Review: Chile Pepper Republic Coffee Bourbon Molasses Rub
A rub is a combination of spices, seasonings and herbs that add flavor and texture to meats. When I first read the label, I thought ok, that’s an interesting combination but I like each of those flavors individually so why not together. I was not disappointed. The flavor blast you get even just dipping your finger in it is delicious, each flavor is detectable quickly and they really blend well.
“A paradise of culinary pleasures awaits you! The adventure begins with Chile Pepper Republic spice blends. Tropical and Caribbean flavours abound from across the seas. Simply Enjoy!”
Ingredients: Garlic Salt, Sugar, Chili Peppers, Molasses, Coffee, Spices and Bourbon.
Upon breaking the seal and taking the first inhale to smell this rub, I got a warm pleasant feeling. The aroma is strong with the Spices, Garlic, the smokey Chile Peppers say hello first. The Coffee is present but underlying and accompanied by a sweetness that is both the Sugar and Molasses. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The rub has an orange/brown color with specks of Coffee and a lot of sugar all through it.
All Natural & No MSG!
I put Chile Pepper Republic’s Coffee Bourbon Molasses Rub on Pork Chops, and laid it on pretty thick. As most rubs do, it locked in the juices making the chops very very tender. This rub has a unique flavor, just a pinch of spicey- for ye seeking the HEAT, it’s not here. This is a good one for the entire family, spicy but very mildly and with a sweet kicker.
Conclusion: When I first saw this rub, I was taken aback with curiosity. Wow that sounds interesting and I can easily say it was. The distinct differences of flavors blend well and together have a very good taste. I would recommend this rub for anyone who likes a sweetness with thier spiciness, because if you do you will enjoy this product.
