Old Bay is the greatest spice on the face of this Earth (beating out salt, pepper, and Cavenders All-Purpose Greek Seasoning). Legend has it that it was developed by the gods as a seasoning for their seafood, but one of them accidentally dropped the can and it landed in Maryland. The Marylanders didn't know what to use it for, and so they tried it on everything and realized that it made the food better by an order of approximately 7.9331 magnitude.

In all seriousness though, Old Bay is Jesus to Marylanders. It tastes amazing on everything from crabs to fries. If you haven't tried it and find a can of it in your local grocery store (unlikely if you live anywhere more than 200 miles from the Chesapeake) and get it. You will not regret it.

The best seasoning on the face of the Earth. Used for crabs, shrimp, fish, vegetables, chicken, french fries and basically anything edible.

If you're not from Maryland you probably don't know what it is.

It's a tasty seasoning if you're in Maryland, but an annoyance if you're anywhere else. If you're in a deli in New York don't ask the guy at the counter if he has any Old Bay for your burger. Everyone in line will think you're a tool.

When you powder up your manhood with some Old Bay right before you catch the bop from a sexy lady, then watch her reaction when she tastes the tasty goodness of Old Bay on your meat. You know shes from MD if she doesnt stop lickin your lollipop.
I caught that bitch by surprise last night when I made her give me an Old Bay Jay, her eyes popped open with pleasure and she went at it like pro all night long.
