Black History 2019 Product Celebrations

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
