Seacrets Honey Mustard
Now Offered Regionally

OCEAN CITY – Seacrets has bottled its honey mustard sauce to bring a taste of an Ocean City summer to Giant grocery stores throughout Delaware, Maryland, D.C., and Virginia.

For 25 years, Seacrets Honey Mustard has been a staple at the Eastern Shore hot spot, and now it’s available at more than 150 locations across the region. In stores now, the gluten-free product is made with 100 percent pure clover honey produced from the nectar of clover blossoms, giving the dipping sauce a mild and sweet flavor.

While originally concocted by Seacrets founder Leighton Moore as a topping for the restaurant’s famous Jerk Chicken dishes, Seacrets Honey Mustard goes well with chicken, as a salad topping, with French fries, on soft pretzels and more. The 16-ounce bottle retails for $5.99.

“Seacrets Honey Mustard started off as a flavor combination that I developed in my kitchen by mixing together some of my favorite ingredients,” said Moore. “When patrons started walking off with the product, I knew we needed to get it on grocery store shelves so our Ocean City customers could enjoy its unique taste right at home no matter the time of year.”
