    Default general food question

    not totally related to diabetic but i am interested in your thoughts here.

    we live in a very rural area, the DH is currently experienceing a back flare
    up, I am wondering if any of the sites on line that sell food are worth
    looking at, i want quality, i want reliable, if it gets to the house i can
    get it in and put away, and i would like the most economical ones possible,
    if we do this it will save going out in the cold and dh being on his feet
    for an extended period of time but i have no idea besides what little i have
    looked on amazon as to reliable food sites

    all comments welcome, Lee

    Mostly what food I buy online would be of no interest to you because it's
    allergen free. And not cheap. I've bought some stuff at Amazon and some at
    Drugstore.

    I was really surprised to get both good selection and good
    service from walmart.com. They have a big internet-order
    business, you might give them a try.

    They have a $45. minimum order for free shipping to home.
    The delivery service was a bit weird (I ordered 5 cans of
    Juanita's Menudo, they sent one can with two batches of
    socks, then 4 cans by themselves in a later shipment) but
    everything arrived in good form, a bit slower than Amazon
    but the food selection is much more wide-ranging. I had
    no problem bulking up the food order to reach the free ship
    limit. Here is their shipping page and it links into the other
    stuff: http://www.walmart.com/cp/Free-Shipping/1088989
    I would have no qualms about ordering again from them.

    When I ordered there were no shipping charges at all but I think that was a
    promo.

    i was just discussing fruits with a df, we couldn't find fresh figs, and the
    dates, were dried, but felt through the package, to me weren't right in a
    way i can't explain... she happened onto apricots dried in sams on the
    clearance rack no less... she put them in port wine and waited, says they
    are wonderful, Lee
