Weve been trying out loads of these new Perfect Shake seasonings over the last few weeks as Ive been trying to cut salt out of my diet. Now normally I am totally addicted to salt and I have LOADS of it on whatever Im having for dinner but obviously that is really unhealthy and as my health kick is going really well at the minute Ive bene trying to give my food much more flavour without making it unhealthy for me to eat. Normally when I cook mash I mix chives in with and and it tastes gorgeous (even if I do say so myself) but when I recently ran out of chives and couldnt find any in our local shop I had to buy this. Im very glad I did because its something we have been using ever since and not just to add more flavour to mash you can mix this with pretty much anything.
Price: Around £2

Looking at the bottle we have of this there are no nutritional values at all which leads me to believe that this might be quite bad for you and they are trying to not let you know that fact. If you only use a small amount each time you cook with this though it shouldnt be a big problem as with everything its good in moderation.
This product contains: Barley, Wheat, Milk & Soya. Suitable For Vegetarians.
Schwartz recommend using 4tbsp for a 2 person serving when making mash which I think is more than enough as this is quite strong smell and taste wise so less is more. I dont think that the garlic taste is most prominent in this seasoning which surprised me as I thought it would be. The main tastes are of mixed herbs, chives and pepper and it has quite a spicy edge to it but not too much as I hate spice and I really enjoy this one. The garlic taste is noticable more towards the end but I would have preferred it to be slightly stronger as I am a massive garlic fan I have it with everything. I think they have mixed all the flavours together really well and my only slight issue is I wish the garlic was a bit stronger but it is very nice all the same.
You dont have to just use this with mash it can be used as a marinade for meat as it goes really well with chicken and it makes a great seasoning for wedges as they taste just like ones you would get from Pizza Hut or something like that and it makes them go dead crispy and they taste amazing. This seasoning can make a really ordinary thing like mash totally different and adds a nice twist to a normal and boring addition to your meal. I highly recommend it but Ill be adding a bit more garlic to my food as this just isnt strong enough for me. It'll still be getting 5 stars though.
