... (I think it's mostly just horse semen they ship in dry ice)...

[Nit-pick warning] Semen is shipped in liquid nitrogen, not dry ice. [end nit-pick]

Most if not all fresh foods shipped direct to customer by mail order are either inferior quality or are overpriced. It's much more economical to ship to stores in refrigerated trucks than direct to consumers in dry ice. So they either have to charge a lot more for direct, or use cheaper foods. Or both. One podcast had ads for a company that sold "healthy" snacks. Sounded to me like organic junk food. Exactly the same stuff that is available in the "health food" section of pretty much any grocery store nowadays.
