The Spice House Launches Exact Packs: Gourmet Meals Guaranteed In Under One Hour

by Chloe Gordon on 01/25/2022 | 3 Minute Read

While utterly crucial to cooking, spices can cause kitchen clutter. However, the Spice House packets help cut the clutter by creating spice packs that resemble seed packets. The brand's new soup packs are currently available in four flavors, each showcasing intricate illustrations on the front that feature the flavors within. These packets create an approachable and warm cooking atmosphere that Julia Childs herself might even be fond of.

The Spice House, trusted purveyor of the finest spices, herbs, blends, and extracts is pleased to announce the launch of their brand new product offering, Exact Packs. While the Spice House caters to customers ranging from renowned Michelin-star chefs to home cooks everywhere, these new additions were built with the over-scheduled or novice cook in mind. Cooking doesn’t need to be intimidating, and at home soups made throughout the cozy season can be an easy and enjoyable experience for all.

“We wanted an opportunity to showcase some of our favorite signature blends in a whole new way, combining ease and low commitment with the perfect pinch of inspiration. The flavors found in this batch are all pre-measured, travel well, and guarantee a gourmet dinner in under an hour. Whether needing a quick but delicious meal after a day on the go or cooking for the very first time, our Exact Packs are here to ensure that you can’t go wrong. - Alex Wilkens, Spice House Director of  Product and Sourcing

For the illustration portion of the packaging, we had considered using photography or multi-color illustration but ultimately decided on the more classic "etching" style to align with the artwork found on our jars and flatpacks. This approach gives the customer a general sense of the dominant flavors included in each packet while leaving them somewhat free to imagine what their own finished dish will look like on the table. Instructions are pared down to include only the essential steps, making the recipes especially accessible to novice cooks and busy weeknight chefs
