As a lover of all things food, sauces, and fun things, we often review products and events, not only for our own research, but to share my opinions with others. They are just that — opinions.
Whenever we review or refer to a product that was provided to us, we will make it clear in the post. we provide not only details of how we received the product, but we often link to the company. Our reviews are honest, and if done at the request of a company, rest assured that the compensation of cash or product does not have any bearing on the content.
From time to time, we might accept sponsored posts, for which we are paid in cash or other compensation. When we do that, we make it clear in the post and include a link to this policy.
As stated above, we also do use affiliate links and banners across the website. While we always try to make it as clear as possible, it is possible that when you click a link or a banner on my site, we may get a small commission or other compensation. The only things you’ll see me link to or recommend are products or services we’ve tried or used, and if you choose to click through but prefer not to use the affiliate tag, simply remove that from the web address before completing your purchase.
