Hit Starter Kit – Dipitt Peri Peri Medium

DISLIKE

  • Has a runny consistency
  • Comes in a fragile bottle
  • No sodium content information

My nephew loves this one with his fries and well, sometimes I like to steal his lemony, hot fries. Dipitt Peri Peri Medium is lemony, and spicy. It is mild and rightly balanced between sour lemon and hot spice. It is hit for the starters, and kids, both.
