Hastings based couple Sam and Jasmin Bollen have recently set up their own family run Chilli sauce business.
Founded through the lifelong passion from Sam who has always loved getting his chilli kicks but was struggling to find sauces with heat and flavour. He started making his own sauce and after a couple of years perfecting his recipes and amazing feedback from friends and family plus Mrs B (Jazzy’s) encouragement he decided to take it to the public. He had finally found the heat and flavour he wanted along with an added bonus that to get this he only uses carefully selected SUPERFOOD ingredients so its great for your health too.
The sauces come in a variety of three flavours, The Cheeky Chick, The Hardcore Hen and The Courageous Cock all with different heat levels.
After choosing the name for the sauce, ‘Mr & Mrs B’s Seriously buzzin’ hot sauce’, designing their own labels and branding, setting up their own Facebook page and finally receiving their 5* Food Hygiene Certificate in April this year their hot sauce is now available in a number of places in East Sussex, currently selling in the Hastings Handicraft Kiosk on the newly built Hastings Pier and the Lime Cross Nursery in Herstmonceux.
The couple also took to the streets of Hastings on the May Day Bank Holiday weekend to give out samples to all the tourists on the pier, and they have also been fortunate enough to be able to sponsor two local athletes mma/k1 fighhter Dinko Pehlic and mixed martial arts fighter Steven Hill. Not only that they are looking forward to being at the Fiery Foods Festival in September this year where they will be entering their sauce in the national chilli awards.
We spoke to Sam and Jasmin recently who said “We absolutely love what we do. Our aim is to unify the heat and flavour of our specially selected chillies along with our carefully chosen superfood and organic ingrediants to create a seriously buzzin’ hot sauce for people to enjoy with any food their tastebuds require, even Jaffa Cakes!!
