Product News: Cholula Teams Up With All-Star Pitcher Noah Syndergaard to Celebrate Fans and Release New Limited Edition Flavor



Exclusive Fans-Only Community, “Order of Cholula”, features remarkable fan stories and other unique opportunities to get closer to the brand

Jersey City, NJ [June 8, 2017] – For countless fans, Cholula®, the hot sauce with the iconic wooden cap, is far more than “just another hot sauce.” It’s an ongoing inspiration and constant companion to their personal passions. This cult-like devotion has been integral to Cholula’s rapid growth and with the help of All-Star pitcher Noah Syndergaard, the brand is thanking fans for their support by launching the “Order of Cholula,” a digital homage to its most loyal supporters and releasing a new Limited Edition flavor, Sweet Habanero.

The first person to join the Order of Cholula is Noah Syndergaard. Known for his on-field prowess and flavorful character, Noah shares his love for Cholula by headlining a recruitment-style video debuting today at www.OrderofCholula.com. The captivating short film features inspiring stories of real Cholula fans who credit the role the flavorful hot sauce plays in their lives – including Syndergaard himself. The video encourages viewers to join Noah and other flavor-seeking zealots by applying for admittance into this members-only club by sharing their Order-worthy stories of Cholula devotion.

“Cholula is a part of my life – whether it’s the morning before a game, in an after-game meal or during an off day, it’s a brand with a personality I’m naturally drawn to,” said Syndergaard. “Having grown up in Texas I’ve tried all the hot sauces. Cholula is not about simply delivering heat, it’s about bringing a unique flavor and attitude, which really mirrors how I try to live on and off the field.”

Once accepted into the Order of Cholula, members gain further access to content, including the inspiring full stories of the film’s feature fans, exclusive discounts, merchandise and first access to a new, fan-inspired limited edition flavor – Sweet Habanero which will have a small-batch run of 1,000 bottles. Cholula revealed the small batch run today to coincide with and commemorate the launch of the “Order of Cholula.”  The newest flavor was developed to answer the cry of fans looking for a hot and spicy flavorful Habanero and will not yet be available for retail sale.  The Limited Edition Sweet Habanero has hints of pineapple, garlic and spices and best compliments dishes like fish, chicken and soups. It joins Cholula’s existing flavor line-up of Original, Green Pepper, Chipotle, Chili Lime and Chili Garlic.

“Our fans are incredibly loyal and have demonstrated their dedication in creatively fanatical ways,” said Sharon Nevins, Head of Brand Marketing at the Cholula Food Company. “They are the reason we’ve become the most-loved hot sauce brand, and why we continue to outpace the category. The Order of Cholula is our way of celebrating them, thanking them, and empowering them to be an even more influential and authentic voice of our brand.”

It is our mission to create a company that contributes to the community through not only the creation of healthy and nutritious products, but also by giving people jobs, purchasing local goods and supporting local retailers with affordable prices so they can continue to profitably provide healthy, organic and local products to our neighbors.

We are often asked what BAO stands for.  In Chinese, BAO means “precious treasure” which is what we strive to deliver with each batch of our kombucha. BAO is also acronym for our company name, Bad Ass Organics (with a name like Bad Ass Organics, of course we got our start in Hell's Kitchen) . We salute everyone with the bad ass attitude to commit to living a healthy life (a.k.a., a bad ass) and reject the constant barrage of advertisements promoting the sweet tasting food and drinks that are horrible for ourselves and our families.

The bad ass carves his or her own path.  He/she wears, drives, drinks, watches, and listens to what he/she chooses, when he/she chooses, where he/she chooses, uninfluenced by fads or advertising campaigns.  Bad ass style is understated, but instantly recognizable: simple, direct, and functional.  Be a bad ass.  Drink kombucha.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Fix Hot Sauce – Small Batch Lemongrass Sriracha




How Fix Hot Sauce Started

Our Fix journey started with a life changing trip to Vietnam. First hand, we tasted the difference that authentic, farm-fresh, and non processed goodness made. Our minds were blown. From here, we made it our mission to bottle the premium bold flavors of South Asia and share it with everyone back home.

We used to be interested in average bowls of pho served with your average hot sauce. We want more. And you deserve more. Fix was born to bring the best damn hot sauce to America.


About Us

The Co-Founders with Head Chef Dave Miller from Portage Bay

We are Johnny, Jennifer, Alex and David, the Co-founders of Fix Hot Sauce. Fix is a small company based out of Seattle consisting of family and high school friends. We launched a year ago with our first product, the original Fix Sriracha Hot Sauce. Using only the five purest ingredients we were able to set a new standard for sriracha. Our original sauce is composed of bold flavors, balanced heat and contains no preservatives, nitrates or fillers. We pride ourselves in making clean all natural products to fit our healthy lifestyles while satisfying our passion for spice.



