Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty cool idea This was definitely something new, thought I'd give it a shot. As charcoal they work fine, just as functional as normal Kingston charcoal. Not sure how much effect the flavor actually has though. You can definitely smell it a bit, but doesn't translate a lot to the food..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a strong enough flavor I really wanted to like the Kingsford Signature Flavor Briquets in Basil Sage Thyme but the flavor just wasn't strong enough for me. I could smell the scent of Basil, Sage and Thyme while they were burning but it didn't translate to the food very well. We also had a hard time getting them to stay lit. We kept adding lighter fluid to them to make them burn. Next time I'll stick with unflavored.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy wisely We tried a small bag of the Basil, Sage and Thyme. We added some to charcoal when grilling and was very pleased. Excellent flavor. I say buy wisely because we gladly purchased an 8 lb. bag. There were 9....yes, only 9....of the Basil, Sage and Thyme flavored charcoals in the bag. The remaining was just basic Kingsford charcoal. So if buying be sure to buy a bag of just the flavored charcoal and not the mixture as I would figure that what we got was standard, normal mixture. Hopefully we will be able to find bags of just the flavored charcoals in the future. So just a 3 star review due to our disappointment with the 8 lb. bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has a good flavor! I tried Kingsford® Signature Flavors Briquets — Basil Sage Thyme to help season up my BBQ! Usually when BBQing the food can taste like nothing but lighter fluid and thats just nasty. So why not try flavored infused charcoal, anything beats lighter fluid flavor! I have to say this product was surprisingly good! It really had a good punch of the 3 seasonings, it definitely did NOT taste like lighter fluid, at all! And that's a huge win for me and my family! I definitely will be buying more this summer and trying all the flavors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! My husband grills frequently and he loves it! My picky sons even said that it was the best chicken that he’s ever grilled! I hope that Kingsford keeps making this Signature flavor because it really is awesome and we can’t wait to try it with other meats and seafood!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells great! Smells amazing and makes my steaks taste amazing. I was a bit skeptical at first of these leaving any flavor in my grilled food. Boy was I amazed at the amount of flavor these leave. Would recommend if you love to grill out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford - Kingsford® Signature Flavors Briquets I received the package of Kingsford - Kingsford® Signature Flavors Briquets — Basil Sage Thyme, and our family was very happy and excited by the flavors imparted during cooking. The three main flavors of Basil, Sage, and Thyme are noticeable but overwhelming. It was a nice change to not have to manually Season food, but to have the flavors cooked in, so easily, by using the innovation of flavored briquets. We look forward to trying other Kingsford products this spring and summer!!
