Review – Stadium Salsa Holy Toledo XX Hot Salsa

Stadium Salsa Holy Toldeo XX Hot SalsaI remember the first time I met Greg Shepherd, owner of Stadium Salsa, vividly. We were booth in the foyer of Jungle Jim’s Oscar Event Center several years ago, where the Weekend of Fire was about to go down. I was waiting for my bloggers booth pass while he was trying to obtain his pass for being a vendor that year. Long story short, we talked for a minute, exchanged business cards, and later met each other up in the main ballroom where the show was held.

That day I learned that Greg’s food offerings weren’t the most flame-o-riffic thing ever to hit a spicy food show, but they were pretty damn tasty nonetheless, including Stadium Salsa’s Mexicali Cheese Dip (which interestingly enough, was interesting enough to Jonathon Passow’s palette to review three years ago on The Hot Zone Online.) The few jars of Stadium Salsa’s products I took home that year were the last of that Bowling Green, Ohio-based company I’ve had.

Until now, that is. Greg recently shipped a jar of his Stadium Salsa Holy Toldeo XX Hot Salsa for me to review. This extract-fueled is SS’s entry into the super-chilehead race in the salsa category. Does it measure up to his previous tasty efforts, or does it get weighed down by the typical chemical-like flavor of capsicum extract? Read on to see what I think…
