GHOST Spice Supply is a subscription service that sends a sampling of small batch spices to your door via their monthly GHOSTpacks.
Each month you’ll receive 3 expertly-curated spice blends in resealable packets. All of the blends are super fresh, restaurant-quality, and blended & packed in 100% solar-powered facilities. The goal at GHOST is to send you spices you can use the very day you receive them. For this reason, they create and ship their blends based on the seasons. (Helloooo, pumpkin spice!)
Subscriptions are $9.99/month with free shipping. (For a limited time, you can save 50% on your first month with coupon code “50OFF1STCJ“.)
Let’s see what’s in the September 2015 GHOST Spice Supply GHOSTpack!
All of the spices were shipped in a brown kraft mailer with a welcome note written on the back.
An info card listed all of the spice blends included in this month’s shipment, along with suggested dishes to use ’em in.
Pumpkin Pie Spice – Heck yeah! While I never quite know what to do with pumpkin pie spice (I’m not a fan of actual pumpkin pie), I still like having it in my possession. I remember using it last year in some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, but their suggestion of french toast sticks sounds mighty good. Mmm.
Asian Five Spice – I see this listed in recipes for vegan stir fry type dishes, but I have no clue exactly what it is. Now that I have some, well, I still don’t know. But I’m willing to experiment with it!
Chinook Chicken & Veg Rub – Again, no idea what’s in this. It might be helpful to include a list of ingredients on each packet… Just a thought. That said, I did look at the FAQ on their website and it says that all of the blends are vegetarian. Not sure if they’re all vegan-friendly though. :/ Anywooo… They suggest using this on/in “beer can chicken” & “gouda & pimento stuffed bird”.
GHOST Spice Supply’s GHOSTpacks are an ideal subscription for anyone who enjoys experimenting with new flavors in the kitchen. I like that they create/ship blends based on the seasons, though I do wish they included the ingredients on each packet. Printed recipes for the suggested dishes would be helpful too!

Thank you so much for the review, Wendy! You make a case for some very solid improvements. Zach and I are gonna go back to the drawing board and continue to improve our GHOSTpack subscription service.
How do you feel about us doing recipe videos instead of doing cards? When we started in May, it appeared most of our customers didn’t need/use their recipes…most people are tied into their phones these days. I have a hunch this notion follows our target market, too.
We did have plans of doing profiles for each of our spices on the website…this would cover ingredients, a description, and more. Would you find this helpful on the bag itself?
Thanks again for giving our product a shot and be on the lookout for updates!
While I agree that most people are pretty much chained to their phones (myself included), when it comes to kitchen-y things, I’d prefer to kick it oldschool with actual recipes/cookbooks. I’d be more likely to make a recipe if it were on a tangible card, as opposed to having to look it up online. Just seems easier if it’s right there with the box to begin with. (For me anyway.)
Same goes for ingredients… It would be a lot more convenient if they were included right on the bag or on a separate info card. Again, just my 2 cents. 🙂
