I have bought non-perishable groceries online since the advent of the internet. It’s great to be able to shop any time of night from the convenience of your home and finding exactly what you want – especially exotic or unusual items that might not be available in your own local grocery store. Whether you are searching for an Asian sauce or vegetarian ingredient, it is not only a thrill to find an exciting product available at your fingertips online, it is an added bonus to be able to buy at a discount and in bulk. Move over Sam’s Club and Costco, because Amazon.com groceries is now carving another place in online history.
Amazon.com, has thrown its hat in the ring with a double punch in online grocery shopping. They offer More than 14,000 non-perishable items to choose from, and their selections grow daily. The double punch is that you can buy items in bulk at a discount and not have to pay a yearly membership fee like most bricks and mortar discount stores AND you can buy product sizes and quantity packs not available in most local grocery stores. Additionally, shopping for exotic, Asian and vegetarian groceries has become a pleasurable experience. No waiting on cashier lines, no coupons to carry in your hand and you get to read the ingredients and product information without having to squint in the grocery aisle as you block other shoppers. Not only can you shop in the privacy of your home, you don’t have to bag your groceries and wheel your groceries to your car.
Amazon also gives free super-saver shipping on orders of $25 or more. In addition to that, you save sales tax and there are often online coupon codes for added discounts on special purchases. This is great news for cooks, exotic chefs, vegetarians and people who love Asian cuisine.
Amazon carries a line of vegetarian and soy and tofu based products made by Worthington and Loma Linda. Veggie burgers in a can, vegetarian meatless franks and other great staple ingredients for vegetarian meals. Vegetarians can choose from a large variety of name brand products from flax and protein bars, to vegetable based seasonings and meal mixes, to organic hemp powder, gravy, protein chips, snack foods, candy, lasagna chips, vitamin supplements, herbal teas, ready to eat Indian and Asian meals and much much more. Brands range from Wild Oats, Mother’s, Annie Chuns, Sunridge Farms, Worthington, Ruth’s Organic Hemp Foods, Santa Fe bean Company, A Taste of Thai, Thai Pavillion, Bali Spice, Ka-Me, and much much more.
Asian and vegetarian products are generally sold and priced by the case on Amazon.com, which offers you a great savings. Additionally, some of the individual package sizes may be restaurant size, which also gives you a savings discount you wouldn’t receive when you pay for smaller sized individual packaging.
And while you are shopping for discounted vegetarian and Asian groceries on Amazon, you can also pick up discounts on other non-edible items from organic shampoos and other personal health care products. The beauty of the online Amazon.com grocery shopping online experience is you could never find this kind of selection in any of your local ethnic stores or large discount warehouses. As a result you have a much larger inventory selection and you also get the benefit of reading online customer reviews.
I have always enjoyed shopping Amazon.com from electronics to kitchenware to pet and household products to books and appliances, and now with the introduction of groceries which include vegetarian and exotic and Asian and ethnic foods, I am more likely to shop Amazon.com online for the best selection and discount prices and coupon deals than any other site. It is always my first stop before looking somewhere else. Amazon.com usually turns out to have the best deal and that coupled with great customer service, and easy user friendly shopping interface, and a friendly return policy makes Amazon.com 5 stars when it comes to shopping online. Amazon.com groceries has just catapulted this awesome company to the next level. After years of shopping many online grocery stores, I now count Amazon as number 1 in my book both for price and selection of Asian and exotic and ethnic and vegetarian products and grocery items. Bravo.
