Crazy For Condiments: Special Mayos, Mustards & Sweet Toppers Not To Miss

CAPSULE REPORT: Welcome to our first-ever Top Pick Condiments Roundup. We’ve fallen in love with a few products that have become part of our permanent pantry. In this issue of Top Pick Of The Week, you’ll meet:

Marvelous Mayos

  • Baconnaise
    Enjoy your BLT without the fatty bacon. This mayonnaise  not only tastes like bacon, it’s certified kosher!
  • Spicy Lemonaise
    Three sizzling new siblings from a prior Top Pick Of The Week, The Ojai Cook Lemonaise line. Pick your heat: Cha Cha Chipotle, Fire & Spice (cayenne and cumin) and Green Dragon (wasabi). The line is certified kosher.

Mighty Mustards

  • Boar’s Head Pepperhouse Gourmaise
    The entire NIBBLE staff is addicted to this peppery deli mustard, mayonnaise and horseradish blend.
  • FungusAmongUs Truffle Mustard
    There’s 6% black truffle in this gourmet delight. It’s a wee bit of luxury.

Swell Sweeties

  • Mount Cabot Maple Syrup
    This organic, unblended maple syrup from New Hampshire may start a demand for single-origin maple syrups.
  • Shootflying Hill Salty Butterscotch
    Dessert Sauce

    Like salted caramel candy? Now you can have it in a dessert sauce.
