Whether those on your holiday list are easy or impossible to please, we promise these options are going to go over well.
In the six months since Tami and Vernon Brown opened The Spice & Tea Exchange in downtown Sioux Falls, Tami can literally count on one hand how many returns the store has had.
That means good odds for your holiday gifting. But just to make things even easier, we’ve got a look at the top 10 picks at 328 S. Phillips Ave. based on the first months in business at The Spice & Tea Exchange. Plus, they’re bundling these items into “Sioux Falls Favorites” for easy grab and go gifts.
It’s great on chicken, baked into bread or mixed with pasta dishes. Tuscany is part of the Custom Blends collection. They are hand-blended in the store from the ingredients on the shelves – salts, peppers, spices and herbs – and will kick up the flavor of baked and grilled meats. Any of the 85 custom blends also work well with olive oil as a bread dip. Many make excellent veggie dips when mixed to taste with sour cream.
“Customers love when we’re blending Florida Sunshine because the citrus aroma permeates the air,” Brown says. The salt and citrus blend tastes especially good on fish or eggs, but guests tell Brown they’re exchanging their ordinary table salt for Florida Sunshine.
The above make up a small fraction of the tasty products on the shelves, so you’re bound to find something suited for those difficult ones on your holiday list.
Shopping this Thanksgiving weekend? Specials will include $10 grinder bottle products, plus spend $100 or more and you’ll receive a $10 gift card for your next visit.
The Spice & Tea Exchange of Sioux Falls also offers many gourmet accessories, including hard-to-find tea steep ware. Whether it’s the in-store experience or online videos and recipes demonstrating how to use the products, the satisfaction is demonstrated in the lack of returned products.
“Because guests can experience the products by smelling and tasting, they know the quality of what they’re getting before they purchase,” Brown says. “But we’re also here to help walk you through the products and ensure you select something everyone on your holiday list will love.”
The store is open at 328 S. Phillips Ave. from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Whether those on your holiday list are easy or impossible to please, we promise these sweet and savory options are going to go over well.
