McCormick Flavour Shots :
4.42 out of 5 based on 270 reviews.

As a busy Mum, it’s hard to come up with interesting meal ideas for every day of the week. But McCormick has solved this problem with their new Flavour Shots range of recipe bases.

Introducing McCormick Flavour Shots …

McCormick Flavour Shots are single-use little pots of specially selected herbs, spices and seasonings that are infused in Sunflower Oil. They add a real explosion of flavour to anything you cook!

And what’s really great about Flavour Shots – is that you add them to ordinary ingredients you already have in your fridge or pantry – chicken pieces, veggies, canned beans, rice – to create something really special.

There’s a range of five McCormick Flavour Shots that create endless variety.

Each Flavour Shot gives you the freedom to create all sorts of delicious meals, quickly and easily.

  • Chicken Fried Rice for brilliant Chinese dishes – including the easiest, most authentic tasting fried rice you’ve ever made!
  • Chilli Con Carne has the true Mexican Flavour everyone loves.
  • Pad Thai is an unbelievably fragrant blend of spices that also makes fantastic salads.
  • Zesty Chicken Curry adds real depth of flavour without the heat.
  • Spanish Chicken Hotpot also lets you create magic with mince meat.

You may have tried recipe bases in the past – but nothing like these. McCormick Flavour Shots really are unique.

Where to find McCormick Flavour Shots

McCormick Flavour Shots are available now. Look for all 5 flavours in the recipe bases section of Woolworths and other major and independant supermarkets. RRP $2.49.

    Marvellous McCormick

    I happily purchased McCormick products after reading the reviews by Mom’s community members. I decided to test McCormicks out on the family over the weekend as they love good food. The verdict from everyone is a bug thumbs up- five stars! We will continue to buy and enjoy McCormick products.

    Big taste, small package!

    After seeing this nifty little product during my grocery shop, I’m very impressed how yummy it tasted! Even the usual fussy hubby was impressed! So, so, easy to use & super tasty as well. It’s great that they don’t take up much space either in the pantry ;-). We tried the Zesty Chicken Curry — loved it! Well worth a try!

    Surprisingly good!

    I’m always looking for new flavours to give our family so that our 1 year old girls try new things and the Pad Thai was a hit!! I purchased this after seeing other reviews but tried not to have any expectations and I wasn’t disappointed at all — the flavours were rich and had just the right amount of everything with nothing overpowering anything else, even my husband who isn’t a big fan of Pad Thai normally has asked me to get this one again!

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

    This product was not something I had initially wanted to try, but after hearing some positive feedback about it, I purchased the Spanish Chicken Hotpot and Pad Thai. Tonight, we tried the Spanish Chicken Hotpot.

    To say the flavours are FANTASTIC is an understatement. This was SO GOOD! Super easy steps to follow, and our bowls were polished clean. I added an extra capsicum to bulk up the veggie content (and also because I needed to use up both capsicum in the fridge). Hubby has put in a request for this to be added to our menu on a regular basis!

    Can’t wait to try the Pad Thai!

    deliciously time saving

    we loved these all so much.
    They came on special this week at my local supermarket and I broke the budget by buying two of each variety for both us and our 16 year old grandson who is living away from home.
    He tried them here and they fit nicely into his budget and give him options rather than just plain boring foods.

    Chilli con carne - yum!

    Made Chilli Con Carne and it was delicious, thought it might be hot and spicy but it wasn’t, the family loved it, put pasta with it for the kids and we had salad wraps. So quick and easy. Yum yum yum :)

    Not good on flavour : (

    I tried a few McCormick Flavour Shots, and I didn’t find the flavours that great. Yes they are quick and easy, but the end product always tasted a little processed, compared to some sachet’s I’ve used in the past. I always ended up adding more salt, or herbs to balance out the flavours. I wouldn’t buy them again.

    Love them!

    When you want to serve up something relatively healthy, tasty and quick, McCormick Flavour Shots are what you want!
    The instructions are easy to follow, not at all hard, just needing to add meat and a bit of veg.
    McCormick Flavour Shots can be found in my pantry for those nights when I’m not sure what to cook and I want something that requires minimal effort.

    Great authentic taste

    These are such a great idea! So easy to use and tasty flavour combinations. I tried the Spanish Chicken Hotpot but used it with mince and it made a quick and delicious mid-week meal. Will definitely try the Zesty Chicken Curry and the Chilli Con Carne – lovely winter warmers now the cooler weather is here!

    McCormicks flavour shots are the best

    I am buying these flavoured shots on a regular basis now. I recently cooked with the chicken fried rice one & my fried rice tasted amazing. So easy to use with a delicious flavour. I’m testing the Pad Thai tomorrow night & have a few I keep in my pantry as they are so handy.

    Instantly injects flavour into any dish!

    These McCormick flavour shots are a great idea. I used the chilli con carne one in my spag bol yesterday (to see what it was like) and it instantly lifted the flavour. It was so easy to use – just open the packet and pop in! My hubby and little 2 & 1/2 year old loved it – said it was one of the best spag bols I’ve ever made! I am planning on using the pad thai one tomorrow for dinner.

    Quick, easy and great flavour

    These cute little packages caught my eye at the shop so thought I would give it a go. The flavour was fantastic and so quick and easy to use. will be buying again and trying different flavours. I have already recommended to my mum to try for my dad who is Mr Fussy and doesn’t like package foods and doesn’t really like trying new foods. He gave a thumbs up to amazingly

    Great Concept!

    I love the whole concept of McCormick Flavour Shots, a blend of oil with lovely herbs and spices.
    McCormick Flavour Shots are easy to use and can be added to a range of ingredients.
    The instructions are simple with a basic recipe included, as well as suggestions to modify the meal however, you really are only limited by your imagination and what’s in the fridge!
    Our favourite flavour is the zesty chicken curry, it has a lovely fresh taste!

    recommendations were right

    I happened across these after seeing very positive reviews in amongst this community and I am glad that I followed advice. The flavour shots give a little extra to the meal compared to other recipe bases (especially the powdered ones) and are simpler to use and also don’t create another dish to wash as some bases do. This was a great little find that I will definitely use again over similar products in the future

    Handy in the pantry

    I usually use McCormick Zesty chicken curry but was also pleasantly surprised by McCormicks flavour shot Chilli Con Carne recently. The kids ate it all up and for the adults I added a touch of chilli to jazz it up. I usually prefer to make my meals from scratch however, for those times when I simply can’t be bothered, this is a very handy product to have.

    Full of flavour!

    McCormick Flavour Shot Zesty Chicken Curry is one of my favourite flavour shots to use. The flavour shots are so simple to use and make a great recipe base. You can either follow the instructions or easily adapt the recipe to suit your own tastes and preferences. These marvellous little shots are full of flavour!

    Fantastic

    I decided to purchase the flavour shots after reading about them on this site and also seeing adverts on television. I had a family tea planned so I decided to incorporate this into my cooking, we were already having stir frys etc so I thought I’d try the chicken fried rice. It was a big hit with everyone and we have since purchased a few of the others. Great product.
