Ollie vs. NomNomNow


If you’re considering either Ollie or NomNomNow, you’re probably already aware of the chemicals and preservatives present in commercial dog food (bravo!). While both brands offer human-grade quality dog food and personalized meal plans, they are also quite different. Check out our side-by-side comparison and in-depth review of the two leading dog food meal delivery companies to help you make the best decision for you and your pup!


Started by three dog lovers in Brooklyn, NY, Ollie meals are carefully made and packaged in a human-grade USDA certified facility by skilled technicians, nutritionists, and puppy chefs. Ollie dog food is made with ultra-premium ingredients and personalized to your dog’s breed, activity, weight, and allergies. Cooked at low temperatures using a kettle cooker, Ollie sends all meals to third-party quality testers to check for freshness and taste before packaging them up to be delivered directly to your door. Meals are sent in recyclable, resealable, atmosphere sealed plastic trays, that come with a perfect portion-sized scooper, and are packed into insulated cardboard boxes for insured freshness. Ollie also offers a snack line for extra-hungry pups and donates 1% of its revenue to aid rescue and shelter dogs.

Nom Nom Now

In partnership with Dr. Shmalberg, a veterinary nutritionist, NomNomNow was first founded to combat the health issues of its co-founder’s dog, Harlee. Made fresh weekly, NomNomNow meals use restaurant-quality, hand-inspected ingredients that are gently cooked into four recipes: Heartland Beef Mash, Tasty Turkey Fare, Chicken Chow-Wow, and Porkalicious Pork. Each week, fourteen meals are sent using recyclable packaging and must be stored in the refrigerator or fridge to maximize freshness. Pricing starts at $4/day, and NomNomNow donates 1% to pet nutrition research.

The Verdict

Ollie and NomNomNow both use high-quality ingredients and customize orders to be delivered directly to your door. We were super impressed with both companies, but Ollie narrowly came out on top in a side by side comparison to the NomNomNow. From the human-grade quality food made in small batches at a USDA regulated facility to it’s recyclable packaging – Ollie really did think of it all! I feel so much better since switching to a dog food I can trust, but most importantly I know my pup is feeling better too!

New Packaging Update

Ollie just released their new packaging and it’s pretty great. The old packs used to be bulky and take up a lot of space in your fridge, so they switched to much smaller and denser ones. This means you’ll get more food per box and therefore will have less frequent shipments (huge environmental plus). Portion sizes will be a lot easier to follow with the smaller packs and they’ve also updated their instructions. All in all a good move by Ollie.
