Newsflash: Sadly, a zesty era has come to an end: I've recently been told by our supplier that Vernon's Jamaican Hot & Spicy Jerk Sauce is no longer available and that the manufacturer has gone out of business. Vernon's was one of the pioneers who introduced the exotically delicious and spicy flavors of Jamaican cuisine to the general American public after moving here from Jamaica. His thick, rich jerk sauce was all-natural and packed with authentic island flavor. I don't know why the business closed -- perhaps it was simply time to move on -- but one thing I do know is that Vernon's delicious jerk sauce will be missed at the Carolina Sauce Company and by faithful customers.
Thankfully, there are other good Jamaican jerk sauces available on the market, including all-natural ones like Pluto's Certified Organic Jamaican Jerk Sauces. If you miss Vernon's and haven't yet tried Pluto's, I recommend all 3 sauces he makes, as well as Pluto's Caribbean Bliss Spice Blends.
