And let me tell you, this sauce did not disappoint. It is, hands down, the king of condiments. Within three days of opening the WHITE TRUFF, I'm down half a bottle. I have it on everything: Eggs, toasties, pasta, pizza, wraps, burgers, smashed avo. I could write an entire essay on why I think it's so incredible, but you really just need to grab a bottle for yourself, so you can understand."
