McCormick® Grill Mates® Fires Up Three New Flavors For Summer Grilling
HUNT VALLEY, Md. (May 2007) – One of America’s favorite pastimes, grilling, goes hand-in-hand with summertime, long weekends and hanging out with friends and family in the backyard. So, it’s no surprise that more than 75 percent of grillers fire up the barbecue at least once a week at this time of year.* What every great griller needs is an exciting way to spice up the meats, seafood and vegetables they make week after week. With three new Grill Mates® items, McCormick®, the expert on flavorful grilling, is helping to satisfy cravings for bold taste and variety.
- Grill Mates Lemon Pepper with Herbs Seasoning is a vibrant blend of lemon, coarsely ground black pepper and select herbs. This shake-on seasoning tastes great with grilled fish, shrimp and chicken.
- Grill Mates Garlic and Onion Medley Seasoning is a savory blend of garlic, onion and spices. Use it to jazz up grilled vegetables, potatoes and meats, and keep people coming back for more.
- Grill Mates Hickory BBQ Marinade – Grilling enthusiasts can now enjoy one of their favorite flavors – hickory barbecue – in a homemade marinade. Unlike brush-on barbecue sauces, which are added at the end of cooking, marinades ensure that the flavor is infused throughout – keeping meat from drying out during grilling and turning up taste in every bite. Just add oil and vinegar and marinate 15 minutes for the perfect weeknight meal.
Try these along with the entire McCormick Grill Mates family of flavors. There’s something for everyone, including:
- Seven additional bold shake-on seasonings: Montreal Steak, Spicy Montreal Steak, Montreal Chicken, Mesquite, Hamburger, Barbecue, and Roasted Garlic & Herb
- Five spice rubs: Spicy Hickory and Mesquite wet rubs and Steak, Pork and Chicken dry rubs
- Nine additional marinades: Montreal Steak; Mesquite; Zesty Herb; Southwest; Teriyaki; Peppercorn & Garlic; Chipotle Pepper; Garlic, Herb & Wine; and Tomato, Garlic & Basil
- Two salt free, shake-on seasonings: Salt Free Steak Seasoning and Salt Free Chicken Seasoning
The suggested retail price for the shake-on seasonings, which are located in the spice aisle of grocery stores, is $1.99. Look for the marinade in the seasoning mix section; suggested retail price is $0.99. All three new Grill Mates flavors are available nationwide.
