I made a whole website dedicated to chocolate. People come here to get websites, learn about chocolate history.. and suddenly, they feel the need to go out there and buy a snickers. Sometimes they search on the internet for chocolatiers. There are hundreds of different chocolate-buying websites on the internet, all of which offer great deals and promotions. So if you're in the mood for chocolate and can hold your sweet tooth for a little while, you can find it online.
The trick to buying food online is to look for the best deals and promotions. Some gift websites that offer chocolate can charge you an arm, a leg, and two eyeballs for 4 pieces of chocolate that you won't even get to eat for about 2 weeks! But consider, if you pay too little.. it will taste horrible! Trust me.
A good food delivery site will have many important features. First you want to find someone that has been around for a while. I like Hershey's Gifts. com and Richart Chocolates. Most sites will offer various promotions and coupons for repeat customers. So if you get hooked on their chocolate, it may be cheaper the next batch that you order. What about that FREE shipping? These are misleaders, people. You're paying the shipping already with your over-priced chocolate.
Check out their layout! Do they have an FAQ page? Secured payment? Ingredient information? Also, send them an e-mail and ask them a question. Give them a call. Don't have a question? Make one up! See how fast they respond to e-mails. Check and see if these people will answer the phone if you have a problem with your order. And last, don't order chocolate in the summer! I don't care what kind of insulated packaging they are offering. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Just make sure you take precautions when it comes to food. There are great deals out there and a few duds. So if you're in the mood for chocolate and you would like to have the luxury of having it delivered to your home, order online.
