The Spice Lab Gourmet Salt Review and Giveaway - US Only - Ends 6/12


Thanks to The Spice Lab for providing me with a free Gourmet Collection for this review! 

 
As I'm sure a lot of you know, I have been dieting for several months now - While I love the food I am eating, sometimes I just like to spice it up a little to get some different flavors, so I was extremely excited to try these amazing, rare salts, which come from all over the world.

For my review I received Gourmet Collection Number 1:
  This great collection features 5 salts from various places in the world, which include:
  • Apple Wood Cold Smoked Sea Salt from Washington State.
  • Pink Sea Salt from the Murray River.
  • First Harvest Sea Salt from Fleur De Sel France.
  • White Flake Sea Salt from the Island of Cyprus.
  • Hawaiian Red Clay Alaea Sea Salt.
To be honest, before I actually tried the salts, I was pretty skeptical. My first thoughts were "It's salt, how different could it taste from regular salt?"
Well to my surprise, each had a very unique and distinct taste.
I don't think I could pick a favorite, but I tried each salt with different steamed veggies, and it really brought out some amazing flavors in them. I tried a little Cyprus Flake in some broccoli, and it was amazing - Same with the Hawaiian Red Clay Alea Salt on my carrots.

One of my favorite things though was the display the salt comes in. Each of the salts are in glass vials (which stand in a block)- So when I was adding salt to my dishes, I felt like a mad scientist - "A dash of this, and a dash of that!" So it was pretty fun actually too - And I have to admit, the salts look really great up on the counter.

Overall, I absolutely loved my gourmet salt collection from The Spice Lab - It adds new flavors to old dishes, and is truly a treasure to have in your kitchen!
