  1. 4 out of 5 Don’t ever change

    My grandmother (on mom side) is from Poland, and grandma on my dads side is Lithuanian. During the Christmas holidays they both love to bake traditional breads and cakes (don’t ask me what or the names, I just know they taste absolutely spectacular!). Some recipes call for unwashed poppy seeds that have a distinct bitter aftertaste..if it’s spicy or peppery smelling, both grandmothers throw em to the birds! FTL has been a mainstay for these family recipes and traditions for many years. Please don’t go the way of the dinosaur and start changing the quality I spoke of!

  2. 1 out of 5 Terrible Quality

    This is my first time purchasing from food to live and I’ve heard positive reviews, other than the price hike, about this product. So I’m not sure what happened but this product is terrible, quality is not good at all and several people said the same thing. So now I’m just waiting for a response to see how they are going to handle this concern but, I am very disappointed, I finally have been able to buy this product, either the price was to high or they were out of stock but I definitely was expecting better.

    • Hope this person is still around and willing to answer some questions. A report of terrible quality is serious, especially one so recent. Did you get a 4 pound bag or 8 pound bag? Does the label show the country of origin is England? Did you receive your order between 11/13 and 11/18? Thanks in advance for your help. Getting bad seeds is very disappointing. FTL has never sent us bad seeds, the odds of it happenening on your first order are unimaginable, but we all know are not zero. That is why despite some friends knowing we just received very good seeds your review was enough to stop them from ordering for 3 dyas now. To prevent any misunderstanding, honest reviews are a good thing.

  3. 5 out of 5 5 stars: FTL perfection of selection

    Food To Live continues to sell very high quality seeds from England such as the ones ordered the week of 11/13, exp date 12-2019. FTL has earned our complete trust to offer only the best, not once has anyone we know received low quality seeds from England sold by FTL. A remarkable record of perfection, considering accidents happen and mistakes are made – but not by FTL in our experience. FTL is the only vendor we can say that about. Yes the price increase is a real problem for some people, we have no reason to think FTL is the cause and every reason to trust them so far. We know bad weather in England impacted supply and Mccormick bought the entire food division of Reckitt Benckiser. We don’t know exactly why prices went up. Regardless, Food To Live is known for quality not cheap supply and we strongly believe FTL knows what they are doing and will continue using their best discretion with suppliers. – Thanks to all the hard workers of Food To Live.

    Extremely great for your baking and exfoliating needs, these seeds are more expensive but the quality difference is noticeable. I may buy more but there just seems to be huge problems with getting these seeds, and they sure aren’t cheap.

    1 out of 5 Be sure you're not getting seeds that aren't from england

    Just a warning, and I hope this isn’t going on with FTL…

    Other suppliers are shipping seeds from SPAIN and calling them ENGLAND seeds, yet are jacking up the price on these awful spain seeds, but falsely advertising them as England.

    If you receive mediocre seed, they may be from Spain like the other companies are doing. Until the new harvest, I wouldn’t even buy from anyone because they are really screwing people around right now.

    We are getting terrible quality seed from spain, at awful prices, yet they are advertised as England.

    Really misusing loyal customers. Please be careful guys.

    • You must not have seen the very first sentence in the review. It’s just a warning, and I am not saying FTL is doing this or will. If others who use the same supplier as FTL are doing it, then there’s a chance. If people will be paying more than 3x the price, they deserve to at least be warned.

    • I was so happy when i saw they had English seeds again. I geel they knew how bad the harvest was and didnt even touch thembecause they know it comes with a lot if returns and bad reviews. I feel they are a more reputable company, yet the prices are disgustingly high, but i feel thats more the farmers setting the price then ftl and others. Hopefully imbrught andbthey got a decent product for us to buy, but i csnt fsult them for what i have personally experienced with 2 other companies of baiting and switching spain seeds. Thats just not cool. Ill have my order tomorrow and im actually feeling like the quality will match their typical great quality. If not, it wouldnt be the first time this year lol. Butbi cant complaine that they are crooked like other 2, when i feel they did the right thing and just didnt stock bogus english seeds. Other companies had no problem ripping us off. Ftl just went off the map for a while, hopefully until they could finally aquire decent wuality seeds. We’ll see, but i am confident.

    5 out of 5 Excellent product

    I have never been disappointed by FTL English poppy seeds. The product is excellent as well as the customer service. People complaining about cost have their thoughts misplaced. FTL, as with other companies, use other companies to source their product. If for whatever reason the people they source their product from raise the wholesale price, they either have to raise the retail price or stop carrying the product. I for one am glad to at least be given the opportunity to purchase this product (although at this point it seems to be sold out again).

    1 out of 5 Such a Disappointment

    A near 200 % price increase…. literally overnight? How on Earth can you possibly justify this? Not to mention your most recent batch of seeds was sub par at best. They were rancid and well below the current market standard.

    Yet here you are charging nearly threefold for seeds that don’t even rate as being ‘mediocre’. I was forced to spend 68 dollars for a measly 4 lbs of your England seeds on Amazon.

    Well. here’s what I’m gonna do FoodToLive. With this mediocre product and these grossly inflated prices, I’m afraid I have no choice but to contact Amazon and request a full refund.

    I just can’t afford to pay over 12 dollars per pound, for rancid seed that isn’t even half the quality of the current market standard.

    I recommend everyone else who purchased their seeds from Amazon to do the same.

    Protip: If you’re having trouble trying to return these seeds, you need to contact Amazon directly in order to get a refund on this particular item. I know on your order page it says the item cant be returned, but that does not mean you can’t be refunded for the item. Just contact Amazon and they will take care of you.

