Q: Hey Piquant, pretty sure from yer photos that yer shipment fits into a typical postal box i.e. envelope size, but could u confirm? I don't wanna go up to the post-office to p/u every month :) Ta! BAsked by Beth M., March 2020

Piquant Post answered...March 2020

Hi Beth!
That's correct that our monthly subscription product is sent to yer regular mailbox (if you live in the USA). We ship 'em in 6x10 flat envelopes via USPS first class mail to help keep our prices as low as possible. For international orders, we have to purchase postage for small parcels due to regulations, and while they are mailed in the same flat envelopes that fit in post boxes, each country's postal service has their own regulations on where to deliver items shipped as small parcels.

Yes, it should fit. The spices come in little, zip-lock, flat containers, and the total package is pretty flat and not much bigger than the recipe cards that are included.

Q: How many servings does each flavor kit make?Asked by David J., April 2020

Piquant Post answered...June 2020

Each spice packet will allow you to make a recipe serving at least 4 people at least once. Often, we send enough spices to make the recipe more than once, but that varies across blend and recipe.

It depends on the recipes as each recipe serves 4-8 people. I had to save some of mine for parties because of the serving sizes. I'm sure you can probably freeze some as well

Q: Can I do a prepaid 3-month subscription? Asked by Rachel M., March 2021

Piquant Post answered...March 2021

Hi! We only offer 6 & 12 month prepaid subscriptions. However, you can
create a subscription of any length by purchasing a monthly
renewing subscription and letting it renew the desired number of times
before cancelling.


Q: I only received one gift last month My daughter signed me up for a gift each month thru June When will my gift for February come? LynnAsked by Lynn B., February 2021

Piquant Post answered...February 2021

Hi Lynn, we always ship the monthly subscriptions on or near the 15th of each month! That means your Feb order is on the way. We send monthly subscriptions via USPS first class mail to your regular mailbox. There is no tracking on these for US recipients (only int'l orders). So, because there is no tracking we can't say exactly when it will arrive but usually it comes within 2 weeks. Please be advised that USPS has announced delivery delays due to the pandemic. We cannot guarantee delivery times.

This is by far my favourite spice subscription, I’ve tried a few different ones. The recipes are extremely easy to follow and delicious & I love that they have the spices for sale on their website in case you want to buy more for future recipes! They even have alternative recipes on their website in case you want to make something different with the spices you receive. So far I’ve made 2 out of the 4 recipes and I’m literally in LOVE! I’m basically a pro chef now thanks to Piquant Post!

I signed up for this box on a whim earlier this year and I loved it! I looked forward to seeing what new recipes I'd get every month. Not every recipe was for me (I wish there was a way to say no seafood recipes or like, only vegetarian recipes or something when you sign up) but they have alternative recipes for the spices you get on their website and I really liked that. If you're looking for a way to try new things with your cooking, Piquant Post gives you a good excuse at a really decent price.

This is a great way to try new recipes without having to pick up a bunch of different ingredients. The recipe cards are really helpful too.

Definitely enjoyed!

Well packaged and great quality. I like the fact that each spice has enough for 2 of the corresponding recipe. You can either make the featured recipe twice or use the leftover spice to create your own masterpiece.

Missing 1 order because of no postage

I bought this as a gift for my daughter and her boyfriend. The product has been good that she has received so far since January 2021. However March order was sent without postage, therefore they did not receive it. They could not get to the post office in time to pay the postage. So post office sent it back. They have now been shorted 1 month and I cannot get a hold of anyone to tell them. I tried replying to an email that was sent to me telling me the next order was sent. We should really be able to have a direct way to contact them.

Hi Angela, sorry to hear that your March order was incorrectly assessed postage due by your local post office.!This is the first we're hearing of the issue from you and we will follow up directly to make it right, including sending a replacement. In short, we of course pay the full postage due and have been approved to use the mail class we use.. but occasionally the USPS clerks make mistakes and think our mailpieces should have been rated in a more expensive postage class. They don't know their own rules. Not your problem, but just wanted you to know that we know how to deal with this when we are alerted. We will contact the local postmaster in your delivery zip code to have...

We have received 3 shipments so far and this was the first chance we had to make one of the menu items. We went for the Bali Spiced Strip Steak and that seasoning was amazing! That was the most flavorful strip steak I have had in a long time. We are excited about the other items we have as well. We bough cod just so we could make another recipe this week. The price is so good for what you get and the recipes look so good.

Love that each month has a different country where the spices are coming from. By doing this we've been trying so many new recipes that we wouldn't have come across before. I also love that you have the option to skip a month if you need to, right on the website. The only thing I wish was different was that there was an option to purchase some of the spices individually after trying them.

Living in a rural area it’s often difficult to find specialized spices to change up your meal plan. And it stinks to commit to a whole bottle if you end up not caring for that flavor. Our first dish we tried was the Turkish eggplant recipe- not a fan. But this month’s Indian spices have been great. Aloo gobi was so fantastic the first time that we made it again within a week. Granted, not every dish is for every person but we do like trying new things. We’ve enjoyed our globally themed dinner nights.
