      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.

  4. Amy Miller

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

  5. Mary McDonald

    McCormick! Please bring back Bon Apetit! I agree with all of the above comments. I cannot find it anymore, not even on amazon. Ihave used my last bottle.

  20. Christina B

    BRING THIS SPICE BACK! It was so hard to find Bon Appetit to begin with and when I did, I bought a ton of them. I can no longer make my famous dip. The substitute recipe tastes NOTHING like the original spice 🙁

  21. Eileen Cowles

    I have used Bon Appetit for years in a dill dip recipe from a former college room mate used for special occasions. Over the years I have learned MSG gives me horrendous headaches. I didn’t realize Bon Appetit has MSG. Will try sub for pot luck next week. Too bad I can’t send the rest of my bottle of Bon Appetit to one of you that want it so badly. I will be eliminating it from my dill dip recipe.

  22. Teddie Evans

    When something is so good and working, why would you get rid of it? Please bring it back!!!!🙏

  28. Janet Dye

    Like others before me, I can only hope that you will bring this spice back on the shelves. I have several recipes that will never be the same. It’s your fault that my recipes fall short of perfection.

  29. Jody

    1 teaspoon celery salt
    1 teaspoon onion salt
    1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
    1/4 teaspoon corn starch

    Put in a small jar and shake well.

    Please bring back bon appetit! We use it in some of our traditional holiday recipes. Could you at least make it available to order?

    Spice Island has this exact seasoning, minus the sugar. Beau Monte tastes exactly the same. Amazon carries it as does most Krogers and Publix. About 7.99 per bottle. I use this on everything.
