Relatively fresh poppy seads
It is very hard to find fresh poppy seeds in the USA that are not bitter. The bitterness is usually not an issue if used for decorative purposes (like on bagels) but become very important if used as the main filling. My main use is "makos beigli" -- a Hungarian roll with plenty of filling in it. Other use would be a strudel or pasta with poppy seed and honey.
Once tasted, the seeds should be neutral, slightly nutty in taste: this was the way we have bought it at the farmers market while I was growing up in Hungary. If they were bitter, you walked away.
These nuts are also bitter, although they carry an expiration tag that is more than a year year ahead. They should not be bitter at all, but they are, although not as bad as other brands I bought on-line. I kind of gave up on finding good quality poppy seeds here in the US. So I did not return them, partly because these are not stale (often happens with bitter poppy seeds) just bitter. I have used potato pure in the filling that takes away bitterness and made roll tasting OK.

The Awesomeness Abounds
Very fresh, not overly processed and washed or at all bleached, both of my orders came a day earlier than expected, which is always nice! I would recommend these to anyone making traditional Eastern European pastries
ProsGood price, good quality.
ConsWish you could pick exactly how much you could order, instead of pre determined bag sizes.

Excellent all around
These poppy seeds are excellent quality. No strange smell or taste, they have that natural nutty flavour. [I used to order from Amazon, but most of the seeds they carry are NOT GOOD anymore.]
Superior shipping also! I've ordered twice from the Superior Nut Company (both times: in the morning or around 12pm) and they have shipped the same day.
So like the title says: EXCELLENT ALL AROUND.
Product and shipping get 6/5

Perfect Poppy Seeds
What a pleasure to do business with this company. Product was very fresh, rich, earthy, and perfect for baking and the soap I am going to make for Christmas presents. Priced very reasonable and shipping was very fast. Since this is was exactly what I was expectin, I will be stocking up and refrigerating them as I am sure they will keep well. Buy it while I can, and the price stays fair. Thanks!
ProsFresh, not washed, but sifted, and good for you. Lots of omega 3's and protein for your diet. Will make a perfect exfoliating soap.

Taste the freshness. This product has none of that "machined-over" taste that so many competitors have. Will not order from anywhere else.

We'll be eating poppy seed chicken for a long while
Service was prompt and efficient. The bag of poppy seeds was sealed for freshness. Although I have not used the poppy seeds yet, they look amazing. This was a very enjoyable experience ordering from Superior Nut Company. I will be ordering again from them.
