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.
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!
Wow, so glad to hear you're enjoying our service!! Thanks for the great review, Sarah. 🤗
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 wonderful, reasonably priced way to add a surprise to your month! I have tried all the recipes so far and they have all been winners. I like the fact that the products sent are currated to a specific region. It is amazing!
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.
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.
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
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.
Immediately after purchase last year, I contacted Piquant Post to cancel any recurring subscription. I only wanted one year as a gift. They did not, and I was just charged $120 again.
I think the spices are okay, and there were some interesting ideas. However, when we got our second December shipment (since they didn’t cancel me) it was the exact same spices as last year. That means they are charging you an additional year for the same products. I probably wouldn’t be so annoyed that they didn’t cancel me if something unique has showed up.
Hi Beth, sorry you ended up unsatisfied. We offer great customer service if you actually reach out to us for support (evidence: we responded to your email today on Xmas eve in ~15 mins). We send multiple reminder emails before any charges are made and have a generous refund policy - we will refund *any* unshipped items if you forget to cancel after it renews. Plus there is a 2 week grace period after renewal. We refunded Beth for the balance of unshipped items.
Finally, we don't recommend that customers have our renewal reminder emails sent to an email address that you don't check anymore like Beth did (we only know this because we responded to her email and her auto-responder told us that she...
We subscribed to a few different spice kits to see which we liked best...this was far and away the best at this price point! We have been really pleased with all the recipes, they've produced restaurant-quality food every time! And lots of unique stuff I'd never have thought to make. I highly recommend!
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.
Have recieved 2 boxes (really envelopes) and ordered extra of a couple spices-they were that good. Communication is quick and courteous. The recipes cards are physically a good quality and the recipes I have made have been good. Excellent value overall. Definitely see keeping this subscription going for quite a while.
I got this as a gift for my mom for Christmas. She doesn't like 'stuff' and we're trying to do more experience-based gifts together. This was perfect! We made a bunch of the recipes together and then of course got to serve the family the dinner! If anything, we got too many spices in each month's box, we still have lots of recipes to make :) The spices are very high quality, and it's an excellent thing to try if you want to broaden your food horizons!
I found out about Piquant spices since it was a gift for a friend. Then I gave it as a gift! Wonderful recipes, easy to follow, good to have single meal spices, so guests can try many options. Will even get my own subscription soon!
I love to cook and I love spices, any and all. This subscription box is my favorite bar none. Such a nice variety to try every month, recipes too. Nice quantity of spices, I always get more than one use from it.
Customer Service is seriously awesome too, any concern ( I needed to reorder a spice which is a good concern to have ) and they are quick to respond and hook me up.
This is my first month and I love it! The Cajun theme is wonderful! Easy to follow recipe cards! I know that I will love this subscription much better than the other spice sub I had. If you are looking for a fun way around your kitchen, try this subscription! The recipes are all delicious and the spice envelopes have A LOT in them so you can make the recipes more than once!
We have made 2 of the 4 recipes in past week. Have really enjoyed them and look forward to more international cuisine recipes! So fun!
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.
I gave this as a gift and the recipient is enjoying the 2 she's received so far.
We are only one month it but it’s a huge success!! The spices are high quality and a nice small quantity with a delicious creative recipe. No need to buy a whole jar of some obscure spice you might never use again, ALSO, great to know you can order extras (very affordable) of most products on the Piquant Post website.
Perfect for the chef in your life (especially if you get to eat what they make)
So excited to try the recipes. Very nicely packaged
I got this box as a present for my parents. They absolutely love it. The recipes are interesting and require a moderate level of cooking skill.
