Bell's On!

A blend for all types, Bell's Seasoning celebrates 150 years


Although it’s described as a blend for all types of meat and fish, Bell’s Seasoning is specifically linked with Thanksgiving in the memories of many. Founded by William G. Bell three years after Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday, the mixture has not changed since it was created in Quincy Market Place in 1867 with spices originally milled in the North End and sold in a can. As the company marks a big anniversary, we rang up some other numbers on Bell’s.
