Lenny Awards – Best Spicy Products of 2020

This is the 11th year that I am doing these awards to celebrate the amazing makers of spicy products in this community. It is on this day in 2010 that my Dad, Leonard “Lenny” Goldenberg passed away from Cancer, and rather than mourn him, I celebrate his life and the way he lived to help others. I dedicated the Best of the Year Award to my Mom, Helen Goldenberg, who also passed away from a Cancer, Leukemia in 2018. Last year I dedicated a new award in honor of my friend and ILoveItSpicy reviewer and supporter, Firehead Thomas J Gately who passed away suddenly and with no warning in August 2019. He was a man who lived life to the fullest and lit up a room with his sheer presence. He had a huge impact in my life, and it is my honor to give him a bit of a legacy with this award moving forward. The video, if you choose to watch it, is the one I did Live on Facebook this evening. All the companies that I named in the video have their information listed below, so if you would like to seek their products, I tried to connect you with them. I hope you will reward them too with a purchase.
