Regular readers of my blog may remember that last year I was introduced to the Real Good Ketchup brand when I got a bottle as part of a competition prize. I used some in my meat loaf recipe which I shared with you.
I’m now a big fan of Real Good Ketchup which contains no added refined sugar and 70% less sugars and 70% less salt than other regular branded ketchups. It also has no artificial flavourings or preservatives. This is ideal for our family, particularly as son2 goes through ketchup at a rate of knots. He even has it in his favourite chicken and cucumber sandwiches. Ever since, I’ve been keeping my eye out for it to appear in my local branch of the Co-op, but sadly it hasn’t hit the shelves there yet, although can get via Ocado.
I’ve now received a bottle of the other flavour in the Real Good range, free to review. This is BBQ Smokey ketchup, which comes in a 285g glass bottle. And again with no added sugar.
Of course, I had to try it out in a recipe so here is my BBQ Smokey Bacon Wrapped Chicken recipe. And for son2 who won’t eat bacon, I made some homemade chicken nuggets served with the BBQ Smokey ketchup as a dip on the side of the plate. You may page down for that recipe.

3 of us loved the BBQ Smokey ketchup, but son2 preferred the original tomato flavour.
