ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – Seizing on the popularity of everything bagel seasoning with consumers, SeaPak is adding its own version of the savory blend of spices to one of its best-selling seafood items, beginning in September.
The frozen seafood leader will be bringing SeaPak Everything Bagel Butterfly Shrimp to the freezer aisle in a variety of retail locations and grocery chains around the country.
