Penzeys Spices Will Knock Your Socks Off

The best thing about the new Penzeys Spices at 4128 N. Oracle Road is how they put samples in little snuff pots to allow for a full aroma assessment.

Some advice: Sniff lightly when checking out the curry and Vietnamese cinnamon. A deep snort nearly crossed my eyes.

The store also stocks and amazing assortment of hard-to-find spices, including great salt and pepper varieties. The gray sea salt from France has been working wonders in my kitchen, and the pink peppercorns are a nice option to the black stuff most of us have grown accustomed to.

The prices are low, too. I walked away with a sizeable amount of spices for around $30. Being a huge softie, I also like all their heartfelt slogans—"Love People. Cook Them Tasty Food"—which I've seen plastered on billboards out by the I-10.

Check 'em out online over here.
