I know most of you avoid advertisements on line through ad-blockers or memberships or whatever, but as I have posted, I actually like seeing the advertisements (they are often hilarious) so I let the internet wash over me, not filtered exactly but presumably algorithmically tailored to my tastes.
…did I say TASTE? Because for quite a while now, I have been deluged with adverts for Goldbelly, which I ignored until today, when my fascination with their often-dizzyingly-unhealthy-yet-undeniably-delicious-looking food photos made me stop and ask, “okay, who the hell are these people?”
Huh. It actually seems they have a defensible business model, helping small businesses (restaurants and small shops) to sell their goodies more widely, on line. But since I’m in Hawai’i, I figured … “nah, not for me; either the stuff they offer won’t ship to Hawai’i, or the shipping would be so insanely expensive that it wouldn’t be worth it.”
While that is probably true, they do claim to ship to all 50 states and they let you shop for products regionally, so out of curiosity I looked at their Hawai’i products. For the most part, I wouldn’t buy any Hawai’i products from them, since I can do better on price, what with living here and all…but their Maui Gold pineapples are actually offered at a pretty good price (I just don’t know what I’d do with 8 pineapples).
Has anyone else looked into them? Do you recommend any products from your region, based on a combination of deliciousness and price?
