We are very excited about the return of four of our incredibly popular spice blends; Beer Can Chicken, Beer Can Cow, Fire Salt and Cinnamon Grilling Rub.
These spices would routinely sell-out at markets. In fact, it is because of customer demand, that we have brought them back.
What makes them so good? To start, we use only fine, Italian sea salt and pure, natural spices. You wont find any MSG, silicon dioxide, artificial colors or fillers added to our blended spices.
Whether you love to bake, grill, sauté, sear or rotisserie, Takoda Gourmet Spice Blends will add that special flair you're looking for.
BEER CAN CHICKEN – An incredibly easy way to make a popular favorite. We put the beer in the blend, so all you have to do is rub it on and go. Excellent for whole or cut up chicken, chicken breasts or even turkey.
BEER CAN COW – A tongue-in-cheek spin on our popular Beer Can Chicken spice blend. Also made with beer in the blend and a selection of spices that compliment beef. Perfect for ribs, roasts, steaks, meatloaf and burgers. Beer Can Cow is even great on French fries.
FIRE SALT – A spicy blend of peppers, Italian sea salt and a hint of vinegar for that slight “buffalo sauce” flavor. Fire Salt is fantastic in chicken, fish, shrimp even rice and vegetable dishes.
CINNAMON GRILLING RUB – Who would have thought “cinnamon” in a meat rub? We did, and the flavor is out of this world! While cooking, the cinnamon nicely compliments the smoky flavor of grilled pork and beef. Try this on one ribs, pork loin, chops, steaks, burgers, tri-tip... even prime rib.
All Takoda Gourmet Spices come in the wide-mouth “Pinch & Rub” jars, to make spicing up your next meal, even easier.
You will find Takoda Gourmet Spice Blends online at Amazon and at select retailers.

TAKODA GOURMET SYRUPS – Every Takoda Gourmet flavored syrup is all natural, with:
• NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS
• NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS
• NO ARTIFICAL PRESERVATIVES
• NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS
They are also the first of their kind to be made with Whey Low® Type D, Sugar For Diabetics, a patented blend of natural fruit sugar and milk sugar that offers the lowest glycemic index for diabetics (GI less than 12 vs. 100 for glucose).
This unique sweetener has 67% fewer calories, 75% less impact carbohydrates and a 70% lower glycemic index than sucrose. When used in combination with dietary carbohydrates, is low-calorie and low-glycemic. When you compare the lower calories in Takoda Syrups (averages 25 calories or less) to those of the national brands (usually 80-100 calories per serving), you will see just how wonderfully different Takoda Gourmet Syrups really are.
When you take a sweetener, voted best by the Washington Post (Bonnie S. Benwick, washingtonpost.com, May 7th, 2008), and combine it with only the finest extracts and ingredients, you are going to get a better gourmet flavored syrup... Takoda Gourmet Syrups. Which may be why Takoda is fast becoming the syrup of choice, for those seeking natural alternatives for syrups and artificial sweeteners.
Equally important, Takoda Gourmet syrups contain no aspartame or sucralose (Splenda®), so there is no risk of artificial sweetener sensitivity.
Whether you are watching calories, seeking lower glycemic alternatives or on a low or a smart carbohydrate diet, Takoda could be what you're looking for to help “keep the sweet” in otherwise boring diet plans.
