Make sure your tastebuds can survive

Avoid having to subsist on less-than-wonderful food wherever you wind up with the Foodie Survival Kit.

The Foodie Survival Kit Uncommon Goods

Whether you're a foodie or just shopping for one, the Foodie Survival Kit may be the perfect gift. Meant to make sure that a foodie caught with a less-than-wonderful meal can spice things up to her own tastes, the Foodie Survival Kit contains dill, mustard, cloves, garlic, nutmeg, paprika, wasabi, basil, onion, ginger, thyme, cinnamon, curry, oregano, cayenne, salt, pepper, soy sauce, and Tobasco sauce. I can just picture sneaking into the kitchen, kit in hand, to spice up the big holiday dinner. If you've got relatives with a tendency toward bland dishes, the Foodie Survival Kit may just come in handy during the rounds of holiday visits.

The Foodie Survival Kit comes in a 4-inch-by-6-inch carrying case, which is small enough to fit inside a purse or even a big pocket if you need to get it past Grandma. The spices are packed inside individual tins, with packets of the sauces, and fit well if your case gets turned around a bit. The spices are organic and easy enough to refill if you run out. If you want, you can even replace them with your favorite spice, if it isn't already included. The Foodie Survival Kit is priced at $35.
