Our Top Five Videos

Hello, hello!

Welcome to our blog. We’re excited to share something special with you today; our top five favorite Seasonest videos of all time. Sit back with some perfectly seasoned popcorn (We recommend our Original Blend!) and enjoy the show!

  1. Our Business Story

We’ve come a long way and we love looking back at our milestones. This video is the introduction to what we do and why we do it and we love being able to share our personal story with you!

2. Bringing It Home

We think Chipotle’s barbacoa is delicious and were inspired to make our own! We had a lot of fun making this video, but the best part was definitely making this delicious barbacoa and being able to eat it. It is absolutely amazing in tacos and we love that it is homemade and prepared with our healthy seasonings. Something about making it homemade just feels right.

3. Kid Friendly Mild Blend

This blend has garnered quite a bit of attention with moms and dads. It’s given them power over picky eaters! We’ve had children stop by during in-store demos, try one of our samples with the Mild Blend and ask mom and dad if they can have it for dinner. This video is a cute way to remind us of how big an impact seasonings can have in your every day life.

4) Our 2015 Recap

2015 was a really great year for us. We met so many people, participated in all sorts of events and definitely got to travel. We also had some really fun posts to share and enjoyed engaging with our fans. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

5) Delicious Adobo Grilled Shrimp

Our latest video shows us putting together something really delicious; Adobo cilantro lime grilled shrimp. If you can’t say that five times fast, we don’t blame you… but, we can say that it is a mouthful of flavor that you’ve got to try!


We hope you enjoyed your popcorn and got to take a walk down memory lane with us. If you’ve got any memories with us, meeting us, or trying our seasonings for the first time, let us know! We’d love to hear your story.

Happy Wednesday,

The Seasonest Family

Matters of the Heart

We’re so glad to have the honor of being in your spice cabinet, filling shelves at your local grocery stores and making your food so flavorful. Our seasonings are dear to our heart and we love being a close-knit, family-owned business that brings you such healthy ingredients!

Speaking of love and these healthy ingredients, we wanted to focus on heart health and which seasonings contain the best ingredients for everything related to the heart (Aside from falling in love with the flavor, of course!).


Here are a few of our favorite ingredients we use!

  • Basil: If you’re into maintaining your blood pressure, this is one tasty way to treat it!  (Italian Blend)
  • Cayenne: Cayenne assists with blood flow and helps your body avoid blood clots. (Original Blend)
  • Garlic: This special ingredient can lower your risk of heart disease and is found in many of our blends! (Soul Food, Lemon Pepper, Original, Adobo, Italian and Mild Blends)
  • Lemon Peel: High blood pressure? Try some of this! (Lemon Pepper Blend)
  • Onion Powder: Onion powder can assist in maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol and help prevent heart disease. (Adobo Blend)

The Top Five Reasons to Use Our Seasonings

Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!

You’ve made it. It’s one of the first weeks back since the holidays and you’re doing a great job. Keep up the good work!

We love having the opportunity to encourage and inspire those who read our blogs and postings. It’s really important to live a healthy lifestyle mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally, and we believe that incorporating our seasonings is a great way to start. We’ve put together a helpful list of reasons why you should be using our seasonings and how it can benefit you.

1) The Health Benefits

Each of our all-natural blends offers a variety of herbs and spices that have amazing health benefits. Whether it’s heart health, liver function, acne, etc… there’s something beneficial in our seasonings for everyone. Check out our health benefits blog that goes into detail about the many great uses of our ingredients: Health Benefits Blog

2) The Flavor

Mmm, mmm, mmmm… what’s cooking? From the moment you open up one of our flavorful seasonings, you can tell it’s all fresh, all-natural and all completely delicious. A lot of branded seasonings have a good taste, but they don’t offer the freshness or that great quality flavor that Seasonest seasonings provide each and every time. Once you’ve experienced the richness and variety of flavors that our seasonings offer, it’s hard to ever to back to anything else. Taste our very first flavor, the Original Blend, and see what your taste buds have been missing.

3) To Travel

Very few of us have the luxury of just hopping on a plane on a whim and flying to our dreamland destination. It may be that you can’t whisk yourself away right now, but you can certainly take yourself to far off destinations with your food choices! If you’re looking for a Caribbean escape with cool waters, warm sand and a spicy twist, take some time away from everything with our delicious Jerk Blend. Or, perhaps you’re looking for something romantic that reminds you of rolling, green hills, cobblestone streets and the most appetizing smells you’ve ever known. This type of fantasy needs our Italian Blend!

4) To Encourage

If you feed picky eaters, welcome to the club. Sometimes, it’s really a challenge to get certain family members to eat the food you put in front of them and it can be extremely frustrating, sometimes even offensive. We’ve found through our in-store demos that even the pickiest eaters who try our seasonings LOVE them. We had a mom drop by and let us know about her picky eaters at home (who may also have been present in the shopping cart). She told us how much they loved our seasonings and how it got her picky eaters out of picky eating. Every mom has been there at some point, so it was really an encouragement to us and an inspiration to know how much our seasonings had an effect on even just one family. Her family liked our Mild Blend (You can click it!). Why not give it a try with your picky eaters?

5) For Ease

It’s been a long day. Work was super stressful. And you’re in charge of dinner tonight. You don’t know what to make and you were so busy that you forgot to plan ahead. You get home and manage to find some easy-to-cook ingredients after digging around in your fridge, but they look so plain and bland. You’re not thrilled. And then you remember… you’ve got Seasonest Soul Food Blend. You have instantly upgraded your easy-to-cook meal into something fabulous. Try Soul Food for yourself: Click Here
