Inner Beauty Hot SauceMADE BY TODD'S SALSA IN BANGOR, MAINE
“I pour it on scrambled eggs. I mix it into Bloody Marys. I put it on everything.”—Craig, CEO
Selling Inner Beauty hot sauce at Mouth represents the culmination of a (gulp) 25-year obsession of our founder Craig Kanarick. Craig fell in love with it when he moved to Boston after college in the 90s, when he first really started going out to restaurants and bars.
"I discovered Chris Schlesinger’s awesome place in Cambridge, East Coast Grill," he explained. "It was unique at the time, when open wood grilling restaurants weren’t on every street corner. The New York Times raved that it was 'bringing the Boston restaurant scene to life.' I poured it on scrambled eggs. I mixed it into Bloody Marys. I put it on everything. When I moved to New York, it wasn’t easily available and I basically nursed the three bottles of it I brought with me, and that was it."
Well, the sauce is being bottled the sauce again and we’re happy to be able to finally offer it at Mouth. You can read more about the sauce and Craig's obsession, but trust us when we say you're just going to want to get some before he takes it all home. (No, not kidding.)
