Retirement – the real kind – not the Internet thing

Brian with Giant Cholula

Hello Internet… I’ve missed you.

Hello readers… I’ve missed you too!

Retirement is fun!

After over 11 years of writing HotSauceDaily this may be the most personal post I’ve ever written. Bear with me.

Real life got real busy the past few weeks er, months. Hell, for 2 years I was stuck in a supervisory position at my job – and boy, did THAT suck!

Hence the title, Retirement. Yup, after 33 years and 3 months with the US Postal Service, this mailman hung up his bag (no jokes please) and retired!

Retirement IRL

I often get asked “Do you miss your customers now?” Um, sadly, I’ve missed my customers for over 2 years since I was unable to physically jump in and out of my truck over 250 times a day. So, the last 2 years were at a desk. Did I mention that really sucked?

So I’m out. Done. Finished. As a matter of fact, as I like to tell my wife Marilyn, I’m off tomorrow. ­čÖé

I now get up in the morning because I want to. My front porch is a perfect perch to watch the world go by on. A block off the beach here means a lot of bikinis stroll to and from the beach, and gosh darn it, I will see to it that they find their way.

But What About the Hot Sauces?

Oh yea, the hot sauces. They’re piling up. They need some love. And us. You and me. After all, that’s why I write and you read, right?

Now that I have more time, I plan to get active again reviewing sauces and rubs and all the spicy goodies we all love.

My good friend Rich from Rich’s River Smokers of West Virginia (Rich’s River Smokers on YouTube) has encouraged me to do some quick video reviews too.

Wait, videos?

Oh yea. I’ve been slowly building up my YouTube channel HotSauceDaily on YouTube with mostly grilling and smoking videos. And recipes. And cocktails. Outdoor cooking and grilling is my second love after hot sauce.

But Rich has inspired me to do some quick and dirty videos of hot sauce reviews. But if you’ve followed me at all, you know they won’t be of the “burn-your-face-off” crazy variety.

Instagram

My Instagram account is where I’ve been cheating on you all for the past few months. HotSauceDaily on Instagram.

I’m sorry. She’s just so damn hot. That Instagram girl.

I just buy her a few cocktails and she’s all In. Sta. Gram. (I’m sorry I wrote that.)

What’s Next?

I. Don’t. Know.

More hot sauces. More grilling. More videos. More jokes. “A hot sauce, a bbq sauce, and a rub walk into a bar…”.

Definitely more Instagram stuff.

I want to do more YouTube videos too.

I’m at a crossroads in my life and I’m loving being an at home hubby. My daily “honey do” list is short and sweet (for now) and I’m happy to help.

So thanks for reading so far, and for you long time readers for sticking with me.

Consumers Rate New ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® Mexican-Style Hot Sauce #1

New blend of Mexican spices, sea salt and saut├ęed garlic adds a unique, spicy flavor

Sabor (┬íSabor!) by Texas Pete – Mexican-style Hot Sauce

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Answering consumer demand for spicy, flavorful condiments, TW Garner Food Co. has launched new ┬íSabor! by Texas Pete┬« Mexican-Style Hot Sauce. The launch comes after consumer taste tests found the new hot sauce superior in flavor and aroma compared to leading Mexican-style hot sauces.

┬íSabor! by Texas Pete┬« offers a uniquely bold and balanced combination of Mexican spices, sea salt, saut├ęed garlic and aged peppers that is ideal for any meal or cuisine. The word “sabor,” in the Spanish language, means “flavor”ÔÇöand thus, the new hot sauce is aptly named.

“The growth in demand for spicier foods and consumer requests for a hot sauce inspired by Mexican flavors were behind the development of our latest innovation,” said Ann Riddle, Chief Executive Officer for TW Garner. “┬íSabor! by Texas Pete┬« is one of the best flavors we have ever created. I look forward to sharing it with those who are ready for a new flavor among hot sauces.”

Steve DeCorte, Executive Vice President of Sales for TW Garner, added, “┬íSabor! by Texas Pete┬« includes premium ingredients that have been crafted to make any meal taste even betterÔÇöand Mexican foods taste extraordinary. In an independent consumer taste test, ┬íSabor! by Texas Pete┬« was the most favored hot sauce out of all four brands of Mexican-style hot sauces tested.”

The innovative, easy-pour opening on five-ounce bottles of ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® makes adding the sauce to any dish easy. The distinctive label and yellow cap emblazoned with a bold logo also make it easy to find the new hot sauce on supermarket shelves nationwide.

“The Texas Pete┬« brand has been a signature of quality and flavor for nearly 90 years,” said Glenn Garner, the company’s Chief Marketing Officer from the https://the-indexer.com/web-design-companies/ team. “That is why it was important to let loyal customers of our brand know that ┬íSabor! by Texas Pete┬« is now part of the Texas Pete┬« family of outstanding sauces.”

The company leveraged its brand in the wake of its highly successful launch of CHA! by Texas Pete® Sriracha Sauce in 2014, which continues to grow in sales and preference by consumers.

You can expect to see ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete® appear on the shelves of your favorite supermarket in the coming weeks and months, as distribution of the new hot sauce is currently under way.
