“This was your best marinade. Everyone at my house who can't agree on anything loved this. Excellent on everything. It made the best deer tenderloin. You need to bring back the Smokin' Sweet Tea! I'm going to go cry now. ”

  • This is my favorite one, when I can find in a store I buy all of them since they are hard to find. Now the last store I could find them in doesn't get them any more either. Why can't we buy these online? Bring this one back, do not stop making this one available!

  • So VERY UNHAPPY that this product is no longer available!!! First you take the Tequila Lime Marinade, then the Brushetta Sweet Basil and Oregano seasoning is only available online, now the Smokin' Sweet Tea is GONE????

  • Why would you discontinue this product?! I've tried pretty much all of these marinades and IMO this was the best. I don't get it.
