Happy Monday everyone! I am excited to be launching my new “Monday Market” weekly blog post in which I will feature food products that are not only delicious, they are produced locally. I am a huge supporter of local shops and products and want to share my yummy discoveries with all of you.
I am really excited about today’s featured product which is truly the “cat’s meow!” I discovered this product on twitter back in May when I learned they were going to be holding a tasting at one of my favorite spots in Tampa, Datz. Excited, I went to mark the date in my calendar and realized that I was going to be in California during that time. They were so kind and offered to send me samples since I would miss the event. I tried the samples and am hooked! Their products are not only “hot”, they have great flavor. This wonderful product I am speaking of is a line of hot sauces that is produced in Orlando by Fat Cat Foods. If you are looking to add some spice to your life, you need to try Fat Cat Gourmet Sauces!
Based in Orlando, Fat Cat Foods is a boutique condiments company that produces gourmet hot sauces. All of their products are all-natural and preservative-free, and are made from top-quality ingredients. Ideal for recipes, some of their sauces are hot and some are mild and they all feature a complex array of natural ingredients and pure flavors that complement a wide range of foods.
Their collection of flavors includes: (descriptions courtesy of Fat Cat Foods)

Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost
