Ordering food online - what kind of food would you buy from the internet?

Do you buy groceries online? Candy? Cans?
I'm debating buying staples online and getting the stuff that needs to be fresh at Farmer's Markets etc. But what about "extras" like chocolate?
Would love your opinions

    I order canned salmon from VitalChoice.com, their canned salmon makes a great lunch and tastes so much better than other canned salmon. They have a growing inventory of ecologically responsible and organic foods that I wish I could buy more of, but budgetary restrictions apply.

      I order groceries on-line to be delivered about once a month and I love it. I mainly get bulky pre-packaged items such as laundry detergent, canned tomatoes, flour, sugar, dry pasta, coffee, etc. It only takes a few minutes to place an order and then I don't have to spend part of my weekend at the supermarket stocking my pantry. I pick up fresh vegetables, fruit and meat at the various markets near my house (and the farmer's market in the summer). I usually get specialty items at a great market we have here in Toronto (St. Lawrence Market).
