10 Foods I had Absolutely No Idea You could Buy Online

Amazon ships, so why not your grocery store?

Where do you go to buy meat or frozen goods? The supermarket right? In 2019 the world is an absolute magical place. Amazon can send packages to your door the next day, so why can’t a grocery store? While I’d most likely prefer to get a look at the food in person, there are tons of online retailers that will send you as much food as you want. Most of them even changed my mind. Now, if you don’t trust an online grocery store, would you trust Amazon? So here it goes, 10 foods I had absolutely no idea I could buy online.


Sushi grade fish online? There are entire vendors designated to selling you whatever sushi ready fish you want, and it can be delivered quickly. Retailers like Giovanni’s fish market can actually ship you sushi grade fish overnight. This ensures freshness, and provides some pretty high quality fish based on the reviews.

Steak & Meat Delivery

I had to put this one on the list, because who doesn’t love a good steak? While I prefer to look at steaks in person, companies like Omaha Steaks have changed my mind. You can even head down to your local retailer before returning home and ordering whatever you like. Buying meat online might not sound great, but from what I’ve seen I might honestly give it a try. Being able to have Meat Delivery directly to your home or office in bulk is amazing!

Ice cream

Now, I figured this was possible, but I also figured it would be something close to an ice cream truck in quality. Boy was I wrong. Online ice cream retailers are actually better than going to the store. This is simply due to the fact that these retailers allow you to customize the flavors you like. No more going up the road just to be disappointed.


The only reason this one makes the list is due to the fact that you can find bagels just about anywhere. But if you don’t live on Long Island, do you really know what a good bagel tastes like? Online bagel retailers allow you to grab a taste of any bagel you’d like.

Cold Cuts

This is one that I was truly shocked about. Usually you have to wait on a long deli line, but Amazon has really made this one too easy. You can order any meat, any cheese, any style, all from Amazon. Crazy right?


I figured this would be an option, but I never saw the use. What if you wanted it tailored to your needs? Well ordering a cake online is honestly ten times better than ordering it in person. You can even send a birthday cake to someone two states over, or even in a different country.


Amazon actually has a section in their online store for fully prepared sandwiches. Deli style. You can actually customize your options, and have it ordered the next day.

Kosher style dishes

You used to have to search everywhere to find good quality kosher food. The grocery store, and delis, were generally the only choice. In this case Amazon also has you covered, and they even provide reviews.

Baby formula

As I was surfing the web for various food items that peaked my interest, I did some digging into some of the more “unique items.” Baby food is one that caught my eye, because it just seems strange to purchase baby formula online. Or is that just me?

Pasta sauce

If your families sauce was not good enough, why not check out Amazon? Any sauce, any style, is available in bulk in their store. No need to slave over the stove for hours when the sauce is already prepared.
