Amazon- What Would You Buy?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy some food on amazon, but I don't want to get everything in 6 or 12 packs. I don't want 6 cake mixes...lol. So, does anyone know how to order things on there without getting everything in bulk?

My next question is what would you buy if you could get ANYTHING (making sure it's dairy/casein free and peanut free) what would it be? I also want things that travel well because I am going out of town at the end of the month and need to bring my own food. Thanks for ideas!

Kassandra

Note- Since this is my first experiment trial I am willing to spend a bit of money since I am not really happy with the gluten-free selection at nearby healthfood stores.

If I had the $$ I would order one of these cakes or cheesecakes from amazon. They are made by a bountiful harvest. They look like they are WONDERFUL!! The cakes are almost $60 hehe :lol: Gawd I'd love to sit down with a fork and eat one hahhaa :lol::lol:

I'll think of some more practical things to order in a few min. right now I'm surveying these cakes and drooling . I'll get back to you ;)

There are other places online that you can order from. Amazon is no longer my first choice for anything. I've had trouble getting things in a timely fashion from them and if I need to return something it can take up to 3 months to get the refund. If you order now, you may not get that food by the end of the month, even if it says the item is in stock and ready to ship. I used to order a lot from them but lately have had a lot of trouble. I did just get a pan that I ordered and it only took 3 days. But other orders took a long time to get or I never got them at all.

Bountiful Harvest is the next city over from me. I've had the cheesecake and it IS as good as it looks. If you like sweets once in a while and don't want to bake that might be a good way to spend your money. You can portion it up and freeze single servings.

The only time I've ever had delays in shipping from Amazon is when I use the "Super Saver Free Shipping" option on orders over $25. When you do that, they combine it all into one order and if something isn't available yet, they hold the order up until it is all ready to go. Hence, one order was held up until the book I also ordered was released 3 weeks later. Basically, it requires me to pay attention to what's available and when if I want the free shipping. If I'm willing to pay for shipping, they split it into separate packages and I've always received everything promptly.

I've also not had a problem with returns. I think that depends on who you are dealing with, Amazon or a vendor that uses Amazon as a store front. The Fast and Fresh products are sold through Amazon but shipped from Fast and Fresh so any problems with the order are resolved with Fast and Fresh (although Amazon asked me to contact them if I wasn't satisfied). But I had a great experience with Fast and Fresh resolving my order by shipping the remainder of it overnight at no extra charge.

I've seen individual mixes sold at Amazon but I buy in bulk. Things I order are:

  • Lunberg RiceXpress, Chicken Herb and SanteFe Grill flavors
  • GFP bread mixes
  • Pamela's bread mix
  • Namaste Spice Cake mix
  • Fast and Fresh products (burger buns, pizza crust, etc)

I do a lot of mail order and Amazon is my favorite vendor because they have a consistent stated policy. I've been dealing with them for years and they always resolve any issues, even when the issue is that I didn't notice something wasn't available when I ordered and now I want to know where my stuff is.

If money were no object, I would have tried the gluten-free chocolate croissants from France I saw on there recently.

I get a lot from this site, Miss Roben's, and Ener-G and Road's End Organics. I am lucky though. My health food store stocks a lot of gluten free stuff so I also buy a lot from them.

I live in Los Angeles, so there are about 5 Whole Foods within 30 minutes of me. But, I like one thing from one store and a different thing from another, etc. so it can get annoying. Has anyone tried the EnerG tapioca bread? Is it any good? If not, what is a good bread?

I buy the Mrs. May's in bulk- pumpkin crunch is my favorite, sunflower least favorite but my hubby likes that one. I also really like the Oskri coconut bars because they seem to fill me up if I eat one as a snack in the middle of the day. Right now I have the mango ones which are good but they have other flavors too. Both of those items travel really good. I'm going to check out the cheesecake and drool myself....
