I HAVE HAD WATKINS BLACK PEPPER SINCE I WAS A CHILD IN THE 1940'S. ALTHOUGH I HAVE LIVED AND TRAVELED THROUGHOUT THE US AND EUROPE, WATKINS HAS THE MOST FLAVORFUL OF ALL BLACK PEPPER I HAVE ENCOUNTERED. EB

My mother used Watkins pepper when we lived in Iowa. I will use no other and give Watkins pepper to friends and family for Christmas and Birthdays. Everyone I have shared it with absolutely loves it.
Thank you for a wonderful product. I also use the wide variety of extracts.

My husband's family always used and swore by the black pepper. My MIL made sure her boy always had at least one can in the pantry. Going on 50 years, we still keep at least one can handy. Always wonderful, always fresh. I've never used a better ground pepper.

I never liked the taste of store bought pepper, but when I used Watkins pepper for the first time, I was in for a shock! I like to use really good red sockeye salmon for sandwiches. I poured the pepper into my salmon with some Mayonaisse, like I normally do, shake, shake, shake! The first bite told me I used too much. It was hot! hot! hot! But, it really tasted good! I've been in love with Watkins Pepper ever since! I use it in my soups, on my salads, veggies, meats, everything concerning the main meals.

My parents first became Watkins distributors when I was about 10 years old. (I'm now 63) From that date we used only Watkins pepper and all other spices, in fact we were totally a Watkins home. All my life, my parents would give me Watkins products for birthdays and Christmas. They have both passed now and I have used up all the supply they had. I tried other peppers this year and they have no taste. My husband and son are waiting for the best pepper in the world. Lois Ashton-Vienneau

We tried Watkins Black Pepper several years ago. We purchased it from Wal Mart. We are very satisfied with it, moreso than any other black pepper. It is very fine ground. However Wal Mart no longer carries it. I have since ordered it from J. R. Watkins website and have been very pleased. Not only is the black pepper the best but J.R. Watkins' prices are reasonable and products are as advertised and shipped in a timely manner. Thanks, J.R. Watkins for quality products.

My grandmother purchased Watkins products for many years. They were always top-notch. I had not tried the Watkins black pepper before my order. It was remarkable. It is the best I have had. If you like pepper, you will be very pleased with this product.

My husband's mother couldn't live without Watkins pepper (and vanilla flavoring also). We have actually drove 30 miles to purchase it back before the Internet. Up until a year ago our pharmacy here in our small town carried Watkins products but after 50 yrs. they went out of business. I now have to order it Online. My husband refuses to live without his Watkins pepper and I have to admit I can even tell a difference between it and any other brand. I have even given it as Christmas presents because it isn't just my husband who is "hooked". His sister, nephews, nieces, etc. also use it. Nothing else will take its place once you use one tin of it. I am thankful I can order it and that it has maintained it's excellent flavor over all these years.

Most folks think black pepper is all the same. I thought so.... Until I tried the Watkins black pepper. Hugh difference! The taste is unbelievable. Sure,it's expensive. Specially when you add in shipping. But ya know what? It's damn well worth it.
