Maybe it is the retro styling of the bottles or the names of the sauces, but when I clap eyes on these at the supermarket, I know I have to get them. They are perfect with grilled sausages or as a dip for fat chips.
Sweet Curry Sauce is exactly as the name implies. Sugar and plum puree are the dominant ingredients and supplying the curry vibe is coriander, turmeric and cumin. Naturally, the cumin is front and centre, but that is not such a bad thing.
Eat this alongside grilled sausages and caramelised onions or use as a marinade for pork chops before they go onto the barbecue.
The Tomato & Habanero Chilli Sauce is made for people who need to have both ketchup and chilli sauce with their chips. Take the habanero tag with a big pinch of salt - it is not blow-your-head-off spicy.
Instead, there is a pleasant tingle of spice in the midst of fresh tomato sauce. I would simply drag a pile of chips through the sauce, but you might want to add some to homemade barbecue sauce or to a pot of beef chilli.
