You mean besides a whole lot of deliciousness?! I always use the best ingredients I can source. That means organic and non-GMO as much as possible, no added chemicals or artificial ingredients, vegan/beegan friendly, and low salt/sugar too. Additionally, being gluten-sensitive myself, all of my sauces are gluten-free. If you'd like specific ingredients per sauce, they're available on each sauce page under the "Ingredients" dropdown.
Absolutely! They are shelf stable for at least two years and, after opening, as long as they are refrigerated properly they should last you at least six months (but who wants to take six months to use our sauce?!!). Because there are also a variety of factors that can impact the safety of any condiment used (such as temp of refrigerator, if the lid/sauce is cross-contaminated etc.) we recommend using common sense; if it looks or smells off, it's best to discard it.
The older I get, the more I understand that small changes can have big results. The influence of my parents and a few specific friends have helped me be more conscious about doing my part... even if it's little things... to help the planet. Once I realized I'd be shipping my sauces I made a commitment to myself to use as little plastic and as much recycled or reused material as possible for my packing and shipping. My shipping boxes are made of recycled materials, my tape is recyclable, and the wrapping/filling inside your box is either recycled material, recyclable material, and/or compostable material. It's not the easiest or cheapest way to send my sauces, but I believe it's the responsible way and am excited to be able to offer it to my customers :)
I source all of my ingredients and packaging needs within the USA, and specifically from as many other small businesses within Colorado as possible; that way, as I grow and succeed I help other small businesses here grow and succeed. Once I have everything needed, my sauces are bottled at an FDA approved facility in Colorado (3568 N Peoria St, #605, Aurora 80010)
One of the biggest surprises to me when I prepared to launch my business was how expensive shipping is. Just know that what you're charged is what I'm charged; I don't make any money off of it. I've partnered with the lowest-cost provider of shipping labels and am always on the lookout for ways to ship less expensively, so if you know of any feel free to shoot me a note!
We have many locations around Colorado including grocery stores, specialty retailers, and other on-line partners. We also do many farmers markets and holiday bazaars during the year. You can even find our sauces at Denver International Airport! To see a full list of your options, click here.
