Fresh Direct (yes, another report)

caterina | Jul 13, 200412:27 PM     6

So I received my first order of fresh direct this past weekend -- and it was truly amazing.

All of our produce has been some of the best I've ever had -- grapes, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, spinach, broccolini, arugala, vidalia onions, etc. we ordered a ton of food and only one thing came sub-par -- 2 red onions. But still, with an order of over $100, with tons of fresh food, thats fine with me.

The thing that has most impressed me though, is the fresh bread. We got a loaf of the multigrain pullman and it is some of the best bread I've ever had. They par-bake it so that when you bake it at home it comes out fresh and soft -- but still five days later it is still much softer and fresher than any loaf I've bought. It is indescribable.

I was wondering what other Fresh-Direct-Made products people had bought and would recommend. Some women in the movie theater, overhearing my raves about fresh direct to a friend, recommended the Pizza -- any thoughts on this? on other prepared foods?

Would love additional insight before I place my next order...
