Drop By On Christmas Eve

Hey all,

Since Christmas  falls on a Sunday this year, Christmas Eve will be Saturday and we are going to be open regular hours. Since we know everyone will be in the holiday spirit, we are going to have a lot of goodies and snacks here in the store that afternoon.  So, if you happen to be in downtown Friday Harbor to look at the lights and capture the feeling of our small town, drop by the Hot Shop and check out our ghost fudge (yep, it will have the ghost pepper in it) and some other treats we are planning.  Don't think that everything in our store is over the top with heat because if you know us, you know that it's more about the flavor than it is the heat.  Of course we have extreme heat products, but we love changing peoples minds who come in and say "I just can't eat hot stuff".  Once we educate people to let them know about the health benefits, they get hooked.  We've converted a lot of people who swear they hate the hot stuff and they are now some of our Chilihead followers.  We have dessert hot sauces as well.  Toad Sweat has a chocolate orange, lemon vanilla, cranberry and key lime flavors. Yummy on a good vanilla bean ice cream.

Anyway, keep us in mind if you happen to be in downtown Friday Harbor on Christmas Eve.  Drop by in the afternoon and share the holidays with us and try some of the goodies! If we aren't fortunate enough to see you, we wish you all a safe and magical holiday with families and friends.

Christmas Ideas!

Happy early December everyone from Gilligan's Island North,

Just wanted to send out a reminder that even though you may not be able get to the shop to do your Christmas shopping, we have some great ideas on our website.  Our custom label program has gone nuts and we're having so much fun creating personalized labels for every occasion.   We have done some comical labels from grandkids to grandparents and for people giving customized bottles instead of Christmas cards alone, they send them a custom bottle as their card and gift all in one. You can send us a high quaility .jpg and think of a caption. We'll make up a proof and e-mail it back to you. We work with you to get the label just the way you want it. You can do 1 or 2 bottles at a time, or inquire on quantity discounts.
We also have our Hot Sauce of the Month Club which is very popular with people all across the country. Each month we send out 2 bottles of hot sauce (hand picked by Ed of course) and we include recipe ideas. We mix it up every once in a while and include a rub or other product we think our customers need to know about.  All the details of both of these programs are available on our website or feel free to shoot us an e-mail or give us a call.

Wishing you and yours a very happy and stress free holiday season.
