  • Took 1st place in a large, regional faire in two categories: Hot Sauce (1st) and BBQ Sauce (1st) - with Cinder Habanero small-batch and South Carolina style Mustard & Vinegar BBQ! This is a red letter day!
    Hot sauce being produced today, officially :) Both excited and crapping bricks at the same time.

    Saw the pictures, it looks good :) If you don't mind my asking how many bottles did you get produced this run and how much did it set you back?

    Endorphin's prices were very reasonable. 150 boxes @ 12 each was 1800 expected, the run produced about 1750. my COGS was myc better than I could have ever hoped from a startup. If these sell, I'm definitely sticking with them.

    1750 bottles, not dollars
    Already in 1 week I have accomplished more, and understand more with Endorphin Farms than I have on my own in over a year. Amazing... and I'm not even that far along with them yet! Can't wait.

    +100 Endorphin farms are professionals
    Well. Here I am again, 1 year later. Still in the same boat. Perhaps I'll just use a co-packer, because this CT food industry BS is for the birds. They clearly do NOT want small businesses to start here.

    Laws written by food industry corporations are titled to make you think one thing, but the content is most definitely designed in their favor.

    Using a copacker is your best bet anyway unless you are otherwise unemployed and have a spare 40 hours a week to spend on your sauce business.

    I withdrew college in 1996 and went right into the work force, because I felt at the time it was holding me back. College can't teach experienec, and I was able to land a job right in my field from the get-go. After being laid off twice, I had to become a contractor for a major hardware company to even have a job... and when things quieted down... I had to convince my contracting employer to push for a full time hire where I worked. Only problem was, I didn't have a degree. Kinda...
    I'm thinking of putting ghost flakes in my coworkers red pepper flake shaker to re-create the atomic pepper scene in "Dumb & Dumber" yes/no?

    if you all prank each other, than maybe my comments were harsh, but i agree with sick, make sure you can beat him up in case he gets pissed off.

    I agree with that! He may decide that he wants to whoop an a$$ over it! If it were me, I would just tell ya to be ready for payback!
