a HUMONGOUS bag of bay leaves!!!
 November 9, 2015
"I'm giving this product 5 stars for quality, but I suggest you do some soul-searching before purchasing it, because it is truly a HUGE bag! I actually laughed out loud when I first spotted it in the box with my other items! The bag is about a foot long, 9" wide and about 6" thick. Unfortunately, you can't just squeeze out the air because you'll crush the leaves. I put the whole silver bag with the leaves in it into a big plastic bag and then into the freezer. It takes up a LOT of space on the shelf. I was thinking that maybe if someone had one of those vacuum-sealing gizmos, they might be able to lay the leaves in a single layer in separate bags, vacuum seal them, then pile the bags on top of each other to save space. I also thought about trying that without a sealer and just placing the leaves in a layer in individual plastic bags, but I think that would expose them to too much air, and then they wouldn't be good for much of anything. This product defies my usual rule that buying in bulk is always the better way to go. I think, unless you use a ton of bay leaves or have a lot of people to share this bag with, it's better just to get the small jar and pay more, or you'll probably be staring at this bag for many, many years to come, wondering what in the heck you were thinking when you bought it....But hey, on the bright side, at least it's one more thing you can put in your will to leave to your heirs! ;-)"

LOTS of leaves!!
 October 30, 2015
"Picture a one pound bag of potato chips. This bag of bay leaves is that big. The bag is stuffed full. There are thousands of leaves (or seems so). The quality is fine. These are large leaves. Unless you run a restaurant or have a huge extended family or LOTS of friends that cook, this size may not be for you. One pound of leaves is a lot of leaves..."
