Any herbs/spices that you'd find dried, and in jars/packages, and such.

After asking this question on my fb page as well, I'm beginning to think I'm the only person who doesn't care for cumin...

With Eleven Secret Herbs and Spices, Colonel Sanders would be highly disappointed with your request. Sometimes it seems like he sold only half the recipe anyway. I hope this gives an inkling of hard this is to choose. There is another few I prefer to use fresh, so I found a little personal wiggle room.

Cardamom
Cumin
Cinnamon
Thyme
Chile

For me it's
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Oregano
Chili Powder
Lemon Pepper (if you consider this out of the category, the next often would be tie between cumin for Mexican or thyme for Italian)

Hey merstar :)

Again thank you all!!
The more different people that answer, the better :)
This gives me a really good idea of people's preference.

Man, you guys use a lot of cumin. One jar lasts me for years. And that's even using it in rubs. It's a big jar though.
