Other questions about "Packet"

Q: I bought a packet of chestnuts, but most of them are rotten. Does this sound natural?
A: You did an awesome job!

Pronounce your t at the end of “most” and “chestnut,” try not to drop it
The ou in “bought” makes an aw sound, drop your jaw a bit to help you pronounce this. It isn’t pronounced with your lips. The way you said it is still really good, though.

(I drop my t’s a lot in the middle of words because I have a Midwest American accent. Like in rotten. The way you say rotten is perfect. Also, the middle t in “chestnuts” is silent. Good job with that!)

Q: You crack the packet, then you can drizzle the sauce in two ways.

"Two ways" means that they are two different sauces in the package.

Could you make this better? Does this sound natural?
A: I sounds natural to me, but if it is a choice of two different sauces, I would say instead, "You own the packet. Then you can choose which sauce you want to drizzle."

This could be rephrased several different ways, but the main thing is to indicate that there is a choice of sauces. If you say you can drizzle the sauce two ways, it sounds like there is only one sauce packet, and not a choice between two sauces. I hope I understood your question correctly and provided a useful answer.
