Creole Seasoning

I live in College Park and wondering if anyone has picked up liquid crab boil and Creole seasoning around here. Also, any opinions on brands ? Thanks

  1. Todd's Dirt may please you. That's a local spice blend sold in Whole Food Stores and Giant stores -- or online at (URL below)

    There are three blends: Original, Crabby, and Bayou. The middle one isn't liquid but may capture the flavor profile you want. I use all three blends, but my favorite is the Bayou.

    1. I like Zatarain's crab boil. It has some nice heat. I think if you check around you can find it in a local chain like Wegman's or Giant. My fave seasoning is Tony C's but it's not easy to find. My parents ship it up from NoLA.

        They also sell it at shoppers food warehouse in college park.

          World Market carries Tony C's, but I prefer Zatarain's. I use the liquid and crab boil bags at the same time.

      2. I go through lots of Zatarains Creole seasoning during home grown tomato season. I prefer it to Tony C.'s. Local Giants and Safeways typically carry it.

        1. Creole seasoning is very easy to make.
