I’m not sure exactly when Sam’s Club started selling their larger-sized Member’s Mark organic spices in the minimalist glass jars. All I know is that I was super pleased to see them switch from plastic to glass and eliminate all the clutter on the packaging. The price is competitive, the spice selection is abundant and the well, can I keep on talking to you about how pretty those glass jars are?
So, who cares if the packaging is pretty? Technically, it doesn’t affect how the spices taste, right? I believe that pretty, clean and simple packaging adds a joyful touch. Think about it. Go to your spice drawer, cabinet or pantry right now and pause a moment. Unless you have those Container Store matching jars, your spice area probably looks a little cluttered with different labels and sizes. Of course, variety IS the spice of life (my bad, you know I had to) and seasonings are so much fun when experimenting in the kitchen! But for those times you can add a small touch of pretty to the meal occasion, I say go for it! These spices from Sam’s Club are a nice touch.
Okay, okay. I must admit there is one slight flaw to these spice jars… the lid. Essentially, the lids are screw caps with no shaker control. This works fine for commercial kitchen when someone measures by the cupfuls, yet for us regular folks, a shaker lid would go a long ways.
I searched around on amazon to find a substitute lid with shaker options that would fit the Member’s Mark organic spices and I found one! They come in different colors and I picked white because I love a clean simple look. Here’s the link to the shaker lid multi-pack and see for yourself.
What other small frustrations do you have with your spice cabinet or pantry? I can help!
Eat well, my friends. Eat well.
