Can I Have Comino? (in a taco seasoning mix)

Recommended Posts

My mom brought over a pack of Wick Fowler's All Natural Taco Seasoning Mix.  It looks whole30 compliant save one ingredient, Comino.  I don't know what Comino is or if it is whole30 compliant.  Does someone know?

I know, I didn't believe my mother at first that the packet was compliant.  Thanks for your help.

Does anyone know...

Is there some distinction between Comino and Cumin, anybody know?

If Cumin is Comino, then why did they put Comino on the package instead of Cumin.  Pretty odd.  I speak Spanish and English, and no other words on the package are in Spanish.

The consumer affairs office of Reily Foods didn't know of any distinction either.  She told me Comino is the Spanish Version of Cumin, but didn't know what that meant.  Meh, okay.  I'm tired of trying to figure it out.  I'll accept that it is Cumin even though I hate too....  I'm WAY TOO ANALYTICAL (which I think is a good attribute for my Whole30 program).  Alright.  Enjoy the day!

It's the same thing. Cumin, comino, same spice, different language. If you've ever watched Guy's Big Bite on the Food Network, he uses the names interchangeably in the same episode. I guess I just don't understand what's so confusing/complicated about it.

Comino is also a small Maltese Island - probably not the best thing try to season your Tacos with :lol:

Yeah, I've a friend who travels extensively to Malta - I certainly wouldn't mind eating my Tacos there!

She's a beauty, ain't she now. What I wouldn't give to be lounging on the beach soaking up the sun after 8 months of snow and blizzards. 

Matt, you speak Spanish.  You'd have to come along and read the menus for me.

We'll always have google-fu, my friends, and that is like having the answer for everything. I have relatives who treat it like a genie in a bottle...what should I do about this and that. Google fu takes care of everything.
