Amazon extends food offerings

Food and snacks section extended

Amazon.com, the one-time US bookseller, is extending the range of food it offers.

Hidden away in the Health and Personal Care section of Amazon.com is a large selection of snacks and other foods. Cunning place to hide the snacks...in the diet food section. These include multi-packs of cereals, beef jerky and granola, assorted cookies and elk tamales.

Browsers not sated by the snacks on offer can head over to Gourmet Food which has a range of wonderous foodstuffs including chocolate, seafood, gourmet cheese, meat, game and pates.

According to the FT Amazon.com is offering free shipping on most orders over $25, but be warned that Register researchers discovered the ground buffalo meat is not covered by this offer.

Amazon claims 32 product categories from books, where it all began, to Home & Garden, Outdoor Living and Automotive.

Surfers keen to hunt their own food can buy catapults, crossbows, throwing stars and even a "sleek red assassin ninja sword".®
