Snack your way across the globe without leaving the house.
One of the great things about traveling is the discovery of local cuisine. If you ask us, it’s pretty much half of the experience, because just like visiting historical sites and museums, appreciating a place's food means getting a taste of its culture and social values.
You can’t go to Istanbul without taking a long afternoon break with a cup of strong Turkish coffee and some delicious lokum. And if you’ve been to Portugal and haven't tasted a freshly baked pastel de nata paired with a glass of Douro Port wine, then you have missed the quintessential Portuguese dessert (and we suggest you consider going back).
Unfortunately, as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and that includes exotic trips to faraway countries. The next thing you know, you’re back home wishing you could have just one more bite of that local delicacy you used to munch on every day on your South American trip.
Yes, we all know the feeling very well but we also have a solution: Amazon. It’s sometimes easy to forget that as the world’s largest online retailer, you can find pretty much anything on Amazon, and that includes your favorite chocolate-covered alfajores shipped straight to your door from Argentina. Or maybe you are just dying to try authentic Ouma rusks that your friend was raving about after she came back from South Africa. You’re just a few clicks away from them.
And while we’re not saying that getting a box full of those mouth-watering dulce de leche cookies is nearly the same as eating one in a coffee shop in Buenos Aires, it's the next best thing when you’re thousands of miles away.
