Hard to find whole berries

Excellent. These were exactly what I needed, and very hard to find in stores, and I received them in a timely manner.
Great deal and excellent quality

It's difficult to find whole allspice in stores except for small packages that are far more expensive per pound. Plus, the allspice berries from Spices Etc. tend to be much fresher, which makes for more flavor.
