Penzeys Spices - The Best Spices!

My latest haul
When it comes to vegan cooking, flavor is everything and without top notch spices, you're not going to be a happy camper.  Yes, you can easily buy your spices at the grocer, but there's a problem with that - spices typically only last for 6 months, after that, they start to lose their potency.  Well, do you have any idea how long your spice was sitting on the shelf before you got your hands on it?  And lets be honest, are you really going to use it up in 6 months?  For that reason, I hit Penzeys Spices because I am guaranteed a fresh spice every time.  That and I swear on a Oprah's "Favorite Things" show she said Penzeys Spices was her go-to spice shop.  I can't argue with Oprah.

You can't beat Penzeys variety; with over 250 spices, herbs and seasonings, they always have what I'm looking for!  My must have spices are: Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Cumin, Italian Seasoning, Cinnamon and Pumpkin Spice.

Their prices are very reasonable too - anywhere from $3.99 for a 1/4 cup jar of Cinnamon up to $28 for a whole pound (that's a lot of cinnamon).

I love that their spices come in glass bottles and that you can also buy in bulk, skip the bottle and use your own containers - if you don't recall, check out my kick ass spice drawer!

Plus they are always giving something away for free!  Even when I forget to use a coupon, they send me something extra.

If you're looking for a unique gift for the aspiring chef in your life, they have a variety of gift sets for all types of budgets!

While I typically order online, Penzeys has brick and mortar shops across the country.  Including our very own Cleveland Westside Market (United Bank Bldg, 2000 West 25th Street)!
