Caveat Emptor by CaJohn

Caveat Emptor

To commemorate our 10 years of participating in Fiery Food and Industry shows, CaJohn is releasing a Limited edition set of mirror-finished etched flasks dubbed Caveat Emptor “let the buyer beware!” They are filled with 4 ounces of straight oleoresin of capsicum rated by it’s manufacturer at 4 million Scoville units. There will be 100 of these bottles sold at Zestfest in Ft Worth, Texas and another 100 sold at the Fiery Foods Show in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Each show will feature a different front graphic of a gargoyle. On the back will be the required information and the location of the show. The price for these flasks will be $100.00, profits from these unique bottles will be donated to charities dear to John and Sue Hard who own CaJohns Fiery Foods Company.

I know it doesn’t show well in the photos, but the wax is a “blend of red and black that really looks pretty cool. It resembles blood. This bottle is numbered 0/100 and it will be auctioned off sometime after the sale of the units is completed. A free mini “Light You Up” in 4 colors will also be given with each purchase.
