Lenny Awards – Best Spicy Products of 2016

2013 Best of the Year Lenny Award

 

Welcome to the 7th Annual Lenny Awards for the best new spicy products. Some of these awards are for the best products our review teams encountered and gave the highest ratings for. Most of them are from my encounters from fiery food events, purchased online or perhaps found along the way in many journeys to and fro. The Lenny Award is named after my Father who died of Cancer on this very day back in 2010. Rather than mourn his death, I am here to celebrate his life and how he would help total strangers in need just because he could. I am trying to do the same with the Lenny Award by given something from my heart to an industry and community that I love. The Lenny is given to my favorite new products and there is no other factor involved in my choice. I don’t get a chance to try everything in due time, so some of these products might be older than 2016 when I first got a chance to try them. I have listed the names of the companies below the video that either received a Lenny Award or got an honorable mention. If you do not want to view that spoiler list, go watch the video and enjoy the moment there.

The Lenny Awards have not been purchased yet, as I will need some of the addresses of the companies I will not see at the NYC Hot Sauce Expo come April. Those companies that attend that great event will have them presented by me in person. Those that do not, will get them mailed directly to whatever address you provide me with. The video is long as I ramble a lot and I try to give each product I mention their due. The addresses below are there for a reason. I hope you will give some thought into purchasing a few of these winners. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Besides, it is the holiday season and some of these fine artisan products might still be on sale.

Thank you for your time and congratulations to all the fiery product makers for making such flavorful and delicious food enhancements.

Lenny Awards – Best Spicy Products of 2014

2011 Lenny Award

Welcome to the 5th Annual Lenny Awards. The Lenny Award is dedicated to my late Father, Leonard Goldenberg who died on the 19th of December in 2010. My Dad gave selflessly to help people whenever he could, and this heart award represents the love I had for him. So each year I give out the Lenny Award in his name to my favorite products and to the best reviewed products for the year. No one helps in the decision making and it is a surprise I reveal to the world with the video below, and none of the product makers have a clue that they are getting this accolade.

Best Spicy Products of 2013- 4th Annual Lenny Awards

2013 Best of the Year Lenny Award

On December 19th, 2010, my father, Leonard “Lenny” Goldenberg passed away from a horrible fight with Cancer. At the time of his death I was to introduce a new award for best new spicy products for 2010. I thought it was fitting that I name the award after my Dad who in life was a very giving person, and in his memory I share these same values. I have 10 Lenny Awards to award, and have some other products that I will also give honorable mention to. The companies listed below the video are not necessary award winners, but they all deserve kudos for what they do. I hope in doing these awards I can shine a spotlight onto these fine spicy product makers. I urge those people out there that want to show some support, to do so and give these companies a little help this holiday season with a purchase. I love this community and I hope I can turn you onto some great products out there. Thanks for your time and I wish everyone a very happy holiday season and a prosperous and loving New Year.
