Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.

I left seller feedback but haven't received a response to cure the problem, so I'm leaving feedback for other potential buyers to ensure they are aware of what they're getting. I've bought several 4 lb. bags of these peas, which come in a mylar/plastic bag. They've always been great so I decided to buy the larger 5 lb. bag, which comes in a burlap bag. The burlap bag and peas have a strong chemical smell, similar to kerosene or diesel fuel. The cooked product also had a strong chemical flavor. I do NOT recommend buying the 5 lb. bag as the product was not edible. I've already re-ordered 3 of the 4lb. bags because they've never been problematic and are better than what I can buy at the grocery store. Hopefully, the seller will respond and offer a refund for the "tainted" 5 lb. bag, AND, correct the problem.
Like another customer on here, I ordered the peas in the burlap bag and it taste like chemicals. If you can imagine what boil saw dust with a side of brake cleaner taste like, then that's what my split peas soup tasted like. I could not eat them and no matter how much seasoning you use, the taste won't go away. I ordered a 4 OZ bag from the same company before I bought this one and the peas were great. I don't understand what went wrong.
Usually this company is fresh I got a bag of peas that couldn’t be boiled soft. By the time I realized why they wouldn’t soften after some Internet research it was too late to get a refund, which is disappointing.
