How Rockerbox Started

My name is Rae. My startup business, Rockerbox Garlic, aims to educate people about the virtues of using pure garlic powder. Most people use mass-produced garlic powder that contains fillers, chemicals, and is made from lesser-quality garlic from mega-farms in China. My garlic powder is 100% pure - it has no fillers, no preservatives, no additives whatsoever. I use only fresh US-grown heirloom varieties of garlic and onions, and use a slow low-heat dehydration process to preserve their natural flavors. All of these things contribute to a very high quality product, which is why the flavor of my garlic powder blows any store-bought product out of the water. Believe it or not, that's something that you will never find on the shelves of even the best gourmet markets!

This all started when I got a dehydrator, and tried making this stuff for the first time. I was never a big fan of garlic powder, and thought there was no comparing to the taste of fresh garlic. That opinion probably came from my grandpa, who was a garlic farmer in Webster, NY. His garlic was the pride of all his crops, and is what he was known for throughout Webster. The license plate on his pickup truck said “Aglio”, which means garlic in Italian. He was one of those people you can’t go anywhere with because EVERYONE knew him – we couldn’t walk two aisles in the supermarket without having him strike up a conversation with someone he knew. He took pride in his garlic, and I remember the hours he would spend peeling off the dirt to reveal the beautiful white bulbs underneath. The rafters in the barn hung with braids of curing garlic. He liked to make me laugh by biting into a raw clove, and would roast them in tinfoil on the grill just so I could experience the unadulterated taste of pure homegrown garlic.

The name "Rockerbox" comes from a tool gold-rushers used to sift gold nuggets from dirt. I chose this name for my products for a couple reasons - handmade seasonings are a cut above the rest, so when you choose Rockerbox over factory-produced seasonings, you're picking out the gold nugget! Also, handmade seasonings are a labor of love - a lot of time goes into peeling, chopping, dehydrating, grinding, sifting, and jarring these powders. By the time my first jar was complete, I felt it was deserving of a name that communicated all the time, energy, and materials that went into it!
