National Fiery Caramel Popcorn Day!

 

And here at All Spice Cafe we like things Fiery, so we are declaring it…

Fiery Caramel Popcorn Day!!!

Check out our award winning Fiery Candied Popcorn snacks to see what we’re talking about.

Last night on Eat More Heat Live James reviewed our Ghost Pepper Candied Popcorn and gave it a Madness (4/5) for Fire and a Notable (5/5) for Flavor!

And for the Vegans out there, we have been told that our Fiery Candied Popcorns are the best “Caramel” Popcorn Snacks available. We do not use butter in our candy coating, so they are Vegan Friendly.

Lopez Tonight

Lopez Tonight

This week Lopez Tonight starts it’s second season, moving to midnight right after the new Conan, forming Team LoCo. Last week we had an opportunity to be in the studio audience for the last show of the first season of the Lopez Tonight show. After the show we were fortunate to see how generous George can be when it comes to helping people with kidney disease. Backstage, a young family told George about a relative in need of a kidney transplant. There was barely a dry eye in the house as George offered to help. Continue reading

Maria Elena's Horchata

The small artisan food industry is a great community and we (small start-up artisans) help each other out whenever we can. The guys at Maria Elena’s Authentic Latino Inc. are exactly like that. We really hit it off and ever since first meeting we have done several events together. Their Organic Horchata is a really nice compliment to our fiery products.

JD Talks with James Beck of SpicyRV

For this year’s Fiery Foods and BBQ Show, a group of guys from Houston Texas got together and made a road trip out of it, in what was called the SpicyRV. Along the way, they blogged, tweeted, and videoed their adventures, then once at the Show they did live-streaming talks with a bunch of folks in the fiery foods industry.

Here is the talk that James Beck of EatMoreHeat.com had with JD. And as they say, “We now join the scheduled program, already in progress…”

video by Media975

These guys did an awesome job of giving those who couldn’t be at the Fiery Foods & BBQ Show a little peek into the event. They also gave the vendors and manufacturers some added exposure and a voice to the world.

So a HUGE Thank You to the crew of the SpicyRV and especially for EatMoreHeat in front of the camera and Media975 behind the camera. We all can’t wait for the next SpicyRV adventure and rumor has it that we might not have too long to wait.

Thanks to everyone who came to the show and all our friends and family for giving us all the love and support. See you next year in Albuquerque, if not sooner!
