Good for experimenters, good for learning spices, good for developing some TNT dishes into your kitchen.
I haven't seen them in stores yet (I live in a small MW town), but it is something I wish I could have access to when I was young. For example, the first time I made curry, I wound up with so many jars of spices that I wound up giving/throwing them away when I PCSd. A pinch of this and a tsp of that would have helped me a lot in those days. And, I might add, probably saved me a dollar or two. Nowadays that would be a lot more.
