No Good
This was advertised as a "powder". In fact with was medium sized crystals - not a powder. I would not buy from this site again.

Thanks the order arrived quickly as usual. Just disappointed that the Alum that reads POWDER on your site is actually grainy not real powder form. I give it a 5 because of your quality service.

Spice Order
It was a great value. Plus, I was having problems getting a local source at the grocery store for some reason and it is critical to making crunchy dill pickles! :-)

I found everything I was looking for at Spice Sage. I have heard that many spices are filled or diluted with foreign stuff. Feel confident with Spice Sage.
