I have loved SAF yeast for decades and I don't need to review it here. It's awesome! What I really want to review is the Waffle Pantry store. I recently placed an order and they took such good care of me that I told many friends and they also ordered from Waffle Pantry. Their customer service is legendary and their packaging and ship time can't be beat. I will DEFINITELY order from them again and again!

As most other recent reviews here due to Covid 19, there was no yeast to be found in the stores and Amazon had sky high prices such as 2 of the small 3 pack of Red Star for $21. I searched and found Saf yeast here. Price was still reasonable even with shipping. My yeast was shipped the same day and arrived 2 days later. I don't know anything about waffle making but will always come back here to Waffle Pantry to get my yeast because of their excellent service and not taking advantage of people already struggling by raising the price of essential ingredients. THANKS A MILLION!!!

I was in need of yeast and wanted to try this brand. I looked online and because the COVID 19 situation had impacted supply chain most places were sold out. My local grocery stores were also out of little packets of regular brands of yeast! Your store had SAF in stock and although slightly higher price, was still reasonably priced, and available so I ordered. It shipped the same day and arrived within 2 days! You do pay for the 2 day shipping but in these times it was worth it. Very pleased with the availability and service. I will be ordering from you again.
