The Pantry Club Spices

The Pantry Club just started offering their gourmet spice mixes at Sam’s clubs across the U.S.A.  At the roadshows you can buy a 4 pack or a 6 pack of any combination.  (For the show schedule see the next page.)

The current flavors are -

  • Bacon Cheddar
  • Chipotle Chile
  • Cucumber Dill
  • Onion Chive
  • Sesame Garlic
  • Tomato Pesto

General Directions -

The spice packs are great for dips, dressings, soups, directly sprinkled on veges and stir frys or fajitas type dishes, marinades or meat rubs!  Excellent on chicken, fish, steak or pastas!

Each packet will make 2 cups of dip.  Just use half of a packet if you only want to make 1 cup.

They have a shelf life of 2 years, so when we have a show, feel free to stock up or buy for future gifts.

The Dips at the Roadshow - The one’s you tasted at the road show were made with:
1 1/2 cups Sour Cream
1 heaping T of Mayonnaise.
1 packet of mix

You can mix them with a variety of creamy or oily bases, including:

  • Sour Cream
  • Cream Cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • Yogurt
  • Hummus
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Avocado
  • Buttermilk
  • Tofu
  • Olive Oil
  • Any non-dairy substitute!

Here are some suggestions from our customers and distributors -

Mix  with Olive Oil, some water or vinegar and make fresh salad dressings that are free of additives and cheap oils.

Use as meat rubs or mix in oil or buttermilk to marinate your meats. Buttermilk is especially good as it tenderizes the meat.

Make great tasting sauces for pasta dishes.  Michelle’s recipe:  She pan sautéed garlic in Olive oil and a cup of white wine.  Then she added a packet of Tomato Basil and threw it all on some pasta.  Her family raved about it!

Make spreads for sandwiches, tortilla wraps or hamburgers.  Onion Chive, Sesame Garlic and Cucumber Dill are especially good.  Or Bacon Cheddar if you want to add a bit of a ‘cheesy’ taste.

All are great for veggie dips!

Sprinkle directly on foods such as stir fries, steamed veges to really up the flavor!  Also great on things like baked potatoes and eggs.  One man said he loved to moisten his baked potato with a bit of milk and then sprinkle on a bit of the bacon-cheddar.

Added into foods such as mashed potatoes, eggs, meat patties and meatloaf.

Cucumber Dill is especially great on fish as a dipping sauce.  Also chicken.  And it’s a great one for a salad dressings.

One customer used the Sesame Garlic on chicken and pasta and said, “It was sooo good!”

We had someone say they added the Chipotle Chili to their scrambled eggs and loved it.  Also great for taco meat.  Add a little to your guacamole!

Bacon Cheddar is great on baked potatoes.  A weight watchers tip: add some milk (or milk substitute) to your potatoe to moisten it a bit.  Then sprinkle on some of the Bacon Cheddar.  Yum!  When you moisten with milk, you won’t need a ton of butter.

Tomato Pesto, Onion Garlic are excellent on Italian bread or mixed up on some Olive oil for dipping the bread.

Many of them are also great to add to Hamburger meat for making patties or meatloaf or taco meat.

One of our distributors used to work at Chiles and swears the Chipotle Chili tastes just like theirs.  She suggested it’s great sprinkled on chicken to make spicy chicken wings.

BE CREATIVE!   And, please be sure to share your favorite recipes!

    Where can you buy the spices? We bought some when Sams club had them – and I meant to get some more before they left – but we were too late.
    Do you know where we can order them – or just the number on the package?
    Thanks

      Hi Lori,
      You can call the company number on the package and either buy direct (higher price than at Sam’s), or to get the Sam’s pricing, ask them for information on which clubs in your area might be having a roadshow.

    We’ve been having many people ask us about how The Pantry Club compares to the spices that are currently being sold at the California State Fair. A customer came into today and said that the ones at the fair cost more and that there was less in the packet. Great to know!!

