OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After nearly 100 years of bringing people together around the charcoal grill for great tasting food, Kingsford® is proud to introduce its first line of BBQ sauce.
Kingsford's first batch of BBQ Sauces is made with only real ingredients – like real brown sugar, real jalapeño and real hickory smoke – and does not contain any artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. The three new BBQ sauces offer grilling enthusiasts a premium taste to fit a wide range of flavor palates, and help fuel an authentic, mouth-watering and finger-licking barbecue experience.
"Kingsford's fans are our backbone, and through their feedback, we identified BBQ sauces as a great opportunity for us to expand our offerings," said Kingsford associate director of brand marketing, Nishita Vakil. "Kingsford has been fueling America's grills for nearly a century, so nobody knows barbecue better than we do. Our new sauces offer the high-quality flavor that Kingsford is known for, and are specifically formulated with real ingredients to enhance, not mask, the taste of grilled meat."
Kingsford Sauces are available in three smoky varieties — Original Smoked Hickory, Honey Jalapeño Mesquite and Brown Sugar Applewood. All three sauces feature rich and complex layers of sweetness and spices.
The new Kingsford BBQ Sauces are currently available in grocery stores nationwide for $2.99. For more information on Kingsford's BBQ Sauces and where to buy them, visit Kingsford.com/Sauces.
