Gourmet Chocolate Gifts Available at Amazon
Can you buy gourmet chocolate gifts at Amazon? Absolutely! But please pay attention to this simple but critical tip. Buy chocolates sold and fulfilled by the original chocolate makers. Look near the “Add to Cart” button that says “Ships and sold by (seller name)” Doing so can ensure you are buying fresher chocolates. Also, shipping costs may be higher in summer when cold packs are used to keep your chocolates from melting. Shipping costs go down in the cooler fall and winter months. Got it? Okay!

Burgers’ Smokehouse Bacon and Meats Available at Amazon
What could be easier than shopping Burgers’ Smokehouse meats at Amazon? I could take care of my entire gift list by simply sending Burgers’ Colossal Bacon Sampler and everyone would be happy.
Burgers’ Smokehouse in Missouri has been smoking quality meats since 1927. Their bacon is one of their most popular products. Unlike many store-bought bacons that are injected with water, Burgers’ never adds water. Their bacon is dry-cured resulting in a richer flavor, superior texture and minimal shrinkage in the pan. Burgers’ Amazon Storefront offers all their most popular items from smoked bacon, Kansas City Smoked Ribs Barbecue Sampler, and smoked ham and turkey–something for every occasion and everyone on your list.
