People love Trader Joe's, but the popular grocery chain isn't exactly located on every corner. This leaves many of the store's die-hard fans without easy access to trademark items like pickle-flavored popcorn and Maple Leaf Cookies. Some products, however, can be bought through back channels, like the salty, crunchy, and savory "Everything but the Bagel" seasoning, which is on Amazon for just $7.

Though its exact origins are disputed, the everything bagel itself is simply for anyone who wants to get the most out of their meal. That all comes down to the signature blend of sesame seeds, salt, dried garlic, dried onion, black sesame seeds, and poppy seeds that bagel shops around the world use (though each shop might use a different combination of each).

Taking those flavors and putting them in a convenient seasoning blend has proven to be a smash hit for Trader Joe's. A great, simple way to add flavor and texture to every bite of food you eat, the ingenious seasoning is a new must-have pantry item for experimenting with in all your meals. The seasoning has also inspired a line of "Everything but the Bagel" food items at Trader Joe's, including smoked salmon, potato chips, and nuts.

It's more difficult to find things you can't put this magically versatile seasoning on. Use it on top of eggs, avocado toast, or popcorn, or use it in baking and toasting goods like bread, crackers, or (of course) bagels. Best of all, the seasoning is vegan- and gluten-free.
