(Oakland, CA, October 14, 2022) – As the holidays approach, Oaktown Spice Shop, family-owned maker of hand-mixed, artisanal spice blends, has launched a new Avocado Toast Gift Box. Bursting with savory flavors, this collection of four signature spice mixes speak to some of the year’s most popular food trends, featuring Umami Sea Salt, Za’atar, Bombay Orange and Eastern Mediterranean Spice. The new Oaktown Spice Shop Avocado Toast Gift Boxes retail at oaktownspiceshop.com or Oaktown Spice Shop’s three brick and mortar locations in northern California for $41.75 each.
Each spice blend in the Avocado Toast Gift Box is perfect for sprinkling and contains no fillers or artificial flavors. Umami Sea Salt, Bombay Orange and Eastern Mediterranean Spice are proprietary and one-of-a-kind. Every box is handmade, assembled in California and finished with cinnamon sticks and bay leaves to enhance each gift. The Avocado Toast Gift Box joins the line of 23 gift boxes designed for holiday gifting. Other Oaktown Spice Shop offerings include a full catalog of individual spices, teas, salts and chiles.
“Avocado toast is going strong, and we are here for it,” said co-founder Erica Perez, “The holiday season is the perfect time to give an edible gift, packed with the most popular flavor profiles of 2022, such as umami, the fifth taste that encapsulates what we think of as savory.”
