Looking for special treats to share with your special someone this Valentine’s Day? You don’t have to be a chef to serve up a delicious meal or take a special trip just to scoop up a deep-dish pizza from Chicago or a cheesesteak from Philly. Whatever your regional food of choice, there’s a solid chance you can have it shipped to you from Goldbelly.com, the online food marketplace. And if this is your first time trying the service, you can save $15 off of your first purchase of over $50 when you use the code CNET15 at checkout.
Restaurants, bakeries and other food favorites use Goldbelly to ship their most popular dishes to all 50 states. Is there a native New Yorker on your gift list who’s missing authentic NYC bagels? A southerner whose mouth is watering for hometown barbecue? A Mainer who hasn’t had good lobster since they left their home state? Hop onto Goldbelly and see which restaurants are participating.
Co-founders Joe and Vanessa Ariel list their faves on a page called Joe’s Picks, including the monstrously munchable Piecaken. Like the infamous turducken, which stuffs a boned chicken inside a boned duck inside a partially boned turkey, this dessert combines three different dishes. There’s pecan pie on the bottom, pumpkin pie in the middle, and spice cake plus apple-pie filling on top.
Indecisive? You can also search a regional map to see what’s on offer from different parts of the country. My home state of Minnesota might not seem like a food capital to many, but I’m seriously considering ordering some cheese-stuffed Juicy Lucy burgers from the famed 5-8 Club, or maybe a peanut butter cup sundae kit from my high-school hangout, Bridgeman’s Ice Cream.
Don’t sleep on this scrumptious deal, because this exclusive discount won’t stick around forever.
