Receiving gourmet food through the mail is one of life's most thrilling and satiating experiences, second only to swimming in a bathtub of pudding lifeguarded by Bill Cosby. Today's Groupon delivers a neat little package of excitement: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet cheese, meat, and gift baskets from igourmet.com. This Groupon's value can be applied toward ground shipping and is also valid on igourmet.com's sale items.
Igourmet.com has been assembling and delivering rare and gourmet culinary treasures for more than a decade. For picnics or picky foodies, the distributor's expansive array of cheeses includes more than 800 varieties hailing from 36 countries. Plan for feasts with a bulk cheese, such as the semisoft Swiss-born bondost wheel ($19.99/2.5-pound wheel), or embrace domestic desires with Fiscalini bandage-wrapped raw-milk California cheddar ($11.99/8 oz.). Meats and seafood light fire to early spring with selections including black truffle-infused chicken sausage made by Les Trois Petits Cochons ($8.99/12 oz.), venison salami sticks from Shaffer Venison Farms Inc. ($5.99/4 oz.), Rastelli Foods' prime soft-shell crab ($39.99/dozen), and presliced oakwood Atlantic smoked salmon from Echo Falls ($10.99/4 oz.).
Hand-packed gift baskets and boxes burst with artfully arranged fruits and vegetables, coffees, and nuts. Ship and savor a sweet selection, such as the ballotin box of chocolates by Michel Cluizel ($35.99), or give a gift that keeps on cooking by procuring pantry items such as the Vermont maple syrup and pancake mix gift box ($19.99). The online eatery also stocks a modest selection of baskets and arrangements armed with the enviable superpower of free shipping.
