Tropical Sun Jerk Seasoning Review

I am a great lover of Jamaican Jerk Chicken and it is one of my husband’s favourite dishes. Recently our usual jerk spice has become impossible to find so I have been on the search for substitutes. I came across this Tropical Sun Jerk Seasoning and decided to give it a try.

The Jamaica Sun jerk seasoning is closely based on the original recipe and I was interested to see how much it would differ from the normal seasoning I use.  The instructions advise that 1 tbsp is used per 500g meat.  It is just meant to be rubbed onto the skin and then the chicken can be barbecued or grilled.

This jerk seasoning packs a very fiery punch, it has a really hot taste and it really made my eyes water. Having said that it was nice but next time I use it I will use a lot less. If you are a fan of really spicy food this one is for you, otherwise use it sparingly.

Disclosure: I found this in the supermarket and decided to review it because I felt like it.

  1. It’s always hard to know how spicy things are going to turn out when you change brands. Curry sauces are the same – “medium” can be anything from really mild to red hot !
