Austin Hot Sauce Festival 2009

Anyone who attended the Austin Chronicle’s Annual Hot Sauce Festival this year probably waited in at least one of the extremely long lines to try some hot sauces.  Fortunately or unfortunately, lines at our booth were one of the longest – we continued to supply eager tasters with samples of our Salsas and Sauces from 11:00am until 6:00pm.

It was our 1st year particpating in the commercial bottlers category,  I’m so excited to share the results with you! Overall, we won 5 awards.

Our big winners were:

  • Curry Chiptole Salsa in Red Sauce – 1st Place
  • Mirchi Masala Salsa in Green Sauce – 1st Place
  • Mango Chutney in Speciality Sauce – 3rd Place

Alhough these 3 sauces won the awards, our other sauces sold extremely well.  In fact, we sold out of Mirchi Masala Salsa Verde and Curry Tabasco in first few hours of opening.  For those of you who wanted to sample try them but didn’t get chance, we are making a fresh batch this week for the farmer’s market at the Triangle on Wed and Downtown on Sat so please stop by our booth.

When all is said and done, it doesn’t matter how many awards we win, what matters most is what our customers (you) like! Thanks to all of y’all for visiting our booth and voting for our People’s Choice Awards.  Without you, none of this would have been possible.
