    I emailed and asked why I can't find these in the store anymore and the person that emailed back said mccormick has not discontinued these and that they should be available. However, people at walmart have told me that walmart is not carrying them anymore which is terrible because these were wonderful and I cannot find them at ANY other store, I've literally check all in my area. McCormick: you can clearly see by all the comments that you have some unhappy customers due to not being able to purchase something in high demand, make it available online or at least post a recipe for substitutions.

    This is one of the easiest, quickest and most delicious recipe packets out there. My older son even requested this meal while he is home from college for Christmas break. Unfortunately, as others have commented below, I can't find it anywhere. I used to buy a dozen packets at a time from Walmart and give them to family/friends to try (who are also now looking for it), but now there isn't even a place on the shelf for the product and the new product isn't nearly as good. Please bring this back!

    We absolutely love this in our house. The only problem is where we live they are taking all the McCormick Gourmet Seasonings off the shelves. I can no longer find this product in our town? Why is that? Are these getting discontinued?

    Was glad to find this recipe as I have been searching forever for the spice mix for it. So sad to hear it is discontinued. Unfortunately, when I view this recipe and print it out, the names of the spices are missing from the print out only the measurements show up on line, shopping list and print out. Could you please list the spices necessary for the recipe and measurements. Thank you soo much! You made my day just finding this recipe : )

    I am very disappointed that the Chicken Penne seasoning mix is discontinued, the recipe below is too much trouble. The whole point of the packets is to make the meal a quick one, if I have to mix all these spices it will be very time consuming. Please bring back the Chicken Penne seasoning mix!! This is our family's favorite recipe!

    Our family's favorite dish and that's saying something! Having 6 people ranging from 5yo to 45yo this is not an easy feat. So I have to ask, WHERE do we find it now??? We've loved it for years and for the last 2 years it has not been available at Walmart (looked throughout Texas, Upstate New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Utah, HEB (in Texas), Albertson's, and Price Choppers (Upstate New York). Walmart's manager said they don't carry it anymore. Has this been discontinued, or can you direct your loyal customers on where we can purchase them online?? - Felder Family

    McCormick - If this product is not coming back, would you please release the recipe so that we can buy McCormick spices and make it ourselves? It's heartbreaking that something so good is gone. This recipe means a lot to our family. It became a staple and I literally made 1-2 double batches a week (I have teenagers.) One reason for possible poor sales is product placement - especially at the Walmart stores. It wasn't with the other McCormick packets (like the beef stew mix, the gravy mixes, etc...) It wasn't in with the seasonings and spices, they had it in it's own random place by itself.

    This product line is incredible!! Love this stuff! However McCormick - Are you listening??? WE CANT Find the product!! Major grocers are either pulling product or putting it on clearance. Been to at least 4 major grocers here in SC and all of them, product is either non existent or one or two varieties left till their gone. Perhaps a distributor problem? Can we order from McCormick or an online source perhaps??

    Seriously McCormick? Do you have any idea how popular this seasoning packet was with all the moms out there? This was one of my husband's favorite dishes and one of the only pasta dishes my picky 7 year old would eat. I don't have time to re-create this dish without the packet. Why wouldn't you bring this back? It doesn't make any sense? Finding out this was discontinued totally ruined my day but at least I can stop searching for it.......

    My roommate and I loved this. I am so making this for my family, but with the shrimp instead of the chicken. Hopefully it is just as good with the shrimp as it was with the chicken.
