Big Daddy Jake’s Mango Habanero Jelly

I’ve been sick for the last few days thanks to a nasty flu bug and when I’m sick I do what ever man does – reverts to grade school. So in going with my weekend theme I decided to have a PB&J sandwich for dinner.

Big Daddy Jake's Mango Habanero JellySo I went for Big Daddy Jake’s Mango Habanero Jelly and extra crunchy peanut butter (of course). I was expecting to have my sinuses cleared out instantly after reading the previous review of this tropical jelly but when I took my first bite… nothing. No heat, no wham bam, thank you mam – nada. But then slowly the heat began to build and suddenly it felt like a torch was lit in the back of my throat. The habaneros singed all the way down to my stomach.

This Habanero Mango Jelly doesn’t taste much like any habanero or mango jelly I’ve had before – typically I find that jellies will have a predominant flavor, but Big Daddy Jakes is just a sweet melody of the two.

I can’t wait to try this jelly on some pork chops, mmmm……
