I wonder how long these will last once opened. I don't red meat as much as I used to. I love the Fruit and Dessert Rub, that's darling.

Any clue as to potential allergens in these products?

We don't eat meat often here either, but many meat spices go fantastic with grilled & sauteed veges.

Found these on ebay for $44.95! That includes shipping and a free gift, but this price is much better by far.

I asked both questions earlier in the day just in case (I know you guys).

The Gourmet Nuts rep says that the spices are mixed and packed in a nut-free facility.

Spices don't really expired.


I agree with the expire part. I've had spices around forever. As long as you keep them closed and dry, they stay good.

Edit: Ok, "forever" was an exaggeration. A while. How about that?

I,too, wonder exactly what's IN these. I realize they're probably some kind of secret recipe but even patented food items have to list their ingredients. Are there really nuts in there?

I have to differ on that part. If you've ever had parsley or chives around for a year or more then bought fresh, the difference is shocking. Fresh ginger is much stronger than old ginger as with most other spices - they loose their potency... but these jars are pretty small so I'm not worried! I'm buying three - one for me and two to spread around... I mean gift...

I don't think I can say that my nuts are truly "gourmet", can I still use these?

I got these last time around and I like them. Props to the company - one bottle arrived broken so I emailed them and they replaced it and threw in an additional bottle (different flavor).

I went to their website to see which organization gave them their kosher certification, but no luck. I did find their descriptions of these mixes though, here.

They may not "expire" but they will lose much of their flavor over a 2 or 3 year period. After a while it will taste like you are eating dust....

I need to know the ingredients too . . . we have some unusual food allergies in my family. If these are free of ingredients we're sensitive to, I'd definitely buy them. But I won't ever buy any food product without a complete ingredient list . . . too risky for us.

Parsley and chives are herbs, actually, not spices.

I also want an ingredient list. I'm looking for sugar (real or artificial), HFCS, or preservatives and chemicals.

I tend to go through a lot of rubs so this could be very good for me; however, I'm with the others in needing to see a list of ingredients due to some allergies that friends of mine have.

Really good question especially with a name like "Gourmet Nut".

I remember before Christmas, woot was selling blackberry pie filling that had pecans in it and there wasn't an allergen warning so if you have allergy issues I would wait for them to double check.

When I got married, my mother (who, rest her soul, was the world's most boring cook) re-gifted me her wedding spice & herb set. I was broke enough to use them until I could replace them one at a time ... of course you had to use A LOT to get the intended flavor. The herbs had faded the most.

I do have a small gripe, however. AHEM -- it's compl*E*ment. As in, compl*ETE*ment. Otherwise, one is anthropomorphizing those little bottles. ("Hey, Beefy, lookin' good there!")

I tried to find contact information for this MFG. but their website has a 404 error under contact info. Do you happen to know if these are gluten free? I will buy them if they are!

I would like to make a suggestion to Woot. Many of our questions would be answered if there was an image of the back of the product, or the sides, so we can see the ingredients and the other "fine print". Especially for allergies info.

I do not like purchasing spice blends with MSG. There is no way of telling here.

Should I order and then return if I am not happy?

Okie, we've compiled the questions you've asked above and sent them along.

Hopefully we can get some, if not all of these cleared up and you all can buy three!

From their website:

Gourmet Nut Zesty Lemon Spice Rub
Ingredients: Italian sea salt, garlic, rosemary, black pepper, coriander, lemon oil.

Gourmet Nut Spice & Herb Spice Rub
Ingredients: celery seed, rosemary, Alaea Hawaiian sea salt, Italian sea salt, black pepper, sage, marjoram.

Hm, I'm allergic to dust... but if it's only "like dust" I guess I'll be ok. Then again, I don't want imitation dust, only the real stuff

So here's the scoop from people who know:
They are not certified Gluten free but there are no wheat products in them, so they are (just not certified)

Also feel free to look in the specs tabs for ingredient lists.

I'm a big fan of waffles, and I was wondering if any of these will taste good on waffles?

Wow, those are some good ingredients! Except for the smoke flavor. I really can't abide that stuff. Something about it...
Still debating with myself...

I could absolutely see a schmeer of whipped cream and a sprinkling of the dessert rub.

Not from woot! There are no returns if you're not happy; only if it was damaged in shipping, the wrong item, etc. woot says "If you buy something you don't end up liking or you have what marketing people call 'buyer's remorse,' sell it on Craigslist or at a garage sale. It's likely you'll make money doing this and save everyone a hassle." But that helps to keep the price down.

Actually,

Spices age in a month or so and loose much of their essential oils. There is a reason good chefs use freshly ground pepper and spices. No real Indian chef would use anything but freshly roasted and ground spices in a curry.
