I haven't purchased anything from them for a long time as I usually run out of just one spice at a time so I grab a replacement at the grocery store. However, I'm in need of chili powder, smoked paprika, dried basis, and cumin so I think I'll place an order. Any faves you can recommend? I use to buy Foxpoint all the time but haven't in years so I don't even remember what it tastes like. Looking forward to hearing from everyone. Thanks.

I use Fox Point all the time. I love their herbs de provence and fines herbes, as well as ancho chili powder. Not a huge fan of their taco seasoning. Love their cassia cinnamon. I've tried a bunch of the other blends--mural of flavor, northwoods, the southern one (spacing on the name right now)--they're fine but I don't love them. Tsardust Memories, though, that one I do love, especially on pork chops on the grill
I used to love them but since moving from WI, haven't really bothered with much of their stuff. I like the Fox Point too. I think my favorite is their Pork Chop blend, which I use on steaks (they have a similar one for steaks but this one has no added sugar).
My go-to blends have become the fake good season's (copycat) that I use for dressings, but also as a spice blend and the old, old Cooking Light Pastrami blend, but neither of these are Penzey's.

I was just about to place a Penzey's order, too!! My absolute favorite blend of theirs is Mural of Flavor. It is a no salt added all purpose seasoning. It is great on vegetables, eggs, soups etc.... But my favorite way to use it is on popcorn! YUM!
I also like Foxpoint seasoning, pizza seasoning, chili 9000, Tuscan sunset, Salsa and Pico, Arizona dreaming, California seasoned pepper, Penzeys curry, and garam masala. I guess I like a lot. I also like their brady street and sicilian seasoning on popcorn but you have to be careful with those as they have added salt and can quickly become too salty in a recipe/popcorn if you add additional salt, too.

We love their Mitchell Street steak seasoning, Northwoods (awesome on salmon), Fox Point, Adobo blend, ancho chili powder, and their Sandwich Sprinkle which is amazing on eggs, sliced tomatoes, etc. One huge fave is the Roasted Garlic powder-it's deeper, richer and smoother than regular garlic powder. The Arizona Dreaming is great and salt free too which is a big plus for me.

Gilgamesh: I don't care for the taco seasoning either. I do, however, like Northwoods and use it a lot. I currently have a large jar of their ancho chili powder so I'm good there. I am going to include Fox Point and that Tsardus Memories in my order - that sounds delish!
Karen: I have purchased Mural of Flavor but like the Fox Point - I don't really remember it. I'll put it on my "might buy" list. I thought I had purchased Arizona Dreaming before but the bottle doesn't look familiar so perhaps I haven't. I'm putting it on my "buy" list as it sounds right up our alley. I think I have some Brady Street seasoning already in my spice drawer but I guess I should pull it out and use it more.
Soup: I love their Roasted Garlic Powder and use it often in place of real garlic. I like their regular garlic powder too. I'm getting lazy in my old age and get tired of mincing fresh garlic these days. I currently have a ton of "steak seasonings" but when those get old or I run out, I'm going to try the Mitchell Street seasoning.

Chinese Five Spice Powder, Garam Masala and Herbes de Provence are some of my favorites that I use a lot. I've tried mixing my own following various recipes but I prefer buying these from Penzeys. Also try not to run out of their Ceylon cinnamon and Vietnamese cinnamon. I'm lucky because there is a Penzeys within 20 minutes driving distance.

ME TOO! I live wedged between (maybe 3 - 4 miles in either direction), don't kill me now, two Trader Joe's...and one of them is next door to a Penzey's.
My latest find there at P is named 'regular sweet curry.' I didn't think I would like once I tasted it at home. I'm more into a hot curry. HOWEVER, to use it up I sprinkled it on our to-be-roasted Delicata Squash, lots of it, along with butter, brown sugar, hot pepper flakes (slight pinch), lemon pepper, garlic salt...whatever I had on hand...and WOW OH WOW. The curry makes it AMAZING!!!! Now I want squash all the time. I think I might now like sweet curry afterall.
PS: The Vegetable Broth sold by Trader Joe's is great stuff too. Didn't miss the chicken broth at all in my last batch of creamy cauliflower soup. I can finally give up store bought chix broth now. NO TINNY TASTE in TJ's veg broth. Just saying. It fit right in. Gonna go get more.
