It’s rare when we can say something is truly free, but this Chipotle Tapenade really was.
I didn’t get a mass email from some PR type; instead I got a direct message on Twitter that I had won an All Spice Café product in a random drawing - ANY that I desired! How great is that? (They do giveaways every Monday.)
After much thought, I chose the Chipotle Tapenade, because I LOVE tapenade AND chipotle.
No one asked me to say anything, but, really, this is great stuff. It has chunky pieces of Kalamata olives in it and just enough of that wonderful smoky chipotle taste. It packs a punch of flavor into even a tiny spoonful.
I tried it by itself AND on chips with just a bit of sour cream to cool down the heat. Fantastic. I also think it would be great tossed on pasta. And, really, a little goes a long way.
