Okay, I love this brand and its the main one I always think of getting when I know I have to add herbs or spices to dishes.
Although I would give this brand, who clearly know their tastes and how to deliver it to your dinner table, a massive top star /heart rating, this particular one falls that little bit short in terms of its taste.
This is a blend of three types of peppers, so it's not a straightforward garlic+pepper taste.
The moment you open the seal you can smell it's more herby than expected.
The amount you use is entirely up to you. We just sprinkle this onto any dishes that require garlic as there seems to be no limit, it's just down to your taste.
On our first try, we added this to a chicken dish but when we dished the dinner up we could not taste a thing. Nor could we taste on the following attempts. We also added this to Pasta dishes but nothing. We tasted the pepper and because we added so much of the product to the dish we at least excpected the pepper to have some kick, but nothing.
I couldn't recommend this brand of garlic pepper if you want to taste something strong and to give a dish a kick, maybe a hint but not a lot.
This was an orange top but now a green top, just to make it easier to find in the aisle:)
This retails at £1.89
The Schwartz brand was established in 1889 by William Schwartz, the son of a German immigrant, in Halifax, Canada. It entered the British market in 1959.
This was one of my husbands greatest buys.
It comes in a glass jar like most dried herbs and cost £1.73 for the 45g jar (I probably would never have bought it thinking it too expensive).
The pepper inside the jar looks like herbs not pepper it is the green flakes but has the odd orangey tiny flake in it.

This in my opinion is very garlicy and you only need to add a little bit or you will stink.
I add it to most things I cook, but only one quick shake which would be a lot less than half a teaspoon. I add it to stew, cottage pie, soups and when I make a quiche.
When I first added it to a quiche although very nice I added a bit too much and you could taste it. I always think it is better if it is subtle and you can't actually taste the garlic.
It adds flavour to anything that is bland or doesn't really have a taste. As I cook a lot with quorn it always needs a bit of flavour and garlic pepper is ideal as you don't need to add lots of other herbs.
There isn't really a lot of information I can write about this I could waffle but don't see the point as the review is about the product, which is a definate for your cupboard.
The price might seem a little steep but it lasts so it is worth it.