    This is probably going to be my last purchase from your company as well.

    You have no one to blame but yourselves.

    3 out of 5 Price increase is awful

    I have been a loyal customer for quite some time, and have been very disappointed in FTL’s lack of ability to keep up with their demand. They are the worst when it comes to ordering the right amount of stock for the typical demand they receive.

    This price increase is uncalled for. Only the most desperate of buyers will even attempt to purchase from you now. You only offer 4lbs, and jack up the price. Why even bother? I wouldn’t call this “lucky” at all.

    SincerelyNuts must use the same supplier because they doubled their prices, too.

    But, thankfully, not ALL competitors have. New competitors are now coming out with awesome england seeds, and will be taking your business. Smart move on their part. NutCravings is one of them. One of your other top competitors actually remains at their normal prices for top product, and are hardly ever out of stock. Their prices are actually lower than what your original prices were. Say, your old price for 18lbs was more than your competitors price for 25lbs… and the seeds are the same quality.

    I have never seen a price increase like this, or such trouble getting any stock. This was a bad move. Why weren’t they better prepared for this, on one of their best selling products?

    FTL knows that stock is hard to come by right now, so they also know they can jack up the price and some will be forced to pay it. Not ALL competitors are out of stock, and most people will probably find these other competitors and stick with them.

    I will not be coming back to FTL either, not after this long time out of stock and then this GREEDY price increase. There is no way any supplier can charge twice as much for the same quality seeds and people will feel “lucky” about being able to buy.

    I would spend a few hundred a month for FTL england seeds, but will be paying much less at the other company I now order from and will be sticking with them. They don’t pull this stuff and they have an awesome supplier that hardly ever goes out of stock. They also do a much better job keeping up with demand.

    Look elsewhere guys! You’re even better off buying the crap from grocery stores… even that stuff is still cheaper than FTL!

    • If your supplier is doubling their prices. Find a new supplier. I’m not wasting my money because your company is too lazy or inept to locate a better source. There are at least two other sites that offer poppies at prices cheaper than your previous prices but I still stuck by your company because you’ve always done right by me. Until now, of course. If your supplier still refuses to reduce their prices, perhaps a boycott of your own is order.

    3 out of 5 EXTREME price raise

    I have been a loyal customer to FTL for over a year now. This ridiculous price raise of over 100% is just absurd. I was patiently waiting for food to live to restock, only to be disappointed. I refuse to pay that price and will not purchase from food to live as long as the prices are like that. I will find alternatives, there are many.

    My family turned me on to England seeds. He’s been a customer for years. Rarely, he said, you will get a bad batch which he says he’s been lucky because he talks in the chat groups and reads the reviews which i also started before ordering. This will be my 3rd order. My 1st was great, my second batch i received today was unbelievable! Super strong. Anywho im placing my order early i dont want any hurricane weather slowing the process if it heads this way. Stay safe everyone and these seeds are fantastic!

    Just received 8 lbs. (England) and they were some of the weakest, most useless seeds I’ve ordered from ANYONE- including SN, and WGN- so that says a lot. Very disappointed. (Ex.: Sept. 2018)

    • Are you sure you don’t mean Set. 2019? That’s what mine were. While I agree they are much worse then the 6-8/2019 exp. dates, they are still useable. I have received 100 % unusuable seeds before and it was a nightmare. That is a whole different level. If you really did get a Sept. 2018 instead of 2019 then those are definitely different seeds and you should ask to send you the 2019 ones.

I asked them last Friday if they were the same and they said yes. Yet I keep hearing from people that they are different. I need to know if I should just return them when I receive them tomorrow. Are they at least active?

  28. 5 out of 5 Very close to what my grandmother used in breads and rolls.

    As far as poppy seeds are concerned, over the years, I have immediately thrown away many pounds, especially when bought at grocery stores. This includes several pounds of seeds from Spain I recently ordered. My complaint almost always is that the product did not have that familiar and characteristic nutty flavor and aroma like my grandmother used to bake on weekends and special occasions, hot out of the oven. Most grocery store-bought (always, for a hefty price) and on-line seeds have that bland taste and flavor, more like, none at all to a foul or suspicious pesticide-like or chemical-like odor. These seeds from England were perfect and remind me of those days as a kid eating those delicious poppy seed rolls and breads, usually smothered in butter. I have learned how to add them to my regular bread and roll baking. Also, Food To Live babysits their many healthy and delicious products, starting from the ordering process to final delivery. So, I always know where the order is during transit, up to the moment they arrive. Five stars for this and for the Pepita seeds, dried cherries, and raw cashews (for making substitute coffee cream).

  29. 5 out of 5 poppy seeds england

    Great Product better then Sincerely nuts, they have their natural bitter nutty flavor. Out of the seeds I bought over the years I give them 10/10 on taste, a 7/10 on bitterness, 8/10 on freshness, 10/10 on price, plus discounts. last years batches where much more bitter, Free 2 shipping since I live in Kentucky not extremely too far away from the company. At the current moment dealing with other vendors these are the best! the fast shipping, price range, and the natural high quality of the poppy seeds, well you can’t go wrong!

    Great quality, very versatile seeds. Whether you bake with them or put them in your salads, they are great seeds. Some seeds are pre-washed in which the flavor gets washed out of them, but these seeds are not washed and still have that great strong nutty flavor.

      The product is great. My biggest issue with you all is every other time I go to purchase the product your out of stock. And to be completely honest with you giving all this feedback is a pain in the butt. But again, product is great, I recommend it over all that are out there

    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.

  36. 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.

      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.

    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!

    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.

  43. 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…

    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.
