Using bouillon cubes or ready-made seasoning can speed up your dinner prep and add a lot of flavor to your cooking. And when you start thinking outside the bouillon box, there's a lot more than beef and chicken bouillon to be found. Commercial dried seasonings have been popular for well over 100 years, and one of the most well-known pioneers of dried seasonings and bouillon is still going strong today. Knorr seasoning and bouillon is used by millions of people in the United States and around the world and there are so many flavors to try.
In addition to the standard vegetable, beef, and chicken bouillon, Knorr has a whole line of seasoning packets. Here are our favorite Knorr seasoning packets.
French Onion: This Knorr seasoning is one to keep on hand. Not only can you mix up a quick and easy french onion dip, it's a natural flavor component in dishes like
Leek: If you're out of onions or vegetable bouillon, this particular Knorr product is one you can reach for. It adds a mild onion flavor to any savory dish.

Knorr has seasoning packets for different international cuisines, which can help you get inspired in your weeknight cooking.
