NomNomNow Cat Food Review
NomNomNow, Inc is a subscription cat (and dog) food delivery service that is all the rage right now. They not only deliver fully customized meals to your door, but also guarantees to provide human grade, restaurant quality ingredients in every meal.
NomNomNow was created by four co-founders; Alexandria Jarrell, Wenzhe Gao, and brothers Nate and Zach Phillips. In 2015, these four animal lovers began producing and shipping out fresh and healthy meals. As of May 2018, the company started offering cat food.
The company prepares their recipes in a California, FDA compliant, kitchen with the help of board-certified veterinary nutritionist Dr. Justin Shmalberg, who guides recipe creation and production.
How it Works
To get started with NomNomNow, you will create a profile for your pet, which asks you to share their current weight, target weight, and preferred protein. This part is necessary to get a price quote, because portion sizes for each animal will depend on its weight.
Once you are all signed up, you will get a shipment with 14 meal packs of the selected meal choice but you can always go back and change your preferences if you want to try something else. You will be updated on every stage of your delivery via email as well as provided tracking information. The first box also includes fun treats, like a bag of chicken jerky.
Once you’ve selected your cats meal plan, you will receive monthly shipments of 56 individual packets of food, which will arrive boxed fresh with ice packs to keep it cool. The packets should be stored in the freezer and removed in small batches to thaw in the fridge.
What’s in the Box?
The first shipment arrived safe in a heavy-duty brown shipping box with the company’s logo on the side. A message on the box recommends refrigerating the contents as soon as possible. Our trial order contained 14 meal packs of the Chicken Chow-Wow recipe and the Flavorful Fresh Fish recipe. The food was safely wrapped up between two large reusable gel ice packs and a thick insulating liner made of 100% recyclable PET. Everything was nice and cold inside but should be refrigerated as soon as possible. The packaging also states that you should use or freeze the food packets within 8 days of receiving them. There was a detailed information booklet, recommended servings brochure and feeding magnet inside. Also included with the order was a bag of chicken jerky, a flavor packet and a container of beef broth.
