    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.

    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??

    Loved this. I try to avoid gluten and dairy, so I tweaked a few of the ingredients obviously. I used a vegan alfredo sauce and some gluten free penne. It was VERY good. Definitely making again! I know even with the vegan sauce it's not completely dairy free, but a little bit doesn't hurt :) Will definitely be buying more of these flavor packets!

    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?

    This is a great to serve to your family or to a crowd! I always double this recipe so I can have leftovers because it's a great hit in our house. I do add more cream to it to make it a bit creamier. For the picky eaters of not wanting tomatoes, I use the jarred charred red peppers, which everyone loves the flavor of!
