This is my favourite brand and flavour of BBQ sauce, which I usually buy on special offer for £1. It is available in all the major supermarkets and can be found within the condiments aisle.
The bottle is easily distinguishable, with a clear brand logo and clever 'woodsmoke' style labelling. The sauce itself contains tomatoes, glucose-fructose syrup, spirit vinegar, molasses, sugar, modified maize starch, honey (3%), salt, flavourings, spices and sulphates. A typical 20g serving is 25 calories. Personally I find this sauce so delicious that I use a lot more than this!
The sauce can also be used as a baste / marinade during the last 5-10 minutes of grilling.
You do need to remove the foil underneath the cap before first use and HP recommend keeping it in the fridge for up to 12 weeks. This product never lasts that long in my household, and I don't like cold BBQ sauce! I find that the vinegar preserves it for about a month in the storecupboard which is long enough for me!
It is a perfect accompaniment to fun foods like pizza or chicken dippers. I find the taste lightly tangy but very rich. The honey and the authentic wood smoking process add moreish depth.
For me, this is the best BBQ sauce product on the market. This is because of its flavour, texture, value for money, eye-catching packaging and availability. I've tried other brands but they just don't compare.
I came across this barbeque sauce last week in asda when it was on offer for £1. I usually associate hp with expensive products and I always go for supermarket own brands, but as it was on offer I thought it was a bit different with the added honey in it, so I thought id give it a go!
I didn't think barbeque sauce and honey would go together, but I was wrong, this sauce is absolutely gorgeous! I don't like strong barbeque sauces, so this is great as its only a mild flavour. It does have a lot of taste, it is not bland just because it is mild, it just isn't as spicy, which can be a bad thing because you can just eat as much of this as you want!
It's a nice barbeque flavour, and you can taste the honey in it slightly, it makes it sweet, but its not too much. It really goes well with the barbeque flavour. I love the consistency of this sauce, it is not thick at all. Some people might think it is a bit too runny, when you squirt some on your plate it just spreads as it is not thick enough to stay put, but I like it that way. Because it is so runny this comes out of the bottle so easily, I always find myself pouring way too much on the plate, and then you get a lot wasted if you can't eat it all.
You need to shake the bottle well before you open it, and be very careful not to squeeze it too hard when it is full, or you will end up with way more than you wanted. Once opened, you need to consume this bottle within 8 weeks, but as we only bought it last week and nearly half a bottle is gone already, this wont be a problem for us!
We have been having it with everything, our favourite is with potatoes or chicken. You can use this as a sauce on the side or you can actually use it to flavour your meat. Whilst you are grilling chicken for example, you can brush a layer of this sauce on in the last 10 minutes of cooking for tastier chicken! We tried this last night, and it was gorgeous!
Per 20ml serving there is 25 calories, but as nobody measures sauce I don't know how bad that is for you!
I highly recommend this sauce for its delicious flavour, it goes with so many meals, ill be buying it again when it runs out, even if it isn't on offer!
This is mine and my husbands favourite barbecue sauce. It has such a great taste.
We buy ours from sainsburys and it costs £1.46 for 430g, I guess it probably differs between stores. It comes in a really handy squeezy bottle. There are a few barbecue sauces in the Hp range and we have tried a few of them, but this is definitely the best one. Ours usually lasts 2-3 weeks, but we do have it quite a lot, so it could last a lot longer, but the price is still pretty reasonable I think.
This is a mild barbecue sauce but I think that only relates to spiciness not actual flavour, as it is really packed with flavour. It has that classic barbecue taste which is down to the combination of spices used, and it does indeed taste smokey. The honey element is what makes this sauce so great for me though, it just gives it that sweet stickiness that makes it really lovely.
It claims on the sainsburys website that a 20g serving of this (I'm not sure how many squirts or dollops that actually is, I don't measure it out before it goes on the plate) has 25 calories, which does seem to me like quite a few considering I wouldn't class this as food, but I suppose if you are counting the calories that will make a bit of a difference. I'm not sure if it is suitable for vegetarians because of the honey (I'm not entirely sure of the politics behind bees/honey/vegetarianism).
I find this is great with lots of meals, we really do have it with some crazy things, but I think it's at it's best with home made potato wedges, or with a veggie sausage in a bun. I imagine for the meat eaters out there it's is also great with barbecued meat. Would really recommend it.
