Ottawa, KS (PRWEB) December 9, 2005
Results of the 2006 Scovie Awards, which recognizes top fiery foods products from around the globe, are in, and MyHotSauces.Com L.L.C. of Ottawa, KS was named among the winners. MyHotSauces.Com L.L.C., which manufactures gourmet hot sauces and picante sauces has received three 2006 Scovie Award(s). In the industry’s most rigorous blind tastings, a panel of the country’s top culinary experts sampled hundreds of the world’s most lauded gourmet foods, and the top scoring products each won a coveted Scovie banner.
The MyHotSauces.Com L.L.C. winning products are:
Monty’s Party Picante – Black Beans & Corn Chipotle – First Place
Monty’s Party Picante – Medium Hot – Second Place
Monty’s Party Picante – Chipotle – Third Place
Over 600 products from around the world competed for top honors. The Scovie Awards were created by Dave DeWitt, publisher of Fiery-Foods & BBQ Magazine and founder of the National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show. The awards are named for Wilbur Scoville, who pioneered a rating scale for spicy foods, and have become the industry standard for excellence in over 60 categories of fiery foods.
Dave DeWitt, dubbed by the New York Times as the “Pope of Peppers” and the author of over 30 books on fiery cuisine, noted, “For nearly three decades, I have researched and written about every aspect of the fiery foods industry. When we began, people in this country were only vaguely aware of any types of peppers. Now, food consumers can really distinguish the flavors of chipotle and habanero, and they know the difference between a Louisiana-style hot sauce and a Caribbean-style. This year, our winners represent companies from 33 states and five countries. This year’s Scovie winners truly exemplify the diversity and quality of this industry.”
Many of the Scovie award winning products, as well as thousands of other products, will be available to both trade buyers and consumers at the 17th Annual National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show, March 3-5 in Albuquerque, NM.
