Chaka's Mmm Sauce Review & Giveaway

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of having the same ol’ baked chicken or spaghetti night after night. Yes, we do cook other things, but sometimes we forget to try NEW things! Too much of the same thing (even if it’s a GREAT thing) can be boring, it’s too repetitive and drives me insane. That’s why, whenever I came across Chaka’s Mmm Sauce I knew I wanted to try it.

What’s up with that name?Whenever we are grilling up samples at the numerous events we participate in each year, the first question people ask is “What’s up with that name?” CHAKA is an old Chamarru Clan name. Chaka is from Guam and used his surname for the product. The MMM portion of the name comes from the reaction just about every person has after their very first taste. MMMMMMMMM…..it’s quite comical. As Chaka himself always says “Once you master the grill, you can taste the passion!”

Chaka’s Mmm Sauce is extremely versatile and can be used on any different type of meat: chicken, beef, pork, and fish, anything you want. Use it as a marinade, sauce, dressing, or any other way you want; the possibilities are endless. Is there better news than it being versatile? Absolutely. It’s healthy. You know, the thing that everyone talks about but can rarely find. Yeah! That’s what this is. How are they healthy, you ask? These sauces are sugar free, fat free and dairy free!

The man that invented this sauce, Chaka, was born in Guam. Unfortunately for him, he was a diabetic. Therefore, finding a sauce was nearly impossible due to how much sugar is found in sauces. So he thought back to his old family recipe, which had no sugar, and decided it would be the best marinade to solve his issue.

I was able to review the Original and the Zesty. At first, I didn’t know if I would like it. It doesn’t taste like your average sauce. First things first, I tried the Original as a salad dressing. I have to admit, I didn’t care for it. It just wasn’t what I prefer. I thought the taste didn’t suit a salad. From that point on, I was nervous to use it cooking dinner. It took me a couple of days and then I tried again.

This time, I used it as a marinade for chicken. It made all of the difference in the world! The sauce tasted fantastic as a marinade! The chicken had a great taste and was super moist! The skin was crispy (which I love!), meat was moist; I had half-expected the sauce to dry out the meat, especially after my first encounter with the sauce. However it was truly fantastic! We didn’t season the chicken with anything, no salt – nothing. All that we did was marinade the chicken in the Chaka’s Mmm Sauce - Original Flavor.

So, although I did not care for the sauce as a dressing, I thought it was a great marinade. It is definitely something that I would use again (which we plan to, using pork chops). Be sure that you check it out for yourself!
