It’s time for us to give away free stuff again!
AcroAma Blends will be giving away one of each of their six gourmet organic seasoning blends to a lucky DIY Natural community member.

This seasoning collection has a retail value of $50 (including free shipping). The giveaway will run through March 31, 2013 at midnight EST.
Why we love this giveaway
We had the opportunity to sit in on a call with Justin Penoyer of AcroAma Blends the other day and learn some really cool tid-bits about this artisan herb and spice company. I started to get really excited while we listened to Justin talk because I know there must be others out there just like me – I love food, but I have no idea what spices to add to make the perfect, savory, well-balanced dish! (Matt is the culinary hero in our house.)
Because flavoring dishes doesn’t come naturally, I like to reach for a seasoning blend. The problem with most commercial seasoning blends? They’re FULL of MSGs, old herbs that have lost their flavor and aroma, and tons of refined table salt. Ick! You’d be better off skipping the seasonings if that’s what you’re putting on your food.
The organic spice blends from AcroAma are formulated for different cuisines – one that will give a Caribbean flare to a meal, one that will impart the flavors of the Middle East, another that will turn a meal into a Tex-Mex favorite, and many more. All their blends already contain salt – but not just regular table salt – French grey sea salt, which was chosen for its superior mineral content and lowest sodium content over all other sea salts.
So with the 6 different spice blends they offer, you could cook a dish that would transport your family to another corner of the world, almost every night of the week. Convenience is top on my list during dinner time, and AcroAma Blends simplifies the cooking experience and makes any amateur cook look really good.
What makes AcroAma Blends unique
AcroAma Blends is unlike any other spice company out there. Just about everything they do, from production to packaging, makes this spice company unique. They are concerned with sustainable production, transparency in labeling, and using the highest quality ingredients.
AcroAma Blends are 100% certified organic, grown on land that has not been stripped of its minerals and enzymes. You’ll never find anything questionable in this product, and everything that goes into these blends is listed on the label.
Did you know most spice blends on store shelves are irradiated? This means low doses of radiation are applied to the product. Irradiation damages the oils in the plants, making the fragile oils evaporate more quickly. You’ll be able to smell the difference with AcroAma blends – which are NEVER irradiated – so those oils are intact and wonderfully fragrant.
AcroAma Blends are never produced in a factory on a production line. Mechanical production of seasonings is hard on delicate herbs. So instead, all the AcroAma seasonings are carefully handcrafted in small batches, preserving the volatile oils, and ensuring that you get the freshest product. In fact, Justin said the herbs used are “about as fresh as you can get unless you’re growing them in your own garden and drying them yourself.”
Striving to have the lowest environmental footprint possible, AcroAma uses only glass bottles and recycled packaging.
Possibly one of the coolest things about this company – their gourmet seasonings are designed and handcrafted by gold-medal winning Chef Stephen Dowe, of the Perry Street Brasserie, an acclaimed top restaurant in the U.S. (So you know the blend of flavors is exquisite!)
If you’re the lucky winner of this giveaway, you’ll get to try every hand made spice blend this company offers. You will have a whole collection of gourmet organic seasonings for almost every type of dish you want to cook!
