One of the perks of being a food blogger is the opportunity to try new products just hitting the market. I politely decline most opportunities simply because I just don’t have time. I’m also not too crazy about filling up your feed with commercials. That being said, sometimes a product comes along that I just have to share with you… this is one of them.
When the folks with Whiskey Hollow reached out to me about trying their new line of baked beans I figured I would give them a go since barbecue season is upon us and who can have a barbecue without some baked beans? In my entire life, I have never, NEVER served baked beans straight out of the can. Yes, I’ve always warmed them up, but I’ve also tweaked and added – maybe a little barbecue sauce, some yellow mustard, garlic, bacon… you get the idea. Not only did I serve these straight out of the can, I served them at our Memorial Day barbecue to my staunchest critics – my family. And everyone loved them. Like major loved them; and all I did was warm them up.
I served the Moonshine and Bacon flavor (mainly becasue I think baked beans have to have bacon) and they were delicious. They’re also available in Whiskey Brown Sugar, and Whiskey Dry-Rub. Seriously, there was so much amazing flavor packed in that can. And despite the name, there’s not a heavy alcohol taste like I was expecting. Just tons of rich, bold flavor. These will definitely be a staple this summer at our house.
You can get your own can at select Walmart stores right now. Hurry over to their Facebook page to snag a coupon, too. If you’re looking for a flavor-packed, amazingly easy side for your next barbecue, give these a try… I’m sure you’ll be glad you did.
