Question What Penzeys Spices/Herbs I Should Try?

I started a conversation on Face Book with another DC member about what Penzeys Spices he enjoys.

I've only been to their shop once before, but from the sounds of it from everyone else here at DC, I'm missing out and should patronize Penzeys.
DH & I will be going back down to Tucson where there is a Penzeys Shop.

So, please tell me what Penzeys Spices/Herbs/Blends you like, and in turn, I might too.

Mahalo, thanks in advance...

Hi kgirl, nice to see you back.

Penzeys....gosh, where to begin! Everything I've tried so far is superior to McCormicks, which I used to buy years ago.

Just to mention a few, their roasted dried garlic is amazing, I'm never without that. The smoked Spanish paprika is over the top good - I never realized paprika could have such good flavor until I started buying Penzeys. So rich and smoky. I also love their cinnamons, onion powder, dried shallots, oh and their Arizona Dreaming blend is wonderful, too. (IMO) I love that in ground beef for taco salads and just sprinkled over sliced avocado.

Fox Point seasoning blend is delicious on scrambled eggs and veggies, and I really like their BBQ 3000 for a chicken rub before grilling. I'm also never without a bag of their tellicherry peppercorns for my pepper mill.

I'm sure you'll get a lot of responses, many of us here love Penzeys. I need to place another order pretty soon.

I love using the Green Goddess Dressing as a poultry rub. As Katy said above...she hit the high points for me.

Free***Free***FREE

I need to start a thread with this to get more attention, but I will share here that if you order online before midnight TONIGHT (Sunday) you can get free shipping with only $20 in purchases. You also can get free, a 1/2 cup jar of their new Salsa and Pico seasoning and a 1/4 cup jar of their ground chipotle (LOVE that stuff!). You do need to spend at least $5 to get the free jars, but if you're buying $20 for the free shipping you're already qualified.

To get the offers, you need to enter a code in the apply code box. It is:

16755C

Happy shopping!

I second that vote on the Roasted Garlic granules, nothing else can come close to it. I also love the Arizona Dreaming and the Taco Seasoning mix is a perfect blend, better than the store envelope mixes and less costly. The Bangkok Blend is really nice for Asian dishes.

Fox Point, roasted garlic, Greek seasoning, Mexican oregano, Sandwich Sprinkle (essentially Italian seasoning), Mural of Flavor, Chinese Five-Spice, Pie Spice. They have several types of cinnamon; I like the Indonesian one.

There's more, but we're on the road so I can't look in the cabinets.

Mexican oregano, adobo, all their cinnamons and apple pie spice, all their chili powders

Pretty much everything.

I have to say I dig Spice House's blends more than Penzey's -- sometimes Penzey's doesn't edit theirs very well.

Juniper berries! Every time I go to my spices, I take a deep whiff then seal them up again. Smash one and you're suddenly a gin-house mama, but in a good way.

I wish I could figure out more things to put them in. Ideas?
