Would You Order Food From Across the Country?

Recently, philleif surprised the office with a box from Zabar's. He's recently moved from New York and had a hankering for their fresh lox and bagels. I was lucky enough to grab a taste (thanks again philleif!), but it got me wondering, would you order food from across the country?

Devil Dogs! Stella D'oro! My husband and I are very lucky to have Boar's Head in Indianapolis, but I had my mom send me Annie's mac 'n cheese for years until I begged for it here (before I started making homemade mac'ncheese)My husband would definitely have Zabar's shipped here if he knew he could. We miss New York most weeks!

I order Nokkelost cheese from New york every holiday, its a norwegian cheese flavored with Cumin,caraway seeds and cloves. Semi-hard and yellow, made from cows milk. Expensive but its my childhood on a cracker. Right now i can get it from for 12.95 a pound plus shipping. I have also ordered food that i have seen on the deen boys show.

If you can get it, why not. Otherwise, if I plan a trip to that place, I would just buy tons of it and stuff it in my suitcase.

I'd need to want something pretty bad to order it from so far.

I would have something special shipped. It's pricey, but if you have that craving, or it's for an event it would be worth it.

I really miss NJ food, so I've looked into getting some stuff shipped. Some of it (pork roll!) I've found after questing a bit, and some (Surf Taco!) can't really be mailed. Christmas is going to be filled with stuffing my face with diner food and Surf Taco and Wawa, mmmmm. (Not that I hate the South. They have BBQ like we had diners! It almost makes up for the lack of disco fries.)

I order the best pecan pie I have ever tasted from River Street Sweets in Savannah Georgia. Pricey, but worth it!

I will occasionally order local specialties, like jars of olive salad from New Orleans, that I can't get here. I don't think I'd order fresh food though.

Is it reliable to order online?

Of course- I miss my east coast food! I order both Dunkin Donuts and Wawa coffee online and my mom regularly ships me salt bagels and Herr's Pretzels. I've also been known to FedEx cupcakes from this side to my best bud in NY. :)

I order food online all of the time. It's usually for members of my family on special occasions and items that they can't get where they live (Vermont maple syrup, fresh lobster or blueberries from Maine). I did once order a turducken from a place in New Orleans a few years back. It was fun, but I've now satisfied my urge to try turducken and won't do that again. :pepino:

Would and have. Right now, the only place for me to find my favorite Irish Steak sauce is a company based across the country. If the local markets stop carrying my Irish oatmeal, I'll be getting that too.

Zabar's is certainly worth ordering from! When we lived in Texas, I used to order shrimp from South Carolina because I didn't like the taste of gulf shrimp. So my answer is a resounding 'YES'! Order away!

I'd order across the Atlantic if were possible.
