Big John's Famous Key West Hot Sauce: Sad News

I learned some sad news today: The maker of Big John's Famous Key West Hot Sauces has discontinued the original, Blue Label recipe and will no longer be manufacturing it. Bottled by hand in small batches and bearing a homestyle label with the trademark pirate, Big John's Famous Key West Blue Hot Sauce was beloved by many who had the joy of finding it in Key West and splashing it on conch fritters, stone crab, and other tropical fare as well as everyday foods like burgers, fries, sandwiches, and more. Made in the Caribbean style with a carrot and vinegar base plus scotch bonnet peppers for heat, Big John's Key West Hot Sauce stood apart from the competition by using hot pickled carrots plus red capsicum peppers, resulting in a full-bodied, tangy hot sauce with great flavor and just the right medium burn to please most palates. Big John's Hot Sauces have always been hard to find outside Key West, Florida, but we always made sure to have plenty at the Carolina Sauce Company online store for all the folks who wanted to enjoy it at home after visiting Key West. Sadly, we're down to our last 6 bottles of Big John's Famous Key West Blue Hot Sauce, so don't delay in getting some for yourself because once these bottles are gone, this hot sauce will be history.

Zestfully yours,
