Does McCormick bother to read these reviews or taste their own product? I find it hard to believe that anyone who tasted this gravy would put it on the market and continue to try to sell it as a "sausage" gravy, "country" gravy, or even a gravy of any kind. The original was a simple Add Water product and it was perfectly amazing just the way it was. My great-grandmother passed on, to all of us, a love for cooking gravy biscuits and an amazing secret family recipe. However, with the cost of groceries today and being a single mother, it was much cheaper to simply buy a packet of the original McCormick country sausage flavored gravy then to buy all the original ingredients for the recipe and my children were still able to enjoy almost the exact same taste of the recipe my great-grandmother left for all of us. The resemblance was almost uncanny. I have tried doctoring up this new "add milk" recipe in every way possible to make it even taste edible as a gravy, and it's impossible. I'm so disappointed that I can no longer find the original gravy. In the south, food is more then just something you eat. It's memories, time to Fellowship, a passing down of tradition, and sharing a passion for cooking food that warms your soul. I love being able to share these things with my children, and for us, that is waking up one Saturday morning, that Mom actually doesn't have to work, and being able to share our weekly adventures over gravy biscuits. I'm begging McCormick to please bring back the original. Don't change anything that doesn't need to be fixed. I've trusted this company for years as a quick substitute, and any seasonings that I purchase, come from this company, but if they do not share my passion or bother to trust the consumer that is buying their product and listen to their opinions, because we are the people buying and using this product, then I'm not sure I will spend any more money investing in anything that has the name McCormick on it.

Good news, Kristen! Because of consumer feedback like yours, the original Sausage County Gravy Mix was brought back in June. ~Leslie

Watch the dates on these reviews. This used to be a great product until June 2015 when the formula changed. The old product you simply added water to. It had a nice flavor and actually tasted like sausage. This new "just add milk" stuff is disgusting. It has absolutely no sausage flavor and tastes like an over-peppered pepper gravy. UGH! Terrible stuff.

COMPLETELY AGREE! I MISS THE ORIGINAL "JUST ADD WATER" KIND! This new kind doesn't taste like any kind of gravy I've ever had, it's DISGUSTING.

Had 2 packages of this and nothing to do with it, so I browned up 2lb of pork sausage, crumbled it into the gravy and served it over biscuits. It was a perfect mothers day breakfast.

Yes, bring this back please. Same price for the new one but we have to provide the milk? Seems ridiculous unless there is some other reason for doing it like it being better for the consumer, etc. This definitely impacts my view of the McCormick brand and makes me second guess any other purchases of your other products if this was a cost-cutting/profit-margin raising issue.

bring it back, the new one is not as good, and we don't use milk.

Sausage Country Gravy Mix no longer uses 2 cups of water. You now need 2 cups of MILK. I do not have milk on hand usually so I am searching for a new gravy. I hate this because this gravy was the best there was. I use it over my biscuits for breakfast most mornings.

Had this when I was visiting my parents--I thought it was homemade! My mom cooked some sausage and crumbled it into the gravy, it was delicious.
