Eminem selling Mom's Spaghetti sauce in jars for $13
Eminem is giving fans the chance to buy his pasta sauce, Mom's Spaghetti, in a jar.
Eminem has released a line of pasta sauce called Mom's Spaghetti.
The hip-hop legend opened his own popular Detroit eatery in 2021, which has the same name, taken from the lyrics to his 2002 hit 'Lose Yourself' and serves up Slim Shady’s childhood dishes - including the Spaghetti with Toasted Garlic Bread, Spaghetti with Beef or Vegan Meatballs, and a S'ghetti Sandwich.
And soon fans will be able to whip up their own dishes using the signature sauce in the comfort of their own home.
Currently available to pre-order via momsspaghetti.com, a 25-ounce jar costs $13, while a two-pack of Mom’s Spaghetti is priced at $25.
For those who want to experience the sauce the Shady way, the website offers the cooking instructions: “Get your sweaters ready for some tasty s'ghetti sauce!!!
“For the most legitimate Mom's Spaghetti pasta, pull some pre-cooked spaghetti from the fridge and reheat in a frying pan while adding your Mom's Spaghetti sauce ... It’s ready when the noodles have a bit of a snap and the sauce is heated to taste ... That's how you get a great leftover taste the first time around!”
The famous lyric that inspired the sauce is: “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy / There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti.”
Speaking to TMZ about the pop-up restaurant, Curt Catallo, the eatery's co-owner made it clear it was not an authentic Italian experience.
He said when it opened: “It’s not the kind of pasta you’d expect if your grandma came from Italy on a boat … it’s more like the spaghetti you’d know if your mom came from Michigan on a bus.”
The Grammy Award winner - who opened the restaurant in partnership with the Union Joints Restaurant Group - described the S’ghetti Sandwich as his favourite “white trash s***”.
At the time of the opening, the 51-year-old rapper said: “In ‘Lose Yourself’ I was saying it from the perspective of Jimmy Smith Jr., the character I was playing in ['8 Mile']. You make a spaghetti sandwich. It’s definitely some white trash s***. I still eat it today.
Don’t even eat a bite of your spaghetti until you put it in the bread, because otherwise you’re gonna ruin the whole f****** thing.
“Don’t be stupid, if I f****** catch you doing that without the f****** bread, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. Hell, there’s gonna be hell to pay. I’m not trying to offend anyone, but if you’re a f***** idiot, don’t eat Mom’s Spaghetti.”
