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
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
Q: Are there any oils added as binders to the spices. I have an allergy to canola and cottonseed and have to always check spice mixes. I would love to try something like this if it's safe for me.Asked by Marissa M., May 2020
Q: When are subscriptions billed?Asked by David J., April 2020
Got this as a gift for my daughter who LOVES to cook. She is thrilled each month and regularly posts photos of her creations on the socials. She is always surprised by the unique spices she receives. Would highly recommend.
I love this subscription box! Each month a generous sampling of 4 spices arrives with some interesting recipes to try. I love to cook and this has been a fun way to get out of my comfort zone and try new recipes.
I purchased this subscription box as a Christmas gift to my brother. He loves to cook and has a career as a chef. He says the spices are all very unique and full of flavor. He looks forward to received new spices every month. Thank you for putting together a lovely package.
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.
I ordered this for my husband. Hes only recieved one thus far, but he loved it! He recieved some kind of curry, that he said was delicious, with easy to follow instructions. Highly recommend.
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.
Arrived just in time for an impromptu night in. Within a few minutes of starting the first recipe of Five Spice Chicken Thighs, the whole family wandered in asking about the fragrant smells wafting through the house. The fresh ground spices really stood out. We elected to pair it with mashed potatoes, mixed greens, and a Russian imperial stout. Delightful to have an eclectic and uncharacteristic pairing. We're looking forward to eating through the first shipment and surprising ourselves through three months that's follow of our subscription.
I actually love this subscription! I was getting bored with the same ol all the time. Now we didn't make any of the recipes. They looked amazing by the way and I've kept every one. We used them as a marinade. I buy in bulk and when I vacuum seal I put in some kind of marinade. These have really changed the game!!I even marinade brats!! Omg so amazing!! Love love
Excellent subscription to try different meals from different places in the world! Love that recipes are included for each spice packet. Makes preparing dinner a BREEZE!
My friend loved it. %100 recommend it for foodies.
