Product, communication and delivery review

Great communication, great products- made strawberry gum ice cream (with my own recipe) and it is a divine taste.
Tasmanian pepper berry gorgeous fruity peppery yum.
My fault for ordering kakdu plum by mistake- wanted Davidson plum, so now going to be using this vitamin C powerhouse sprinkled on things or in a smoothy.
Delivery well packaged and great ,safe delivery to door step.
