Thanksgiving Poppy Seeds

Help Spread the Word!

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for food and family.  I always enjoy this season, and I look forward to it more every year.  This year, I have decided to try out some new pastry recipes that utilize poppy seeds.  I will be including some of my favorites after I get feedback from others, but I thought I would begin documenting my experiences here.  I decided a good place to start would be to discuss where to buy the best Thanksgiving Poppy Seeds.

If you are looking for the top seeds during any given time, check out my Updated List of Best Unwashed Poppy Seeds.


I made the mistake of waiting until today to purchase poppy seeds for my Poppy Seed Kolache.  If you are a regular member of this site, you know how difficult it can be to find quality unwashed poppy seeds during normal times.  It is even more difficult during holidays, especially BIG holidays.  I looked at some of my favorite brands, and I found an option for people in my position.

Thanksgiving Poppy Seed Recommendation

As I looked through my List of the Best Poppy Seeds, there is one company that beats all of the others in terms of delivery.  That company is Lone Goose Bakery, and they sell the highest quality Blue Bird Poppy Seeds.  These English poppy seeds are packed with the bitter and earthy flavor that keep poppy seed connoisseurs coming back for more.  They are a bit more pricey than other companies, but it is definitely worth it for special occasions.  I definitely consider Thanksgiving a special occasion, and you should too!

Fast Shipping for Blue Bird Seeds

I regularly purchase from Lone Goose Bakery, so I am very familiar with their shipping schedule.  To help guarantee delivery before Thanksgiving, you should order before 2 pm cst on Monday (tomorrow).  All of their orders are shipped with USPS Priority shipping.  That is 2 day shipping for a majority of the United States.  If you order after 2 pm on Monday (or you live in Priority 3 Day areas like AK or HI), you can still receive your order before Thanksgiving, but it will cost you a little extra.  Lone Goose Bakery also offers USPS Priority Express (Next Day) Shipping on all orders with an upgrade fee.  That means the procrastinators that wait until Tuesday to order can still receive their package in time, as long as they order before 2 pm and select Next Day shipping.

Possible Thanksgiving Poppy Seed Delays

It is important to remember that this time of year is crazy for the shipping companies.  I am confident in the abilities of the Blue Bird Poppy Seeds to be packaged quickly and for USPS to receive the items, but USPS does occasionally experience delays around Thanksgiving.  That is why it is even more important for you to order as soon as possible.  I am purchasing as soon as I finish with this post, and I might even upgrade to Priority Express just to help guarantee early arrival.

Don’t Miss Out

Thanksgiving is an important holiday, and you don’t want to spend it without the necessary ingredients.  Don’t delay any further, make sure you prepare now to ensure you have the best day possible!


Hopefully, you weren’t foolish like me, and you have already procured the necessary ingredients to ensure your Thanksgiving goes off without a hitch.  For those of you in my position, I hope that this has given you some relief.  There is still time for you to purchase great Thanksgiving Poppy Seeds, and have them arrive before the big day.  Make sure not to wait!  The longer you delay, the more it will cost you to upgrade shipping to overnight.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me.  Yes, I do read all of the emails, and I check them (at least) daily.
