We're hungry. We're busy. We're curious.
We used to find ourselves in meetings daydreaming about that day, on that beach, when we found that jerk hut. Sweat pouring down our backs from baking in the sun, napkins piled high, chicken piled even higher, beer at the ready. Bliss! Or what about that time we zoned out on the subway and almost missed our stop; too busy remembering the walk home from school in Bombay. Gossiping as we slipped out the school doors, racing across the street to avoid the cars and rickshaws, and always, always, a stop on the walk to buy a snack made right before us – curry leaves crisping in oil, turmeric staining our fingers, all wrapped in newsprint from the day prior. Food is memory. Food is fuel.
And so that’s what we set out to create – globally inspired savory snacks. A ticket to destinations we love, or dream of visiting. A healthy reinvention of the bold flavors we’ll never forget. Savory spicy oat clusters with fruits and nuts for energy, crunch and sweetness. These are ingredients to fuel your day in the best possible way – packed with fiber, 4 whole grains, and protein; with a kick of heat for good measure! We’ll be your guide around the world, one bite at a time. Spice Trail Snacks; Savor the world.
Ever since Preeti moved to the States from her native India, she has dreamt of her grandmother's chicken curry and the bhel puri at the corner shop near her childhood home. She has relentlessly tried to recreate those flavors and, in the process, discovered a penchant for mixing traditional spices with local foods, to create something wholly unexpected yet delicious. In a prior life, Preeti worked in advertising and was a Digital Account Director where she helped leading CPG brands to plan and execute their digital and social media campaigns. She also loves being a student and has a BCOM and an MBA in Marketing from Mumbai University and a Masters in Integrated Marketing Communications from Northwestern University. Some interesting facts: Preeti secretly loves airplane food, she is exceptionally good at badminton and once considered it a serious career possibility, and, despite being a klutz, she does a mean "slow, slow, quick, quick" and can Foxtrot with the best of them.
