The concept behind their site is pretty interesting. If you subscribe to their monthly flavour kits, you get 3 freshly ground, recipe-ready flavour packs, delivered directly to your home. Every kit comes with recipe cards, useful information, and tips. As far as price goes, at $7/$8 a month, I’d say these packs are pretty affordable if you’re looking to get creative with your cooking 🙂

All the spice mixes I sampled are well balanced and packed with flavour. I also noticed that they keep well in the little resealable sachets they come in. All the varieties are unique in their own way; out of the ones I tried so far, I’d say the Shiitake Burger Bomb ( perfect for seasoning patties ) and the Smoky Memphis Rub ( it has a very strong celery paprika fragrance which I love ) are my top choices.❤
