Grammy Award-winning musician T-Pain teamed up with James Beard Award-winning chef Meherwan Irani for a set of spices just in time to heat up the holidays. Irani’s Asheville-based company Spicewalla produced the spice collaboration. The Spicewalla + T-Pain collection is a pack of three spice mixtures aimed to be rubbed on chicken wings. The company explains, “A love for charcoal, wings, and ATL brought this unlikely duo together to create a Magic City-worthy (IYKYK) flavor explosion.”
The rubs, named Sugar Daddy, the Juice, and Straight Fire, range from brown sugar-sweet to Kashmiri chili-hot. While intended for wings, Spicewalla suggests other uses for the spices, like sprinkling the Juice, with hints of pineapple and jalapeno, over steak for tacos or in a bloody mary.
T-Pain writes on his Instagram, “Spiced so nice, we might have to buy u a drank,” in reference to his 2008 hit ”Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’).”
The sets are available on Spicewalla right now for $29.99.
