Joe's Kansas City BBQ Z-Man kit
You can (and should) consider shipping yourself (or a lucky friend) some ribs as well, but when a legendary BBQ joint sends you a painstakingly precise kit to help you execute their iconic sandwich, the effort simply must be recognized.
Rebecca Ruth bourbon balls
You can by bourbon balls (think delightful chocolate covered truffles with a kick of bourbon) from many Kentucky purveyors, including some of the big distilleries, and have yourself a fine time, as it's hard to screw up booze, sugar, and chocolate. But these little beauties are the original, first created in 1936. You can taste the history. Or maybe it's just the bourbon, but whatever they're really good.
Central Grocery muffuletta
A massive Sicilian sandwich that packs an army of cured meats, tapenade, and cheese onto a dense, sesame-seed loaf, the muffuletta is as synonymous with NOLA as the po-boy and terrible decision making, and has been ever since Central Grocery introduced it 111 years ago. CG's is still arguably the best, and considering the order-able two-pack served up to eight people, it's basically the Louisiana equivalent of a big-ass party sub.
