Not your store-brand paprika
I purchased both this and the sweet paprika as part of a gift for my husband (who missed his calling as a chef). He uses paprika in a number of his dishes, so we’ve tried numerous brands. We both agree we’ve never tasted any hot paprika as flavorful as this. Worth the price for the wonderful taste (the sweet paprika by the same company is also excellent).
