This made me LOL. Too funny!

Maybe they should have kept Mrs. Dash, and added Mr. Dash - "now with nuts!"
We still get Herbamare and love it!! You can't find it by you?

I saw on Amazon, it is flavored salt. The one I remember had bits of herbs right in it, and little if any salt.

DASH is also the name of a heart healthy diet. Wouldn't hurt to be associated with that.

It's not a new phenomenon. Sambo's Restaurants had to change the name of their location (300+ ??) in the late 70's.
Sambo wasn't even black, he was Indian. An early nod to Political Correctness gone wild.

Mrs. Paul's fish sticks is another brand probably going to change, maybe to Paul's fish sticks? Little debbie cakes will be called something else I am sure.
