BBQ Sauce rant

I like spicy food. I like sweet stuff as well. But the two do not belong together. It would be like if Eminem appeared on Sesame Street. (“Ok kids, what does “F” stand for?”)

I don’t buy barbecue sauce much any more for that reason. I just bought a bottle of Hot and Spicy KC Masterpiece. The letters outlined in red led me to believe that this would be exceptionally spicy. But it actually tasted more sweet than anything else. After checking the label (which I should have done in the first place), I found that a 35 gram serving contains 9 grams of sugar. More than a forth of the bottle’s contents is sugar! I might as well put Tabasco sauce on some Frosted Flakes for the same flavor.

    You might be onto something w/ that hot sauce on frosted flakes.
    Now I wont tell if you won't, but I haven't seen anything like that on ANY store shelves.

    Now's the chance to make that FIRST MILLION, eh?
