the yow! awards!!

     Do your friends and customers tell you that you make an amazing hot sauce? Enter your best sauces in the 2022 YOW! Awards.  We have many judges that are willing to lay their tastebuds on the line to help pick the 1st, 2nd, 3rd best sauces in 4 different categories… Mild, Medium, Hot and Extreme. And the Grand Champion “King of Sauces 2022!”

Judges will be doing a double-blind tasting and points will be given independently for taste, smell, texture, accurate heat rating and overall impression.

To participate in the awards, you will need to provide 2 bottles of each sauce plus $25 (plus HST) per category. Maximum of one entry per category.  We need your sauces by                June 1, 2022.  

Winners will be announced at Heating up the Capital on August 27, 2022. Open to all Canadian makers that comply with the below-mentioned rules. You do not need to be at the hot sauce expo to participate.
