Royal Fireworks Original BBQ Sauce (4/5)


According to Wikipedia, the Music for the Royal Fireworks is a wind band suite composed by George Frideric Handel in 1749 under contract of George II of Great Britain for the fireworks in London’s Green Park on 27 April 1749. It was to celebrate the end of the War of the Austrian Succession and the signing of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748.  OK?   But this has absolutely nothing to do with BBQ sauce.

This sauce is also called Royal Fireworks and it has little to do with music.  This sauce company is a small business based in Ohio run by owner and author Susan Duve.  I received three sauces to review along with a fine book of creative recipes of what to do with her sauce.  I cooked them up up at the same time as shown below:

Let’s take a look at the Original Royal Fireworks sauce first which markets itself as an all natural, spicy sweet explosion that is good for grilling, dipping, and more.


  • High quality label – very clean appearance and pro quality
  • High quality ingredients – salsa, pineapple, vegetarian, and gluten-free
  • Good, unique flavor – you really taste the pineapple and salsa
  • Good consistency – nice mouth feel with the chunky salsa
  • Not too sweet


  • Surprise pineapple flavor
  • Label is a bit generic and doesn’t pop off the shelf – doesn’t describe the taste well or jump off the shelf

Bottom line:

Great sauce for anyone with a penchant for pineapple infused sauces.  It’s a nice flavor, but I tend to like these sauces in moderation and starting to see a lot of them out there.  I’d like to see a mention of pineapple on the front somewhere.
