Finally, a hot sauce for everyone at the table.
At Make Food Happy, we believe in honoring traditions. That's why we craft our hot sauce from the same family recipe that John Sr. has been cooking up from his garden since 1995 -- never using preservatives or dyes, our all-natural sauce will become a part of your own family tradition for generations to come.
After years of collecting hot sauces, my father, John Sr., noticed a common trait— almost all of them were overwhelming the taste of his food, rather than complimenting it. So, he embarked on a quest to create a balanced, bold sauce to do just that. After experimenting with ingredients from his garden, he finally crafted a hot sauce with the perfect flavor profile and just the right amount of heat – and the legendary NOTSO was born! The sauce’s popularity spread like (mild) fire amongst family and friends. Demand quickly outgrew our family kitchen as word spread and fans from coast-to-coast began requesting their very own bottle of NOTSO. We are now happily cooking up our sauce in beautiful Santa Cruz, CA where the amazing abundance of local produce has launched our family recipe to new heights and NOTSO’s spicier cousin, ITSO hot sauce, was conceived— creating the perfect pair. Now you too can experience the delicious result of years of my family’s hard work. Whether you like it mild or with a potent kick our sauce will be a great addition to your collection.
