A Taste of JamaicaA Taste of Jamaica

by Venesha Johnson | Associate Writer

Knowing and comprehending some of Jamaica's most well-known dishes and snacks requires deep diving into their vibrant and varied culture and population.

The National Baking Company has remained steadfast in its commitment to giving the people high-quality, authentic Jamaican food throughout its growth from a modest bakery in Jamaica to a well-known retailer on a global scale.

Staples like the National Spice Bun, Bulla with cheese, and National Cream Crackers are present in every Jamaican home. The hearty meals feature a fusion of flavours like their Jamaican Curry and the highly regarded Jamaican Jerk seasoning.

A Taste of Jamaica was created out of a desire at the National Baking Company to share this nostalgia of Jamaican food and culture with their diaspora around the globe and for those who are interested in trying something new and exotic in the kitchen.

They began in the 1950s with just 9 bakers, 8 salesmen, and a few vans and cars. Since then, they have grown into a full-fledged manufacturing facility devoted to providing food for the country. As they increase their overseas distribution, they are collaborating with businesses all over Jamaica to deliver a wide selection of local goods to your door.

Those who are far from their unique rock can experience that authenticity thanks to A Taste of Jamaica. They provide the best local products to all fans of Jamaican cuisine by shipping the goods to all 48 contiguous United States.


They have everything you'll need for each meal and snack to make yourself at home. Taste of Jamaica offers fresh, locally made goods from various partners in addition to the delectable HTB and National treats that Jamaicans love.

  • Biscuits- such as charlie and ginger tea biscuits
  • Bun & Bulla- Jamaican bulla cakes, Spice buns and easter buns.
  • Chips- eg. plantain chips and banana chips
  • Cookies-peanut butter, vanilla, strawberry and duplex sandwich cookies.
  • Crackers- cream and water crackers
  • Jams & Jellies- pepper jelly
  • Seasonings- jerk, curry and oxtail seasonings
  • Teas-cinnamon, ginger, cerasee, peppermint, soursop and moringa tea bags

How it works:

  • Click- Browse through their catalogue of iconic Jamaican snacks, treats and food items.

  • Pick- too many options to choose from? Shop their bundles to save big money and discover some of their top sellers. Find, select, and pay for your favourite products if you already know what they are!

  • Indulge- There is no need to travel. Receive a delicious delivery of Jamaican cuisine at your door.

Can I create my Taste of Jamaica own bundle?

You can also combine different types of your favourite snacks. To create your bundle, simply add your desired items to your cart. Standard bundles can also be bought in addition to any extras you'd like, but these items might arrive in a different package. Also, keep in mind that splitting up large orders may necessitate additional shipping fees.

Why is there a maximum spend and weight limit?

They know that purchasing in bulk is much simpler because it is more cost-effective, lasts longer, and has more to share. However, orders must be restricted for them to effectively manage their inventory and guarantee the satisfaction of all of their customers. Their current order cap is $200. (USD). They typically save their wholesale clients who are interested in buying for large resale orders.

When will my Taste of Jamaica bundle arrive?

Orders placed after 3 PM (EST) are usually processed the following day. Please allow 1 to 3 business days for the processing of your order. On business days only, A Taste of Jamaica ships. Weekends and public holidays do not count as workdays. For a complete list of observed holidays, please visit

Typical delivery times for standard packages are 8 to 10 business days. Although delivery by the anticipated date is not guaranteed, it is rare for packages to arrive after that time.

Besides these delicious snacks that they offer, if you are missing Jamaican food, there is a recipe section on their website with Jamaican recipes, just to give you an idea if you don't know what to prepare, or if you have friends who are ready to try their hands at preparing Jamaican food for the first time.
