Penzeys Spices

OK I am very excited. I just placed my first order through Penzeys Spices. I have heard great things about them, but have never tried their stuff. Here is what I just ordered:

Fajita Seasoning
Brown Mustard Seed
Ozark Seasoning
Chicken Soup Base
Chicken Taco Seasoning
Sicilian Salad Seasoning
Garden Salad Seasoning

I can't wait to get my order :)

Oh and they were having a contest to see where they would open their next store and Boston won. That made my day!

What have you bought from Penzeys and did you like it or not?

I adore Penzey's and ahve used them for years; always, always, top quality product and new ideas. I've ordered just about everything from them, and never been dissatisfied.

Try their Foxpoint Seasoning for fish/chicken. The peppercorns are awesome. The Ozark seasoning is awesome. Oh, and do get the 'Barbeque of the Americas' - I've used it on everything!

I love their gift packs, too, and have given many away as Christmas presents.

GB, I'm jealous - I voted for Charleston, but didn't make it! I even wrote them a letter saying I'd love to manage a store in my area!

Marm, it sounds like they are trying to open a few more stores after Boston so I will keep my fingers crossed for you!

I can't say enough about Penzey's. Just got my most recent order today. I've used them for years - there is no other brand in my spice cabinet. I don't usually buy the blends (though I have a few), but I must have all the pure spices. I also get things like saffron and vanilla from them. They always send a sample size of something like lemon pepper, pasta sprinkle, or Galena Street (which I got today). The recipes in the catalogue are great, the reading material is so informative, and they seem like such a nice family when the include what they've been up to. I really like buying from them.

Never heard of these spices. Are they perhaps a regional favorite. All I remember is Watkins and now it is almost gone. I have only seen it at fairs.

They sell it like Avon here. Look in your phone book for distributors if you are interested. Watkins has a couple products that are irreplaceable in our house.
