Delicatessen is a term meaning "delicacies" or "fine foods." This word came from Germany, with the old German spelling Delikatessen, plural of Delikatesse i.e. "delicacy." Germany got this from France's délicatesse which means "delicious things (to eat)." Ultimately, the French word came from Latin's "delicatus," meaning "giving pleasure, delightful, pleasing."

It's no wonder I like to hang out at this place in this Publix supermarket to get these cuts for sandwich making. A pound of this and a pound of that and another pound of the other thing rapidly add up to tons of calories, but it's hard to resist this sinful habit. Thankfully, there is always a long line that usually prevents me to overindulge too often. I'll come back tomorrow!
