Lawry's Roasted Garlic Salt was simply the best spice I've ever had. And had I known it was discontinued I would've bought a few cases.
If you're familiar with it can you recommend something similar.

We know that:
The ingredients are in order of weight:
and that means the content of salt is highest, then sugar, then starch, ... until the carrot extract.
"Natural flavor" and "carrot extract" are really hard to find and are the ingredients with the least amount of weight in this recipe so I'll leave them out of this for the moment.
If we would mix 5 teaspoons of the above ingredients we'd come to a total of 0.8795g, which is too low so let's increase the cheapest and heaviest ingredient:
That leaves you to play with 0.01g of natural flavor and carrot extract to get it just right, but the above should be 99% correct.
I am also looking to replace the Roasted Garlic salt from Lawry's. The flavor was perfect and just a little dash or two enhanced the flavor of so many things.
As an experiment, I tried blending one part 'Lawry's Seasoned Salt' to one part 'McCormicks Roasted Garlic' (something I bought looking for an alternative) in a small shaker. I compared the two (yes, I have about 1/2 inch left in my last bottle of 'Lawry's Roasted Garlic Salt'!) and it isn’t too bad. I put a little bit on boiled potatoes and it is by far the closest thing I have found to date.
I will be experimenting further in the future hoping to make it a closer match.
