Trying to make you enjoy barbecue sauce as much as we do

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

This evening, we organised a death match between 3 sauces you can find in junk food restaurants in Belgium: 

#1: McDonalds barbecue sauce

#2: Quick barbecue sauce

Quick barbecue sauce 
#3: Hector Chicken barbecue sauce

Hector Chicken barbecue sauce
They fought bravely against each other, a gang of homemade nuggets playing the sheriffs.

Homemade Nuggets
And the winner is *drum roll*, McDonalds barbecue sauce !

Why that ? 

The Hector Chicken smells like an ashtray and tastes like a juice made out of old socks. Ugh !

The Quick one is made by the same company as the Hector one, Gyma, but it’s not the same; and even if it’s not as disgusting, it smells the vinegar too much and tastes nothing but sour.

In comparison, the McDonalds one has a good smokey and sweet smell, a great colour and a really sweet taste and it has the best packaging amongst the three: simple, clean, nice color and shiny helvetica bold. Too bad they don’t sell it in bottles, we would definitely buy some !

Watch out for more death matchs ! Maybe against Dominoes Pizza barbecue sauce or Burger King barbecue sauce. By the way, the best bbq sauce we’ve tasted so far was in Burger King in Nyugati tér station in Budapest Wink
