Stonewall Kitchen Ghost Pepper Jelly

We traditionally think of jelly as the gentle brother to papa peanut butter. But this ain't your friendly jelly. It lurks like a ghost in an abandoned flavor mansion, ready to strike fear into the hearts of spice loving buds young and old. Spread on cheese, toast, or chicken to infuse them with power. πŸ™Œ

Queen Majesty Hot Sauce Sampler

You and your bud find yourselves stranded deep in the jungle, fighting for survival.

Out of the brush, 3 magical creatures greet you: the Jalapeno Tequila and Lime 🐍, the Scotch Bonnet and Ginger πŸ†, and the Red Habanero and Black Coffee 🐺. They leave you with 3 bottles of their essence. Your taste buds are saved.

Jacobsen Spicy Salt Trio

Is it a coincidence that there are three spicy salts in this set; the same number of heads on Cerberus, the dog-monster guarding the gates of Hades? We think not. Spice up your meats and veggies carefully, friends, or do so at your own peril.

Secret Aardvark Sauce Sampler

The hottest thing to emerge from Portland since Carrie Brownstein discovered sketch comedy, this trio of infernal sauces will inject a little pep into any spice-loving friend's step.

Our favorite? The ambrosial Aardvark Habanero Sauce: tangy, Tex-Mexy, with a dash of Caribbean panache, and just mellow enough to splash on anything and everything. The addiction is real. πŸŒΆπŸ’‰
