Me too! Freebies are always good. CG, I sure wish I had a walk in brick and mortar Penzeys around here!

Cheryl, is that the 1/2 cup size roasted garlic? Woot! I thought we'd be getting the smallest jar. Nice! And FWIW, I ordered the cumin and paprika too. I needed them to add to a few other spices/herbs I have on hand to try and make my own chili powder mix.

I haven't actually ordered anything from them since they opened a store near me years ago but not only do I get catalogs in the mail, I get email from Bill Penzey!! I have no idea why that happens ....

Yep, sure is! I was surprised, too. I entered the smaller size in my shopping cart, then when I went to checkout it said the coupon code was "invalid for this item", or something like that. I removed it and entered in the larger 1/2 C size and it worked.

Funny how we ordered several of the same things. Cumin and smoked paprika are a staple in my kitchen, too. How do you make your homemade chili powder?

Kayelle, I see that you also ordered the Arizona Dreaming - love that stuff! IMO it tastes a lot like the packaged McCormicks or Lawry's taco seasoning, but without all the sodium. I love it sprinkled on avocados.

On a whim, I also ordered their freeze dried shallots and fajita seasoning.

Cheryl, I've only made taco mix seasoning so far. I'll be trying this recipe for my chili powder mix. I will go easy on the cumin since I found out that is the one ingredient in chili mix that gives me major indigestion. No cumin=no heartburn. No loss to me, since I'm not really fond of its flavor.

My paprika is the sweet Hungarian kind. We seem to go through a lot of that stuff in this house in spite of the fact that neither of us is Hungarian...

I ordered it for the first time Cheryl, as I've seen from you and others it's really good!
I agree, that 1/2 cup size for the roasted garlic is very generous for a freebie.
By the way, the coupon (43953C) is still good for those who didn't order yesterday with the free shipping.

I completely understand that PF. I wonder if a second order wouldn't also get us the free roasted garlic?
