I went to Bosch Dist. in Rosedale and they are no longer there. I called Harbor Spice in Fallston, they told me that their version of JO spice is just about the same as the orginal. Since I like JO, can anyone confirm that they taste the same?

Boesch moved/merged with another company in Glen Burnie. You can buy the real deal JO at thier place in Woodlawn. They got all kinds of spices as well as the pretzel salt rj recommends.

Harbor spice make seasoning for just about every crabhouse and bar in the area. I have never had original JO but have gotten Harbor spice's version. It's very good in my opinion. The down side is you gotta buy 50 lbs.
They are in Forest Hill not Fallston

I have a 50 # box of Ross' Crab seasoning made by Harbor Spice Co. that is available for $30.00. First come first serve. Split it with a friend if you can't use 50#s.[wink].

I bought a 25lb box of JO #2 (Crab Steaming Seasoning with salt already mixed-in) at the JO Spice outlet on Green Spring off of ALT 1A which is just off of I695. Theyhave 5, 10, 25 & 50lb boxes. I paid $41.00 to the 25lb box.

Harbor Spice in Forrest Hill is a great place to get seasoning. They make over 100 hundred different blends. If there is a local crab house that you like, the chances are good that they make the blend for them. The cost of his 50 lb box is about $58.

I usually buy mine form Annapolis Seafood on Forest Dr in Annapolis. If it's not the original #2 than it's one hellava good reproduction.
