5 Comfort Foods to Help You Beat the Winter Chill

The first day of winter for 2017 is December 21st but if you are reading this then, we imagine it’s already pretty cold wherever you are. If you struggle to make it through a day without cuddling under a blanket or blasting a space heater a foot away from your face, we sympathize!

When the temperatures start dipping, it can be easy to hide away and do your best to avoid it. Don’t let winter weather get the better of you. Conquer the cold with some of these toasty foods delivered to your door that will keep you warm and power you through the chill.

1. The Old Classic

Grandma's Chicken SoupThis one might seem a little obvious but it never fails! Grandma’s Chicken Soup knows exactly what you need and it delivers (Well, we deliver but, you get the point). Grandma’s Chicken Soup is exactly like grandma used to make it, just upgraded. Grade-A chicken, fresh carrots, celery, and onion simmered for hours all make for a delicious combination. The half-gallon should be enough to sustain you for a while.

2. A Casserole of Pizza

While not exactly a traditional comfort food, pizza comforts us and we’d prefer you didn’t judge us. Everyone loves pizza and we bet that it probably makes you feel comforted too. Chicago-style pizza might seem like a regular old pizza but it’s so much more than that. This order from Bartolini’s in Chicago isn’t just one pizza – it’s three! Have one for now, one for later, and… another one for later.

3. Cheese-Stuffed Pockets of Comfort

Raffetto's RavioliBorn from a centuries-old recipe using durum flour, fresh whole eggs, and water, Raffetto’s Ravioli Custom 3-Pack is the perfect thing to warm you up when you want something flavorful and tasty to help you forget that it’s 20 degrees outside and snowing.

4. Pretend You’re Elsewhere


The best way to beat the winter blues is to pretend you’re somewhere else. All you’ll need to do this is an order of Woops! Macarons and a stylish beret. One bite of these flavored delicacies and you’ll be sipping a coffee on the Seine while people on bicycles pass you by. If that doesn’t work, we don’t know what else will!

5. Bathe in BBQ

You can’t find anything quite like authentic southern barbecue. The flavorful dry rubs, the sweet sauces, the fall-off-the-bone ribs – our mouths are watering just thinking about it! This Black’s Texas BBQ Sampler straight from Lockhart, TX is the perfect all-in-one package. Brisket, spare ribs, and three types of homemade sausage? What more could you ask for?

Winter is tough! We understand. There’s no better way to keep the winter blues away than with delicious food delivered right to your door from some of the best restaurants around the country.
