Trying to finish a plate of poorly seasoned food is kind of the worst. You can add as much salt as you want, but real flavor comes from spices. But while there are plenty of spice brands out there, none compare to Spiceology. The brand’s famous rubs and blends combine all the right flavor combinations for you, so your seasoning tastes perfect every single time.
Award-winning chef Pete Taylor and food blogger Heather Scholten of Farmgirl Gourmet founded Spiceology together. Although they started selling it at Farmer’s Markets, today it’s one of the fastest-growing spice companies in the U.S. Now you can find it at stores like Amazon, Williams Sonoma, Nordstrom and more. It’s even in restaurant kitchens.
It kicked off its operations in 2013 with its first seasoning blend, and today its No. 1 best seller, Smoky Honey Habanero. It’s a combination of honey granules, brown sugar, paprika, salt and habanero powder. You get a smoky flavor from the paprika, a sweetness from the honey and brown sugar and some real heat from the habanero. You can use it on burgers, chicken, pork or even on bacon. (If you’re not seasoning your bacon, you should try it ASAP.)
Other favorites include Greek Freak, a mix of herbs, dried onion, sun-dried tomato, chili pepper and orange peel powder, as well as the Black & Bleu Rub, a combo of bleu cheese powder, paprika, garlic, onion and salt.
You can probably tell from just a few of its top sellers, but Spiceology makes some pretty innovative flavors. It works with chefs to develop its blends and recipes and handpick its raw ingredients. Spices are ground in small batches and shipped to you fast for the freshest flavor.
In addition to its seasoning blends and rubs, the brand makes brines and curing blends, popcorn seasonings, baking kits, sugar-free seasonings, salt-free seasonings and your standard single at-home spices.
Another plus to its incredible flavor combinations, however, is that instead of crowding your cabinet with several small spice jars, you can have just a few jars already blended to perfection. It takes up less space in your cabinet, and it takes the guesswork out of blending. Just sprinkle and cook.
Think of Spiceology as your fun, rich aunt who loves to cook. It will always keep you on your toes, it’s not afraid to experiment and you can’t help but be in awe of just how cool it is.
