  1. 1 out of 5 Disappointed

    Not a single piece of plant matter in my entire 8 lb bag, and also has a strong chemical taste. I was so excited to try these! Paying a little extra for the fantastic Blue Birds will never be an issue for me again.

    • Very disconcerting. My last two orders were exceptional and with my usual vendor out of stock for at least another month I was quite hopeful FTL might be stepping up.

  2. 1 out of 5 Peppery and not good.

    The last time I bought from here they were really good, but this time they were peppery. They changed something or started processing them heavily. It’s disappointing to say the least.

  3. 4 out of 5 Very nutty

    Definitely the strongest tasting poppy seeds I’ve encountered–incredibly rich, nutty flavor.

    Acceptable price for the quality.

    Shipping so fast it made my head spin–i think I received them in less than 24 hours from ordering.

    Great flavor, a little expensive but worth it IMO. Much better than the weird smelling stuff in grocery stores. Perfect for my favorites, lemon poppy cake and especially a sweet poppy seed roll! You get more for your money if you buy the bigger bags, and they last forever in the pantry without spoiling. Great stuff!

    Everything was good. My fiancee baked a bunch of rolls and pastries for some parties and some for our home as well. I love the smell of baking poppy seeds on kaiser rolls one of the best smells in the world in my opinion. Tasty and flavorful unlike the ones at my local supermarket.

  7. Question

    How is the recent quality? Back to normal or still Spanish seeds parading as english? Honesty is appreciated in business!

    • I usually only get my UK poppy seeds from one place, but they were closed for a holiday. Being an optimistic person, I tried this place again with your comment ringing in my ears. Low and behold, they are still Spanish. I’m sure they make a pretty penny doing this to people. It’ll be the last time I buy from here.

    These seeds were the absolute best quality I have bought in a very long time. They had a great taste, and kick to them. I will definitely be re-ordering.

    5 out of 5 Always Get What I pay For

    I believe these to be the best quality seeds available in current market conditions. I’ve always received exactly what I order and I’m in Canada..so with the taxes, exchange and duty, the seeds end up costing me a FORTUNE. But I can’t complain…I get what I pay for. Good product from a reputable company. Highly recommended

  10. 1 out of 5 Still no help

    Still no help with the bad order they sent me…plus my review is still waiting for approval…shows proof they sent the wrong product..of course they don’t want to show it! Sad that they can pick and choose the reviews of their products. And it’s really sad that I’ve lost a ton of money.

    Delicious! Perfect for baking, no pervasive oniony smell as I have encountered withe some brands (which would be fine for bagels and breads but I make lemon poppy cakes and poppy seed rolls which are sweet). Toast really nicely, too.

  12. 3 out of 5 Great product when sent the correct one!

    I’ve been a loyal customer for quite awhile now. I had one mix up that I was sent the wrong seed (Spain) instead of England…they quickly corrected the problem…that was a small order less than $50 I believe. Several orders later I placed my last order and I bought 3…8 pound bags of England seeds for our bakery and again received Spain seeds…you see I had to discount my products due to the error on Food to Lives part…I was asked to send pictures of the back of the bags which I did and of course they didn’t respond! I paid almost $300 for that order and lost a lot of money due to my pastries and breads not containing what we advertise. Sad to see that when its a small mistake they will fix it but not one that cost me and my business! Also tried to upload the photo on my review but won’t except a regular photo saying its to large…normal sizephoto that they had no problem getting when I sent it to them! Honestly I love the product I order from them when I get the correct product! But for me to lose that much money because they messed up and refused to correct the problem is heartbreaking because I’ve had to start shopping for other vendors that send me what I pay for.

      Everything Tab is saying rings true. My company and the one I am a partner at spent thousands and thousands here. We’ve received the same, if not far worse treatment when FTL is 200% in the wrong. And to date, never ONCE compensated in even the smallest way. Even when it was promised in writing. They always try to find someone else to blame and when that doesn’t work, they wait for you to tire out, like some scavenging predator that you hear cackling in the night.

      We’ve officially moved on. The last losses were too great and far-reaching into our own customer service. Not everyone can afford to screw over the people who keep their lights on and send their kids to school. And not everyone wants to.

    • Yep and they will not approve my last review…imagine that! It shows proof of what iwas sent! They of course don’t want people to see what I wrote And the proof that it shows in the pictures. And the fact that they still haven’t tried to make this right is absolutely ridiculous

    • beatibgwords please let me know where you order from now. FTL just will not except responsibility..trying to blame it on their shipping dept..hate to tell them that is still part of their company. I’ll also keep posting reviews until my last order is replaced with the correct product that I paid for and showed proof that they sent the wrong product!

    • Well I would like to see how you explain the bag clearly stating Australian seeds! I will not order from here again. I hope people read the reviews and see that when making a large purchase with FTL you get the cheapest product they have not the one that was paid for! There is a huge price difference in what I paid for and what I received! You just don’t want to admit and fix the problem that ya’ll made!

  13. 5 out of 5 Still Good

    The seeds we got from FTL this week are very good. True there isn’t the plant matter but we have never relied on that as a real indicator of quality. The seeds don’t smell ‘off’ or anything unusual, just strong flavor and high quality as per usual from Food To Live

    3 out of 5 Different batch

    I love these, but the last bag I received was of totally different quality, with a different smell(more peppery) and no dry debris as previous bags. If they run out and replace with a different origin or product it would be awesome if they updated information for all their loyal customers! Other than that their customer service and product are usually great!

