The State Fair will soon be upon us and someone (can't imagine who!!) went crazy and signed up for 17 sample days throughout the fair!  I know we are going to need some help on some of those days.  I'll post the sampling schedule in the next few weeks and I'm happy to offer $50 in free spices to anyone who wants to volunteer to help serve chili and talk about Mild Bill's for a few hours!  Keep it Spicy!

I'm excited to have finally finished the new website. I think it will be easier for customers to place orders and most importantly, I think the shipping costs will be a lot more accurate.  You may notice that there are a few products not listed on the new site.  Some of omissions are temporary (jellies, for example. I'm out of stock and need to make more) and will be added to the site once they're available again.  Some items have been phased out - Grand Prize, San Antonio Light and San Antonio Dark.  Grand Prize and San Antonio Light are custom blends - I can always blend those products and get them to you.  All you have to do is ask.  I took San Antonio Dark out of the inventory for a few reasons - one being that it is virtually identical to Mild Bill's Dark.  It just didn't make any sense to continue to carry products that had the exact same ingredients in the exact same quantities

I've also removed Ghost Pepper, Trinidad Scorpion and Carolina Reaper ground chili peppers from the website.  Competition chili cooks don't typically use these products in their chili recipes and from a business standpoint, it wasn't a smart financial decision to continue carrying inventory that wasn't being purchased enough to justify the cost associated with keeping it in stock .  

Even though I've removed a few products, I have two new ground chili peppers to add to the website along with four new blends currently in the R&D phase.  The ground chili peppers will be available by the end of the week.  The new blends will be ready to go before the beginning of the State Fair. I always like to debut new products around that time.

Again, I thank all of you for your continued business and support.  I've still got a few things to tweak on the website so please be patient while I finish adding recipes, upcoming events and info about the Terlingua Verde CCO.  Should you have issues checking out or need help with a product selection, don't hesitate to call or email me.

Keep it Spicy!
