The Zanzibar spice is really nice and different. Unfortunately my last reorder was a different spice so I am trying it.
Owner Response: Our apologies! Hope you liked the new one and we'll reach out directly to resolve this.

Best Spice in the World!

I tried the Zanzibar Island Spice last year. It is amazing! I use it on egg dishes and meat. The flavor is enhanced by this spice. Now, I'm hooked and order three containers at a time. I highly recommend this wonderful creation. Susan Champion

I make a rice and lentil dish with this and man it is so simple and good. So filling. Cheap and delicious and the spice makes it so next level tasty. I should really buy two since I love it so much. Ok, just talked myself into buying two.

A wonderful spice to change up the taste of eggs, or add a bit of zingy to a salad - or a burger!

Spice review - Zanzibar
Jul 3, 2020  |  By Renee Alexander
Good morning,
I purchased my first bottle of Moroccan Harissa at the Smithsonian Museum of African Art in D.C and absolutely loved this spice. We have been under quarantine for several months and managed to use the entire bottle of the Harissa, it has become the spice of choice for many of our dishes. We have sampled all of the new spices on fresh tomatoes from the Farmers Market, fresh mozzarella, rice, pasta, vegetables and salads, and they have become our way of escaping the confines of our DC kitchen to travel to a new destination, even though it is only through food, it has brought my family to the table and we have enjoyed the culinary journey. I am particularly fond of the Khoisan Seaweed Salt Blend and the Zanzibar Island Spice.

I also purchased a couple of bottles to give as gifts to my friends who are starving for new culinary delights.

All the best,

We tried this spice mixture at a friend's house, and had to get some. It's a unique flavor that we use on pizza, eggs, and lots of other things that can use a little zip.

This spice is a wonderful and unique blend! People will think you did an awesome recipe, when really you only used this spice. Great on chicken, in eggs, in stews, make anything special.

Great Flavor

Have purchased several of the spices and enjoy the different flavors they add to a wide variety of foods. Used one today (Christmas) at table. Had previously gifted one of the spices to one of the guests at table, and when she saw me bring one of the spices to the table, she said she loved the one I had given her and uses it all the time...good reason to get her another! :)

I really like using the Zanzibar mix - it's easy to grind and it livens up veggies dishes and those w/ protein, too. It's an attractive dispenser and it's fun to say!
