An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

FreshDirect to my heart


FreshDirect is one of the big groceries-delivered-to-your-home services in the US. I’ve only ever used it in New York as I was an early and loyal Peapod customer while living in DC. FD seems a little fancier than Peapod (which was run in conjunction with big grocery chain Giant) as they don’t carry a lot of products I wanted like Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, but they’ve got seltzer and really, that’s all I need to keep going.

Fresh Direct


  • 2 flats of seltzer (24 total liters)
  • 32 cans Coke Zero
  • 3 large boxes plain Cheerios
  • 1 large box Rice Chex
  • 1 cinnamon Pop-Tarts
  • 1 Honey Maid cinnamon graham crackers
  • 2 Reduced Fat Wheat Thins

I'm an American Spaniard, living in France. I like to tell stories.

  1. Are you bringing all this back to Paris? That will be heavy in your suitcase…

    We also have a list of stuff we want to buy when we get home for the holiday seasons. We have to ensure that there is sufficient space in our suitcases for the return trip!!! (Suzanne)

    • You don’t know how right you are. I drank all the liquids and ate most of the food but the rest of it did not make it into the suitcase and I am very sad about it. The problem with traveling in winter is how much space winter clothes take up and, sadly, a sweater will earn a spot over a graham cracker every time. (I’m still hoping to get them mailed to me though.)

  2. I wonder when they’ll introduce this to Norway.

    • There must be a local grocery chain that offers delivery in Norway! I imagine that you guys are way more technologically advanced than us southern Europeans and they even offered on-line shopping in Spain at the big chains.
