  1. I don't know, but I'm watching with interest because I'd like to get some more exotic stuff too...

    1. there's a rather long thread on this subject from not too long ago...cinnamon & pepper are amongst the big's a link.

      1. their ground cumin is sublime, and I could never do without their hot and medium chile powders.

        1. re: mke2lax

          Their ground cumin is wonderful...

        2. The crushed red pepper is great, as is the kosher salt. I also second the cinnamon and the pepper corns. Finally, the vanilla (beans too if you will use them)! I also use the almond extract which is excellent and pretty strong (in a good way). I love Penzey's and was so excited when they opened in NYC!

          1. I almost forgot, my fiance also loves the bavarian seasoning on grilled chicken. So I recommend that, too.
