Kraft is stepping up to revamp their barbecue sauces. Consumer research uncovered that barbecue sauce lovers want quality ingredients and bold flavor varieties that turn the spotlight where it belongs – on the food. Consumers also said they preferred their barbecue sauce without high fructose corn syrup, so they switched to cane sugar. Yes and yes!!!
