Our Nommli subscription has provided our whole family with a fun and educational experience. It’s a major convenience for nights when we wanted to take a night off cooking. The food has always been a major step up from takeout options and provides more than enough food, occasionally even leaving leftovers for lunch the following day. Many reasons to love Nommli!

The fun thing about Nommli is that there is always something for the kids as well and we are not just exploring one culture but cultures around the world. Because of Nommli, our son took interest in Japanese music, something he can explore further if he chose to
