Product Description

NOTE: These bottles have a "Best By" date of 11/2017.

What is a "Best By" date? (In response to review)
A Best By date is solely to indicate freshness, and is used by manufacturers to convey when the product is at its peak. That means the food does not expire in the sense of becoming inedible. For unrefrigerated foods, there may be no difference in taste or quality, and expired foods won't necessarily make people sick. In addition, when properly stored (cool, dark location tightly closed), ground black pepper will generally stay at best quality for about 3 to 4 years. (Our pepper is stamped with a 2 year date when it is produced) Commercially packaged ground black pepper does not spoil, but it will start to lose potency over time and not flavor food as intended - the storage time shown is for best quality only."

Distinctive quality, very finely ground - only the finest berries are used. Salt free. 7.1 oz containers.

  1. Pepper had expired when received! 1 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 8th 2018

    I purchase 4 black pepper and everyone had a November 2017 expiration date. Do you sell items that are out of date?

    McNess Store Response:
    Thank you for asking. We do have some black pepper that is currently on sale on our website for half price that has a "Best By" date of November 2017. We are required to put a 2 year "Best Buy" date our our spices and a 4 year date on our extracts. We did note that date on the ordering page, and I apologize if it wasn't clear enough and you missed that.

    You may be wondering what a "Best By" date means, and I found this description of on the Internet that I think clearly explains it:

    "The dates solely indicate freshness, and are used by manufacturers to convey when the product is at its peak. That means the food does not expire in the sense of becoming inedible. For un-refrigerated foods, there may be no difference in taste or quality, and expired foods won't necessarily make people sick."

    I also found this regarding pepper:

    "Properly stored, ground black pepper will generally stay at best quality for about 3 to 4 years. No, commercially packaged ground black pepper does not spoil, but it will start to lose potency over time and not flavor food as intended - the storage time shown is for best quality only."

    I hope this information is helpful. We would be more than happy to refund you for the pepper you purchased. Please call us at 608-424-0405.
