Penzey’s are just unquestionably the spice people. If you want a spice, they almost definitely have that spice. And they have the best version of that spice. From their double strength Mexican vanilla, to about 4 different types of single-origin cinnamon, everything is fresh and fragrant. While their prices are definitely a little higher than some sources, the quality is so exponentially higher that they more than justify the difference. We source basically all of our spices from here.

Favorite Items: double strength Mexican vanilla, Chinese Tung Hing cinnamon, whole peppercorns, cardamom, ancho chili powder. It’s all good though.
