Frontier Natural Products Organic Whole Pumpkin Seeds De-Shelled -- 16 oz
LOVE these, confused by other reviewers
First of all, these pumpkin seeds are awesome. A big bag of de-shelled RAW pumpkin seeds that last awhile.
Second of all, I'm confused by the other reviewers, and I think maybe they are used to roasted and/or shelled pumpkin seeds, not these de-shelled, raw ones. Yes, if I grabbed a handful out of the bag, I would think "Yikes, that's bitter!" Instead, I toss them in a little avocado oil, sprinkle on some rosemary and sea salt, then put them in the oven on a cookie sheet. Next thing you know, I've got a snack that my whole family goes crazy for. We LOVE this product.

Stale and Bitter
These are the worst pumpkin seeds I've ever had!! I love most Frontier products, but these are TERRIBLE. The shelf life on the bag was good for another couple of years after I received these, so it's not that they'd expired, but they are stale and chewy in a way not typical of pumpkin seeds, and they taste bitter and almost like perfume?! I don't know, there's no describing it, but they are completely inedible. A huge waste of money and a giant disappointment. Yuck...

Disappointing quality of this product
I've been buying Frontier spices for years, always exceptional quality. Not so great with these pumpkin seeds. Stale seeds (though the bag had 2 years of shelf life left according to expiration date on it). 80% of the bag seeds were brown-yellowish, shivered-looking. Tasted stale and bitter when lightly roasted. Complete waste of money.
