Teeny Tiny Spice Co. Review and Giveaway

I LOVE cooking. If you have been on my Pinterest page, you know by now that I love food. Since more than half of my pins revolve around cooking or baking, I always seem to be in the kitchen! Needless to say, I was super stoked when the Teeny Tiny Spice Company of Vermont offered up some of their incredible spices for my family and me to review. I got to try out the Organic Chocolate Chili, Organic Shepherd Herb Mix, and the OrganicWhoopass seasonings. The cooler weather had me in the mood for baking, so I decided to bake with the Chocolate Chili. Teeny Tiny sent along some yummy recipes with the spices, and I chose to bake the Spicy Chocolate Brownies.

They were so good! I admit, the first couple bites caught me off guard. I wasn't expecting so much of a spicy kick, but I am glad it was there. I have never had anything like this other than spicy chocolate bars. This recipe definitely isn't for everyone, but I think you should give it a try!

This seasoning also makes a great rib rub and addition to any chili! I personally can't wait o try it in hot cocoa!

 *Recipe will be posted separately.*


Despite detesting fennel, I still really enjoyed the Shepherd Herb Mix. I used it on a roast chicken that I made in the Crockpot. I put the herbs under the skin and inside the bird along with carrots and celery. The aromatics this herb mix created was to die for. My mouth was watering all day. We don't eat meat very often in my family, and when we do, it is either seafood or poultry.

Now this seasoning is AMAZING!
My family loves to kick up the heat on almost everything we eat. This little tin of seasoning perfection is just what I need when cooking anything. I like adding a smidge to ketchup to make it spicy, sprinkling it on sweet potato fries, adding it to meatloaf, etc. I have so many ways to use this spice I don't think we will ever get tired of it.

The Teeny Tiny Spice co offers several varieties of premixed seasoning as well as having multiple seasonings for bulk purchase.
 Be sure to check them out!

  1. Garam Masala is something I would like to try, because I am trying to branch out and learn some Indian recipes. I'm not brave enough to mix my own Garam Masala, but would love to try this organic version.

  31. There are so many to choose from and so many I would love to try! I would first like to try out the Organic WhoopAss because believe it or not, my 10 year old son loves everything spicy! I think it would be great to add a pinch of it to his grilled cheese, chili, and even popcorn! I also would love to try ORGANIC Shepherd Herb Mix because I would like to add a little something different too spice up our homemade salad dressings. After reading the description it seems like it could be added to any meal for a little new flavor.. maybe Chinamans Pie or Tater Tot Casserole to spice things up :)

  33. The whoop ass sounds amazing, and I'd love to try that to add a little spice to my chilli and other dishes as my hubby especially loves a little kick in his foods. Another that I'd love to try is Pink salt as I'm curious to see if it's any different than the regular sea salt I use and love....and just love that it's pink. There are a bunch of others that I'd love to try but these would be my top two picks.....I think. Lol. Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. I'm very interested in trying the whoop ass that you received as I like to add a little kick to dishes like chilli that I make and my hubby loves a little heat. I'd also be very interested in checking out pink salt as I'm curious about it and if it's any different than my normal sea salt that I use and love..... There are quite a few others that I'd love to try but if I win, I'd likely choose one of these. Thanks for the chance to win. I love trying new spices!
