401041401041B0014AWBS4A26A64X86VL1R4Snowbrocade0051159488000Tasty, soothing and actually helps enhance immunity!Traditional Medicinals Echinacea Plus is an herbal remedy in tea form designed to support the immune system. Echinacea is a Native American herb and is one of the most commonly used herbal medicines in the US and Europe. This tea delivers the immune boosting properties of organic Echinacea in a pleasant tasting blend of organic West Indian lemongrass leaf and organic spearmint. Echinacea Plus has a serene and subtle lemon-mint flavor that is exceptionally comforting for colds, and soothing to scratchy raw throats. Echinacea provides a slight tingle on the tongue due to the presence of alkylamides.

Traditional Medicinals recommends drinking 5-6 cups a days as soon as symptoms appear and then gradually reducing the dosage as symptoms improve.

Numerous clinical studies have examined the effects of Echinacea. Echinacea stimulates activity of cells that fight infection in our bodies and increases the number of these cells such as the white blood cells and lymphocytes. These immune cells attack bacteria, viruses and abnormal cells, including cancer. Echinacea has a positive effect on wound healing, lessens symptoms and speeds recovery from viruses.

Echinacea also has anti-inflammatory properites which aids recovery from psoriasis and eczema and may help arthritis. It also may increase resistance to candida, bronchitis and herpes and other infectious conditions. Echinacea should not be used continually for any longer than 5-8 weeks.

401046401046B0014AWBS4A3KWZQ2OD9U2DVRosemarie Caiazzo1351274918400Best tea ever . . . for the benefitsI think people these days would benefit from being schooled in writing an appropriate review. Really now. I'm on here because of the person that gave this product 2 stars. This product is well known in the voice over/singing business - as the best tea for the benefits it provides. You do have to steep it a while before drinking & in my opinion, the tea is not very paletable. But I am willing to drink it for the benefits it provides. If you are a singer or voice over artist - it does exactly what it says: it coats your throat & you can sing or talk for a very long time. It's worth a try & the Slippery Elm DOES indeed coat your throat.

Thanks ~

401047401047B0014AWBS4AI3ELE6MV8BDBKolora0251323216000ImpressiveI never rate things on here but I had to make an exception for this tea. Usually any hot drink will alleviate some discomfort in a sore throat, but this throat coat tea goes above and beyond that. No matter if it's a sore throat from sinus drainage, a cold, or whatever else, this tea has always cleared up all the itchy, scratchy, and painful problems I've had for at least a couple of hours at a time. That's more than a lot of medicine is able to do.

401049401049B0014AWBS4A8KNTZK0ZJBCFA. Weber1441194739200backordered one month, finally shippedMy daughter is a singer and loves this tea. I don't drink it.

The supplier (Vitaminlife) had this item on backorder, which happens sometimes, I understand. But their communication about the status was poor. I had to email and then telephone, to find out when it might be shipped.
401050401050B0014AWBS4A2RN7QMGL8BP73Ryan Cottrell "BETTE FAN"01021168300800This tea blows!!!Not worth the price!!! Has a very bitter taste!!!!! You have to add a ton of honey to it to make it worth a damn. Does not help coat the throat in anyway!!!!!!
401051401051B001VNGKHWA27E44IWS3B7VDsilhouette_of_enchantment "zenfully awake."252511290556800Don't let the picture of delicious ginger cubes fool youFrontier's candy product actually comes in the form of flat, stringy ginger chips that seem freeze-dried rather than crystallized. Although the ginger is hot,sweet and spicy (and I like that), each piece was difficult to chew. Often, it felt like chewing cud (sorry, too much information I know), but I was literally left with a stringy, wet wad in my mouth after eating each piece. Couldn't even swallow...more like eating ginger gum than candies.

I didn't even finish off the entire bag. Ginger candy is one of my favorite candies -- up there with chocolate for me. Not being able to finish off the ginger, tells you something. I only eat this stuff when I'm desperate for something to snack on, and even afterward, ick. There isn't even a calming medicinal effect I usually experience with ginger. It's more of a laxative-like effect than tummy nirvana.

I prefer Reed's crystallized ginger and The Ginger People's crystallized ginger candies to this stuff. I wish Amazon would take the picture down. A little truth in advertising please. Put the real picture of ginger chips up to stop confusing the buyer.

Sorry, but I will not be buying this again.
401052401052B001VNGKHWAVG9L28T4KYVLMarksofd "Mark"202041266019200Irregular ginger wafers, not cubesI ordered this item because the illustration shows ginger pieces resembling the best crystallized ginger I've ever purchased, from the large counter jar at Fortnum & Mason in London, perfect cubes of the tenderest most delicately flavored ginger ever. These Frontier pieces are irregularly shaped flat slices, stuck together, and have a sharp taste, much sharper than Australian crystallized ginger even. I'm guessing Frontier got its stock from China. There is no country of origin listed on the label. I suppose I'll wait for Trader Joe's to get some Australian ginger in for my next purchase. Or until I cash in my IRA for a couple pounds of Fortnum & Mason candied ginger on my next trip to London.
401053401053B001VNGKHWA18BPQNBWC13WXMichaela Barber "MBarber"9911289347200Not goodI bought the 16oz package after my previous supplier was back ordered. The ginger was dark, springy and had an off flavor. Maybe I am just spoiled, but I threw out the whole lot, after I received my 5lbs from previous supplier.
401054401054B001VNGKHWA3F0RIE1JWEFBLDonna Parrish3351287532800Great Ginger!I particularly like this ginger -- it is hotter than some -- much more actual ginger to it. And, it is reasonably priced! The actual pieces are flat and not cubes as shown.
401055401055B001VNGKHWAYZ5VIN8ZFXGWStarLover1111345939200Gone Way WrongProduct does not resemble the picture at all. I was expecting the cubed ginger and got slices of dried-out, tasteless nothing. The burn was there but not the taste.
401056401056B001VNGKHWA2LB7BM1EWRCYIKR0011344124800not a fanI expected slices despite the pictures of cubes, so that wasn't a problem. The problem was the slices were super saturated in sugar and gummy/sticky to boot. I wasn't looking for candy. I was looking for ginger to aid in digestion made palatable by a coating of sugar. That is not what this product is. Ginger as an incredibly strong, pungent taste that is all but unnoticeable in this product.
401057401057B001VNGKHWAFOYAE94S3AYNTextBook100011325635200texture too "sugary"I like my ginger with a nice strong flavor, which these consistently have. But...the quality is just too sugary for me. It is like eating a sugar cube. I have had others bought online that are much less crumbly in the mouth and don't have a sugary, gritty feel. Try others before this one. my opinion only; everyone has a preference.
401058401058B001VNGKHWA3CK4OP7Z0F6YAEm0031325548800So-so, not enough ginger flavorWasn't spicy enough for me -- too sugary. Ginger cubes probably would've preserved more of a "ginger spice" taste, but wafters are thinner and it was more sugary than I anticipated. Still tasted good though, but I didn't feel that spicy warmth from eating these.
401059401059B001VNGKHWA1HKM2BPOGPR4Npmjokay1251321056000Great GingerThis crystallized ginger is excellent for and upset stomach or for dealing with bloating. The taste takes a little getting used to, but after awhile it's rather refreshing.
401060401060B003V1AP7IA3JRCCZFKAF52MMG0051314230400Love it.Ok, I actually hate Marmite, but my English husband loves the stuff. I was so happy to find Marmite on Amazon and especially in the new squeezy bottle. Any one who has used Marmite from a jar will tell you what a pain it is to get the gooey black gold out of the bottom of the jar. Problem solved with the new squeezy bottle. Thank you Amazon.

401062401062B0048ILS3IAY12DBB0U420BGary Peterson1151336176000Delicious! Outstanding! Five StarsI picked up a jar of Dickinson's Vanilla Curd (9.5 ounce) in the jams and jellies section of a nearby Fresh and Easy Market. F & E are an English company and they have a lot of British items in the store. Well, I'd never heard of Vanilla Curd but it seemed interesting and one of the instructions said it could be used as a spread in the manner of jams or jellies. Okay, into the cart it went and I had a spread of it on toast the next morning. Oh, my! It was delicious! Overwhelming! I can't believe how good this stuff is! It's smooth and creamy and has a real nice strong vanilla taste. I assumed it was something manufactured in England and imported, but in looking at the label I find it's from The Dickinson Family, Inc. (since 1897) of Oxnard, California, who manufacture English-style things. Well, I just can't imagine the real English item being any better. Outstanding!

