Whenever I have two brands of the same type of product in my refrigerator cupboard, I like to compare the items, then write a consumer product comparison review of the two products. Such is the case with two brands of barbecue sauce that are currently in my refrigerator.
One of the brands is Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce, which my Father gave to me and the other is Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce, which a close and special female friend gave to me. After utilizing these products with a variety of foods, I found that both products offer distinct flavors and are quite adaptable. Each of these products is reasonably – priced and they are both available at supermarkets and other food retailers everywhere. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product comparison review of Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce and Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce.
The net weight of the Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce is is 21.6 ounces. The net weight of the Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce is 18 ounces. According to the product labels, the Hunt’s barbecue sauce contains about 17 2 – tablespoon servings, while the Kraft barbecue sauce contains approximately 14 servings.
Both the Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce and the Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce arepackaged in heavy – duty plastic bottles that feature easy – open and close twist – tops. Both containers are fairly narrow, allowing for minimal use of space in the refrigerator, once they are opened.
These two brands of barbecue sauce are quite versatile and produce excellent results with a wide variety of food items. Both the Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce and the Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce are very effective when it comes to grilling, broiling and baking. Some of the foods that I have used these barbecue sauces on or with are chicken, steak, pork chops and hamburger. Both sauces are effective whether cooking indoors or outdoors, although I find that the Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce seems to cling to food somewhat better than the Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce.
Taste / Flavor
Both the Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce and the Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce offer bold and satisfying flavors. To me, the Kraft variety features a more traditional, basic taste, while the Hunt’s sauce seems to offer a slightly bolder and more dynamic flavor that tastes a little smokier to me. I must say, I was very surprised by how delicious the Hunt’s Barbecue Sauce is. While I know that Hunt’s produces a large selection of other top – quality tomato products, their barbecue sauce is also top – rate. To me, the Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce offers a deeper, more interesting flavor than it’s Kraft counterpart. Not to downgrade the Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce. It too, is quite tasty.
