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. Sorry this video is so long, but you know me, I can’t shut up! Thanks for your time and I wish everyone a very happy holiday season and a prosperous and loving New Year.

    Holy Moley – I’m both shocked and honored.

    This is the kind of thing that will push me to make better and better products so that I can live up to this award. I’m very grateful Al – it will hold a place of honor in my home.

    Al, I want to thank you for the honor of our sauce. You have always been an objective voice for us to bounce ideas off of and many of your comments have gone into the final product. We value your opinion and effort for the spicy food industry. Keep up the good work. See you at North Market.

    My thanks goes out to Al “the Buddah Man” and the rest of the gang at I Love It Spicy. I just got the word from Al on the awards. I want to congratulate all of the winners of this great Lenny Award. This is what makes it worth while to get a product out to the people who enjoy the heat.I hope to get to meet all of you through our travels in the Sauce world.
    Thanks to all of you, and have a Happy and safe Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

    Congrats, Scott! Buddah needs the Pink, Purple and Black labels!

  • December 20, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    High praise from Buddah, Sam! Burnin’ Love will be in our Week of Wings V for sure.

  • December 20, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    Still one of the best of the best Jay-Bird!

    Great job, Buddah! You really do your research, compile your notes and present a well thought out overview of the past year’s products. I enjoyed watching… I even made it to the end! LOL.

    Seriously, I’m already clicking to buy a few sauces based on your Lenny Awards.

    Nice presentation, although I missed seeing each and every bottle, like you did last year. But this video made for a more fluid (and shorter) viewing experience.

    Great job and congrats to all the winners and mentions!

    Thanks much Brian. I did not have all the bottles, as I have polished off a lot of hot sauce this year, not having to do many reviews. I am still trying to catch up from 2012’s Black Friday sale. I hope you plan on coming to the North Market Show this year. You will love the foodie aspect of the weekend.

  • December 22, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Thanks Brian

    I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a fun and prosperous

  • December 22, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    New Year. Sorry, I published accidentally before I was finished.
    Thanks Brian

    Well my ears are bleeding but it was worth it!! Hmmm why was I compelled to say that? lol!! I’m definitely going to try some of these products, well done Al!

  • January 7, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    It’s a good thing that Al was blessed with a heart as big as his mouth!! I enjoyed it as well..cheers!

  • January 7, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    Cap’n T!!! So good to hear from you. I hope you and the family are well. I really miss the TTF Krewe. I really appreciate the kind words. At least most of them. 😛 Be well.

  • January 9, 2014 at 10:48 am

    Nice job Al, hope you all had a great holiday.

  • January 9, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Baconboy! I so miss you guys. We need to get back to TN and rent cabins again. Salsa rematch!

  • January 9, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    Whats a nice guy like you doing in a place like this? Does it smell like bacon here or is it just me?

  • January 9, 2014 at 8:08 pm

    That’s good. I am getting by. I wish I was married with little chileheads running along, but such is life at the moment. Isn’t it about time we planned another TN outing with the O.G. Krewe. I just was told that Parker is traveling to the Columbus, OH North Market Festival for the 1st time this year. It is President’s Day Weekend. Hijack DK, make him drive and join in on the fun. It is a very fun weekend.

  • January 9, 2014 at 8:09 pm

    Once it gets in the walls, it is hard to remove that pig candy stench. 😀

  • January 14, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    LOL… Tracy and Al good to hear from you both…. we do need to catch up sometime. Miss the old days, well some of them 🙂
    pass on the slsa rematch, but could go for a go-cart re-match.
    Met up with Bret in Cincy was good to see him.

  • January 14, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Well you could come to the North Market Festival. Parker is coming and we are working on Ed. Then there is Open Fields, the last weekend of September which would be an ideal spot.

  • January 16, 2014 at 12:06 am

    I think Ed is coming. I made him a offer he couldnt refuse.

    What’s shakin Blane and Tracy?? Damn where’s DV, Huv, Ed, Kristy, Lisa, Doug, Uncle Big, Danny Cash, Cajohn, MSK, Bret and Arizona Jack?

  • January 21, 2014 at 11:47 am
