Tried and Tasted!

A selection of foodie nibbles for November.

Jack Daniel's Barbecue Sauces

I know the BBQ season has disappeared without a trace, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy these sauces from Jack Daniels®. They are made using real Jack Daniel's® Tennessee Whisky, which comes directly from the distillery in Lynchburg.
I tried the 'Full Flavour Smokey' - which had a rather nice warm hickory flavour, and the 'Hot Pepper' sauce - a delicious bbq sauce that has been blended with jalapenos for a spicy kick.

Both the sauces can be used as dipping sauces, or try brushing them over vegetables and meats before cooking. The 'Full Flavour Smokey' is probably the bbq sauce I would go out and buy, as we all enjoyed it and it's not too hot for children either.

The sauces can be found in most of the major supermarkets and sell from £1.99.
More information on the sauces can be found on the Jack Daniel's website.

Unearthed New Products

I was pleased to see that Unearthed® have had a large product launch, 28 new lines which formed part of their Autumn Bay promotion. The range includes meats & sausages, olives & antipasti, special reserve range, seafood and twin dip packs. I tried:
  • 'Prosciutto del Poggio' - a dry cured ham with an intense flavour, rather fabulous on pizza.
  • 'Olives & Gouda' - pimento stuffed green olives with cubes of Gouda cheese. We all liked the cumin seeds and thought the flavour went really well with the cheese. It comes with a lid to keep any leftovers fresh.
  • 'Broadbean Houmous & Quinoa Houmous' - a twin pack of dips that complement each other. You can serve straight from the smart black plastic containers. The quinoa houmous had a generous helping of black olive tapenade, and (our favourite) the broad bean dip had a lovely taste of sesame and garlic.

Madame Oiseau

Madame Oiseau chocolate chillies IMG_7458 R

I had a little gift given to me recently. My sister spotted these chocolate covered chillies and was kind enough to get me some. The chillies have been cut into strips and look like they have been given the sugar treatment that results in a candied/crystallised chilli (much like a candied orange peel). Then they have been dipped in dark chocolate - chilli and chocolate - wow! There's this warm glow that you get after eating one, not overpowering at all, just leaves you with a very happy mouth!

Thanks for all the products I was sent. I was not paid to write this post and all views expressed above are my own.
