Top Review by Bergy

Well I want to give this a 5 star! The pecans were gobbled down with gusto. I could not enjoy them as i have a slight allergy to anise but I go along with the majority - they exclaimed 5 star all the way. So thanks, I would have loved to enjoy them but the headache would not be worth it.. I didn't see the Chinese 5 spice beore I chose to review it. Bev my guests thank you profusely and have said "Play it again Bergy"!
