if you’re calorie-conscious, go for low-carb foods.
A few different subscription plans list the meals you’re going to get for the day.
Splendid Spoon meals are vegan, low on sodium, and free of added sugar, sodium or gluten, and soy.
Splendid Spoon offers several choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can use these options to build a customized menu for your dietary needs.
They offer a rotating menu with over 50 different meals and smoothies that you can customize to your liking every week. Don’t want that many? Make a few tweaks to your profile to set filters for ingredients or flavors based on your likes and dislikes.
Breakfast choices include smoothies made of cacao, cherries, almond butter, or avocado with no added sugar.
Lunches are whole grain bowls and proteins like lentils and beans. There’s an assortment of vegetables to pick from.
For dinner, you can pick rice noodles with multiple vegetables and seasonings.
Plus, there’s an interesting concept on Splendid Spoon that doesn’t seem to have caught on with other similar sites – a reset day that has light soups for meals and snacks that you can relish the entire day.
You also get two wellness shots for an extra payment. Order these shots in odd-number packs of 1, 3, or 5.
The meals are prepared in New York and sent to 4 different fulfillment centers across the USA.
How do they keep these ingredients fresh? They flash-freeze soups, noodles, and grain bowls. As a result, they stay fresh for longer. The smoothies can stay refrigerated for up to a month in your home.
Smoothies are refrigerated and shipped with insulation made of recyclable materials.
They always come fresh off the pack. There are very few complaints regarding the freshness or quality of ingredients Splendid Spoon uses.
The meals rotate every week. However, the core focus is on smoothies, soups, and grains.
Splendid Spoon generates recommendations for you based on your profile. This simplifies things. You can change the meals just before the cutoff time. However, if you’re not able to choose a meal or smoothie, you can let Splendid Spoon pick an assortment of smoothies and soups for you.
