Braswell's is the only company to have two products selected in this prestigious competition.
The Braswell's Select Smoky Chipotle Mustard is an intense premium mustard that is boldly infused with a perfect blend of chipotle peppers, horseradish and white wine. The product was developed in 2011 and immediately caught the attention of the gourmet food world, winning a prestigious NASFT Fancy Food Show Finalist award for Outstanding Condiment. Professional chefs and amateur flavor enthusiasts use this piquant mustard in everything from chicken salad, deli sandwiches and as an accompaniment to crab cakes, pork tenderloin or roast beef. Braswell's Select Smoky Chipotle Mustard is beautifully packaged in reusable European drink ware that customers can use over and over again. It's delicious, elegant and earth-friendly!
Braswell's Apple Cinnamon BBQ Sauce is a heavenly combination of premium apple cider vinegar, warm cinnamon and just the right touch of smoke flavor. This unique combination of flavors makes this sauce a wonderful complement to chicken, pork and seafood. Many chefs use Braswell's Apple Cinnamon BBQ Sauce as their "secret ingredient" for unbelievable baked beans and it can also be used as a dipping sauce.
"We are flattered to be a finalist in two categories of the 2012 Flavor of Georgia Food Contest. Georgia is known throughout the world for its' amazing culinary traditions and to have our products recognized for excellence by this esteemed panel of food experts is quite an honor," says Braswell Food Company president Andrew Oliver.
