At long last, Castle Sauce from Thomas Gourmet Foods is available again at the Carolina Sauce Company! This is the same recipe perfected recently when the last "missing ingredient" was discovered, and it's a dead ringer in taste for the old original sauce that was bottled in Greensboro until 1997--and that's not just my opinion (which, by the way, is based on my regular consumption of the old original back in the '80s in Winston-Salem, plus the 2 bottles I have left from the final bottling in 1997), but it's also the overwhelming customer feedback we've received since the 2010 version was released.
If you've never tried Castle Sauce, you'll be in for a treat. This is the ideal all-purpose condiment for burgers, steaks, onion rings, fries, popcorn shrimp, hot dogs, sandwiches, meatloaf, baked beans and even fried chicken or fish. The tangy mustard-tomato flavor has a zippy finish, and the thick consistency means that the sauce will stick to your food instead of dripping off or making a mess. Castle Sauce has a devoted following among folks who remember the old original, and it's not uncommon for three generations of families to enjoy it--yes, it's kid-friendly, and a favorite for dunking chicken nuggets or french fries.
Here's a hearty thank you to everyone who's been patiently waiting since our re-opening for their Castle Sauce "fix" - we really appreciate your patience! And if you're looking for a coupon to save some money when you buy Castle Sauce, you'll find two different coupons available in the August issue of the Carolina Sauce Newsletter.
