Experiences Of Online Food Shopping

10.10.2009 · Posted in Food and Beverage Articles

It seems that we can now buy just about anything via the internet and food is no exception. From a simple box of chocolates, to an entire weekly shop, there’s everything available that we might want. But how good is internet food shopping? In this article I discuss some of my own experiences. I consider myself as someone who was relatively quick to embrace the entire concept of shopping online.nnI soon realised that I could send a box of chocolates, or a bouquet of flowers, by using an online florist and that everything seemed so much more convenient. I could see the photos of what I was about to purchase and then place my order in a matter of minutes. But how have I found food shopping via the internet?nnOne of the real positives of shopping in this way is that it can often be much more convenient. I’m not really a fan of supermarket shopping, so I look upon anything that enables me to shop from home as being really positive. That’s not to say that there aren’t issues, however, and you’ll find that it’s never safe to assume that a supermarket worker will pick the same items of item that you had intended them to.nnThere’s no doubt that the postal system can cause problems with some aspects of internet shopping and this can be true when buying food online. One problem is that some items of food won’t keep very well, meaning that there may be limits on what can be ordered and delivered. Bigger items of food may cost more to post, meaning that they will often cost you more and may not represent such good value for money.nnSo what’s the main advantage of shopping for food online? I think that one of the great things about shopping in this way is the fact that you can find specialties that you wouldn’t hope to have otherwise. That means that you don’t have to rely purely on your local shops. This is particularly good news if you’re shopping for a special occasion.
