Testimonial from ‘a Kingstonian in Florida’

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Just wanted to say how much I love your jerk, oxtail & curry marinades! Keep up the great work and I wish you every success that you deserve.

I do wish that in addition to the original jerk marinade that you made a milder version for children and my foreign friends & family that can’t handle the heat. If you don’t, well, that just means more for me! lol

Best wishes,
Lee (a Kingstonian in Florida)

Jerk chicken is a tradition in our family on Boxing Day. My Mum and Gran cook it for the whole family every year it’s a real event. This year we used Spur Tree Jamaica Jerk Seasoning. And it’s the best I can remember. My Gran’s still raving about it – says she can taste the real scotch bonnet and that it’s the closest she’s ever had to “the real t’ing” since she’s been in the UK – 55 years! Thanks Spur Tree – you’ve made an elderly Jamaican lady very happy!

I tried Spur Tree Jamaica Jerk Seasoning for the first time this weekend. I’ve tried all the brands – but this one is easily the best.

After a few hours marinating, I cooked chicken pieces on the grill. It couldn’t be easier. The flavour was just amazing – spicy and so natural- and the texture of the marinated chicken just perfect. I’ll definitely be trying the rest of the range.

This is a great product. I’ve been to Jamaica and had authentic jerk
chicken. This tastes the same as when I was there. After purchasing many
jerk products in the USA I’m happy I found this. I won’t buy any other
jerk product now. Thanks for the response!

Sarah (Kingston & Fort Lauderdale) On Spur Tree Sauces

Monday, August 1st, 2011

My husband is a hot sauce connoisseur.  He is constantly looking for the “perfect” sauce: a clean pepper flavor, and enough heat to “make him cry” (figuratively, of course!)  When he discovered Spur Tree’s Crushed Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce, it was love at first taste – now our home cannot be without it.

For me, Spur Tree’s Pepper Jelly is the “must-have” ingredient for our home.  It’s sweet, and has just enough of a kick, and is completely addictive with all kinds of cheeses: cream cheese, cheddar, pepper jack – served with crackers it’s an instant and easy hit for entertaining.

When we got married, we wanted to send our overseas guests home with a ‘taste of Jamaica’ gift bag – I knew right away that Spur Tree products had to be included. Our guests unanimously raved about the Crushed Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce and Pepper Jelly, and are clamoring for more!

Hello, I just finished a bottle of your awesome crushed scotch bonnet pepper sauce. I wanted to know if you have a website that I can order from or a local distributor in the Modesto, California area. I received the bottle as a gift and it is amazing. Thank you for your time.

Erica (Connecticut) On Spur Tree Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce & Curry Seasoning

“I’m happy to say my local store has now re-stocked their shelves with Spur Tree Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce – thanks for your help! I must also say I tried your Curry Seasoning and I had to say to my Mom the following day “where is that scotch bonnet flavor smell coming from?” and she said, “remember that curry sauce has scotch bonnet pepper in it”. It’s delicious…thanks for creating such a beautiful curry. Do you know where your Pepper Jelly is sold in Brooklyn, in particular or anywhere in New York City?”
