This is the BEST stuff. I used it once and my whole family had to have some. The box has 36 packets, but we managed to use it in a month because everyone HAD to have some. My whole family is eating green beans seasoned with this and loving it. Half a pack to a can makes them awesome. Even picky eaters who swore they did not like green beans are having them 3 times a week. Even the toddlers love them. Does great in dried beans too. No meat needed. Only problem is I can not find it in the store any more!!!! We are all having withdraws!! Have about 10 cans of green beans waiting for this to be restocked. The value is great. For less than 2 bucks and goes a long way! If you like ham flavor this is better than all other brands.
I love Goya Chick Peas and have been buying them for years. I will no longer purchase them because they now have an easy open can with a tab. This is some of the problems with the easy open can. 1) the tab breaks off 2) you can not open the can with a manual or electric can opener so if the tab breaks off you have to throw the can away. 3) You can cut yourself opening the can. I complained to Goya and they have no intention of changing back to the old fashion can in fact all of their beans now have the easy open tab. Maybe when sales go down goya will head the call for an old fashion can. I will now look for another brand like Progress or Rienzi.
