Product Review: Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery Gets...Saucy?

When I got the offer to try out a line of sauces from the Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery chain, I was more than slightly nervous. While I love sauces, I believe I have a perfectly normal impression of Golden Krust: Though I've never been there to eat, the too-sunny, outdated yellow awning and the pre-outdated logo with a tacky "K" in "Krust" have always turned me off. I'm most certainly not alone in this opinion, as everyone I asked felt the same way. The identically poorly-designed labels on my sauces gave me even less hope. Still, a very lovely representative from GK's PR firm asked my to try them, and the ETR team thought they deserved a chance. The result? We were pleasantly surprised!Four brand-new sauces from the Jamaican-Caribbean chain Golden Krust

I was sent all four of Golden Krust's new sauces: Island Flavored Ketchup, Jamaican Style Jerk Sauce, Honey Barbeque Jerk Sauce, and Hot Pepper Sauce. They were all full of flavor, and a couple presented tastes I haven't...well, tasted in a sauce before. Aside from the most obvious uses, I found that several worked well in surprising settings: The Jamaican Style Jerk Sauce, for example, worked as a lovely dipping sauce for maple-roasted squash--a dish I thought the Honey Barbecue Jerk Sauce would be fitting for. The Island Flavored Ketchup was great as a dipping sauce or or something more standard, like breaded chicken cutlets. I even made a Hot Pepper and Honey BBQ mayo A tangy Hot Pepper-Jerk aioli and friesaioli for fries, and it was quite unusual, my friends. If you're looking for a hot sauce that adds a little texture and a lot of bright flavor, then I'd definitely recommend the pink-hued Hot Pepper Sauce. Though you won't get the flavor in the first second, the second second will have you feeling a wild heat travel down your throat, and boy will you get the flavor then! I love spicy foods, and this sauce absolutely didn't let me down like most Americanized hot sauces do. You won't confuse this one with the ol' Goya Salsita!

Did these sauces blow my mind? No, but they're actually quite delicious. Low in calories (though high in sugar, as with similar sauces), they're a sweet and tangy addition to many dishes with their additions of mango puree and scotch bonnet pepper. I wouldn't expect any affordable chain business to make a sauce that tasted as if it just came from a Grilled breaded chicken strips with Island Flavored Ketchupsmall-batch saucier in Maine, so I was more than pleased. And better still is that my eyes have been opened to a new store. Despite the garish yellow, I look forward to stepping into the next Golden Krust I pass.

Each 8-oz. bottled sauce can probably be found at local stores and in some local Shop-Rites and Pathmarks. Do NOT call the 718 number given on the website, as this transfers you only to the wholesale business, which won't get you anywhere. I'd assume the sauces would be very affordably priced.

I fell in love with the Hot Pepper Sauce especially since it has ZERO sodium which is hard to find in a condiment
