Ground Poppy Seed has a much more fragrantsmell than whole poppy seeds. It is better but different, and some don't like it.
It should not be confused with being rancid or stale.It is more bitter than whole poppy, which has very little taste. When ground, the real flavor comes out, and need a larger amount of sweetener like sugar, honey, etc., to make it taste better.
Ground poppy seed flavor is definitely more intense. If you don't like that, please don't order Ground, but rather our Whole Poppy Seed.We know it's fresh!Our Whole Poppy Seeds are less than 3 months old, originate from Spain, and have a shelf-life of 12 months.We freshly grind to order, and ship within 1-2 days.

Refrigerated will last 3 months, or frozen up to one year.Do you want the more bitter but also intense Ground Poppy, or traditional Whole poppy?
