I had the pleasure of reviewing Garlic Gold Nuggets. I think my favorite aspect of cooking is the magic I get to make with flavors. Cooking, in general, can be so scientific while maintaining a sense of malleable fluidity and it's really just all kinds of awesome. Many people ask me what my secret ingredients in most of what I do is; what is my go-to ingredient in almost every meal I cook? Although I could never just pick one thing, I can say this. I have a severe obsession with herbs, and another obsession with garlic. I put both on everything in any manner I can devise. Enter: Garlic Gold's Herbs de Provence and Southwest Nuggets. Need a description? Little gems of heaven. Product received for review. Post contains affiliate links.
I was lucky enough to get to try both products, and both of them were truly sensational. I adore easy little add-ins that allow you to create tons of flavor with little to no mess and effort. If you're the same, look no further. The Southwest flavor was pretty much exactly what it sounds like- zesty, a little spicy, and perfect for any authentic Mexican dish. I used it a few times mixed with a bean and corn dish, and in my awesome veggie taco dish! It was the perfect addition and made for a truly unique experience.
I have to admit, however, that if I had to pick between the two I would certainly go with the Herbs de Provence Nuggets which were so delightful and fresh that it was nearly overwhelming. By toasting the chopped garlic in extra-virgin olive oil and adding an excellent blend of French seasonings, the company provides a way for any cook to add some fresh flavor and depth to any meal! My favorite was simply sprinkling the Nuggets onto my tomatoes and fried ‘eggs' for my breakfast in the morning, although I did use them for some recipes in place of various required dried herbs and it worked fabulously! It was so nice to only have to retrieve ONE bottle from my pantry, rather than four or five various bottles per recipe.
These aren't the only products Garlic Gold offers. They also have a variety of other Nugget flavors, the original Garlic Gold, and Garlic Gold Oils and Vinaigrettes. The prices for each item varies per size and type, however all of the products are very reasonably priced and you can get up to a 20% discount for ordering multiples of each as well! Bottom line: If you have a love for exquisitely seasoned food that is not only simple to make but fun as well, Garlic Gold is your answer!
