Happy New Year from our family to yours! As we all say goodbye to 2020, we look forward to brighter days that include family, friends, and BBQ. Entering a new year causes most people, including us here at Texas Pepper Jelly, to pause and reflect. We quickly realized our Rib Candy will celebrate 14 years in 2021 (yep, we’re as old as the iPhone). It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade-plus since we debuted our Apple Habanero Rib Candy, which immediately took off with BBQ fans and continues to be a favorite with champion grillers and home cooks around the world. Since 2007, we have introduced an entire collection of Rib Candy in a host of flavors including our best-selling Apple Cherry Habanero, Mango Habanero, and Peachy Peach Habanero.

Of course, back then and even today, people look at our Rib Candy and ask “what the heck am I supposed to do with it?”. We get excited when we hear this question because it gives us the opportunity to share the endless ways you can incorporate the unique flavors with meats, side dishes and yes, even desserts. We aren’t the only ones that think our Rib Candy is something special, just ask the growing number of world-class BBQ competitors that swear by Texas Pepper Jelly Rib Candy. We believe if it’s good enough to be in the cooking arsenal of grand champions, it’s worth slapping on your grub.

We admit in the beginning we, too, weren’t quite sure of how universal our Rib Candy could be until we started using it during BBQ competitions and in our kitchen. From day one, it’s been our mission to think outside the box and we believe that once you take a look at our stockpile of recipes and ideas you too will start creating extraordinary eats. We love hearing from our Rib Candy fans and hope you will share about your BBQ addiction with us on social media.

Any time you visit us here at Texas Pepper Jelly, be sure to explore our other products including seasonings, sauces, and pepper jelly because you never know when one of our new ideas will hit the shelves like our recent additions; Craig’s Chicken Seasoning (seasoning for all your poultry needs) and Craig’s Ketchup. As for 2021, we wish you and yours the very best. May the new year bring health, happiness, and plenty of barbeque.
