Sonoran Spice to Sponsor Pepper Eating Contest at 8th Annual Arizona Taco Festival

Scottsdale, Arizona - September 2017

Sonoran Spice, a leading manufacturer and retailer worldwide that specializes in the world's hottest peppers will be a sponsor at the 8th Annual Arizona Taco Festival being held at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Arizona on October 14th-15th.

Each year hundreds of taco lovers swarm the fields and devour thousands of $2 tacos while enjoying frozen margaritas, ice cold beers, tequila, live music, food eating contests, a Chihuahua Beauty Pageant and more. This year, Sonoran Spice will sponsor the taco festival's annual Hot Chile Pepper Eating Contest and award the winner a $500 cash prize. Contestants will begin with relatively mild peppers and move through the list of world's hottest peppers until one champion remains.

"Two of Arizona’s most notable Chileheads, Jerrod Harris of Sonoran Spice and Vic Clinco, will be your gatekeepers to hot pepper fame at this showdown. Clinco has amassed the world’s largest private collection of hot sauce and is an ambassador for all things spicy. Harris and his all-things-spice company are offering the ultimate prize: $500 IN CASH! Together, they call on many of their pepper-growing brethren to develop strains that you can only experience at places like the Arizona Taco Festival. Sign up if you dare. 6 contestants, audience determines a tie." - Arizona Taco Festival
