Who the heck is Mike Whitlock?
Mike is responsible for creating our theme "a fiesta on a chip". We had asked several friends to present ideas and when Mike excitedly gave us his, we immediately knew it was the one we were looking for. We can't thank him enough.
Why should I pay more for your salsa?
Well, to modify a line from one of our favorite movies, "Tommy Boy", I guess we could "crap in a cup and slap a $2.99 label on it, but then you'd be paying $2.99 for a cup of crap wouldn't you?"
Why don't you spend the few extra cents and get a GREAT quality product like ours? It's worth it.
Besides, many of our competitors actually sell their salsa in 14oz sizes; whereas we use a 16oz in stores. Make sure you check the "cost per ounce" to get an accurate "apples to apples" comparison. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results!
What if we can't find your salsa in a store by us, what shall we do?
One of two things: You can go to our Online Store and purchase your salsa online or you can email us and request we get in a store near you! You can also ask your store manager to start carrying our products, too.
Okay, so that's THREE things…
Do you use sugar?
No. Any sweetness is derived from the tomatillo’s.
How much salt is there?
Approximately 88mg per 1 ounce serving.
Why don’t you have a "Nutrition Facts" label?
We have applied for and received an exemption from the FDA, because we qualify under the small business exemption rule.
How long will the salsa last?
We put a four week (28day) shelf life on the product, but it will actually last a little longer. Keep it refrigerated for longer freshness.
Will it spoil if I leave it out?
Yes, but simply treat it like milk and you'll be fine.
Is your container recyclable?
Yes. It is rated as a number 1, for Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETE or PET). Most recyclers accept them.
How many stores are you in?
Over sixty right now. Stores change from month-to-month, especially if they're small. Call to find all our stores. And remember, you can always order from our online store anytime. - Click our online store
