lots of weird, yellowish seeds that don't taste so great- if you have a handful, the discolored ones make the whole mouthful taste off. it's the same with the sunflower seeds. Also, these are super thin, not the plump seeds I get out of my own pumpkins. So, eh.
This coconut oil tastes great. I've tasted some funky ones in the past and will stick with Nutiva. We take it by the spoonful, cook with it, condition our hair, moisturize our skin, etc. The stuff is awesome. I don't waste money on body lotion anymore, I just use coconut oil and a little goes a really long way. Much more economic, so much more pure, and less wasteful. Who knew you didn't need all those ingredients to make your skin look healthy?!

I've been using GSE for YEARS and the stuff tastes awful but works wonders. HOWEVER, the new bottle I received tastes good and that's just not right. There is no bitterness whatsoever and the packaging is different- different color and no pullout label with instructions for use. I'm highly doubtful of this product's efficacy. It's tastes sweet and light, NOTHING like every other bottle of GSE I have ever bought from any store. Very disappointed as the previous product killed ringworm on my cats and I'm not confident this one will do the trick should I have to deal with that again. Bummer dude.

Blah, tasted like a fortune cookie, weird... Weird texture as well. Tried to dip in my coffee and turned spongy. Yuck. Way too pricey to boot. Highly, highly overrated and overpriced. I feel bad for those who said this was the best almond cookie they've ever tried!
Can't believe I missed that tidbit. Won't order again.
Heads up- Contains yeast extract AKA MSG. Would not recommend and would not buy again. Dishonest, sneaky labeling not appreciated.
WAAAAYYYYYY too salty. Won't buy again. No doubt the salt is the bad kind; white sugar's and flour's cheap, evil cousin.
This honey is beyond delicious. I have a very hard time putting the spoon down. not only that but it sounds like these guys do what they do ethically as well, something everyone should consider when they give their money to a business- vote for the ones who do it right and do it well.
These are alright. I've never seen such tiny, thin sunflower seeds before, so I don't know what that's about. Also there are A LOT of discolored seeds-yellow or yellowish that taste a little off. Thought maybe my first bag was a freak, but every bag I've ordered has many off-colored, funky tasting seeds that should have been picked out, so I would definitely say quality control is lacking. I have the exact same problem with Now's pumpkin seeds, soooo.... Think I'll give up with this brand and try a different organic one for comparison. Can't say i would recommend this product.
I can't get eggs from pastured chicken where I live and refuse to buy eggs from chickens treated like machines, suffering in horrific conditions in some factory farm. No one needs to suffer just so I can have a cookie or muffin. The baked goods I make with this egg replacer taste superior to the ones I used to make with eggs!
