You can just find out by going to their website, (http://www.theflaveawards.com/) to see what it is all about since I am pretty much copying and pasting their information right here. Well, mostly. The International Flavor Awards, LLC (IFA’s) in conjunction with the creators of the Summer Feast Food & Music Festival are excited to invite you to compete in the “2016 Flave Awards”. More about the Summer Feast below. The Flave Awards are brand spanking new to this industry, so new there is no pictures yet of what they look like with less than a month to go. They mention a glass trophy for all winners and ribbons for 2nd and 3rd place so at least that is something. There are over 50 categories with an introductory cost of only $50/entry, but with 1 free entry if you enter 3 categories at $150 and 2 free entries if you enter 5 categories at $250. That isn’t too bad to compete for something to put on display for customers to know you done right. Now here is the part I think you will like the most, so pay close attention to what you read next:Read more

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo is proud to announce the 2015 Screaming Mi Mi Award winners. With hundreds of entries the winners were selected by blind taste test by New Yorks finest and brightest in the culinary industry. The panel consisted of chefs from FOX, CBS and Food Networks, Food Critics from NYC Newspapers, Bloggers, Magazines, Hot Sauce Retailers, Wholesalers and some of NYC’s Top Chefs. The Screaming Mi Mi Awards have been creating a large industry buzz within the Hot Sauce Community. Past winners have received features on TV, magazines, newspapers creating a profile that has lead for their product distributed by wholesalers and national retail outlets.
The Screaming Mi Mi Awards were presented in front of the media and live audience on Saturday April 24th at the 3rd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo. This was a year to remember with some amazing highlights. CaJohn’s took the Three-Peat in the Louisiana Style Hot Sauce with their Firehouse Hot Sauce, Defcon Sauces took the first ever sweep in Screaming Mi Mi history collecting 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the Chicken Wing category and Brooklyn newcomer Queen Majesty took 2 Screaming Mi Mi’s in the Jalapeno and All Natural categories. It was a tightly scored competition and the winners are very much deserved.

Just in case you did not notice the Ticklemaster part of the above ticket, it is fake. There is no ticket for $499.99, so please do not panic! The time to panic is when you enter one of the many scheduled events at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo. Such as the Puckerbutt Guinness Book of World Records Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper pepper eating record for 1 minute. A slight change from last year’s 3 pepper eating and done display. That will end the show on Sunday.
Then there is our 3rd Annual Fiery Pizza Eating Contest co-sponsored with our friends at Volcanic Peppers and the infamous Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. Each contestant will get a Volcanically Enhanced Grimaldi’s pizza that they have to eat in a pre-determined amount of time. The first one finished or eats the most will be declared the winner and get this beautiful trophy…Read more
The list for the winners was a copy and paste from what was posted on Facebook. Chile Pepper Magazine was nice enough to send me the results, but in a format I could not use, so I did what I could do to present you with the list of winners. Please forgive me for any spelling mistakes. If you need to have me correct anything, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your corrections, and I will get to it as soon as I can. Congrats to all the companies that won or placed in these prestigious awards. Keep up the good and spicy work folks!Read more

Another huge thank you goes out to our own Ken Alexander of www.FieryWorld.com for formatting the results for us. Kudos to you both. I want to also congratulate all the winners and thank all the entries for supporting these great awards. It is very hard to not only put on a 1st year event, but also bring in a whole new award to the community. Dana has worked hard on this event, and we here at ILIS hope it is a very successful show for the ages. Much success to all the vendors and sponsors who are putting in their trust in Dana.
