I went to Google and searched. Penzeys has a website but no store close to me in Oregon, nearest I believe is Iowa, but I ordered a catalog. I will look later in my phone book. THanks Alix

Penzey's is mostly in the mid-west. They're opening a store in Boston but that's 1 1/2 hours from me so I will still order on line. That's the best way. When you get their catalogue you'll see. I'm sure you'll enjoy reading it.

Sorry Chesterchippy, I guess I should have read these and used your connection rather than Google. Thanks anyway. A catalogue is on the way.

In the grocery store I buy Schilling or McCormick. Can't speak for everywhere, but in my small area everything else is junk. I have also ordered Penzeys off the internet and have been very satisfied with the results - fresh and fast delivery.

Penzey's

I have been ordering from Penzey's for years. Outstanding products and service! Check out the prices for the stale stuff on the grocery store shelf and compare it with Penzey's....big difference and always much fresher.

I love Penzey's cinnamon - China Cassia and Korintje Cassia. Their Vietnamese is supposed to be excellent, also.
I also really like their double vanilla extract, fines herbes and herbes de Provence.
Their Tellicherry black peppercorns are pretty good, but not bold enough for me. Next time I'm going to try both their Sarawak and Special Extra Bold Indian Peppercorns.

Merstar,

You are making really good choices on the sarawak and extra bold pepper corns.

The Sarawak doesn't even need food to accompany it. The smell alone is pure heaven!

I am a loyal Penzey's follower. I try to order almost everything from them because it's so much better quality than the store-brands and also ends up to be cheaper, usually.

Staples in my house are peppercorns, thyme, cinnamon, vanilla, garlic and onion powder, bay leaves, cumin, chile powder, dried chiles, oregano, several of the curry mixes, allspice berries, ginger, and more stuff that I am forgetting. I also have tried some of their spice blends in small quantities.

Robt is right about the pepper. I ordered both Sarawack and Xspecial awhile ago and the aroma alone put me into the trancelike state I go around in today.

Can't wait for their Boston location.
