Thanks for your feedback shantihhh, I am sorry to hear the sauce was too sweet for you. We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback thus far regarding our sauces taste and ease of preparation. This would probably explain why we are in the media monthly. I hope you don't mind if I copy and paste this comment to respond to the continual post above that you have posted on our other videos. Thanks!
