This is a hideous sauce.
There’s so much wrong with this sauce, it’s hard to begin. A noxious taste is still in my mouth, like a mud pie – but worse. I’d rather eat dirt than this stinky, synthetic blend of cheap ingredients. I’d rather drink oil (not car oil, more like olive oil which isn’t so bad…) 🙂
I bought it simply because I wanted to buy something really cheap to explore the most affordable options at my local supermarket, hoping to be surprised at what you can get for $1.79… and maybe combat the myth that all of these mass produced products aren’t so bad… but I was wrong.
Let’s get into it, one by one.
It smells like a strong household cleaner or grease for some industrial machine. It smells like it could hurt you… not even a trace of real food smells here, folks.
Before Cooking Flavor
After the smell, I was hesitant to go further. But I proceeded onward, and dipped in some unsalted crackers to get the true flavor. Yup. Tasted just like it smelled, with an odd thickness and unnatural sweetness.
A very weird unnatural color… it looked like sludge!
It pours slow, so slow, you have to wonder what those chemicals will do to your stomach and insides as it passes through…
After Cooking Flavor
Still disgusting. Thank heavens I only ruined two tiny pieces of chicken for this.
