Tony Chachere's is hoping to strike condiment gold, again. The company knows you use their Creole seasoning to replace salt, pepper and other spicier ingredients.

But, like the Schwegmann’s and K&B Drug Stores that stocked the games, they trickled away in the early 1990s. By the mid-90s, they weren’t available in the retail world at all.
Turducken! The very name of the mystical bird(s) inspires fantastical tales as if it were a unicorn or a ten pound crawfish. Louisiana’s own specialty dish that combines turkey, duck and chicken, is no myth. Nevertheless, plenty of stories swirl about the famed protein powerhouse.
