Five On-line Food Shopping Options You Might Like to Try

ShopSmart, the shopping magazine from the publisher of Consumer Reports, suggests  now might be the ideal time to try on-line food shopping.

In a recent Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article, ShopSmart summarized key offerings from five national on-line food retail options.  They all let you browse food categories as you would in store aisles or search by keyword or UPC. The trade-offs: Some sites require a minimum purchase, shipping fees can be steep and most offer only dry goods.

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Amazon.com/​Grocery: best for gourmet items.
  2. Netgrocer.com: best for frozen foods and some fresh produce.
  3. MyBrands.com: best for hard-to-find items not available in most regular stores.
  4. ShopFoodEx.com: best for shopping aisle by aisle like a regular supermarket.
  5. Walmart.com/​cp/​Food/​976759: best for low prices.
