This is for the thrill-seekers, the flavor chasers, the ones who say "bring on the heat!". Ideal for spicing up your Friday night margarita ritual (try rimming your glass with this!) or adding an extra layer of intrigue to literally anything.

This Mala Spice Mix is a 100% all-natural, non-GMO, and vegan blend of 11 potent herbs and spices. It features the heat of Erjingtiao chili and the rare 'Tribute' Sichuan pepper, sourced straight from the heart of Sichuan. Loved by NYTimes, Food & Wine, Esquire, and more. 

This dust is versatile enough to use as a dry rub for proteins, a twist on scallion pancakes, and even in your favorite snickerdoodle recipe. On popcorn, more is more—dust it on and settle in for a ride.

Flavor Profile

The Mala Spice Mix offers a complex blend of flavors that dance on your palate. It starts with a fiery kick from dried chili peppers, followed by an earthy depth from mushroom powder. Seaweed powder adds a subtle umami undertone, while a medley of spices rounds out the experience with aromatic warmth. This spice mix is a true celebration of Szechuan cuisine, bringing a burst of heat and flavor to each bite of your popcorn.

Tips & Tricks

For popcorn, pair with a good oil and layer this very fine dust on. It might even stick well to dry air-popped popcorn due to it's dusty quality.
