See what we thought of Eat17's new Chinese Five Spice Bacon Jam…


Posted 31st Jul 2018

You've heard the hype, but does Eat 17's Chinese Five Spice Bacon Jam reach Your Home's expectations? Here's what we thought…

 

First impressions…

The jam comes in a 110g jar with the brand's iconic gold lid. The pot did seem a little on the small side. Looking at other condiments, we usually expect the weight to be around 200g, but that said, this is more of a ‘craft’ condiment.

After glancing at the ingredients list, there wasn't an ingredient on there that we couldn't pronounce – always a good start! 

 

Smells like…

Once we opened the jar, we certainly had high expectations for the condiment. It smelled incredible! Immediately we were hit with the heady scent of five spice, followed by the brand's renowned salty and sweet bacon flavour.

 

The taste test…

We tried the jam on a plain cracker and on its own. Both times we were not disappointed!

It tasted exactly as it smelled – like a satisfying combination between the best Chinese takeaway you've had and a sweet, sticky and salty jam.

The jam was well paired with cheese, crackers, and even on toast. You could have it with a cheese board, on a burger, on toast, or even on its own.

 

The verdict…

We'd definitely add this jar to our condiment cupboard.

Priced at £3.99 for a 105g pot, it does venture into the upper price range for a condiment and it could get quite pricey if you were to use it as a marinade. However, we would certainly have this on hand for a summer BBQ, or a dinner party cheeseboard.

 

Eat17’s Chinese Five Spice Bacon Jam is available to purchase from all Eat17 stores, Amazon and Everything Niche.
