May RawSpiceBar - The Andes, Peru

Do you love cooking with new foods and spices? Then you have to check out RawSpiceBar. Each month you will receive 3-4 whole spices or spice blends along with a recipe to use them. Each recipe will use the include spice and will make 8-10 servings. The price of this subscription is just $6.00 a month with shipping included. You have to sign up for a minimum 3 month subscription.  

Price: $6.00 a month (minimum 3 month subscription) w/ shipping included. Discounts for 6 and 12 month subscriptions. Ships to US and Canada.

The good:

Love to cook: If you love cooking with new foods and spices this a fun way to do it. 

Know someone who loves to cook: This makes a great gift!

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. 

Buy: I really want them to have a shop on their website where you can purchase more spices you like. 


Inside the shipping envelope is another envelope with the spices.

April RawSpiceBar - The Andes, Peru


Contents of the RawSpiceBar envelope:

.4 oz. packet Peruvian Spice Rub.

.4 oz. packet Aji Amarillo Spices.

.3 oz. packet Pink Peppercorn Blend.

One of the best parts of this subscription is the included recipes. They include ingredients that are easily found at the grocery store. Although I will say one of the recipes calls for a 6 lb. chicken and I don't think I've ever seen a 6 lb. chicken. That's a BIG chicken. 

The recipes are:

Roasted Aji Amarillo Sweet Potato Wedges.
Pink Peppercorn & Sea Salt Voladores.
Peruvian Spiced Roasted Chicken.


Verdict: I think this is a great subscription and I'm really enjoying the new spices.

Everyone Loves A Treasure
