As I sit here writing this in the glow of my Christmas tree, presents wrapped, cookies baked, I’m filled with gratitude. I’m grateful for a holiday season where our biggest worry is how not to over do it with all the presents and food instead of one spent worrying about having any gifts at all or a home to gather in come Christmas morning. It’s easy to get swept up in the commercialism of the season and lose sight of what’s really important.

If you’re looking for a way to give back this Christmas and add a little spice to your meals there’s a great product that you’ll want to try. It’s called the Best Spice Mix Evah! and it’s now available to ship across the country. It’s a delicious blend of spices that will add a little zip to your dips, dressings, meat or snacks. Not only will this spice mix be your new favorite pantry staple, it’s a product with a purpose.

The spice mix is handmade in the commercial kitchen of the Isaiah House in East Orange, NJ, a shelter and food pantry that provides meals, groceries, housing and support programs to thousands of the area’s most fragile residents. Government funds for shelters like the Isaiah House have been cut in recent years and the staff has had to find innovative ways to raise funds for people in need. The Best Spice Mix Evah! was created by food and marketing professionals and is blended by the Isaiah House kitchen staff and residents with 100% of the profits going directly back to fund the shelter’s programs and food pantry.

I had the opportunity to visit the shelter and sample the spice mix on everything from popcorn to shrimp to roasted vegetables when the product launched. I snagged a couple bags to take home and have been using it on everything! I’ve been making a ton of candied nuts for gifts over the holidays and I knew that this spice mix would give them a great savory kick. The mix of savory and sweet makes these walnuts beyond addictive. You may want to double this recipe because these won’t last long.

So if you need a last minute stocking stuffer or just want a couple bags for your own pantry, be sure to place your order today. It’s a tasty way to give back and support an organization that is doing important work for families and individuals in need. You’ll help make someone’s Christmas a little merrier and it’s a great reminder about what’s really important this season. Merry Christmas!
