I’ve seen Jamaican jerk flavoring used for a number of products, but I have no idea what it is. Thanks to Wikipedia, I’ve learned it’s usually allspice and Scotch bonnet peppers, but may also include cloves, cinnamon, scallions, nutmeg, thyme, garlic, brown sugar, ginger, and salt. Well, my culinary IQ just went up a point. It’s now at 4. (Spotted by Sean S at Walgreens.)
If you’re out shopping and see an interesting new product on the shelf, snap a picture of it, and send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with where you found it and “Spotted” in the subject line. Or reply to us (@theimpulsivebuy) on Twitter with the photo, where you spotted it, and the hashtag #spotted. If you’ve tried the product, share your thoughts about it in the comments.
Also, if you want to send in photos and are wondering if we’ve already covered something, don’t worry about it. Let us worry about it.
