Guess what pulled into my driveway last week? You got it. A Schwan's truck! And, no, they didn't have the wrong address, I actually did request a delivery! How could I pass up food delivered right to your door?
Let me tell you, this truck was huge. I don't know what I was expecting but there was no missing this delivery!
Are you curious as to what I ordered?
It wasn't an appetizer, though I was tempted to order their Zesty Jalapeno Bites or Cheddar and Bacon Potato Skins! It wasn't an entree, although the Chicken Alfredo Rigatoni or Prime Rib Shepherd's Pie would be perfect to order when there is a new baby in the house and there isn't any time to prepare a good home cooked meal! So, that leaves the desserts. The pies and cakes looked amazing, but I went ahead and stuck with the simplicity of good old fashioned ice-cream! Each one of my children got to pick out a flavor of their choice, and I have to say, the frozen goodness is almost gone!
You can't go wrong with ice-cream!
How it works is, you first head over to the Schwan's online grocery website. Once you've perused through their vast variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts, you place your order. When you place your order you can see when the next scheduled delivery date is for your area. Where I live, Schwan's delivers every two weeks but it may be different in other areas. My delivery time was on a Friday between 1-3 so I had to be sure to be home then since I did order ice-cream! (Not something I want sitting out on my front porch).
I paid online but the tax said that it was only an estimated amount so when the delivery woman came, I still owed nine cents, so be sure to have some change on hand just in case even if you did pay online, (good thing it was only nine cents!) Or, you can choose to pay when they arrive if you aren't comfortable giving your information over the Internet. Either way, when the delivery woman comes she will go over your order and then share with you any deals that they are currently running.
Once you confirm your order she will find your goodies in the truck, my daughter loved this part, since she doesn't frequent the typical ice-cream truck, this was the closest thing!
Having food delivered to your door isn't for the future! It's always good to have extra meals in the freezer for those days you just don't have the time or energy to prepare a meal for your family. Schwan's provides a wide variety of meals, snacks and desserts that can be a fun treat on occasion!
