If you're unfamiliar with Bachan's, it's a family-owned company that produces authentic Japanese barbecue sauces. Its products are made with simple, vegan ingredients and created in small batches. Bachan's also produces the top sauce on Amazon, according to a recent article by Forbes. Pretty cool, right?

Currently, Bachan's offers four types of barbecue sauce: original, yuzu, hot and spicy, and gluten-free. Costco is now selling the original version, which is said to taste like "the eel sauce that's commonly put on sushi," according to a Reddit user.

To find out if the product is available at your local Costco, contact your warehouse before stopping by. It appears the sauce isn't sold at all Costco stores, so it's worth calling ahead first. Otherwise, you can order the product from the Bachan's website.

As it turns out, Bachan's barbecue sauce isn't just for barbecue. It can be enjoyed in myriad ways, as proven by the company's recipe page. Personally, we're drooling over Bachan's recipes for glazed salmon fillet and sweet and spicy garlic butter shrimp.
