    I've been in contact with Julie Busha,marketing Director for Slawsa, and she offered to send me a jar of Regular and one of Spicy:


    Just got them delivered via UPS at 6:45 pm tonight and wife immediately opened them up (I couldn't) and we got the caps off, vacuum-sealed:


    First off, some information:

    Nutrition Facts:

    serv. size: 1 tbsp

    per container: 30

    Calories; 15

    Fat: 0

    Total Fat: 0

    Sat. Fat: 0

    Cholest.: 0

    Sodium: 70mg

    Total Carb: 4g

    Fiber: 0

    Sugars: 3g

    Protein: 0

    Smell:  Cabbage, mustard

    Taste:  The smell preps you for a cabbage taste, but - it is complex and sweet, not harsh or acrid!  The cabbage component is there, along with a crisp crunchy texture that makes you smile, and makes you involuntarily dip your spoon in for another and another 'taste-test' as you decipher more ingredients.

    Ingedients:  Cabbage, Sugar, Mustard (Vinegar, Water, Mustard Seed, Salt, Tumeric, Paprika), Green Bell Peppers, Onions, Vinegar, Carrots, Salt, Xanthan Gum, Spices, Yellow No. 5.

    Cholesterol-Free, Fat-Free, Gluten-Free

    The Slawsa Spicy has the same numbers and ingredients, so the added spicy flavor must come from "Spices".  It is a mild spicy; of course, you can add your own to customize, too!

    Overall, it is....

    FANTASTIC!

    Definitely is a great addition to all smoked meats; I just had a cured and smoked turkey sandwich with it on it and it was great!  Didn't take time to Qview it... it... just.... disappeared!

    I would recommend it to everyone!

    Oh, anyone in the Fort Worth area who wants to try it, stop in, be glad to share, this was sent for sampling!

    I agree with Pops on the regular, great stuff! Brats and hotdogs are unreal with Slawsa and it is a great topping on pulled pork pizza... the possibilities are endless!

    Our local grocery store doesn't carry the spicy so we ordered a case last weekend... hope it shows up tomorrow!

    Alesia,

    If yoy go to the Slawsa web site it list all the stores that sells it, don't know if up to date or not!!

  7. Thanks Pops! I'll check it out!! Looks like they skipped over us - can get it in Nebraska, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Texas and way out in California. Thought maybe my son could send me some but not even in Columbus, OH. It'll eventually show up.

    Last night's dinner using Slawsa rather than mustard and relish on my hot dogs:


    They were delicious!  Wonder how soon hot dog vendors and hot dog trucks will be offering it as the preferred topping!  Or, at the ball park?  Or at all the fairs on brats and sausages?  Oh, and the chili was good, too... with a dollop of it in it!
     
  10. Yea Pops I got a mixed case half regular and half spicy that stuff is awesome I like it right out of the jar Really great tasting stuff eat it on anything really good with homemade canadian bacon and eggs  yum yum
