Test new seasonings in your own kitchen. Visit consumertesting.mccormick.com and sign up. If you're accepted for an at-home study, McCormick will mail you a full-size sample of the test product along with recipes to try. Once you've made one recipe, complete an online survey. Testers may participate four times per year. Plus, you get more than a free sample—McCormick also pays volunteers $10 to $15 for home testing, often via amazon.com gift cards.

Sign up at bettycrocker.com, pillsbury.com, livebetteramerica.com or boxtops4education.com; each will send you one sample every month.