I originally bought this sauce last summer for a BBQ I was having at my house when there were no other branded BBQ sauces available in my local Asda. I expected it to just taste the same as all other BBQ sauces (not much variance as far as I can tell) with the 'Honey & Woodsmoke' just added onto the label for a bit of extra marketing, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it out and there has always been a bottle in my house ever since.
The sauce doesn't taste too dissimilar to other BBQ sauces in that you can try it alone and you would still describe it as a BBQ sauce, although the extra flavouring really catapults this sauce to the front of the pack of good tasting BBQ sauces. As with any sauce, it depends on your own personal preference as to what it can be enjoyed with and how much is used, but I've found it to go well with all cooked potato foods but excellently with all meats whether barbequed or not (especially chicken and sausages).
It is a thick sauce, but not quite as thick as typical tomato sauce and this is shown in how easily it comes out of the bottle. It is packaged in the easy to serve 'squeezy' bottle that many sauces now come in, and similarly priced to other sauces of the same size (430g).
HP Mild B B Q Sauce (Honey Woodsmoke flavour).
This is a really nice flavoured sauce which i discovered at my local Sainsbury's store when browsing along their sauce and pickles shelves recently, which is a must have in our house. I like to have a little bit of sauce on the side of my plate and think that this enhances any meal.
Costing £1.29p and comes in a Plasic bottle, this contains 430grams of sauce, and is a fairly new product on the market. Sold as a B B Q sauce, which is what it would be great for, B B Q's when the weathers permitting but I also like to eat this at any time of the year. The Bottle is made from a hard plastic and has a pull open snap shut lid, it does pour easily, but you may have to stand the bottle upside down to get the last remains of this sauce to come oput of the bottle, it is thick but not so thick that it doesnt pour out, until you get to the bottom, which incidentally you can see because the bottle although not exactly clear plastic, it is clear enough to see the sauce inside, so you can tell when it is time to buy or restock a new bottle.
This bottle of sauce just makes a change from the usual H P Brown Sauce, although the added honey isnt so obviously sweet to the taste it does help to enhance the really lovely tasting sauce, brown and fairly thick with the woodsmoked flavour so it is an ideal addition to any sausage or meat meal, and goes down so well, it isnt harse to the throat like some of the brown sauces I have tried, in fact I really liked this sauce and will definitely be purchasing some more, now this bottle is empty.
I am happy with the ingredients, which contain tomatoes, Molasses, Spirit Vinegar, Honey at just three pre cent, and lovely flavourings and spices, which add to this sauce tasting so great.
I will definetely be buying this for when I have B B Q's in the summer as it will be a great winner with all kinds of food cooked both inside and outside, You are advised to shake well before pouring this sauce, I can see that would be a good idea. I keep mine in the fridge once openned, its just what I do.
This product is manufactured by the Company H J Heinz Holding B V for HP Foods Limited, and they are based in Hayes Middlesex so this is british.
The fat content in this sauce is a mere 0.2g's and fibre is the same, the protein is 0.6g's and cals are 126kcals per 100g serving, I like quite a lot of this sauce, and really enjoy dipping things into it, it is also great to add on top of a cheese on toast, or a cheese sandwich, I liked the sweetness of this sauce and the lovely aroma that it has when you smell it, smells just like B B Q ribs which I love.
I would recemmond this product as it is a great different sauce and hope that you like it too.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
HP Honey Woodsmoke Flavour Mild BBQ Sauce
Description: Manufacturer: HP / Type: Sauce.
Chances are that even if you haven't tried this sauce yet, you will have seen it on the shelves in your local supermarket. i have walked past it loads of times and if I am being honest, I probably wouldn't have considered buying it until I tried it in a friends house.
The sauce comes in 430g squeezy bottle which is handy as it means that the sauce comes out quickly and smoothly. The bottle is clear allowing you to see the rich brown sauce inside and it has a snap on lid.
A bottle will cost you around £1.30 but can sometimes be picked up on offer.
I often find that bottled BBQ sauces can be a little tasteless but this one surprised me. It has a slightly sweet and fruity taste and the woodsmoke flavour is very natural and adds something a little bit different. The honey taste isn't really apparent except for the slight sweetness and the sauce goes really well with heaps of foods.
