6 winning Super Bowl mail-order eats? Touchdown!
The Super Bowl is right around the corner. I'm not a football fan, but I am definitely a fan of game day eats. If you are, too, you'll be happy to know that some of the best makers of classic game day foods--from burgers to wings, hot dogs to BBQ--now deliver via mail order.
Check out these 6 purveyors of the best Super Bowl party foods in the nation. No matter where you live, you can order up, sit back and enjoy the game. Or just the commercials, like me. -Stacie
My favorite mail-order option (above) is an amazing selection of
pork put together by the genius food curators at Gilt Taste. The very
generous folks there have put together a sale from Pig of the Month BBQ
that includes pulled pork and fixings, ribs and more. The only drawback? The sale ends after this weekend. HURRY!
buffalo wings, how I love you so. Sadly, I've yet to find a mail-order
source for organic, ethically raised buffalo chicken wings (your choice:
laugh at me or thank me for the new business idea). The good news is
that Duff's famous wings
be shipped to you straight from wing mecca Buffalo, NY. Commercial
break trivia bonus: These babies helped Duff's win on an episode of the
Travel Channel's Food Wars
there was ever a time to give healthier buffalo meat a try, the Super
Bowl is it. I can't tell you why I think that, but I'm confident about
it! Wild Idea Buffalo Co
their grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free, humanely raised buffalo
nationwide. I'm thinking of giving the burgers or uncured, smoked
Kielbasa a try, but it's hard to choose with so many options! Now, if
they'd only make grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free, humanely
raised buffalo wings.
If you're looking for pastrami or any other deli food, look no further than Katz's Deli
on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, NY. This landmark is a personal
favorite of mine--and pretty much a favorite of nearly every New Yorker.
You don't have to live in the Big Apple to be a fan, though, since they
deliver nationwide. Buy a la carte, or indulge in their Sunday Football Package
for $89 (I'd say this serves 8-10).
In more of a Chicago state of mind? Head on over to Taste of Chicago
some hardcore football food favorites including Italian beef, deep dish
pizzas and Vienna Beef hot franks. If, like me, perusing this site is
dangerous business, you may want to head straight to the section
specifically for football eats
but far from least, I've got an unexpected option that you should bet
on: handmade New Zealand-style gourmet meat pies from Dub Pies
. I'm a
fan of Dub Pies and used to think I was soooo lucky that they were
headquartered in NYC. Now you're lucky, too, because they ship
overnight. On more than one occasion (many more), these pies have been
the only non-homemade thing I've served at one of my parties. These
delicious, hand-held pies may originate in New Zealand, but they are
about as perfect an American football food as I can imagine.