401063401063B0001KZ8ROA1KI56WBF28VTQSeattleMom1151177027200The best pie ever!!!!You haven't lived until you've tasted a pie made with little wild mountain blackberries. Definitely worth every penny! A treat for a special occasion. Perfect with vanilla ice cream. Mmmmmmm...good for a 4th of July treat too. My family has lived in the Pacific Northwest since the late 1800s and these blackberries have always been prized by loggers in the region. The patches are extremely hard to find now...don't mistake them for the big, seedy domestic blackberries that grow everywhere. These are tart and delicious.
401064401064B0001KZ8ROA2GOLLIOATN335D. Moore0051320624000Wild BlackberriesMy stepdad loved the berries. A little bit expensive to ship them; but for a birthday gift, they were very much appreciated.
401065401065B000Y2CTIUAIQDUKFB4X38MVonMalcolm0041335916800A Good Base For A Meatless ChiliBy itself this chili is pretty good, but one dimensional (faux meat in chili sauce): 3.75 Stars. -But this product is great (4+ Stars) if you use it as a 'meat' and spice base for your chili: add tomatoes, onions, peppers, beans, etc. Be warned 10 pounds (and I did receive 10 pounds) is a lot of chili -especially if you add to it! -One half of a three plus pound bag filled a very large pan (sans additional veggies).
401066401066B000Y2CTIUA2QMRWL1KMOZQRMovie Lover61611224028800NOT a 10 lb boxI have purchased items from Fantastic Foods before and I love all of their products. Easy to make for quick meals and they taste great. I was very excited to see that Amazon.com has these items in bulk so I purchased a few. All products arrived in great condition except the Vegetarian Chili Mix arrived in a bag and not a box like the other items and it is NOT 10 lbs. Judging by the size of it compared to the other items, it weighs around 5 lbs. Amazon.com customer service is sending a replacement, hopefully it will be the right size.
401067401067B000MPK55SADMJALX650CKTS. Maya6851235606400Very PleasedGreat price. Arrived quickly. Product was exactly as I expected. I was very pleased.
401068401068B000GGY5TUA17HMM1M7T9PJ1Timothy B. Riley2251334016000Authentic, tasty and freshI have been getting into Moroccan cuisine in the last year or so and have been building my Moroccan pantry. The first products that I purchased were Ras El Hanout, Preserved Lemons and Harissa Paste, which are fundamental and essential items if you want to tackle this cuisine. Kefta is a more specialized spice blend but it very nice to have on hand.

Kefta seems have less of an Indian influence that Ras El Hanout. Like many traditional spice blends - each person, restaurant, and shop has their own, "secret" mix. Are far as instantly noticeable ingredients, the usual suspects are coriander, turmeric and paprika. The spearmint and marjoram give this blend both high notes and a little more depth. One of my favorite pastimes is to guess what the "other spices" are in a blend. I would imagine that I am probably wrong more often that right but it is fun to try to identify those trace fragrances and tastes that are often hidden behind stronger flavors. My best guess here is that mustard powder and a stronger ground pepper (maybe cayenne) help to round out this blend.

The recipe for Moroccan Meatballs that is listed on the product page for this item produces a good and delicious meal. Deep-frying the meatballs help to give them a little better texture than if you just brown them in a skillet. I use pretty much the same ingredients as a jumping off point for some less-than-traditional recipes. I use equal parts 80/20 ground beef and ground lamb to which I add all of the other ingredients in the meatball recipe. Instead of forming them into balls I make hamburger patties (about 7oz. each). After grilling them I coat one half of the bun with Harissa paste and the other with Mint Chutney . I use sliced preserved lemons instead of pickles skip the cheese (BTW, I use about 50% more Kefta spice blend than the recipe calls for when I make these burgers.)

One thing that surprises a lot of my guests is that I use a little Kefta when I make tacos, tamales and chile relleno. For some reason the blend really adds a pleasing extra dimension to my Tex-Mex dishes. Kefta is one of those spice blends that I will always keep on hand.
