Someone delivered frozen foods to my front door yesterday, and I didn’t have to get close to him at all. No money exchanged hands, and we were both happy to see each other. And we stayed more than six feet apart.
For more than a decade, a nice guy in a red shirt has been delivering food to my door every two weeks. I’ve had several different Schwan’s guys in that time – and one Schwan’s woman – deliver yummy frozen food, mainly ice cream right to my door.
The convenience of those visits I never truly appreciated until now, when I’m stuck in the house, wracked with anxiety about leaving – even to go to the grocery store – and trying to feed five kids three meals a day and the many snacks they’ve been asking for in between.
Schwan’s has actually been around for 68 years. I can remember my grandmother always had a Schwan’s delivery and kept her freezer full of ice cream treats like push pops and fudge sickles so we could cool down while we summered at her pool in Whitehall.
Right now, Schwan’s employees are following precautions to keep customers and team members safe, like limiting high-touch interactions like handshakes or entering homes and maintaining a safe distance at drop offs.
If you order online, the company will deliver to your doorstep without interacting face-to-face with anyone, which is what I did yesterday.
And they don’t just have ice cream. Schwan’s has all kinds of meats, steak, fish, chicken, veggies, fruits and more. Even bacon. But sorry, no toilet paper.
You can find out more at Schwans.com. If you decide to buy, try the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. Those are my kids’ favorite.
