FAQ

Who does the cooking?

You’ll find Charlie and Sam at Stocked HQ making sure each block is as delicious as the last. We cook each dish in small batches using fresh ingredients, just like you would at home.

Where do you source your ingredients from?

We use only British meat from reputable and certified suppliers. Our vegetables come from All Greens, who are based out of New Covent Garden Market.

How big are the Blocks?

Our Blocks are approximately 79mm x 29mm x 30mm and weigh 70g.

Do I have to use the Blocks in your supplied recipes?

No! You can do whatever works for you. All of our dishes are developed so they can be eaten on their own or with a very simple accompaniment. Our supplied recipes are there to give you some inspiration and show you just how much you can do with Stocked.

Do I have to keep the Blocks in the freezer?

Yes please! Our food is designed to be heated straight from frozen, either in the microwave or on the hob. Once you’ve reheated your Stocked Blocks, please don’t refreeze them.

How long do the Blocks last in the freezer?

Our Blocks will last for at least 3 months in your freezer. You may experience some “freezer burn” during this time. This is just a visual discolouration and is perfectly safe. Our Blocks will be as delicious as ever.

How many Blocks do I use in a portion?

That’s totally up to you! We want to put portion control back in your hands and give you the freedom to choose exactly how, and how much you eat. 4 Blocks are comparable in weight to a supermarket ready meal but most of our recipes use less than this to feed 1 person. Check them out here for inspiration and get experimenting in the kitchen.

Are any of the Blocks vegan?

50% of our range is plant based! We don’t currently have a classified vegan kitchen but we can assure you that they contain no animal products and the utmost care is taken to avoid cross-contamination in the kitchen.

How does your delivery work?

We use DPD to deliver our Blocks to your door. This is a carbon neutral, next day delivery service. Your order will be delivered on Wednesday between 8am and 6pm. Get your orders in by 11am Monday to guarantee delivery that week. It will be well insulated to stay frozen in transit, but we recommend you are in to receive the delivery to pop your packs straight in the freezer and best preserve the quality of the Blocks.

Is delivery free?

Yes! Delivery is included in the price of your order so what you see is what you pay.

Is your packaging recyclable?

We use a range of different materials to pack your Blocks in and get them to you still frozen.

Currently, our packs are made from PET plastic and are not recyclable. We have found this is the best way to prolong the life of your Blocks and avoid unnecessary food waste. We are working on a fully recyclable solution.

Our delivery boxes are fully kerbside recyclable or reusable if you’ve got a house move coming up, or a cat that needs a new bed. The cardboard is sustainably sourced and printed in the UK with water based inks.

Our denim liners are made by upcycling the waste from the denim industry. We love them as they utilise materials that would otherwise have ended up in the bin. They are fully reusable and vegan friendly. We are looking into options for recyclable and compostable insulation.

Will you be selling any different dishes in the future?

You better believe it! We have lots of tasty plans in the works but we’d love to hear from you about what you would like to see. Drop us a message on our contact form with your suggestions.

Are your meals nutritionally balanced?

We develop our dishes to be packed with flavour and to be the base for a variety of different meals. They are full of nutrients and you can find out exactly what is in them on our product pages. We recommend using them alongside some other fresh ingredients to create delicious, balanced meals.

Do you do a subscription service?

Yes we do! You have the option to subscribe during the box building process. Not only do you save money when you subscribe, you become eligible for a handful of other great perks as well.

Can I eat the Blocks like a saucy lollipop?

Tempting as that may be, we strongly advise against this. You should ensure the food is piping hot before you eat it.