Fix Lemongrass Sriracha

Fix Hot Sauce's newest endeavor is to marry the bold ethos of our original sauce, married with the brightness of citrus and lemongrass. In our mad scientist experimentations, we've found the right blend of flavors that we think hot sauce aficionados will love!

First, we want to say that creating a small batch sauce wasn't our intention. As we experimented with our organic green chili peppers through our fermentation and blending process, we found we needed the greater control exercised when hand mixing the ingredients. Our smaller batches yielded a nuanced flavor profile that brought a gigantic smile to our faces. We refuse to make compromises on taste -- We owe it to our fans, and hot sauce lovers all over, to serve this sauce in the purest and tastiest form - and our Small Batch Lemongrass Sriracha was born!


All Natural Ingredients: Green Organic Peppers, Lemongrass, Lemon, Garlic, Sea Salt, Cane Sugar and Rice Vinegar.

All Natural Ingredients: Green Organic Peppers, Lemongrass, Lemon, Garlic, Sea Salt, Cane Sugar and Rice Vinegar.

Our original sauce is continuing to win fans all across the country, including some of the most prominent and competitive markets. We created our Lemongrass Sriracha to share another bold sauce they're sure to love, and to show our fans our Fix's hot sauce obsession is just getting started!

We want to bring our newest creation to market, and we need your help. We've found our special organic green chili pepper in Vietnam, and are in the process of securing a batch of this limited harvest for these one-of-a-kind peppers. Our plan is to ferment and blend our sauce, bottle it in our proprietary Fix bottles, and bring it on home for everyone!


Fix Hot Sauce's Sriracha Family


What funds will be used for

The main purpose for raising these funds is to bring our small batch of Fix Lemongrass Sriracha to market, and to the homes of hot sauce lovers everywhere.

1. Deliver to our Kickstarter backers our sauce and swag!

2. Target the online market. We refuse to compromise on taste - As our supply isn't large enough to fulfill retailers, our plan is to target online sales through a revamped website, digital outreach, and online advertisement.

3. Breakdown on how funds will be used:

  • Pay farmers for peppers.
  • Secure factory capacity and manpower necessary to produce the sauce.
  • Create a new bottle mold for our smaller version of our original bottle
  • Packaging
  • Labels and Nutrition facts
  • Shipping
  • Order more bottles at a time to drive costs down.
  • Target online market - Website updates to show new product.
  • Marketing - Trade shows, distributors, restaurants, and groceries. We want to convert more hot sauce lovers to Fix!

Condiment Spotlight: Sosu Barrel Aged Sriracha Sauce


Aged in whiskey barrels for a unique fruity, spicy, and smoky flavor. You’ve never tasted sriracha quite like this before.

We combined our philosophy of using fresh, locally sourced ingredients with the age-old craft of fermentation. We age our secret pepper mash in whiskey barrels for between 1-3 months. The sriracha takes on complex flavors from the oak barrels and the natural fermentation process. Absolutely no preservatives or additives go into our sriracha. Each bottle is handcrafted and made in small batches to ensure the most intense flavors.

Our ingredients are simple: chili peppers, brown sugar, garlic, and salt. No potassium sorbate or Sodium Bisulfite.



When we tasted the first batch of our Barrel-Aged Sriracha, we knew we were onto something big. The flavors are spicy, fruity, and had a lingering smokiness from the oak barrels. It is Sriracha, but one that we’ve never tasted quite like this before.

About the Company
KANKUN® Mexican Sauces uses a secret recipe guarded fervently by generations of grandmas, aunties, and mamas from the Cardenas family.

KANKUN® Mexican Sauces are not only Mexican by name, this is the closest you will get to a home-made, traditional chilli sauce found only at the most authentic of Mexican family gatherings and Rolando Cardenas.

Rolando Cardenas, the magical power behind the sauce, learned the art of the perfect chilli mix by sneaking into the kitchen at family dinners and watching, tasting and smelling the age-old recipes that sit at the heart of his family’s tradition.

The steaming hot kitchens were full of stories, gossip and laughter, and little Rolando soaked up the tricks and secrets of the sauces. He then replicated them a thousand times until they were as good as those from his childhood.

His sauces were first served at his famous ‘fiestas’ that featured wielding luchadores, yelping mariachis and the most kicking Mexican food in town. Friends would leave Rolando’s house begging to take home a dollop of his home made chilli sauce that tasted so good and became so popular that Rolando decided to make it possible for all and launched KANKUN® Mexican Sauces that now graces your table.
