5 Reasons Soom Foods Products are Great Holiday Gifts

The holiday season is right around the corner, and you haven’t purchased your holiday gifts, have you? It’s okay if you haven’t – your secret is safe with us. Soom Foods makes excellent holiday gifts, and below are a few reasons why.


Reason 1: It’s a food item!

The holiday season is all about family, friends, and eating. This means lots of cooking, baking, and snacking. If you’re going to others’ homes or parties to celebrate the holidays, give them a gift that they can use in their holiday cooking and baking! Tahini is an incredible ingredient in savory dishes, but it also adds a beautiful note of nuttiness and richness to an array of desserts. If the gift receivers are foodies, they will be extra thankful to receive Soom Foods tahini, the tahini favored by The Kitchn.

Reason 2: It’s easy to use

People don’t want to use complicated ingredients all the time. Sometimes, they just want to use a dollop of an ingredient to elevate a dish, or even fix their cravings for something sweet without having to run to the store or bake. That’s where Soom comes in. Many drizzle Soom tahini onto a dish, or eat Chocolate Soom #straightfromthejar. Chocolate Soom fulfills that sweet craving instantly, and that’s another reason why it’s an easy and great gift to give!

Reason 3: It’s super versatile

You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy tahini. Sesame seeds (and tahini) are some of the most versatile and ancient superfoods the world has ever come across. We’ve told you this time and time again, but tahini can be used as an ingredient in:

  1. Sauces
  2. Spreads
  3. Dips
  4. Dressings
  5. Smoothies/Shakes
  6. Desserts
  7. Soups
  8. As a fat substitute, like combining it with applesauce to replace oil!
  9. Etc.

As you can see, you can use tahini in an endless number of ways, and if the people you’re purchasing this gift for need inspirations, we have over 150 recipes to help guide them on how to use this ingredient.

Reason 4: It’s nutritious

The last thing one wants to think about is eating healthy during the holiday season, bringing us back to Point #1. We all love to cherish the moments we have with our friends and families during the holiday season, and that’s usually centered around indulgent food! With tahini, you can still gain some vital nutrients at the same time. As a fantastic source of protein, calcium, iron, omega 3’s and 6’s and other nutrients, how could you go wrong?

Reason 5: Award-winning chefs prefer Soom!

If you needed another reason to give Soom as a gift, maybe this reason will be the be-all, end-all: it’s favored by James Beard Award-winning chefs around the country. Michael Solomonov, Alon Shaya, Zach Engel, and Ana Sortun are loyal to Soom. And even “Top Chef Masters” contestant and Food & Wine Best New Chef honoree Jenn Louis. Here are some of their reasons:

  • “Soom is our preferred tahini and we love that we can always rely on the consistency.  We prefer Soom because it’s texture is creamy and silky with no chalky or overly bitter qualities.  It will make you want to make everything with tahini.” – Ana Sortun | The Oleana Group | Cambridge, MA.
  • “Soom tahini’s quality is consistently fresh, rich and perfectly creamy. From one supply to the next, every batch has the same velvety texture and deep earthy taste.” – Jenn Louis | Ray Restaurant | Portland, OR.

PS: We won’t judge you if you purchase a few bottles for yourself. 😉

Happy Holidays!
