Inspired by the distinctive everything bagel seasoning that can be found on the comforting baked good, Trader Joe's created the 'Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend.'
True to its name, the blend of spices and seasonings includes poppy seeds, sea salt flakes, sesame seeds, as well as dried garlic and onion. Although this combination of savory, roasted flavors can most often be found on an everything bagel, Trader Joe's is hoping to make it easier for consumers to enjoy the seasoning on everything from buttered popcorn to salads, dips and pizza dough.
The unique combination of flavors that can be found on an everything bagel have now been recreated by food brands in the form of everything from ice cream and donuts to cheese spreads and potato chip snacks.
