We Won

Wow! The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce selected Herbs & Spice as the recipient of the WE award for Best New Product or Service for 2008. What an honor! This is only possible because of you, our valued customers. Thank you for making 2008 the best year yet. The picture below will show you the beautiful award that we received. If you get a chance to come by the store, we will show it to you in person.

What a year end it has been! First Best in Cincinnati, an on-line magazine (see the November 7, 2008 post below). Then one of the 110 Best of Cincinnati picks by Cincinnati Magazine under the category Best Smoked Salts. Finally, to be chosen Best New Product or Service for 2008 by the Chamber, needless to say we are proud but humbled by all of this.

We are in the midst of a great December at the store. Thank you so much for your patronage. Just a quick reminder, after the first of the year, we will begin the Spice of the Month program, right here in the blog. The first five will be; Adobo Seasoning, parika, chives, nutmeg and dill. In addition to telling you about these spices we will also include recipes for you to try them. Some of you that have stopped by the store have mentioned that you would like to submit recipes for some of these spices too. I would love to see that happen. We are working on some ways to recognize and honor you for participating.

Our great staff along with Susan and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and/or Happy Hanukkah. Our prayer is for better economic times for 2009.

The Colonel
