Has anyone tried this product yet?  It was supposed to be in all Florida Publix stores effective July 15, but the two stores I queried had never heard of if.

    It's in my local Ingle's so if you have Ingle's in Tallahassee, give them a try.

      Looks like a mustard base chow-chow.  I'd give it a try if it ever came up north.

        Hmmm... Spicy version sounds good!  Have to go snoop in my local Publix's relish section...

          Looks interesting but hasn't made it to much of the Southwest yet.
          I'd be interested to know the ingredients. Looks like a chopped cabbage and mustard mix.

            Oh my gosh...yes, yes, yes.  Had a friend introduce me to it July 4th (well, the weekend before...we get thing started early in Charleston) and I will be a lifelong customer of Slawsa.  I haven't checked my Publix but got it at Piggly Wiggly here.  I know it looks a little like chow chow or heavily mustard but it's anything but and SO GOOD.  I highly recommend to buy it if its near you.  Our Pig only had the Regular flavor but I'd be interested in the spicy too.  It has a nice amount of heat to it, I like the crunch and it also has a nice moisture content.  We had Slawsa on brats and never will we go back to mustard.  I've since had on ham sandwich and pulled pork.  Whoever invested this stuff was a genius!  We'll be tailgating at UGA games all fall with our jar of Slawsa in hand.  Go Dawgs!

                Thanks!  Actually, you may recognize Harry Dunn from "Dumb and Dumber."  Thought it might be a good handle!  What a cool site/forum.

                    Would be cool if they could send a free sample to pro's that may feature it on their menu. Their shipping costs more than the product.

                      Found some at Publix in Alabama last night.  It is on the condiments aisle but sitting with the organic and specialty items.  Cannot wait to try it!

                              I just read this thread last night, and, having never heard of Slawsa, I checked where it might be available in NJ. It turns out there is only one place:
                               
                              http://www.highlandmarket.com/
                               
                              And, in an amazing coincidence, my wife and I had earlier decided to take a day trip today to the towns of New Hope and Lambertville, on the Delaware River. Driving there involved a short, but scenic, detour down Rt 519 to the one NJ source of Slawsa. It set me back $5.49 (it's a gourmet shop), which turns out to be just about the cost each if I ordered 6 of them from the Slawsa website, including shipping.
                               
                              Interesting stuff, looks like that mustard based pickled condiment in jars everywhere, and yes, also looks quite a bit like Rutts Hut's famous relish, but it takes like neither. A little spicy, and worth a detour. It didn't knock my socks off like some of the reviews, but a nice change of pace. I may order a 6 pack.
                               
                              So, thanks everyone for the tip.
                              Here's another on line article about the Slawsa people.

                                  No offense to Mr.Odom, but my family has been eating this kind of concoction for years..........my Mom always served this type of mixture on hot dogs, brats, etc....

                                      Where I originally hail from, the Weequahic section of Newark, N.J., a hot dog with sauerkraut, mustard and sweet relish was called a Sweetworks. In my most fearsome nightmare, I am exiled to Elba, and given the choice of an unending supply of Sweetworks or that Jersey icon, the Italian Hot Dog, but not both. It is a daunting dilemma, and probably the main reason I never, in my travels, fall out of favor with the French Republic during the 19th Century.

                                          Our local Publix finally got this stuff. They're stocking it with the pickles & relishes. It's a nice addition to a hot dog.

                                            Slawsa originates here in nearby Hixson, and I bought it at Walmart.  I thought it was  unremarkable and short on flavor, but I have friends who like it a lot.

                                              Ive tried it. To me it tastes like chow chow with sugar and mustard added. It was $4.00 a pint including tax. I think if you added just a little mustard and a tsp of sugar(+/-) to some chow chow you'd be pretty close... and save a couple bucks.
                                              If you like chow chow you'll probably like it. I do think it would work on a hot dog.

                                                Actually was sauerkraut,mustard and pickle relish mixed......



                                                Ann, I think I'd like that.  Is that dill or sweet pickle relish?

                                                    saw it in 2 local Publix.
                                                    haven't tried it yet.

                                                      Foodbme


                                                      Looks interesting but hasn't made it to much of the Southwest yet.
                                                      I'd be interested to know the ingredients. Looks like a chopped cabbage and mustard mix.

                                                      It looks like chopped saurkraut and pickle relish with mustard to me. Could someone post the ingredients list? I might be able to clone the recipe, or at least something that tastes similar.

                                                          Thanks! I never would have guessed green bell peppers. They have a spicy version as well, I bet it has some jalapeno pepper in it.
