Last year at the DC Fancy Food Show I came across a Puerto Rican Hot Sauce Company that wanted to do a review with us. The reviews were very very positive. Since this is not their review, I will not mention their name. Fast forward 1 year, and I found another hot sauce company from Puerto Rico. This company unlike the other company which only had 1 product, has a total of 8 different hot sauce flavors and heat levels. A play on the 7 Deadly Sins, Flavor Merchants, Inc have creatively marketed their products in both name as well as colorful labeling. I applaud their ingenuity, and surprised that no one has done this idea before. I love it!
After a show I am never completely sure whether I will hear back from any company that I meet or not. This company surprised me by sending me 24 bottles of hot sauce directly to my house. I usually hear from them first and supply the addresses for their review team. I passed them off to my local reviewers of G and the Schobergs. The last review Bishop Brad stepped up to the plate to take over for me so I could focus on the website. I think they are going to have some fun with this 8 hot sauce product line. Why is their 8 sauces and 7 deadly zings? Well, the last one is the Mother of All Zings: Fierce Bitch. I remember the burn from the show, and she is indeed a fierce bitch. Now that we have the intros out of the way, here is a little about the 7 Deadly Zings…
