I went to Kroger to purchase my free McCormick® Grill Mates® Bottle Blend Seasoning and chose Brown Sugar Bourbon because I enjoy the combo of sweet and spicy BBQ sauce with a little kick. Surprisingly, I was actually able to smell the bourbon and taste the sweetness of the brown sugar. While marinading the meat my sister walked in the kitchen and immediately stated, “I smell alcohol when did you start drinking?” I started laughing and explained she was smelling the McCormick® Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Bottle Blend Seasoning I had chosen to complete my Red, White And Barbecue mission. Once the grilling was done she was first in line to taste.
I thought I had too much food for our family BBQ but everything ended up eaten. Everyone was raving about the ribs and burgers which were a big hit. They were trying to figure out what I had done differently. I let them in on my little secret… McCormick® Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Bottle Blend Seasoning. which I got free for participating in the Red, White And Barbecue mission courtesy of MyMagazine Sharing Network, McCormick and Kroger. They were all excited to try the McCormick blend seasoning theselves so I passed out the free coupons I received. This seasoning is now a staple in my family and friends’ cooking.
Considering I normally mix my own blend of seasonings I really liked the taste of McCormick® Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Bottle Blend Seasoning. It is one of the best prefixed seasoning blends I have tried. I could actually smell the bourbon and taste the sweetness of the brown sugar. Neither over powers the other giving my baby back ribs and burgers awesome flavor and juiciness. Job well done McCormick.
There was only one drawback to using McCormick® Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon Bottle Blend Seasoning was the 2.5–3.5 oz size. It smelled and tasted so good I practically used the whole bottle of seasoning. I would suggest if you are having a BBQ or are cooking for a large crowd this size may not be very economical. This is not a real complaint because it was a free sample. I only mentioned this because I would suggest buying the larger size or multiple of the smaller one. Trust me you won’t regret it.
The size and flavor of the chips were not specified you received either the Lays® Original or Jalapeño Chips. I was hoping for the regular flavor in the larger family or party size to share but received the small single serve size in jalapeno which I didn’t care for. I also received a 1 oz. size bag of Keebler® Chips Deluxe® Mini Rainbow Cookies which were pretty good, and a 24 ct of Kleenex® Wet Wipes which held up and did their job. Last but not least 9 pass-along coupons to share.
Overall, I would recommend McCormick® Grill Mates® Bottle Blend Seasonings, Keebler® Chips Deluxe® Mini Rainbow Cookies, Lays® Potato Chips and Kleenex® Wet Wipes. I was able to try new products and everything was free in exchange for my honest review of products. You will not be disappointed with any of these products.
