I don’t know about you, but I still haven’t finished my holiday shopping. If you’re also a procrastinator, you should definitely stop by Oaktown Spice Shop. They’ve been open on Grand Avenue for six years and now they also have a location in Albany. If you need a last minute holiday gift idea, you should stop by to look at their gift boxes, which are priced between $19 – 77.
Receiving an Oaktown Spice Shop gift box was like getting a new opportunity for deliciousnesses. They sent me a sample Lake Merritt BBQ gift box, which came with one 1/2 cup jar each of Mexican Adobo and St. Basil’s BBQ Rib & Chop Rub, along with bay leaves and cinnamon sticks. Opening the box made me imagine a BBQ on the lake, with sunshine and friends and I could already smell the meat cooking on the grill.
