McCormick & Company introduced a lineup of 25 new products for winter meals. The convenient items answer the growing consumer demand for more flavor – as indicated by a 20 percent increase in spice, herb and seasoning purchases in the last five years.
"Our new products make weeknight dinners more exciting because they give home cooks a chance to explore new flavors and cuisines in meals that are easy to make," said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. "For example, you can change up chili by adding fire-roasted garlic or smoky barbecue flavors. You can also make Taco Tuesday sizzle with chipotle pepper, or swap out beef for fiesta-flavored shrimp."
McCormick's new winter products cater to today's more adventurous consumer palate – reflecting a desire for everything from bold chile heat to ethnic flavors, as highlighted in McCormick® Flavor Forecast® reports:
