  • The best cocktail sauce you can buy

    This sauce is absolutely perfect, exactly the bold flavor I have been looking for, unlike the bigger brands it doesn't taste like ketchup. Absolutely perfect

    I used to make my own cocktail sauce, which I will say was quite good. Picked this up at Sam's Club .... not only have I NOT made my own sauce since then, I don't even know where my old recipe is anymore.

    Sooo.....are we just gonna act like this isn’t the best thing to happen to battered shrimp since hot grease. I picked this bottle up on a whim opting for Bookbinders over the store brand cocktail sauce of the same price. Let. Me. Tell. You. From the first taste of this sauce on my shrimp I had to pause and find somebody to tell how unexpectedly DELICIOUS this cocktail sauce is. I tried telling my girlfriend, woke my kids up to have them try it—all thought it was good but none shared my passion for the taste. So, I had to come online and post a comment. EAT THIS SAUCE.

    I agree with the other person who was upset that Sam's Club wasn't carrying Bookbinder's cocktail sauce any longer. We are seafood lover's and Bookbinder's is the only cocktail sauce that I will use. I don't want to just buy those small jars, it would be too much waste to have all of those jars to dispose of. I prefer to purchase the larger jar that last awhile.

    Looks like I'm not the only one who is VERY disappointed that Sam's Club is not carrying Bookbinder's cocktail sauce. Walmart does not have it in stock either. Would order it on Amazon, but I need it in 2 days and can't get it quick enough...NOT happy!! Love that sauce!!

    Bookbinders cocktail is the best cocktail sauce I have ever had . Sams Club no longer has it . This is a minus for sams club and I do not think we will renew our membership . This is so like sams club and one of many things we liked at sams club that they do not carry anymore. I think others should think about their membership also. WAY TO GO AGAIN SAMS.

    Went to Sam's Club yesterday to purchase seafood and Bookbinder's Cocktail Sauce. Disappointed to find Sam's Club is no longer carrying product again. This is the best sauce I have ever used. Guess I will have to start making my own again. Sam's Club has discontinued carrying so many product favorites that I may not renew my membership after 15+ years as a member.

    This is bad news....what was Sam's Club thinking? By far, your cocktail sauce is the disappointed they decided not to carry it any longer. They still sell fish and no cocktail sauce.......not good marketing on their point. This was not a good way to start 2020 for me!! :-(

    This cocktail sauce is by far the best in the country. I'm not sure why but Sams club has discontinued as of 4 weeks ago. I will not be shopping at Sam's club because of this reason. What are they thinking at their corporate office ?

    I agree with others about the disappointment that Sam's Club is no longer selling Bookbinder's Cocktail Sauce. I live along the SC coast and a variety of cocktail sauces are available but none are acceptable taste-wise to my family, except Bookbinde'r. I sure wish it was still at Sam's. Used to buy several quart jars at a time, and recommend to others when they couldn't believe it wasn't my own homemade secret recipe!

    I previously purchased your cocktail sauce at Kroger in Michigan and Fry's in Arizona. I recently relocated to Fort Myers, Florida and have not been able to source it here. It's a great product and am wondering if any retailers carry it here. It pairs well with shrimp and I would like to serve it with our local Key West Pink Shrimp sourced from the Gulf of Mexico.

    Hands cocktail sauce on the market! We live near the boarder of Toledo, OH and can't get this anywhere. They used to sell jumbo size in Sam's more. Found in FL and took home a dozen small jars. Their sister co, makes a mean course ground horseradish. That also is the best we have ever found. A company that knowsits horseradish and how to use it! YUM. Please get the largest grocer..Krogers to carry both products!
