My first thought was to vote for Penzeys. Then I remembered a company I used to purchase from, 10 to 20 years ago and I checked to see if they are still in business, and they are. It used to be called Frontier Herbs but is now called Frontier Coop. They have an extensive selection, is mainly but not entirely, organic. Is a socially conscious business and had great products.

Another vote for Penzey's. I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered from them (their Hot Curry Powder is terrific!), & have also sent some of their gift packages & received great feedback.

I have not used Atlantic Spice Co., but I used Penzys all the time and highly recommend them. There is another one I have heard about, but I can't remember the name. Jennyema would know. I think it is called something like The Spice House or something similar to that.

I used to shop at The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company. Does that count?

I recommend Penzey's also. I have seen others recommend the Spice House.

I have also ordered from Penzey's 7 or 8 times. They sometimes throw in a small jar of something fun to try out too. I've never been disappointed yet.

GB,

Andy is right. Spice House. Run by the same family as Penzey's I think.

I vote 100% for Penzey's though.
