Bob & Neal’s Original Recipe Celebrates First 6 Months of Availability via the Internet and On Store Shelves

Ballston Spa, NY, December 29, 2006
Bob & Neal’s Original Recipe is celebrating its first 6 months being available via the Internet and on store shelves! After 20 years of making “batches” for friends and families, Bob & Neal have introduced their Original Recipe Sauce to the world, spreading the word about “that hot’n sweet kick that makes you crave more.”

Since the retail launch in July, Bob & Neal have been visiting retailers, doing demos of their Original Recipe sauce, attending food shows, entering competitions, and receiving reviews. It has been a busy, productive and delicious time for them, and they’re just getting warmed up!

Speaking of warming up, Bob & Neal’s Original Recipe received recognition at the annual Scovie Awards, which are like the Oscars for hot sauces. Bob & Neal’s Original Recipe sauce competed in the Sweet Sauce category, winning the second place trophy for that division; not bad for new kids on the block.

Bob & Neal’s Original Recipe has also been reviewed on The Hot Sauce Blog, an important destination for hot sauce aficionados. The reviewer served Bob & Neal’s Original Recipe as a dipping sauce for chicken strips at a party to celebrate the opening game of the Michigan Wolverine football season. “It was definitely a hit, and something that can be enjoyed by just about anyone, chilihead or not,” is how he summed up the crowd’s reaction. The review is online, and can be read in its entirety at

Bob & Neal’s is kicking off the New Year by flying off the shelves in a growing number of New York locations on Long Island and Saratoga areas. For retail locations or direct internet purchases please visit www.bobandneals.com.
