Food News: RawSpiceBar Subscription Box Launch and Giveaway!

Brandy has been intrigued by all these new fangled subscription boxes for quite some time now, from the cook it yourself meal prep boxes to the kitchen gadget boxes to the snack boxes and everything in between.  "I like the idea of curated boxes like these that help people to broaden their horizons with food," Brandy has said, "But some of these menu type thingies are so inflexible.  Sure, it's great for those looking to learn to cook or don't have a lot of time to make fresh meals, but what about those of us who like to experiment in the kitchen?"

The possibility for creativity is what caught Brandy's attention when she first heard about the just launched RawSpiceBar.  RawSpiceBar delivers 3 premium spice blends from around the world direct to the consumer's door. They work with top chefs to create a unique and interesting spice blend for customers to try out. Each spice box averages 2 ounces of spice blends and yields a complete 3 dish meal for 8-12 people. All the spices use ingredients of the highest quality (and they opt for fair trade and organic spices where possible), sourced from global spice producers. Each box costs $6, RawSpiceBar covers the shipping costs (in US), and one can purchase a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription period (gift subscriptions are also available) with the ability to cancel or pause at any time.

Each RawSpiceBar box includes an "origins, instructions and recipes" card for each spice blend that includes the blend's history, as well as suggested recipes. RawSpiceBar also includes another 5-10 recipe ideas on their site, and they provide a great variety of options for vegans, vegetarians, carnivores, gluten free and healthy eaters alike.

Luckily, RawSpiceBar offered Brandy the chance to give away one of their first boxes (shipping in January) to one lucky reader!  To enter to win the box, just comment your favorite spice here in the comments below this post, or comment on the relevant post to our Facebook page, our Twitter page, or our Instagram page and make sure to include your email address so we can contact you if you win!  The contest will close one week from today (Wednesday December 17th).  If you're interested in trying out RawSpiceBar for yourself, make sure to use the coupon code "ilovespices" and you will receive 1 free extra spice monthly spice box with any subscription of 6 months or more.
