Happy Black History Month! I’m sharing some of my favorite Black-owned products that will cure your winter blues.
G Hughes Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce, Hickory
This condiment contains all the elements of a delicious BBQ sauce. The smooth tomato base features a subtle tang from the vinegar. The smokiness gives it a straight-from-the-grill taste. The hint of sweetness comes from the sucralose – a sugar substitute – without leaving an aftertaste. Finger-licking delicious!
Retail price: $3.99
Size: 18 oz.
Available: Kroger, Target and other grocery stores nationwide
Rum Island Punch Tropical Paradise
This alcoholic beverage lives up to its name. It packs a pineapple flavor reminiscent of a Bahamian cocktail. The pronounced rum pleases the palate and warms the soul like a good, fruity drink should. I’m digging it!
Retail price: $23.99
Size: 750 ml
Dream Cakes New Orleans Pralines, Original
This chewy confectionary contains fresh pecans with a smooth caramel texture. The creamy goodness melts in the mouth and satisfies a sweet tooth. It brings joy to the entire family when the craving hits. Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll)

Kewi Tea Passion Punch
This sensational herbal tea awakens the aromatic loose leaves when brewed. The fruit blend adds a rich berry flavor with a tart, but not a pucker-worthy, aftertaste. The delightful punch brings back memories of the red drink without all the syrupiness and caffeine. Sip, Sip hooray!
Retail price: $10
Size: 2 oz.
Sweeet Heat Spicy Homey Honey
Lip-smacking good! This savory barbecue sauce serves up a harmonious sweetness and kick – reminding me of a backyard cookout. The brown sugar dances on the tongue, but the garlic steals the show. The thick lusciousness pairs well with jumbo, angus beef franks. Bon Appétit!
