Grenada Spices… The Isle of Spice Where Everything is Nice
The best way to take a piece of Grenada back home with you is to get you hands on some Grenada Spices. Grenada is a treasure chest of spices

The spices of Grenada are fresh and authentic. You begin to smell their aroma long before you even see them, now that’s authentic stuff.And I’ll bet you won’t find that kind of quality in the corner grocery in your home town.
Use these spices in your favorite recipes, and they will push your culinary skills to another level. The bland, and the ordinary now become flavorful and mouth watering. The compliments just keep rolling in. That’s just what happened to me…
King of the Chili …
Every year my company just outside of Washington DC in Virginia holds a chili cook off. I had never made chili before but I figured that with my Grenada Spices and a little help from a coworker I can make a decent showing.
Well to my surprise, we won! By the end of the event my pot was empty. Some folks even took my spicy chili home to their spouse. And everybody wanted to know what were the spices I used …
That was 5 years ago, since then I have come in second twice and won another first place award. I now hold the record for the most consecutive top finishes. Who would have guessed it! And it’s all because of my secret weapon … my Grenada Spices
Where to get your Spices…
You won’t have to go out of your way to purchase Grenada spices. Just follow your nose, to any of the vendor markets or booths. There is one on Grand Anse beach, and another close to the port where the cruise ships docks. Also any souvenir shop or duty free area are sure to have nicely package spice baskets that will make an excellent and useful gift for your friends back home. So pick up a couple.
