Okay, so we understand you’re busy. We understand that you tried really hard to get something cool for every single food lover on your list. But then, just like always happens, there was that one person you forgot. Or maybe it was that weird uncle who NEVER gets you anything, but this year decided to buy ugly sweaters for you and your entire family. And now, just to keep everything cool on the home front, you have to get him something, too.
Whatever the reason, if you find yourself in a situation where you need to buy a present for someone and, further, need it to look like you bought it well before Christmas, we here at the Foobooz Store have a solution for you.
Right now, we’re offering an official Foobooz Store apology letter which can ship with any order. In it, we basically take the heat for messing up Christmas–claiming that it was entirely our fault that whatever lovely gift you’ve chosen is shipping late. All you have to do is add this heartfelt letter to your shopping cart in the Foobooz Store and we’ll send out your shipment with an apology, totally taking all the blame for the gift arriving late.
Oh, and better still? The letter is completely free. Happy holidays to one and all.

Last year’s jerky sales came as a surprise to us. We didn’t think you guys would be so into local, boutique jerky. But we sold a lot of it, in fact, we sold out of it within two weeks.
Ladies and gentlemen, the jerky is back. Side Project Jerky comes in two flavors this year: Southwestern and Mongolian, and you’ll only be able to find them in very select stores in Philly, and even fewer stores across the country.
Get it while you can, because if what happened last year happens again, they’ll be gone before you know it.
Take me to the jerky!
We giveth, and we taketh away. Gone are the Industry and Pizza Brain tees. And in their place:
Oyster House tees. Really, really retro Oyster House tees. How retro, you ask? Owner Sam Mink wore it as a child.
We’ve also got some Little Baby’s tees. For the ice cream cult-follower in you.
Through the end of today, the Foobooz Store is offering special gift packs as well as free shipping.
The Foobooz Store has combined some of our best-selling products into bundles and are offering them at a discount.

Books! We’ve got books!
Local Philadelphia photographer (and University of the Arts alum), Dominic Episcopo, has a book of meat, and it’s one of the most visually entertaining books I’ve ever skimmed through. It’s called Meat America, and it includes beautiful depictions of cities, icons, and all things America, done through the eyes of a true carnivore. It’s raw, in your face, witty, and a talking piece to boot. If you want to add something to your Clothbound Cabot Cheese decorated kitchen, maybe add a Meat America 11×14 in. United States of America fine art print.
Oh, and the book is also packaged in styrofoam and plastic wrapped, like ground meat in the supermarket, which is at least 15% of the reason why I like it so much.

For all you youths out there who are obsessed with both food and the internet, have I got something for you.
Jake & Amir could be one of the funniest sketches on the Internet. If you haven’t heard of it, look it up, start with their first video and waste your day away. They’re a hilarious duo, and College Humor is a great site to quench a fit of boredom. Jake, Amir, and Streeter had a live show this past Friday and they hung out at Rittenhouse Square beforehand. They needed some pizza ordering advice, and I offered my assistance, as long as they provided Foobooz with some shameless self-promotion.

There is probably only one place, in all of Philadelphia, that is both a tourist trap and still, forever beloved by the city. Yes, I understand our nation’s history stemmed from Philadelphia, and that’s super important, but if you’ve lived here longer than a year, that magic dies away. Pat’s and Geno’s? South Street? Kind of gross (though I’m starting to believe in South Street again).
But as a tourist destination, more can’t be said about Reading Terminal Market. It’s a highlight on this city’s résumé.
That’s why Foobooz and Bark Tees collaborated to make this piece of tee shirt art. Bark Tees has some pretty awesome Philadelphia-related tees with everything from sports apparel, to Philadelphia landmarks, including Reading Terminal Market.
So if you’re in a different city, maybe you’re at a sporting event, instead of wearing your usual Flyers “shirsey,” rep your city with some creativity and subtlety. Rock the RTM tee.
Because, you know, chicks dig subtlety.
Also new in the Foobooz Store, t-shirts from Pizza Brain and the Industry.
