    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.

    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.

    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 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!

    Decent product. WGN seems fresher, but pretty good quality. I’m trying a 4lb bag next to see how the quality is on different size products.

    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.

    Seeds arrived on time. These seeds were perfect, nice potent smell and great quality. Usually I need more seeds to bring out their flavor in my muffins, but Food To Live really delivered. I will definitely be purchasing these again.

    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.
