If indecision is something you experience on a daily basis — especially when it comes to food — Deliveroo wants you to know that it’s here to help. So the food delivery service is launching a new feature called “Try Before You Buy” this week to allow customers torn between meal options to do some in-app sampling before handing over their hard-earned money.

This revolutionary tech, launched in response to frustrated customers who’ve complained about the overwhelming, panic-inducing selection of items on the platform, lets you taste and smell dishes before you hit the checkout button.

That means you can browse through all your favorite menus to get a whiff or sampler of what to expect so you’ll never have to experience food regret again (because the struggle is real).

Everything — from udon bowls and parma ham pizzas to juicy burgers and salmon dons — is available for testing from Apr. 1 at no extra cost.


P.S. Happy April Fools’.
