Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 184 - 21 Seasoning Salute
Not gonna lie, I bought this seasoning blend only because of its
NAME. 21 Seasoning Salute – could there
BE a cuter name for a spice???
SUPER CHEAP AND REALLY TASTY! You should totally get some.
We do not usually buy herb/spice BLENDS.The only blend we ever use is a Montreal Steak Blend that my parents
gave us approximately a dozen years ago – a huge tub of it that has slowly been
used and has taken up prime real estate in our cupboard since it was purchased
at Costco or Sam’s or whatever big box store they got it at.
Years ago David made me an amazing spice rack. It is wooden and there are slots to hold
glass test tubes, each one filled with a spice.
I would show you a photo here but we are not home right now to snap one,
so you will have to imagine it. Anyway,
that spice rack has never had 21 Seasoning Salute in it, but when we get back
home it will!!
So far we have tried this spice blend on zucchini (good!) and chicken
(also very good!). I think it would be a
safe bet to shake onto most anything (well, not, like, coconut cupcakes, cuz
that would just be gross, but most SAVORY items would be happy to be sprinkled
with it!). The label tells us “It’s hard
to believe that this much flavor comes from a salt-free blend” and I would have
to agree! In fact, I didn’t know it was
missing salt until I read that.
This is what it looked like on our cooking chicken bits.
Here is what is has:onion,
spices (black pepper, celery seed, cayenne pepper, parsley, basil, marjoram,
bay leaf, oregano, thyme, savory, rosemary, cumin, mustard, coriander), garlic,
carrot, orange peel, tomato granules, lemon juice powder, oil of lemon, citric
acid.Hey – now that I count that up
that are 22!But it is called 21 Seasoning Salute…Are they perhaps not counting
the citric acid?Or maybe counting the
two lemon bits as one entry?
However they count it, this is a good product. I am guessing we will go through it much
faster than the steak seasoning J. And this is CHEAP, cheap, cheap compared to
any spice/seasoning at any other grocery store.
Get a bottle and try it.
