Owner of French’s mustard brand, Reckitt Benckiser has launched its new Smooth & Spicy sauce in the UK.

The French’s Smooth & Spicy sauce is hotter than French’s Classic Yellow American mustard but not as hot as English mustard, the company said. It is free from artificial colours and preservatives.

A spokesperson for the company said the product is being rolled-out from the beginning of October and will be in stores by 5 November.

The sauce will be available in most major supermarkets including Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Whole Foods Market, or online at Amazon with a RRP of GBP1.79 (US$2.80).
