Are you singing that song yet? "Look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities." One thing that makes Alaska unique is that all three species of North American bears flourish here - Black, Brown and Polar Bears. Bears and people are very similar in the kinds of foods we like and Bear Necessities is a convenient useful premium blend of four powerful spices.


This spice blend is a jack-of-all-trades. It couldn't be easier to add that basic flavor dimension to recipes that you enjoy. Try Bear Necessities on anything to add great flavor and leave your taste buds craving more. Keep it on hand in your spice cabinet to add to potatoes, to vegetables, to soup, to casseroles, to almost any meat or seafood dish, and it even adds some kick to eggs and breakfast foods.