    Some ideas and recipes that I have used myself and given out to customers:

    1. To make a wonderful meal for your family in under 10 mins.: Fry lots of sliced garlic in olive oil until golden. Pour in one cup of white wine (or vegetable, chicken or beef stock). Cook for 3 mins. to allow alcohol to burn off, then add one seasoning packet (tomato pesto, onion chive, chipotle chili, etc.), cooked pasta and lots of cheese. Note:
    If you are using a thicker pasta and find you need more liquid, use some of the pasta water and a tablespoon of butter.
    2. To make a wonderful fish (especially for those that don’t like fish that much), take an 8 oz. packet of cream cheese and add one packet of seasoning (cucumber dill and tomato pesto work wonderfully). Spread the mixture over the fish and wrap the fish in puff pastry (Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry Sheets) with the seam down. Bake according to pastry directions on the box.
    3. This recipe can be used for any meat: chicken, fish, pork, lamb, beef, etc. Especially your cheaper cuts of meat: Marinate your meat overnight in buttermilk (at least 8 hours–the more the better). When you are ready to use the meat, take it out of the buttermilk (throw away the buttermilk) and pat the meat dry with a paper towel (do not rinse it). Add 2 tsps-2 Tbsps of seasoning (depending on how much meat you have–more for larger quantities) to olive oil. Bast your meat as you are BBQing or baking. If you are baking the meat, add sliced potatoes to the pan and all the juices that are running off the meat as you cook it, will season the potatoes.
    4. For salad dressings: use any of the seasonings and add to olive oil and vinegar. Use 1 tsp. of seasoning for 2 people, 2 tsps for 4 or more.
    5. For people watching their weight: sprinkle the seasoning directly on your eggs, rice, fish, tofu, hummus, etc. I made my scrambled eggs this morning with fresh spinach, garlic and a sprinkle of sesame garlic instead of salt. This afternoon, I added the sesame garlic to my diced tomatoes with a little bit of apple cider vinegar–it was delicious!
    6. I add cucumber dill to one and one half cups of yogurt. I crush in 2 cloves of garlic and lots of chopped cucumber–it tastes just like a Greek Tzanziki salad–so refreshing!
    7. Add one packet of onion/chive or sesame garlic to one and one half cups of mayonnaise and 2 crushed cloves of garlic. Use for your meats or with asparagus–tastes just like Aioli.

    I’ve had people ask what the price difference is when buying from the company online or buying at a Sam’s show. At Sam’s the 4 pack is $10.98, online it’s $14.00. At Sam’s the 6 pack is $14.98, online it’s $18.00.

    I work at the police station and I took in the dips for the holidays. They loved them. Especially the Bacon Cheddar. They kept telling others so more and more people kept coming to try them. Then the police chief. I couldn’t believe it. I’ve brought in things many times but never had this kind of response. Everyone wanted to know where I got them and if I could get more.

  7. Michelle says:

    The salad that I have been using as a sample is very simple:

    In a bowl, add olive oil to cover the bottom of the bowl, use half that amount of balsamic vinegar, 1/2 a teaspoon of seasoning (I use the Tomato Pesto), 4 Tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese (I use Tomato Basil Feta) and Organic Baby Spinach. Do not mix dressing with Spinach until ready to serve.

    Great new recipe for the summer barbeque – besides as a meat rub. Take a zip lock bag and add cut up veges, 1 – 2 tsp. of olive oil and shake well. Then add 1 -2 tsps of one of the spice flavors and shake well again. Then grill the veges. The woman who shared this with us, told us her son has always hated veges, but he absolutely loves them cooked this way.

      Hi Sandra,
      You can look at the schedule and see if we will be at a store near you – or you can call me anytime to order – 916-300-5818
      Thanks! Barbara

    A great summer salad is a Greek salad: Dice one cucumber, 1/2 a red onion, a can of black olives (I buy Kalamata olives from Safeway), cherry tomatoes halved, diced feta cheese (I buy the block from Sam’s–it’s cheaper and you get a lot more). For the dressing: 2 tsps of the cucumber dill from Pantry Club, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. You cannot believe how delicious this salad is! Make it an hour before serving it so that it is cold and toss it in the dressing at the table. Enjoy!
