New Spices for the Budget Chef

The five dinners the average American family now consumes at home in an effort to compensate for economic difficulties are about to taste more like they were prepared by a gourmet chef. Aromatica Organics, America’s first organic spice company, has just launched a new line of spices that are enabling home diners to enjoy delicious restaurant-quality meals at stay-at-home prices. Conveniently packaged in single portion packs, the new Spice It Now! herb and spice blends retail at Aromatica Organics’ new Web site, http://www.buyaromatica.com, for a budget-conscious $0.99.

Last week, The Associated Press reported that “first-quarter profit [at the nation’s largest traditional grocer, Kroger,] shot up 12.7 percent as more recession-hit households [are] eating at home instead of restaurants and [are] buying low-priced store brands.” This staying-at-home trend, however, is not any easy feat given Americans’ zesty food preferences.

Now faced with tightened wallets, gourmet food lovers are having to either forgo their cravings altogether or come up with creative ways to afford them. Aromatica Organics’ new line of Spice It Now! packets provide them with a cost-effective way to add flavor and spice one meal at a time. Infused with a shot of the finest herb and spice blend flavors, the portion packs perfect for one pound of meat or fish retail for under $1 apiece. At prices like that, frugal Americans no longer must resort to buying in bulk only to have to throw away half of a spice bottle when the expiration date passes.

This new line of budget-friendly spices is available in a variety of taste-tempting flavors to suit a wide range of palates. Meat eaters can kick up their main course with Nebraska Prime Steak, Cajun Spice, Prime Rib and Beef, Mesquite BBQ or Caribbean Jerk. Seafood lovers will enjoy the Great King Salmon and Mediterranean Seafood options. For vegetable lovers, the Spice It Now! lineup includes Ultimate Guacamole, Potato Topper, Green Bean, All-Purpose Vegetable and Mushroom seasonings. Budget conscious-home cooks will also want to have plenty of the multi-purpose Salt-Free, Garlic Pepper and Sweet Lemon Pepper varieties on hand.

At-home diners who don’t want to compromise flavor for the sake of saving money can now find affordable Spice It Now! herb and spice blends at local Fred Meyer and Quality Food Centers (QFC), or buy online at http://www.buyaromatica.com. Interested media may arrange a meeting with company management by calling (512) 514-6045.
