Price: $6 is a great low price.
Reduce waste: It's such a terrible thing to buy a jar of spice and have it go to waste. This allows you to try the spice without buying a whole jar.
The not so good:
Skip: I don't see an option to skip or pause your subscription.
I received this envelope in the mail but it didn't say who it was from. I thought that was odd. The envelope size is about 6x9.
Inside the envelope was a note about this months spices.
This was another paper envelope that was inside the first envelope.
Inside the second envelope were the spices and recipes.
Contents of the RawSpiceBar envelope:
.5 oz. packet Rose & Chai Spices. Value = $1.00
.5 oz. packet Punjabi Garam Masala. Value = $1.00
.5 oz. packet Tandoori Spices. Value = $1.00
I put a value on here but it's not entirely accurate. I looked up the spices from a company I buy spices from. I would say they are equivalent in quality to this company. The reason I say the value isn't entirely accurate is because the spices from the company I buy from come in 8 oz. packets. So based on that I valued these at $1.00 each BUT just like with the food delivery companies if I bought these spices in the store I would have to buy the whole packet or jar. In the case of the spice company I use I would need to spend $24.00. Other places had smaller jars (about 3.5oz.) for about $4 a jar which would still be $12. The good part about buying the whole jar is if you like the spice you have more. The bad part is if you don't like it then you now have a whole jar of spice that you paid $4-$8 for and won't use. Bottom line is I think trying spices in this fashion is an excellent idea.
Verdict: I think this is a great subscription and I've already signed up.
