The 9 sauces that make everything better

Do you know that ‘pow!’ flavor in a juicy and meaty burger?

The one that makes you close your eyes as you roll the taste equally across your tongue?

Or that familiar tang in your veggie salad that soothes your heart.

Don’t forget that liveliness created by your dishes that command a “yum” from your audience.

Sauces have always been quite the hero.

They (almost) singlehandedly heighten the flavor in food. Think about it, you can use sauces before you eat food as marinades in your meats and veggies. I like to play around with the final punch by experimenting with various sauces then still add just a dash more whilst gobbling it all up.

At this point, it’s clear we’re hooked on sauces. Let’s get you all the deets so we’re on the same page. Yes, literally.

After reading a god-awesome blog post such as this one, we’re usually tempted to try out the product being recommended.

With supermarkets being the playing ground of brands, we thought we’d make it easier to pick a sauce when a dozen others stare back at you from the shelves.

You’ll find that most of the really good sauces are imported and don’t we just love that sort of thing as Zimbabweans? A foreign sauce, a foreign flavor, amirite? In most instances, yes. But not since Mr. Sauce was launched.

It comes in 9 healthy flavors that you’ll be interested to know are 100% locally-produced. To really make you get an experience of Mr. Sauce we took the liberty to scan all their flavors so that you know specifically which one to try next.

Worcester Sauce

This sauce was the first one we tried and it held that same tangy, salty, and slightly sweet taste we appreciate it for. Excellent when brushed onto meat, fish, or poultry as it is grilled, fried, or baked. Never leave it out of your stir-fry mix.
