  5. I have MANY favorite herbs and spices and I love GARLIC! However, for the sake of this WONDERFUL and very generous giveaway – I’m going to say Cinnamon because it is so universal and so comforting and works magic in both sweet and savory dishes (and beverages) I wouldn’t be surprised if Cinnamon is the most beloved spice on the entire planet!

  6. My favorite spice is garlic powder. I use it for just about everything. I make a blend of garlic and onion powder and salt/pepper and I use all the time!

  7. Turmeric. It goes with everything. I put it on tortillas, oatmeal, soup, fruit, and even dye fabrics with it. Gorgeous dark orange color, and so healthy!

  8. favorite spice ???? how can I pick just 1 ???? !!!

    OK – if I have to pick one – it would be black pepper – since I used it on everything – it’s essential and I’d never go without it!

  9. Wow – what a great give-away!
    I don’t suppose they’ll send them out of the US, but just in case I’ll put my 2 cents worth in. 😉
    I can’t live without cumin and buy it in the biggest bags I can find!

  10. There’s not a spice there that I haven’t already used, except smoked paprika. I have Hungarian paprika, both sweet and hot, but I can’t find smoked paprika in any store around me. If I don’t win, I’m gonna buy it online.

  11. I love cooking with spices so it’s hard to choose a favorite but I do love smokey paprika to jazz things up and bit and most desserts benifit from a touch of cinnamon.

  12. My favorite spice these days is smoked paprika…we also like chipotle powder. Anything hot & spicy is tasty!

  13. I love cinnamon, because I like the combination of sweetness with heat (same thing with ginger). I also really like the health benefits of cinnamon.

  14. I love Chai tea and make my own spice mix and store it in an old spice bottle right near the tea leaves. 3 parts Cinnamon to 1 part each cloves, nutmeg, ginger, allspice. All favorites of mine. Then add some powdered milk (skim- keeps the tea hot and lets you add enough to make it creamy without the calories) and sweetener (if you like) and you have a cheap, awesome cup of Chai. Yum!

  15. Oh I could so use this – throwing out lots of old spices and waiting to purchase again until we move! My favorite spice is coriander.

  16. I just love cumin! I use it alot with Indian foods and just for rubs on chicken with a little cinnamon as well!

  17. I always used basic salt, pepper, garlic and onion salt or powder but a couple of years ago went to Spain and Italy and experienced wonderful new flavors and spices that I have never (well been afraid to) try this has opened a new whole world to me and to not be afraid of trying spices which I am doing now!! :0)

  18. How heavenly would this spice extravaganza be?!!!! Currently, I’m fascinated by smoked paprika, but garlic powder is my oldest standby ingredient.

  19. Hmmm….as The Spicy RD, it’s hard to pick just one 🙂 Cinnamon and black pepper are the two I use the most, but love turmeric and so many other too!!! Fun giveaway 🙂

  20. You know each one of those spices is calling me. But then I am also someone who makes her own blends and gets spices shipped in from all places. What is really intriguing to me is the Manzanillo Mexico Seasoning.

    And I hope you guys actually do some packing today .. and not just drink beer, eat pizza and talk :)) I will see you soon.

  21. That’s a tough one – Love spices! I do love cumin, as well as dried Dominican oregano. And for desserts, love ginger and nutmeg! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  22. My favorite new find for using spices is nutmeg add it to greens spinach, kale etc adds wonderful taste also good in carrots…

  23. Oooh more spices! I’ll be picking up my others at mom’s house shortly! And my favorite spice is cinnamon. I use it all the time in both sweet and savory foods.
