I'll weigh in here. Their spices are fresher to McCormick, and they have a great selection. I actually think they are cheaper, though, not counting shipping. I wouldn't say that Penzey's is the be all and end all of spices - there are other comparable places to get spices - but they are, IMO, better than supermarket choices.

Can't resist asking: why is that? People on the BB are always getting excited talking about Penzey's. Are their spices all superior to say, McCormick, or is it just their variety and their intriquing blends that are exciting? Also, I'm guessing it's pretty expensive? TIA, I'm curious.
"Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. We need to have the strength and power of a football player, the stamina of a marathon runner and the concentration of a brain surgeon. But, we need to put all this together while moving at high speeds on a cold and slippery surface while 5 other guys use clubs to try and kill us. Oh, yeah, did I mention that this whole time we're standing on blades 1/8 of an inch thick. Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. Next question."
