I am all about saving time when it comes to preparing a meal at the end of the day, so many of us work hard, come home, and simply want to prepare a good tasting meal for ourselves an our family. I hate products that take advantage of our hard work, and our hard earned money.
Products that frustrate
I have seen these spice packs sitting in the grocery stores that I go to for a couple of months now. The first time I saw this product, I shook my head. The advantage of buying this particular spice kit is it has a recipe on the package, and about 2 teaspoons of spices, it costs under three dollars. So I thought to myself, how much do the spices really cost in here, and what if I wanted to season something differently? Does this company think that I can't put together a simple recipe, and I need to purchase their overpriced product to help me make dinner.
I know that spice companies are out there to make a profit, I fully understand that, I have a couple of spice merchants that I really like to shop at, but I am offended if you want to charge me 3 dollars for barely any spices, and then give me your recipe, and I have no other options. I work very hard for the money that I earn. It is important to me to get the best value for my dollar when I shop. Sure, I buy a few convience products, I try to stay away from these products as much as possible because I want to stretch my food dollars as much as I can.
What I found most offensive about this particular product it that it assumes that we can't cook. I personally believe if you eat, you should learn some cooking skills, we aren't all going to be five star chefs, but you know what, we all can put together a simple meal and stay away from products that take advantage of us. Now, I know that this company most likely feels this product will aide you in making dinner, but I bet that most of us have many of these spices in our cabinet only, and with a quick search on the internet, we can find all sorts of recipes that we would like to try. If I can urge you to do one thing, don't buy products like these, you can cook delicious meals in your own kitchen, with items you already have in your cabinet.
