If you only can bring one thing home from Barbados, we suggest you grab a bottle of Bajan Pepper Sauce. The mustard and vinegar-base hot pepper sauce is used as a condiment in several local dishes including meat, fish and chicken. Forbes Travel Guide’s editors found it’s not too spicy, and packed with flavor. Aunt May’s Bajan Pepper Sauce is one of the best versions, but head into any local grocery store or souvenir shop and you’re certain to find a bottle or two.
If spicy condiments aren’t your thing, a good back-up souvenir is a bottle of the famous Barbados Mount Gay Rum. The first rum ever produced comes in several varieties, and if purchased duty free is much cheaper than any bottle you’ll buy elsewhere.
