A taste of Jamaica?

Caribbean Choice Baked beans, Coconut milk and Vienna sausages.
On my fortnightly grocery shopping trip yesterday, I noticed a trend. I noticed that the above pictured brand  was consistently the cheapest and it was the cheapest by quite a margin. 

Now because it was the cheapest on the market, I had to find out more about this product. I initially thought that this product was the brainchild of some productive Jamaican seeking to make a livelihood  in this very difficult economic climate. Upon further investigation (reading the label) this is what I found. 

Vienna Sausage

Baked Beans

Coconut Powder.

These products are from Grace Kennedy Ltd and all but one is actually produced here in Jamaica. Grace Kennedy is one of the biggest food companies in Jamaica. 
It is a good thing for the public that there are cheaper alternatives on the market, provided that these alternatives are of high quality. 
I have never tried these products before and so I cannot speak to the quality or taste, but I assure you that as soon as I do, you will be the first to know my findings.

What do you think of these products? Comment below.

Update: The quality of these products are very good. I now regularly purchase the Coconut Milk, to be used in my kitchen.
