A discussion what I call hybrid spices…these are the spices you buy that contain multiple ingredients. For example, these include some like “Italian Blend” or “Herbs de Provence”. Some of these hybrids are quite useful, while others not so much… you have to read the combination of spices used in each blend to decide whether they are to your own liking. If the exact spices used are not listed on the jar, or only listed as “spices”, then avoid. Realize that while they may include a particular spice you are not keen on, it is a blend… so that a single spice typically does not overpower the others…so feel adventurous.. give it a try, you may discover some that you really like.
