Food industry analyst and trend-watcher Phil Lempert of SupermarketGuru.com, a leading internet food & health resource, recently declared Cackalacky Spice Sauce to be "a hit." Born in Chapel Hill, NC, Cackalacky is an award-winning all-natural sauce, zesty dressing, dip, and all-purpose topping that's made with sweet potatoes and other ingredients not typically found in hot sauces. The texture is thicker and richer than that of ordinary vinegar hot sauces, and the feisty flavor delivers layers of savory complexity with earthy, subtly sweet notes.
In his weekly online Supermarket Guru video product review, Lempert said of Cackalacky: "This product is a HIT! This is not your typical hot sauce and not just because of the name. The third ingredient is actually sweet potato and along with the honey, apple cider wine, molasses and key lime juice it has a terrific balance between sweet and spicy. One teaspoon is just 5 calories, contains no fat and 65mg of sodium. Unlike many other hot sauces that just want to make it as hot as possible to burn your mouth, this one is designed to enrich the foods that you use it with, not hide their flavor."
This is high praise indeed: In addition to being the founder of SupermarketGuru.com, Lempert is also the food trends editor and correspondent for NBC News’ "Today" show, and makes monthly appearances on ABC’s "The View." He also has appeared numerous times on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "20/20," CNN, CNBC, Discovery Health and MSNBC, as well as on local television morning and news programs throughout the country.
