Bear-Man Sap-Happy Golden Bear Maple Sauce is the latest stroke of genius from Barry the Bear-Man in upstate New York. This culinary masterpiece is made with pure maple syrup (the first ingredient on the label), and the sweetness is the perfect foil for the spicy ingredients (including jalapenos, ginger and cayenne) and the savory ingredients (including tomato-based chili sauce, soy sauce and mustard). If all of this sounds complicated, it is, but in a very good way! These diverse ingredients come together in a harmonious marriage of layered flavors in Sap Happy Golden Bear Maple Sauce, to create a grilling and cooking sauce that complements meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables. To add further mouth appeal, the sauce has little bits of onion and other fresh ingredients to add textural interest to the thick sauce. The heat level is about a medium, meaning that it's spicy enough to please folks who like hot food but not too fiery for more sensitive tongues. This is a premium gourmet sauce that's complex enough to satisfy sophisticated palates, but also so darn tasty that regular folks and even kids will beg for seconds of anything made with it.
If you love maple syrup, and if you enjoy spicy, rich sauces, you'll be delighted with Sap Happy Golden Bear sauce. I happen to LOVE maple syrup (the real stuff, not fake pancake syrup), so much so that I sometimes sweeten my coffee or tea with it and pour it over ice cream. And I also love spicy foods. So if you're like me, don't be ashamed if you end up taking a swig or two of Sap-Happy Golden Bear Maple Sauce straight from the bottle (yes, I did that). Do I have a drinking problem? Only when it comes to sauces as delicious and satisfying as Bear-Man Sap-Happy Golden Bear Sauce!
