Ordering was straight forward, and easily accomplished even for a computer novice. Flying Star's selections were varied and familiar, and had been much missed by this New Mexico ex pat. Communication was excellent. I was particularly impressed by the packaging - the care with which everything was bundled - and the speed of the delivery - less than 24 hours to travel 2500 miles and arrive perfectly intact (and delicious). I heartily recommend any Flying Star selections to fellow Food Explorers - from soup, to, well, dessert!
