I ordered this as a gift for my husband. I ordered the option to choose the spices. Never once did I get an email to do that. I never received a shipping notice or tracking number. It showed up in my mailbox in a larger envelope reeking of spices and with a very clear return address on it. No way of hiding that. I can't speak to the quality of the spices yet, but this experience sure left a bad taste in my mouth.
