Mail order or online food purchases

Do you order food products from online stores or through catalogues?
What do you order and from where? What's so special about the food or the merchant?
How far would you go to obtain that food?
For exameple, I have a friend who tasted ice cream at a small dairy farm when she was travelling in Vermont and she thought that it was the best tasting ice cream so when she came home, she looked for a way to order the ice cream to her home in NYC. She ended up paying a huge amount of shipping and handling fee to get the ice cream..I personally would never spend more on the shipping than the food but I guess it depends on how much you crave it....like the wife in the book, Rapunzel.
But I've been dying to eat that delicious chocolate I had in France and been itching to order from them...I suppose it's still cheaper than going to France.
