Old Bay Blackened Seasoning?

Anyone seen it around and know where I can get some?

  1. Dennis -- I saw it the other day at my local Safeway (in Adams-Morgan on Columbia) -- almost completely positive, but I'll double-check next time I'm there. Is it hard to find?

      My brother in Belgium asked about it and I don't recall ever seeing it. I checked my Safeway in Reston at lunch and didn't see it, but I haven't canvassed far and wide.

        Hey, just confirming that it is indeed at the Safeway here -- today was the first time I'd been back there since I thought I'd spotted it before. Not sure why we'd have it here and not at others, but there you go. It was over by the seafood, a whole display of different types of Old Bay.

          Ah - sure - over by the seafood. I'll look there, and if no luck go to one of the bigger stores. Thanks! My brother is asking for some sent to him in Europe in a care package of other random things.

            It was a total coincidence that I had seen the Old Bay the same day you first posted -- I had decided if I really wanted to feel like a local, I should have some in my pantry, and I'd just happened to buy it that day (not the blackened one). I've been mostly putting it on cheese sandwiches ;) Also love the Old Bay seasoned Utz chips, that's a pantry staple.

            It's interesting what people crave when they're away from home, hope you can track it down for your brother.

              Looks like I have to go to a different store, though. Even at the seafood counter they don't have the blackened version - just regular and then the blackened version from Phillips. But, my regular Safeway is on the smaller side.

    2. just saw it yesterday at the H Mart in Catonsville.

        H Mart in Gaithersburg has the Blackened, Garlic/Herb and Lemon/Herb. I did a double take at the variety of products. It was located in a back endcap near the fish...
