Now that got your attention didn't it! A few months ago I visited the Fine Food Fair and whilst it was mostly for trade, one stand stood out to me. It's no secret that I am a little bit obsessed with some American foods but there is one thing that bothers me and that the numbers. You know the preservatives and additives that many products have (not just American, we have them too) which appear on nutritional labels with mysterious numbers. This one stand though had a rather eye catching name in "Bone suckin'" and had a range of sauces. So I samples and sampled and dipped and dipped and then fell in food lust with them .
I also met Patrick who is the fourth generation of the Ford family who had come all the way from North Carolina to bring his sauces here. He's full of gentlemanly Southern charm. He even offered to stow my bags for me which was a godsend given everything that I was carrying-now that's Southern hospitality! His grandmother named it "Bone Suckin'" as she grew up in the Great Depression where they'd love to eat food until you sucked the bones dry and these sauces were so good that they could do that.
The sauces are fat free, gluten free, presevative free, trans fat free, high fructose corn syrup free, MSG free and even Kosher. Among the first customers were Disney world and Harvey Nichols and it is aimed at the gourmet market. The Bone Suckin' sauce was also named the #1 sauce in America by Newsweek and given an A- in health magazine as well as other accolades.
And when I explained about my blog to Patrick, he was so enthusiastic and gave me a box to give a prize to my beloved readers. So for you is this delicious prize winning selection:
1 Jar of Hot Bone Suckin' Sauce
