Ebay and food items

QueenB | Jun 1, 2007 07:19 AM

What food finds have you found on Ebay? I'm always looking to get great items, and have had a lot of success with Ebay auctions I've won.

Here are the following items I've found that are great bargains and great quality on Ebay:

Vanilla beans from Arizona Vanilla Company - both Madagascar and Mexican beans. I ordered Mexican, they sent Madagascar by mistake. I emailed them about it, and they emailed me back promptly, sent new Mexican beans and told me to keep the Madagascar. Great customer service and the beans are wonderful...fragrant, plump and full of beans.

Vanilla beans from Vanilla Products USA - I bought Madagascar and Tahitian. Again, long, fragrant plump beans and for a fraction of the price in the store. I think I ended up spending about 20 or 30 cents per bean.

Valley Nut and Fruit - all sorts of nuts, flavored and not, roasted and raw. Dried fruits too, plenty of them, and all at fantastic prices. I've purchased mixed dried fruit, pine nuts (a steal at 8.95 a pound), and flavored peanuts. All very high quality, flavorful and cheap!

What are some great finds you've found on Ebay? I'm always looking for more!!!
