Just look at that label. Look at it. As people who once lived in Kentucky – although, who were not very good Kentuckians – we felt it was our duty to bring this home, cook some barbecue, and then (my favorite part) complain about it.
The sauce did not disappoint. Oh, was it awful. The first taste was almost spice (chipotle is listed as one of the first ingredients), but that quickly fades away to…nothing. No spice, not even a little ketchup’y. The one thing about the label that is one hundred percent true: Hergestellt in Deutschland.
Coincidentally, I recently stumbled upon a display of goods from the Southern United States Trade Association (whew) at KaDeWe. I’m sure that’s what first put barbecue on my mind, but I have no idea why I didn’t pick up a bottle there. It was even less expensive, which is not something one gets to say about KaDeWe often.
