Pleased to meet you. Won’t you guess my name?

name-that-dip-box
Look carefully at the picture, above. If you were going to christen this gift box, what would its name be?

We are releasing a new boxed set in a few weeks, and to make it more fun (and because you folks always have clever ideas), we are going to have a “name that box” contest.

The box has a range of favorite ingredients that are great for bread-dipping, dressing-mixing, salad-tossing and all-around good eating.

It includes: 1/4 Cup jars of the Ammazza Suocera, California Salad Blend, and Gusto Pizza Blend; with 2.5 oz bottles of Tuscan Herb Infused Olive Oil and Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, and a nice olive leaf dipping plate. The set is priced at $30.

Pleased to meet you. Won’t you guess my name?

What’s your best suggestion for this new boxed set’s name? Submit your idea via email (anna at allspiceonline dot com ) or comment on the Facebook post before Midnight (US Central Time) on August 31, 2017.

The winner will receive one of the yet-to-be-named boxed sets, along with valuable bragging rights. One entry per person.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas – For the Modern Dad

Father’s Day is coming up next weekend, June 18.

Father’s Day is one of our favorite gift-giving holidays. We get a kick out of helping our customers find just the right present for the fathers (and father-figures) in their lives.

The popular idea of an old-fashioned dad was one of a great guy who probably knew his way around a BBQ grill, but who also got hopelessly lost trying to navigate around the kitchen.

Thankfully, many of us grew up with old-fashioned dads who were as comfortable following a cookie recipe as they were with a cookout. And now, a generation or two later, a majority of modern dads are handy in the kitchen and hands-on with the kids.  It’s definitely a change for the better.

Best of all, the modern dads we know all like to cook, and they all enjoy sharing and eating really good food.

And that makes Father’s Day shopping for them a lot of fun.

AllSpice owner Rory Brown has some suggestions for Father’s Day gifts that are popular this year:

Next, every AllSpice staffer pitched in and helped bake dozens (and dozens!) of our signature Triple Ginger Cookies to serve Friday evening. AllSpicer Eva, who is also a fine photographer, documented her cookie-baking Wednesday night:
