I’ve found that people from the Midwest are all real. Huh? What do I mean by that? Well, they tend to be straight-up, honest, with no BS, no hidden agenda, and no accent.
Cookies BBQ Sauce is a product of Iowa and like it’s Midwestern friends, it is also simple, straight-up, and no BS.
But I guess I’ve become a bit desensitized to the ordinary… and I prefer an accent sometimes (a new spice or flavor) and I sometimes like a little bit of a hidden agenda… (surprise bit of heat or a flavor that only activates when the sauce meets fire).
So although the lack of differentiation prevents me from giving it a 5, it’s still a very tasty and smokey BBQ sauce flavor. The initial flavor I get when it hit my tongue is the dark sweet flavor of molasses, followed by a powerful liquid smoke flavor, ending with a salty tang provided by Worcestershire sauce. Yum.
One nice surprise is that is can be added to my popular Gluten-free BBQ sauce list.
Consistency is a bit on the thin side and had limited specks and homemade sauce appeal but stuck to meat well and tasted great throughout the process.
Bottom Line (4/5)
A populist’s BBQ sauce, a safe smokey sweet choice. I think most of America LOVES this kind of sauce. It’s right in the middle of two really popular ones. I think it’s like Sweet Baby Rays but thinner and not anywhere near as sweet. And it’s kinda like Kraft Original BBQ sauce, but tastier. My daughter for one, couldn’t stop scooping this stuff onto her grilled cheese…
The Original flavor is the sauce that put Cookies on the map, but for folks who like a little variety in their BBQ Sauce, they also offer three other sauce flavors including Sweet Hickory, Western and Country Blend.
