I wrote Premio customer service regarding the difference between 'Mild' and 'Sweet.' They finally got back to me today.
Thanks for writing us. To answer your question, the terms Sweet and Mild
are the same formulations for Italian link products. For Italian sausage
Sweet is the regional descriptor recognized in the Northeast Corridor and
Mild is the descriptor in most other regions (South and Midwest). You will
see Sweet in the other regions, but it is very different from Northeast
Corridor Sweet in that it has more Italian spices like basil or oregano...
we sell a Mild and a Sweet at Walmart . I hope that answers your question
and thank you for your interest in our products.

Dear Premio Customer Service,
I have a question regarding your use of the terms 'Mild' and 'Sweet' on your
website and on your product packaging. The mild sausage is a different
sausage than the sweet, correct? Could you clarify this for me?
