Rated 1 out of 5 by from 90% regular charcoal for double price I bought this for first time. 90% of bag is regular charcoal, only a few pieces had the flavored charcoal in it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Onion Garlic Paparika Been looking forward to getting this and honestly was very disappointed. It's regular charcoal with a couple of flavored ones. Quite frankly I would buy the kingsford regular charcoal and add my own seasoning. Didn't taste the flavor of it at all. I love Kingsford charcoal and will continue buying but as far as this, I wasted my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor Used a handful of these briquette on my regular charcoal to add some smokey flavor. I smoked vegetables and bread for 20 minutes, prior to cooking flank steak. Everything came out a great smokey flavor. Would highly recommend this next time you smoke anything

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a great time with this – new experience all ar First time using Kingsford's flavor charcoal and I've never had such a unique experience grilling. The flavor profile is so different, especially for fish which is what we used. Great with chicken too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed Respectfully, this product is a huge disappointment. I purchased a 13 lb bag of the Garlic, Onion, and Paprika at Lowes last weekend. The bag indicates that it is a mixture of regular Kingsford and the flavored briquets. I have emptied the back and found a total of 15 flavored briquets within the 13lb bag. I have completed two cooks, chicken and steaks and can't even detect any flavor. I love the concept, but the ratio of flavored vs normal briquets needs adjusted to increase the amount of flavored briquets per bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good!! I used this flavor while bbqn and it really helped and gave the meat and veggies a nice flavor. Smells amazing while burning and the food taste even better. I had compliments on the taste of my food but I owe it to this charcoal. I definitely tasted the garlic and onion flavor. I would recommend.
