You are what you eat!
Hot Sauce, the reason you're here on this planet, starts with seeds.
These seeds then rely on farmers and even more importantly, quality soil so they may grow to be the most vibrant, healthy ingredients for your sauce. From scoville scorching heat, to mineral content and vitamin density, how the ingredients are grown makes all the difference.
Utmost value is placed on being farmers, and in having close personal ties to local farmers and partners here on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Our joy is the literal growing of your hot-sauce and this company from the most fertile volcanic soil of Hawaii. What better place to start a hot sauce, then an Island made from Lava!
Our aim and dedication is for you to become a physically and mentally better person as a result of using our sauces, concoctions and blends. To look upon the world around with the vigor and the wherewithal to make change. In your day, in your weeks and months, in the moments you make your life. Taking the chance to make a positive mark on the ever changing fabric of time in our universe. To simply be Ninja.
All of our peppers, fruits and vegetables used in our sauces are naturally/organically grown, always first sourcing locally. We strive for being able to offer you in the not too distant future 100% Organic as this is best for the planet, and since we live here, well, that's really good for us apparently as well.
All of our creations come totally and unreservedly ready from our farmers and kitchens for the most demanding Gourmands and Olympic athletes to the parents giving their all so our future has the best chance to make the universe proud of the human experiment.
All of our sauces are VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE. A few use COCONUT.
We do this because we want everyone to be able to enjoy them with zero thought.
We are the droids you’re looking for.
All of our sauces are generous, but not all of them are kind.
We seek the finest blends and balances in all of our sauces so that you may have "once in a lifetime" experiences each and every time you open one of our bottles. We understand that while a great logo goes a long way, what truly matters is in the bottle. But hot damn if that logo isn't mighty catchy. If you haven't figured it out... hint... read down.
Standards for crafting the sauces are based upon two primary factors, what is good for the planet and what is good for the human eating this. Our Sauces are created at the junction of these two ideals to the very best of our ability..
No planet, No peppers, please keep it real and so will we.
Who is Responsible for Spicy Ninja Sauce?!?!
Lauren McKinley - CEO/CoFounder/Ninja
Lauren is currently collecting rare species of peppers on the outer rings of Saturn for use in a sauce and will write her bit for here on the return voyage!
I'm leaving that there until she writes her bio...
She said she has it ready and yet.... where is it...
Christopher Bornstein - Not the CEO/CoFounder/Would Be Ninja*
It's not often you can find a guy who can make a cloth chili pepper hat look good.
I am not that guy and have no illusions about it.
I love spice. I love it in my food, I love it in my days, I seek it where and when I am able.
This began at an early age. Being easily addicted to things, I first found myself addicted to the rush of dopamine and endorphins from hot sauce at around age 11.
At age 16 I had a job at "Some Like it Hot", a kiosk at our local mall which I doubt exists any longer. Im glad it did.
The Navy would see a dramatic rise in my heat intake as the food, bless the cooks hearts, well, I was enlisted in the navy, what did I expect with the food right?
I ate about as much hot sauce as I did food for my four year enlistment (Tabasco/Cholula - Mahalo for keeping me alive and well) and as I was constantly traversing Asia via an aircraft carrier I began to really dig into spices and all things spicy from Japan to Dubai.
What I look forward to beyond death, taxes and learning to deal with sand running out of my hourglass:
I hope to be alive to see the day when we as a species move beyond the silliness of what we currently have going on. Trading blows for patches of land seems like such a waste of time when we have an entire galaxy, a whole universe out there simply waiting for us to shift gears and explore it! I want a speeder bike (Star Wars - of course it's possible) by God!
When I die, I want to go having lived fully. I'd also like "Wagon Wheel" as portrayed by 'Old Crow Medicine Show' playing... What can I say, I don't get it either, but there it is, and I'll do everything in my power to ensure future generations can have the same ability to be odd for no reason.
That line in "Braveheart" sums it up best, "every man dies, not every man lives.". I want to live, I'm not sure what that means exactly, but I'm learning, and I hope you are too.
Mahalo / Aloha / Peace / Love / Rock n' Roll <3
