CBDBQ

Hey folks, last week we saw a fantastic szechuan-style sauce, marred by a name that paid homage to a particularly crass joke. So, today, we’re going to keep things rather classier, with what is easily the most fancily packaged product that I’ve ever featured:

Both are going to be at least a little stronger than your average thai sweet sauce but their unorthodox chilli choices also bring a unique flavour and appearance to the table.
