I remember when my mom started to buy Tastefully Simple when I was a teenager. It was a staple for all parties and many meals. My favorite seasoning/dip then and still today is the Garlic, Garlic. Now, as a busy mother, I myself started ordering these products again for flavorful meals, appetizers, and desserts that were simple and quick crowd-pleasers. One of my favorite features of these products is nothing is artificial, so I am providing my family with quality ingredients they might not even know they are eating like onions! My favorite products are the roasted garlic-infused olive oil (I use this for everything), the Sweet Pepper Jalapeno Jam (amazing on brie), Honey Teriyaki Sauce (great marinade for chicken and beef), Butterscotch Brownies, and the seasonings (for meats, salad dressings, and my favorite: dips). Clearly, I love it all, which is why I decided to start selling it.
what is Tastefully Simple?
Our name says it all! Tastefully Simple was founded in 1995 by Jill Blashack Strahan on the belief that people are in search of crazy delicious food that’s insanely easy to prepare. Headquartered in Minnesota where Jill grew up, our first “warehouse” was a small shed where orders were packed on a pool table. Currently, approximately 75 team members work from a state-of-the-art facility at 1920 Turning Leaf Lane SW in Alexandria, MN.
our way of doing business
Tastefully Simple started as a party plan company, and this model continues to be our largest selling channel, with thousands of independent consultants throughout the country. They share our made-in-the-USA seasonings, sauces, baking mixes, meal and entertaining kits and gifts through home tastings, online parties, catalog sales and tastefullysimple.com
Though we’re best known for our top-selling Bountiful Beer Bread Mix®, Tastefully Simple’s product line includes signature seasonings, sauces and baking mixes, all prepared by adding two additional ingredients or less. Our TS EatWell products, which constitute 85% of our line, are clean-label foods that contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Tastefully Simple is known for its high-energy corporate culture, which extends to our consultant salesforce. Our Principles – Be Abundant, Make Magic, Do Your Best, and Be Real – offer guidance for how team members and consultants represent us in the world. Each year, outstanding consultants and team members, nominated by their peers, are honored for exemplifying the company’s core values.
