    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!

    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.
