This is a great, sweet sauce for fried chicken and/or fries. The sauce is reminiscent of the mumbo sauce found in Chinese carry outs in the DC area. Enjoy! MUMBO® is a registered trademark of SELECT BRANDS LLC.

I was born and raised in the DC/MD area and now I live in SC. I grew up on chicken wings and mumbo sauce. This sauce is absolutely as close as it gets to the real thing. EXCELLENT!!!!
