      Omg this is my favorite I’m so mad I can’t find it any more. It was always hard to find si when i could find it i bought every bottle. Now its discontinued. Bring it back please…

    I have not been able to find Bon Appetit and wonder when you will be bringing it back on the market. Old World Spices have Bon Appetit, but it contains Silicon Dioxide, a chemical which is toxic to me.

    You can purchase Bon Appetit on Amazon. My mom used this for a recipe. She looked everywhere then found it on Amazon.

    The McCormick website shows to use 1 Tablespoon Celery Salt, 1 Tablespoon Sugar and 1 teaspoon Onion powder. Not equal parts.

    I use a lot of McCormick Spices, However I am out of Bon Appetit seasoning salt, and I can’t seem to find it. Not even in your list of seasonings. Wal Mart has not had it for the last 2 months that I have been looking for it. Can you tell me where I ca get it.

    My family loves Bon Appetit Seasoning Salt but it is no longer available. My potato salad and other meals are just not the same without it. Please bring this seasoning back!

    So disappointed when McCormick changed the Bon Appetit recipe from MSG (love the stuff) to sugar. Please bring the original recipe cack

    Why did you take bon appetit off the shelves? From all the above notes I can’t see why it would not be a best seller. Please bring it back. The above recipe isn’t the same.
