Where Has March Gone

Wicked Cactus Logo
Wow, what a wild month March has been.  Sorry it's been so long since the last blog but we're busy shopping and placing orders for the upcoming season and boy have we got some great new products coming.  We're stocking up on the Z and Z World Famous Honey Company products of course plus Danny Cash's product line which has grown bigger too! There is a whole new product line from "Wicked Cactus" we're bringing in. They sent us samples and these are fantastic sauces. Great labels too! If your a member of the Hot Sauce of the Month Club, you can be sure we'll be sending these out in the coming months.

For those of you who enjoy our silly T-Shirts, we're ordering those too! We love this time of year when we can stock our shelves in anticipation of our summer Chilihead visitors.   As you all know, we sample our sauces every day and can't wait to see our tried and true visitors and the new victims we'll convert into Chiliheads.  Our Chilihead wall of pictures is growing!

As we head into April, we wish you all warmer weather and all the beauty Spring brings.

On to March!

Tiki torch waiting for Spring!
Happy End to February All,

It seems this fall/winter season has lasted forever this year. Even though we had a lot more sunny days at the end of January and beginning of February, it was cold and boy are we paying the price now with all the snow. We're coming out of the deep freeze however the news still shows snow in some of the lowlands. It's been fun but we are ready for Spring and seeing the tourists again. It's always so much fun in the shop when it's busy and we get people taste testing.  Foot traffic is starting to increase which is a sign of the fun to come. Hope you all get a chance to visit this season as we love to see our favorite Chiliheads and look forward to recruiting a new group too! There will be a lot of new products this year and of course our favorite producers have been working on new concoctions over the winter months. Stinger X from the Z and Z Honey Company is one of our favorite new products and Danny Cash has been busy in the kitchen as well.  On to March and dreams of warm boating weather!
