One beautiful spring day in 1995, a young mama planted a pepper seed in her pretty backyard garden.
Some TLC and a few days later, that little seed started to grow–And grow, and grow, and grow...
IT ALL STARTED
GOT A LITTLE FRISKY IN THE KITCHEN
Late summer came in HOT, and so did those chilis. That little seed must have produced 10 pounds of peppers that year. John Sr. (home chef) looked to his wife and young son one afternoon and said, "We're going to make some sauce!".
The first batch of
NOTSO® circa 1995
THE GIFT OF FLAVOR
And boy, did we make some sauce! So much, in fact, that we knew we had to share. That holiday season we gave all our friends and family a bottle. They loved it so much the requests for more came pouring in. That year, the gift of flavor was born–spreading smiles like mild fire.
We believe in great sauce and even greater soul. That's why a portion of the proceeds from every bottle goes to World Central Kitchen Organization so we can help fill as many hungry bellies as we can.
What is life without laughter? It's our joy bringing saucey smiles to your faces. Life can be too serious sometimes–we believe in doing our best to make it finger-licking fun. So slap some sauce on that snack and have a good time.
For 25 years we've shared the love and happiness that comes with full bellies around friends. It's our mission to keep this special sauce in your suppers and snacks for decades to come.
IT'S A FAMILY KIND OF FEELING
We believe that sharing the wealth, the food (or at least the sauce on it), and above all–the love. We make food happy to make you, and as many others as we can, happy–everyday!