      The same thing happened with me. I thought it was because I ordered the 8lb instead of the 4lb but it had the same expiration. I noticed there is pretty much no plant matter at all in these seeds. Although they are better than nothing they are definitely nowhere near the quality I was expecting. I’m going to order another 4lb bag today I just hope it’s what I’m paying for, because if it’s the same quality as the last bag I received it will return it and take my business elsewhere. Hopefully WGN gets their English seeds soon, it’s definitely about that time of year.

    • Glad I am not the only on. Thought I was losing my mind. My last 3 bags (4lb, 4lb, 8lb ) were all different tasting and clearly different smell and looked much different. I emailed FTL because I was concerned. They told me it was product from their usual vendor and there is fluctuation from month to month. I am used to having a small variation is smell and taste, but this feels a lot different. The quality just isn’t there, hope they get it resolved soon or at least change the price to reflect the downgrade. Either way, I will stick with FTL and keep trying back because they are an excellent company and always try to help wherever they can. Even if this latest batch is a different origin I highly doubt FTL decided us on purpose.

  21. Question

    Why is the price of 8 pounds so much higher , when in just July I ordered 18lbs with 5% off for $65. This is why I have not been ordering because of the prices. Also why do you allow such reviews go through that clearly are using your product for purposes not intended by you ? It almost makes it look like that is the purpose and the reason the price is outrageous. I was a loyal customer until this happened, just really would love to know the reason behind the price hike . Loved your dried fruits as well but if those also give people a nod of approval I am not willing to pay more than double either. Just saying, nice staff but something is not right here.

      I had a bad experience with ordering off of Amazon on Jan 2nd with one day shipping, I did not get the product until the 5th. The prices are still very high and would be great to have some sort of discount and even an estimated delivery date or option on speed as well. As I used to order direct from you and Amazon until October with the price hikes on the majority of quality poppy seeds. I do still consider yours to be my number one, however right now I would like to order and even with Prime I can get it by the 11th. That is my draw back is the long shipping time, I would like to order direct again as your price on one size is a tiny bit cheaper but would like to know the ETA after placing or before placing an order and some discounts, For returning to direct ordering opposed to Amazon. I still rate your quality as 5 stars. I just do not like the reviews stating abusive usage which is a crisis . Which of course is not on you personally as you do not intend to sell them that way, I just am surprised to still see reviews being allowed to be published in that manner.

    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.

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

  24. 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.

    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).

    Boycotting you, Food to Live. I’ll be buying from your competitors who have better products and most importantly, better prices. Goodbye.

    FOOD TO LIVE is a EXCELLENT business, always ship quickly and always helpful customer service! My seeds are fresh and there is no rancid oil smell, which only gets magnified in cooking or oil pressing. Top notch customer service and products!

      Jackin the price on the England seeds & only having a 4 pound bag you’re gonna lose a lot of customers, I’ve been a customer for years at this point but if this is the price I’ll do without this customer is gone.

    • Yep, I’m gone too. You guys are really screwing yourselves, and it’s too bad you don’t value your customers more. I refuse to pay this price.

    Ordered at the right time, i guess. Got my package in 3 days, opened it, and it smelled perfect. These seeds are high quality, and delicious in muffins, twists and rolls. 10/10 would and will buy again. gg food to live.

    Exactly what the product says. Fresh and earthy. Not like others that have that peppery/chemical smell. Definitely one of the better products out there.

  36. 5 out of 5 England poppy seeds you cant go wrong!!

    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!

    • Tell your supplier that you will loose all your seed business at these prices (you will). I will find another supplier. That’s $180.00 per month. You have great seeds and service but not at these prices.

    FTL ALWAYS has great product. These seeds had a very strong flavor and I ended up and made some delicious muffins! Was in a bad mood but baking this Poppy Seed bread made me happy the rest of the afternoon. 🙂

  38. 1 out of 5 WASTE of MONEY

    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)

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

    • Yep- just went and double checked- Sept. 2018- and they were total crap. Worthless. Thanks for the info. though! x

    • Were the exp. date Sept. 2019? I ordered as soon as they came back in stock on the 8 of August. That was the expiiration date and they were of good quality. 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?

    • I too ordered some of the new stock and no- they’re not even on par with the worst of Sincerely Nuts- and that’s saying something. REALLY bad quality. As in, “entire waste of money” quality.

    These guy rock………Awesome product and amazing shipping too. Cant ask to be more fair. One thing for sure and that’s The sight that charges $169.98 for 20 Lbs. will never see one nickel of my hard earned cash ever again. When they refused to send me an order because of a credit card mess up, they forced me to shop elsewhere and I discovered FTL. All I can say is I wish I discovered these folks sooner! ROCK ON GUYS!!! And THANK YOU.

    I’ve only ever had one bad batch of poppy seeds, and I was immediately reimbursed and sent another package! Overall the quality is consistently high. I’ve made lots of goodies with this product from Food To Live. If you’re looking for GOOD poppy seeds, I highly recommend you use Food To Live products.

  43. 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).

  44. 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!

    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.

  49. 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 [email protected] 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!!

    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.

    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.
