THE OLD BAY STORY
Over 75 years ago, Baltimoreans first sampled Old Bay's zesty flavour and from that moment on, seafood wasn't really seafood without it.
Since then, crab and shrimp aficionados have sworn by this deliciously unique blend of spices and herbs, and now the whole world is sharing in the flavour that once belonged solely to the Chesapeake Bay area.
WHAT'S IN A NAME?
So how did this unique, bold blend get its name? Believe it or not, its original name was "Delicious Brand Shrimp and Crab Seasoning." That name didn't stick, but the taste sure did. A more memorable name was inspired by a steamship line that travelled the Chesapeake between Maryland and Virginia, and Old Bay Seasoning was well on its way to becoming a legend.
A FLAVOUR ICON
Old Bay's yellow and blue label has become an icon, and its distinct flavour is the ultimate seafood companion. In addition to seafood, it's delicious on everything from chicken, pizza and pasta to corn-on-the-cob, salads and more. True fans of Old Bay reach for it instead of salt and pepper!