I also use this sauce as a marinade, it works best when left overnight of course (as with all marinades) and is excellent on prawns of chicken. It also works really well on chips, burgers, potato wedges and surprisingly, as a quick salad marinade when mixed with a little olive oil! I discovered this by accident when I ran out of salad dressing and so put a tablespoon of this sauce in a jar with two tablespoons of olive oil and then shook it well.
If you are a fan of smokey BBQ sauces then this one is well worth trying, I like to keep a bottle in the fridge and use it quite often, and will keep adding it to my shopping list because it is so tasty!

The other week I noticed we was running out of bbq sauce, I have it with loads of things so had to buy some before the bottle was all gone or I'd be lost! lol The trouble was that the normal HP BBQ sauce was on special offer in Morrisons so they'd run out of it, there was still loads of this Honey Woodsmoke BBQ Sauce on the shelf though because that was still full price so I brought a bottle to try.
It's yummy, there's not that much difference between this and the original HP bbq sauce actually so if you've got to buy this then it's no major drama.
There's no honey flavour in it so I don't know what that's all about, this bbq sauce has got a bit of a sweeter taste so that might be the honey but I was a bit peed about it because I was expecting the sauce to have a bit of a sticky honey flavour.
The sauce is lovely and smokey, that's the main difference between this and the normal HP bbq sauce I think and also the fact that this one hasn't got such a strong and harsh taste as you're eating it. I think the taste of this bbq sauce goes wicked with meat, I had some with cold sausages the other night and it was yummy and gave the sausage a wicked smokey bbq flavour.
You don't need to use much of this sauce to get a rich flavour and if you overdo it then you'll spoil your food because the sauce has got a strong flavour so it can easy overwhelm foods that have got a fainter taste. It doesn't go as well on a cheese butty as the original bbq sauce that HP do, I don't know why that is but reckon it's something to do with this one being a bit sweeter.
I'll deffo buy this Honey Woodsmoke BBQ Sauce again but still prefer the original one, just because that one goes good with more foods than this one. If you're looking for something to liven up meat without spending a fortune on spices and packet sauces then this might be just the thing you're looking for.
I paid £1.69 for this bottle and it will last most families for ages, it doesn't last me that long though because I eat it at least twice a day! lol
I adore BBQ sauce so when I saw this turn up a couple of weeks ago I was a wee bit upset to be honest. I always go for the HP smoked original version of this and I love it but Mum picked this up during the weekly shop for me and I was a bit disappointed. However this being the only option or lump it I decided to get stuck in with an open mind...and I'm so glad I did!
430g see-through plastic oblong shaped bottle which is squeezy and it has a white flip top opening to the top of it concealing a small hole. On the front and to the sides of the bottle it has an orangy coloured label and on that I'm told it's HP Mild BBQ Sauce Honey Woodsmoked Flavour 'Smokey flavour BBQ sauce with a delicious hint of honey'. Other information on the bottle includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients and nutritional information is listed along with the weight being stated and contact details for HP Food are given. It's a nice enough bottle and it's easy to use etc.
A Bit About The Product According To The Bottle:
HP BBQ Sauce 'Honey' adds a delicious smokey flavour to your favourite dishes. HP Honey Woodsmoked BBQ Sauce has a great smokey BBQ flavour from an inauthentic wood smoking process. It's the perfect accompaniment to grilled and barbecued meats and all your favourites dishes. It is also a great baste; simply turn the meat and brush with sauce during the last 5-10 minutes of grilling.
Absolute lovely! It's a rich glossy brown colour with a nice sweetish smell to it along with a smokey aroma. It's of good consistency too and what I do like about HP sauces in general is that put on hot or near warm foods they don't melt all over the place but hold their consistency very well indeed.
Now I have eaten this as a dip and on burgers and things like that and I have basted meat with this because it's so versatile and it's great (to me) with absolutely anything really!
Taste wise, well it's BBQ sauce. Rich, fruity and slightly smokey it has a tomato undertone and a slight spicy taste but nothing hot. It's just a really tasty and well blended sauce and not overwhelming in flavour. I was slightly worried about the honey being in it but it just gives a slight and natural sweetness to it and it's not all that different to the original wood smoked BBQ sauce in this range really, like I say just has a small extra sweetness to it. It's well seasoned and tangy and I love it!
Basting meat with this is easy. As we're told to simply baste meat 5-10 minutes before ending the cooking and all it does is give a slight sweetness to food with that lovely smoked undertone.
Versatile and tasty this is and I shall be eating this alot more in future, it peps up even the most boring meals!
