Penzeys: A Great Source for Spices

Certain catalogs can be extraordinary in the education they provide to the point of being reference materials in and of themselves. When it comes to spice catalogs, I love the Penzeys Spices' catalog. It is filled with descriptions of each spice, uplifting stories about community, and recipes describing how to use the spices. Simply getting the catalog itself can be a joy.

If you are needing to buy some spices, opening a package from Penzeys can be a true sensual delight! The colors and aromas are fresh and vibrant. Their cinnamon smells sweet. The smoked paprika smelled so good that I almost passed out smelling it! It's not uncommon to also find a little freebie in your order, too.

If you are used to buying generic bottles of spices in a regular grocery store, then I challenge you to treat yourself to a package of fresh, high quality spices. I find the difference is vast and its a nice, little luxury to which to treat yourself.

A free catalog from Penzeys Spices can be found at http://www.penzeys.com/.  May you have a spicy, good time!    


  1. I could not agree more! We visited Penzeys a couple of weeks ago for the first time and it was awesome! And it is great for baking needs too. My husband (who is the baker) found all kinds of yummy vanilla and stuff. We used Northwods this weekend on grilled veggies and it was great! Thanks for blogging on it so others can share in it.

    1. Thank you for sharing your Penzeys experience! I've never visited one of their stores, but it sounds like an amazing field trip possibility. One day...
