Classic barbecue taste-minus the unhealthy junk!

Few foods bring on such positive feelings of goodwill and fellowship quite like barbecue. The trouble is, traditional barbecue foods are often loaded with extra fat and calories, leaving you feeling anything but good. Luckily, there’s a way to enjoy your favorite outdoor summer dishes and feel good about what you’re putting into your body. Our Skinny Ms Barbecue Sauce is made with only 100% clean ingredients, tastes fabulous, and goes great on our Spicy Barbecue Chicken, our Barbecue Pulled Chicken, or any other food you want to slap on the grill.
