Mary F. sends her son a birthday package every year filled with tamales, barbecue, spices, and a few trinkets that remind him of San Antonio.

Deidre P. and Chelsey C. had the same idea with a package containing H-E-B tortillas, beef fajitas, jelly, and cookies.

Melinda G. says she would add Whataburger ketchup and mustard, a local salsa, and pecan pralines.

Jane A-H. would include Delia’s tamales, Dr. Pepper, Big Red + barbacoa, and of course shipped overnight.
