Review: Bone Suckin' Mustard

I've been on kind of a health kick lately, and with that came a change in the way I shop and where I shop. I've been spending a lot more time at the Whole Foods store and was pumped to find that they not only offer store activities on certain days of the month, but also do routine events with food sampling. There are few things I love when shopping as much as being able to taste-test before I buy. Not only does it help to stave off food cravings (which can cause you to go home with a lot more than you planned to buy) but it can allow you to discover something you never would have purchased on a whim.

The Bone Suckin' Mustard that I found at Whole Foods was exactly one of those items. They were serving it alongside soft pretzel bites (one of my weaknesses) and although I have never been a huge fan of mustard with my pretzels, I went for it.

This mustard is billed as 'sweet-hot', which fits it perfectly. When I first tasted it, I was impressed with the flavor because it was sweet, but it had an underlying zing to it. As it sat on my tongue though, it began to get hot - but not so hot as to lessen the flavor. The balance was perfect between sweet and spicy: my initial reaction would have been to let my toddler eat it, but within seconds the heat kicks in. I love the fact that even though it is a 'hot' mustard, the heat is never so intense that I don't want another bite or feel like my tongue is on fire. Needless to say, I was hooked on this stuff.

Although a decent sized jar of this mustard runs at about $6.79, it has been money well-spent. I didn't really know much about the product or the company before I bought some, and I was thrilled to find that I wasn't the only one that thought this stuff was pretty great - the company has been featured in magazines, won awards, and has even been around for over 20 years!

One of the biggest benefits about this sauce (for me anyhow) is the fact that I can be guilt-free when I feed it to my family. I have a genuine concern about the bad 'extras' that make their way into our foods; so to discover that this sauce is all natural, gluten free, non-GMO and doesn't contain anything like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives was an awesome find for me!

As an added bargain, this mustard is really versatile. I mean, you can put it in pretty much anything to spice up your recipes and everyone will wonder where you got the great flavor from. And a little bit goes a long way - that means that one jar will last you for quite a few meals & recipes. Rarely do I find a condiment that I consider a 'must-have' for the house, but this is an item that we buy more of as soon as we run out now. I see it as a cooking staple, simply because of the multitude of food I now use it in to add flavor. I love that I can kick up my dinners and lunches without having to add lots of salt or unhealthy ingredients.
