Walkerswood Update

First, the good news: Rumor (from our suppliers) has it that there's a container waiting to be cleared at U.S. customs with more Walkerswood products from Jamaica, and that we might very well have the Walkerswood Marinade and Jonkanoo Pepper Sauce back in stock around the end of the month. And we still have a few of the 10oz jars of Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning in stock, as do both of our major suppliers, so we don't currently anticipate shortages of that authentic jerk seasoning paste.

Now for the bad news: A vigilant customer told me today that there's a Walkerswood rescue underway, to try to bail out the struggling manufacturer. This confirms the rumors I've been hearing for years about the many problems -- both business and weather related -- that have been plaguing the Walkerswood company. Hopefully everything will work out and production will become more reliable, but there sure does seem to be an awful lot of uncertainty in the air about the future of the Walkerswood brand. Rest assured that we'll continue doing all we can to keep Walkerswood products in stock at the Carolina Sauce Company, and I'll keep an eye out for more information. If and when we're able to re-stock the marinade, Jonkanoo sauce or the Walkerswood Hot & Spicy Jerk Sauce, we'll do so right away and announce it here.

Zestfully yours,
