Carolina Sauce Newsletter: A Free Valentine Gift for You!

Receive a FREE 10oz jar of our delicious farm-made Pepper Jelly, plus another free little surprise gift, as our Valentine's Day gifts to you! Simply order $20 or more in products at the Carolina Sauce Company online store and include a jar of pepper jelly in your order, then enter the coupon code Heart2011Blog when you order online, or mention the coupon when ordering by phone. This coupon is good only through Valentine's Day and will expire on Monday February 14, 2011.

Is Hot Sauce an Aphrodisiac?

Many cultures throughout history have believed that hot and spicy foods, especially chili peppers, are aphrodisiacs, probably because of the "rush" or "burn" one experiences from eating hot peppers, and possibly also due to the shape and red color of certain chilies. Scientific studies now suggest that there may be some truth to this belief because eating spicy foods stimulates the release of endorphins. Here are five other legendary aphrodisiacs that just might light your (or your loved one's) fire this Valentine's Day:

1. Raw oysters on the half-shell, especially with a dash of your favorite hot sauce -- a staff favorite here is Blues Habanero Reserve

2. Chocolate, whether eaten as dessert or enjoyed as a beverage. The Mayans spiked their hot cocoa with chilies for added effect. For a uniquely delicious blend of sweet chocolate and spicy heat, drizzle some Toad Sweat Chocolate Orange Dessert Hot Sauce over cheesecake or ice cream

3. Figs were seen as erotic treats by ancient Mediterraneans. Their seductively rich flavor shines in the enticingly exotic Olio & Spices BBQ Fig Sauce from Israel, which comes with free recipes AND is on sale!

4. Pineapple is used in homeopathy to help spark libido. Susie's Spicy Pineapple Pleasure blends sweet tropical pineapple with just the right touch of hot peppers to spark your tastebuds... and maybe more??

5. Ginger stimulates the circulatory system, which may be why some cultures believe it also stimulates passion. Find out for yourself when you splash Tortuga Mango & Ginger Stir-Fry Sauce on your favorite stir-fry dishes or other Asian fare!

Operation Sauce Drop Needs Your Support

Operation Sauce Drop is our non-profit program that sends free gift boxes of sauce to US military personnel stationed abroad. To date, we've shipped almost 1,050 free gift boxes to our deployed military, at absolutely NO cost to them. The troops greatly appreciate the free sauces, as you can see from their thank-you notes & photos. Unfortunately, the program is presently out of funds and as of this writing we have 3 pending gift box requests that we currently cannot fulfill. Our cost to purchase and ship each free gift box generally runs from $20 to $25, and 100% of all donations received are used SOLELY to pay for the cost of the sauces & shipping. Carolina Sauce pays for all the overhead of the program and also for a portion of the costs of each gift box. Send a soldier a taste of home by donating to Operation Sauce Drop. You can also shop to support Operation Sauce Drop, where some or all of the purchase price of the products goes straight into Operation Sauce Drop (you get the products you order, and the money you pay is used to send free sauce to the troops). Our troops will thank you for your support!
