    Awesome product quality. I wish it was still on prime but the shipping was pretty good anyway (5 total days but faster than USPS estimate). Additionally, I have found that this product specifically, tends to go out of stock pretty frequently (once or twice a month for 2-4 days at a time). So it can be wise to order ahead a little more than you typically would.

  4. 5 out of 5 Great

    I have ordered from FoodToLive a handful of times, and I always get packages on time, in great shape and in great quality. There was one time last month that the pOatman delivered the package in a postal bin because it had been destroyed in the process of delivery, seeds were overflowing out of the box. I contacted help@foodtolive.com to explain and Kat promptly responded, sent me an RMA slip, and immediately sent out a replacement order. Trusting that I would get to the post office and send it back. Very impressive customer service. Of course, I took it to the post office as soon as I had a chance within a couple of days, and sent it back. I got better customer service from FTL than at the post office as they had ME take this package that was spilling out and smashed and stick it into another box the same exact size, use half a roll of tape to make sure it wouldn’t get damaged again.. amidst a sea of post office customers looking at me like a crazy person with seeds everywhere, struggling to fix some lazy employees mess up. 😲 Anyway, but I got my replacement very quickly and am very satisfied with Food to Live and Kat!!! Restock soon please!!

    5 out of 5 Poppy seed herbalist ( England )

    Besides the wonderful baking and health food applications for those healthful natural unprocessed FTL poppy seeds, there are many herbalist and natural food aficionados that appreciate the qualities of poppy seeds for their health and medicinal qualities as well. when I am using poppy seed tea to get a small bit of temporary comfort for that awful winter cold or flu feeling, I combine standard prepared PST with equal parts of sun brewed Yerba Mate tea and pressed coca sun brewed tea ( decocainized export coca tea / powder , of course ). this healthful / helpful herbal combination provides that important flu symptom relief , adds a bit of that caffeine / natural herbal stimulating lift and a lot of vitamins – minerals – antioxidants to help you get through the day at work or home and help get over that flu as soon as possible. the wonderful natural flavor of FTL poppy seeds and their excellent natural quality help contribute to make this naturalist herbal treatment successful. Thank you Food to Live.

      naproppriate. If posts like this keep being posted the bakers will have their products taken away and will have to switch to the low quality ie. Bob’s Red Mill that are untreated and don’t have the same flavor profile as FTL.

      maybe it’s just me, but this post feels like someone trying to mention competing brands here which is ” definitely ” inappropriate. if FTL feels like my posts aren’t appropriate or needs content change then they can flag them or just emaill me and I’d be happy to revise them, I have nolo problemo with either of those alternatives. IMHO FTL is probably the best source for quality product on the web in recent times, I’d be happy to convey this thought in different ways ( than I already have ), if FTL thought it’d be useful or desirable. a little spice is a good thing.

    5 out of 5 Poppy Seed quality ( England )

    I continue to be very pleased with the poppy seed product supplied by Food to Live. my most recent order was the 18 pound size ( you receive two 9 pound bags ) and the seed quality was excellent. when making European Poppy Seed pastry , you must have the freshest , most unwashed and untreated seeds possible. anything less won’t do. FTL seeds are perfect for European Poppy Seed pastry, their flavor is exactly what you want. also, if you are one of those people that want to plant poppies or just sprout the seeds for your natural salads and drink mixes, FTL seeds ( being natural and unprocessed ) sprout quickly and make robust sprouts. both in a sprouting machine or when just using wet paper towels to sprout just a couple days worth. I will definitely be a return customer for this wonderful product, thanks.

  7. 5 out of 5 Wonderful Product

    This item arrived just as described and in secure packing to ensure no damage to the product. I am very pleased with the quality. I use these for my business and this Company is now in the top 3. This was my first purchase direct than my usual purchase through Amazon. I had a minor issue which was corrected immediately with wonderful customer service via phone and email communication. I definitely recommend buying direct and I do vouch that this product is as described and in my opinion one of the best of brands available with great quality.

    Rich, natural, and delicious. As always. To get the right flavor for two of my bakery’s most popular items, Poppyseed-Lemon Muffins, and Makowiec (thks for the recipe, G’ma Szalkowski), the seeds used MUST be untouched (unwashed, unradiated, untreated in any way). FTL always makes good on this, and is reliably tasty. Other brands just can’t match their consistency. That’s worth the extra cost!

    Great product, arrived in 2 business days. Great dependable seller. I had reached out to customer service at one point asking about availability of a product, and received a prompt, kind and informactive response. I wish more sellers were as courteous and dependable as FTL. Thanks for a great product!

    The shipping speed was absolutely stunning, I expected it to be arriving today, I got it yesterday. The quality of the seed is spectacular, these are quality, unwashed poppy seeds that make a fantastic Polish pastry. You will not be disappointed. The price can be a little steep, but if you buy the 18 lbs pack it’s even cheaper than my local bulk supplier. Great customer service as well.

  11. 5 out of 5 Exceeded expectations

    These could quite possibly be the best seeds I’ve ever had. I usually wash them before adding them to my recipes, and the aroma they give off is very dense and Earthy. They are clearly unwashed, which adds more complex flavor to my recipes. Be careful because the flavor can be overwhelming if you add too much. Simply excellent product, not much else to say…

    My placing the order was easy and took hardly any time at all. Tracking the order is always fun and accurate. Delivery was made in the afternoon which is earlier then normal by about 5 hours which sounds silly but it normally comes around 8pm so it was kinda nice getting it before the end of the day.

    These are probably some of the dirtiest seeds I’ve ever gotten, because when i wash them the water is pretty dark. However, I’m addicted to the crunch they maintain. 3 nods, and an applause!

    Makes the finest eastern European pastries. It has that old-world taste and clumps together for a nice crunch in your makowiec (you can always stir them well before mixing if you don’t desire clumps). The delicious taste brings me back to my childhood. Thank you Food To Live.

    These are really good, I grind up a pound of them with a cup of sugar and a 1/2 cup of milk to make a filling for a roll, and the taste reminds me of when I was a kid at my grandparents. I can’t even explain it, but if you try these, you will see what I mean. They just have that taste. Can’t explain it. Anyway, delicious.

    These seeds are by far the BEST quality poppy seeds I have bought so far. They have a great nutty taste and aroma and make a very potent tea. I would have given 5 stars but it took longer on shipping then I expected. Overall the best poppy seeds you can buy if you’re willing to spend the money for 50 lbs.

    Guys,This is not washed or treated. That "pepper" or "spice" smell you’re describing is actually a flowery smell… some strains of p. somni have that distinct flowery smell. This England batch that I got yesterday has the smell you’re all talking about,BUT, it works, quite well actually. I give Sincerely (lately) an 8/10 rating, which is pretty good. This English FTL I give a 7/10. Just try it!

    I saw a lot of negative reviews saying the product smells like pepper. I agree, however ever when you cook or eat the poppy seeds as I do all you have to do is give them a good wash. The product from England is great, the product from Spain was awful.

    Seeds are slightly washed and smell a bit peppery. Not the best quality, but they are alright. Would be worthwhile if these were a bit cheaper.
