I got roped into trying another instafamous product. Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning.
Does the Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning stand up to the hype? In a word, YES.
Following a low carb diet means a few things: lots of lean meats and vegetables, nothing sweet, and the source of a little pain when someone says “bagel” or any other source of gluten. But everything BUT the bagel? I can handle that. I don’t have a TJ’s in my area and I just didn’t feel like ordering online. Seeing post after post after post eventually wore me down, and I ordered a bottle off of Amazon. What’s 2 days of agony when I’ve already lived 32 years without it?
Naturally, I stalked the tracking number every half hour after notification it was shipped. A couple of days later, it finally arrived and I couldn’t get home fast enough. I pulled into the driveway, slipped to my mailbox and scurried up my front steps.
The padded envelope it was delivered in was the only thing standing between me and that seasoning.
I tore it open, peeled off the plastic around the lid, and took a sniff. It smelled like somethin’ special. I shook a couple bits into the palm of my hand, touched my tongue to it and savored every tid bit it had to offer. Instantly I understood what the hype was about. I am telling you it was like Jesus himself brushed it off a fresh bagel, bottled it and sent it right to Millsboro.
I’ve used it on pretty much everything I eat and within the first week I had used more than half the bottle. After snapping out of the daze Trader Joe’s placed me in, I realized it was probably too much salt and to use it a little easier. Needless to say, this seasoning is the jam and it’s worth every cent of the triple priced $6 I have to pay.
If you haven’t tried it, and don’t have a TJ’s in your area, go here.
My Rating: Thumbs Up
The only way this could be better is if it were available to purchase by the gallon.
