Why Hot Sauce Is The Perfect Present For This Valentine’s Day

Today is February 14th…a day set aside for lovers. Most Casanovas will opt for flowers and chocolate and fancy dinners and such, but there are credible reasons why hot sauce should be their go-to present if they really want to make an impression. Here’s why:

      1. Be Different…Be Special


Think about how many other people are giving their lovers flowers and chocolate. They picked you because you’re different and that’s what makes you special, so why are you going with the herd and getting them the same thing everyone else is giving theirs? Show them you think outside the box and they will love and appreciate you even more.

      2. Spice Things Up


Don’t be the guy who gets accused of never spicing things up. Hot Sauce is virtually THE thing to spice up anything…there is absolutely no limits to what hot sauce can spice up so grab a bottle and watch you be the envy of everyone who gave the usual boring flowers and candy.

      3. Show Your Sensitive Side

It’s been proven that a little sensitivity goes a long way. Put a little more than you can normally handle and watch as you reap the returns. As a bonus, let them pick a movie and put some hot sauce on your side of the popcorn bowl and you’ll score major points.

      4. Give a Gift That Lasts

Flowers wilt within days. Chocolate goes bad after a few weeks. Hot sauce lasts for years. You can spice things for her even when Valentine’s Day is long gone. Same as showing her your sensitive side. Just don’t overdo that last one…or overdo it, it’s your life and you can cry whenever you want to.

      5. Give a Gift with Versatility

The versatility of hot sauce is unimaginable, especially if you’re about to land in the doghouse. Need to show how sorry you are, eat a teaspoonful and watch the tears and running nose do most of the work for you. Those flowers and chocolate you gave last Valentine’s Day won’t do that for you. You might need to buy new ones but even that isn’t guaranteed. Nothing says “I’m really sorry” than tears and sniffles, and hot sauce has your back on that. You can also use it to make a spicy morning adult beverage later on. Don’t want to share your food? Sprinkle on there. Want protection against bears when you go on a romantic hike? Okay, maybe it won’t protect against bears but it will do the other stuff.

     6. It Won’t Break Your Bank

Flowers and candy are too expensive to give every week let alone every day. Not so with hot sauce. You can use the money you saved to book that romantic getaway, buy the house of your dreams, and do other stuff you’ve always wanted to do as a couple.

     7. It’s Healthy

Some people are allergic to flowers. Chocolate will add a few inches to waists. Hot sauce can be healthy and can help get rid of those inches. Just remember to choose one that’s made from natural ingredients.

      8. It’s Memorable

Years from today, they will remember the Valentine’s Day you gave them hot sauce, and it will be a fond memory. They might even ask you why you never kept up your creativity, but we’re not worried about you if you’re creative enough to go for the hot sauce…we know you know how to keep things spiced up.

So, you be the judge, and, whatever you reach for today, we wish you all a happy lovers’ day.



Segen Sauce Feedback

We have received a lot of feedback from people who have tried Segen Sauce and it’s been humbling and, truly, an honor to see people taking time out of their schedules to share their reactions, input, and suggestions with us. There is a few things we’re concerned about when we ask people what they think about Segen Sauce, but the things we pay special attention to slightly more than the rest is input about the level of heat, the flavor, and how it interacts with the flavor of whichever food they were having. These three are at the core of why this sauce was created in the first place and the answers let us know about its potential appeal to the hot sauce consumer market.

The consensus is that the sauce is definitely hot. There’s no lack of fire. It is hot for normal people, and those who like Carolina Reaper heat will find that it still stimulates the taste buds enough to make you feel it. The actual heat that one experiences depends on how much sauce one uses and how much food it is being mixed with. So the heat level aspect is good across the board.

As far as the flavor and how it interacts with the flavors of other foods, Segen is meant to be flavorful without being overpowering. If you’re eating an omelet it means you want to taste and enjoy its flavors from whatever ingredients you have in there. Segen Sauce wasn’t designed to go on your plate and add extra salty, smoky, garlicky, or any other flavor that masks your food’s own flavors. What we are finding is all tasters find that Segen Sauce won’t indeed overpower the food’s flavors. Some, however, want, and expect, the sauce to give them an extra flavor effect. Even though the numbers were few (less than 2 out of 58 tasters), our sample size was also small and that represented about 3.5%, which translates into a huge number if you consider the whole hot sauce market.

We looked at several options and changing the sauce itself wasn’t considered because it’s still overwhelmingly liked the way it is, but we chose to add other sauces that might use peppers with more overwhelming flavors. Segen Sauce Cae, which uses cayenne peppers and is less spicy but has a more distinct flavor, will be available in a matter of weeks. It, like the original Segen Sauce, won’t completely overpower your food’s flavors, however. We understand you can’t be everything to everyone- and we’re not trying to be- but it helps us plan for future sauces that would hit segments of the consumer market that are not reached by our current line of sauces. We really appreciate the reception Segen Sauce has gotten so far and look forward to any feedback you can give us that will help us bring sauces that you want and like.

Some of the feedback we’ve received:

“We loved the sauce!!!”

“Wow!!! That s**t is nuclear!”

“Congratulations on your delicious hot sauce. I just had some black eyed peas but they tasted so much better with your sauce. I think it’s a hit, I love it, and I totally would buy more.”

“It’s hot and it’s a hit here so far.”
