These Innovative Chef-Crafted Spice Pods Are Like K-Cups For Home Cooking

Finally, someone has come out with an appetizing pod that we can actually eat — not like those delicious-but-deadly Tide Pods. Jokes aside, a new company called Occo has rolled out a collection of innovative spice pods, and they could very well revolutionize how you prepare meals in the kitchen.

Spices generally last only 3-6 months after opening before losing their flavor, which means the jar of smoked paprika you bought to make paella six years ago has long since expired. Occo solves this problem with their spice pods, which contain micro-portions of high-quality spices sealed in forever-fresh aluminum pods that are 100% recyclable. That means you’ll actually get a chance to use your spices before they go bad, cutting back dramatically on food and packaging waste. The Occo spice pods are available in several different configurations, organized in cards based on specific recipes or spice groups. There’s even a collection of chef-curated card decks, giving you the exact spices you’ll need to make several standout meals. Prices start at $5 a card, with discounts available on multiple buys.
