  • Hot Sauce Feature: Yellowbird Condiments

    This month, my Pepperologist Picks are the condiments from Yellowbird, a Texas-based spicy condiment kitchen serving up some of the finest, cleanest hot sauces available on the market! I love Yellowbird because all of their condiments are free of preservatives, made with ethically-sourced ingredients, and are just plain good!

    Yellowbird got its start when co-founders George Milton and Erin Link simply became fed up with other spicy condiments on the market. They had just started living a healthier lifestyle and were trying to eat as cleanly as possible.

Each of the hot sauces is “featured,” and then… the hunt begins.

    Not long ago, we decided to devote some space to the hot sauces featured on Hot Ones,
