Top 10 Best-Selling Snacks & Sweets for 2011

Dave's Insanity Popcorn
If March Madness has you searching for zesty snacks to enjoy while watching your favorite team, look no further than our list of the top ten best-selling snacks and sweets for 2011 at the Carolina Sauce Company.  Unfortunately our top-seller is indefinitely unavailable due to production changes at the manufacturer in Australia, but there's still plenty to choose from on the list, and additional tasty choices on our Snacks page.

1. Buderim Ginger Bears: These Australian gummy bears are made with real ginger for a zippy, snappy flavor that's not too sweet and has that trademark ginger "bite." Sadly, the manufacturer is not currently producing the popular 12oz bags that became our best-selling snack. We hope to be able to offer whatever new ginger gummy products they produce in the future.

Deano's Cheddar Jalapeno Chips2. Dave's Insanity Popcorn: If you're addicted to super-spicy fiery foods, this is the popcorn for you. Generously seasoned with the "dry" version of Dave's Insanity Sauce, Insanity Popcorn is a LOT hotter than any spicy popcorn you'll find in a grocery store.  Not for the faint of tongue, Dave's Insanity Popcorn pops in the microwave and is best served with a large frosty beverage to cool off the burn.

3. Deano's Cheddar Jalapeno Chips: Made from thinly-sliced jalapeno peppers instead of potatoes, these jalapeno chips are a great low-carb crunchy snack with a feisty peppery burn and rich cheesy flavor. If you like jalapeno poppers or crunchy cheddar snacks that are spicy, you'll love Deano's Cheddar Jalapeno Chips.

Ass Kickin' Jelly Beans
4. Ass Kickin' Jelly Beans: Don't let their innocent appearance fool you--these are NOT your kids' jelly beans!  Sure, they start off sweet like ordinary jelly beans, but when you least expect it, BAM! the habanero heat strikes.  Take these habanero-spiked jelly beans to work and your desktop candy bowl will never be raided again.

5. Toad Sweat Dessert Hot Sauce mini-4-pack: Enjoy all four award-winning dessert hot sauces from Toad Sweat with this gift pack.  These groundbreaking sauces blend sweet fruit with fiery peppers in a dessert sauce base to add uniquely delicious spicy flavor to cheesecake, bread pudding, ice cream, pound cake, brownies, lemon bars, cobblers, and even hot cereal or pancakes. They come in Lemon Vanilla, Key Lime, Chocolate Orange and Cranberry.

6. Deano's Ranch Jalapeno Chips: Similar to the cheddar jalapeno chips but coated with tangy buttermilk Ranch instead of cheddar cheese, Deano's Ranch Jalapeno Chips are a tasty low-carb alternative to potato chips and other high-carb crunchy snacks. Moderately spicy, it's easy to eat an entire bag in one sitting.

Toad Sweat Cranberry Dessert Hot Sauce
7. Toad Sweat Cranberry Dessert Hot Sauce: This is the most popular flavor of Toad Sweat Dessert Hot Sauces, probably because it's the most versatile. In addition to tasting great on cheesecake, ice cream, pancakes and other desserts or breakfast fare, this Cranberry hot sauce also pairs nicely with turkey or chicken (roasted, baked, grilled, smoked or cold cuts) as well as pork chops, medallions and other pork dishes.

8. Wasabi Bombs (wasabi peanuts): Similar to wasabi peas but made with peanuts instead, Wasabi Bombs pack a powerful, sinus-clearing horseradish punch.  The crunchy green outer shell delivers the intense wasabi flavor, and inside you'll find a premium peanut for a complementary contrast in flavor and texture.

9. Blair's Original Death Beef Jerky: Folks who like beef jerky and spicy foods love this fiery, chewy snack.  Real dried beef is seasoned with the infamous Blair's Original Death hot sauce for unparalleled heat and that unmistakable Blair's flavor.

Blair's Death Rain Habanero Potato Chips
10. Blair's Death Rain Habanero Potato Chips: These kettle-cooked potato chips are seasoned with Blair's Death Rain habanero BBQ rub for a fiery-hot & tangy habanero barbecue flavor.  Spicy potato chips never tasted so good--or burned so hot!

Zestfully yours,
