What!? Rum seasoning!? Does that mean I can make anything taste like my favorite cocktail?
Hate to break it to ya, but…no. Unless you cook or bake with actual rum, you won’t taste that much booze. On the other hand, you will experience a tropical flavor so legit that you’ll start speaking pirate (yo-ho, yo-ho!). Instead of whipping out the shredded coconut or bottle of rum, you can easily sprinkle this stuff on anything to lend it some island flair.
The good people at Pepper Palace believe that awesome products create awesome food and even more awesome memories. Using this seasoning will not only dress up that bland piece of chicken, it’ll make cooking more fun! Imagine seeing this jar in your spice cabinet and thinking, “hmm, what pirate-style meal can I make tonight?”
I love a spice blend that inspires creativity. For beginner cooks especially, this mix is an easy, safe way to add exciting new flavor to your everyday dishes. I’ve already added it to homemade trail mix and Hawaiian pizza, with plenty leftover to experiment some more. Not feeling the coconut rum?

I tried making cookies with this seasoning and they tasted oddly savory. So I suggest you either use this seasoning sparingly in sweet applications, or steer clear all together.
