Nando's Peri Peri Grinders: Time is Running Out

Newsflash: It is my sad duty to report the upcoming demise of Nando's Peri-Peri Grinders, which are being discontinued by Nando's. I was quite disappointed to hear that the corporation had already made the decision to cease production of these convenient and tasty whole spice blends with their handy grinder twist-top, since all 3 flavors have a prominent spot on my kitchen counter and I use them regularly when cooking and eating. The good news, albeit temporary, is that we currently have two of the 3 flavors in stock (the Medium Peri Peri Grind and the mild Lemon-Herb Grind) and hope to receive some of the last available Hot Peri Peri Grinders in the near future from Nando's. We'll also continue to re-stock these seasonings for as long as Nando's has product available to send us. However, once Nando's (and we) run out, the Grinders will be gone for good - which is a shame, and hard for me to understand. I love the convenience of being able to use either the whole spices by unscrewing the top, or custom-grinding the spices as needed. The flavors and heat levels for each variety are also superb: I use the Hot grinder over pasta, pizza and meat dishes; the Medium over poultry and "richer-flavored" fish like tuna and salmon; and the Lemon-Herb on salads, steamed vegetables and milder seafood. And because the Grinders are whole-spice blends, their shelf life is years longer than for powdered rubs or ground seasonings. It's hard to believe Nando's is discontinuing them. I'll miss the Peri-Peri Grinds when they're gone....

So if you're like me and you're a fan of Nando's Peri-Peri Grinders, or if you haven't tried them and want to check them out before they're gone, make sure to get your order in ASAP so that you don't miss out.

Zestfully yours,
