In the world of flavors, there exists a culinary symphony that harmonizes the best of savory, salty, and herbaceous notes into a delightful crescendo of taste. We call it "Everything" flavor, and it's the embodiment of versatility—a medley of roasted garlic, toasted sesame seeds, fragrant onion flakes, and the subtle crunch of poppy seeds. This symphony of ingredients, often associated with the beloved "everything bagel," has transcended its humble origins to become a culinary sensation in its own right. So join us on a journey through this labyrinth of flavors, where every bite is a delightful adventure into the unexpected and the unforgettable, while we take a look and see what’s in this month’s box.
