    Simple but effective. The monkey swinging from the logo is fun and memorable.


    It has a muted orange hue. While much darker than a fresh mango, it definitely gives the impression of natural ingredients. It has a thick consistency with a slight chunkiness that is uniform throughout.


    A strong smell of a variety of ground spices upfront with a faint undercurrent of fresh mangoes.


    The first thing I taste is a slightly sour fruitiness that rushes to the front before quickly giving way to the distinct taste of ground spices. It gives a strong impression of curry powder, which makes sense as a sauce inspired by Indian flavors. I am able to pick up cumin, turmeric and fenugreek. The initial spice blast is intense before quickly mellowing and lingering across the palate.


    A distinct but mild heat that I attribute more to the spices than the chilies. The heat hits quickly in the middle of the mouth that mellows very quickly to a pleasant, lingering "sunburn" throughout the mouth that seems confined to the front and middle of the palate.


    A unique sauce experience that I encourage everyone to try. As a fruit based sauce, I expected something very sweet and fruit forward but instead got a more complex, balanced experience. Given the natural sweetness of mangoes, I personally would have preferred a stronger fruit presence on the front end. It is also very mild from a heat perspective and is interesting as a spice based heat as opposed to chilies for something different. I could definitely see this sauce becoming a ketchup substitute for a lot of people.
