The link works perfectly, and this coupon think is a good advice, generally speaking. Need to check if this works for foreign customers.
Thanks!

The best place to buy inexpensive good spices is at ethnic grocery stores. Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian, etc. Walk in the door and the aromas are amazing!

If you use large quantities or have like minded people to share with, Penzeys prices can be reasonable.

I'm rapidly approaching the time for another run to their local store. I often tie it in with a run to the Armenian markets in Watertown. One loop and I've covered all the bases.

Add another to the Panzy's camp. I really have never even thought to look elsewhere. The store in Falls Church is fantastic too, so it's great to just bop on down the road.

Great suggestion on the ethnic markets, they often have good prices.

I just like the variety that Penzys has, multiple cinnamons and some of their blends are fantastic. I'm hooked on their Pacific fine sea salt, it is just the right fine grind and sticks to popcorn really well, and just has a clean flavor.

I'm hooked on their cocoa powders as well, much richer tasting than what's usually found in grocery stores.

Their sandwich sprinkle is so delicious on veggies!

Can you tell that I'm a penzys addict?

I find their prices are often better than McCormics, and they offer a variety of sizes, need just a small jar, they have it, need a big pouch, you can get that same item in a much larger quantity.

Another Penzey's fan here. I love their Arizona Dreaming and Mural of Flavor, and that so many of their blends are salt free. They also have great customer service.

We have a Penzey's down the road, so I go there quite a bit. One tip when buying from Penzey's: save the jar and refill with their bulk packages, which come in plastic bags. It's a LOT less expensive than buying a new jar every time.
