Old Bay has been around longer than I have. It's great for Seafood, Poultry, Salads, and Meats.
Zatarain's has been around forever also, since 1889! It is a staple for New Orleans type seafood boils! It gives it that extra spice I absolutely love.
Zatarain's has simple ingredients: Mustard Seed, Corinader Seed, Cayenne Pepper, Bay Leaves, Dill Seed, Allspice in a boil in bag ready to toss in a pot and cook your crabs, craw fish, lobster or anything else you desire!
Old Bay's ingredients: Celery Salt, Mustard, Red Peppers, Black Pepper, Bay Leaves, Cloves, Allspice, Ginger, Mace, Cardamom, Cinnamon and Paprika.
Old Bay is even great in Bloody Mary's.
