In celebration of National Hot Sauce Day on Wed., Jan. 22, the Belize Tourism Board is partnering with its two largest hot sauce brands — Marie Sharp’s and Hot Mama’s — to create an epic Belizean vacation for capsicum addicts. The winner will spend five days and four nights in one of the world’s largest producers of habanero peppers and test their limits on the Scoville scale.
The Belizean hot sauce experience will include activities such as:
-Tours of the Marie Sharp’s factory and farm and the Hot Mama’s Factory in the Cayo District of Belize
-A visit to the Marie Sharp’s Tourist Center and Culinary Class in San Ignacio, including the chance to sample essential spices and mix and match hot sauces to your liking
-Meeting with Marie Sharp and Wilana “Hot Mama” Oldham, the leading women of Belize’s hot sauce industry
-Opportunities to try even more hot sauces at every meal
-Milk. Plenty of milk for even the most durable of digestive tracts.
From now through Wed., Jan. 22 (National Hot Sauce Day), anyone 18 and older in the U.S. can enter by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you deserve a hot sauce vacation.
