"My spice shipment just arrived. Oh my gosh! Your spice blends are nuts! I could sit and eat them out of the jar with a spoon! I have been put on a extremely low sodium diet and am allergic to garlic, so my past enjoyment of cooking had disappeared into bland, boring, plain dishes. I had begun to dread mealtime. There just isn't much out there in the non-salt spice blend category to inspire me. Not anymore! Just WOW!"
