Olde Virden's Red Hot Sprinkle (1-ounce)
This 1-ounce bottle of Olde Virden’s Red Hot Sprinkle is handmade and ground locally in Knoxville, Tennessee. The five chilies are harvested from local farms all around Tennessee and each bottle is made in small batches and is sent to your house no more than a week after dehydration.
The Red Hot Sprinkle is the perfect spice to keep in your pantry at all times. It’s a great substitute for boring, red pepper flakes on pizza. It gives a regular piece of pizza the kind of spice it deserves.
The Red Hot Sprinkle is sodium free, additive free, and preservative free to make for the freshest, tastiest, most unique spice you could have in your kitchen. Or you can also try to put Ground Red Pepper to spices up your dish.
Olde Virden’s was founded by Chris Virden in his home city of Knoxville, Tennessee. The thought came to Chris as he was having pizza thousands of miles in the air near the peak of Mt. LeConte in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
It was there that he noticed that each pizza place he had ever eaten at used that same generic red pepper flakes and thought there had to be a tastier, more natural option. He came back to his home in Tennessee after the trip and started exploring better alternatives for red pepper flakes. After months of testing different peppers, spices, and methods, he finally ranked and chose his top five.
Shortly after, he opened up a small, family-owned and operated facility in his hometown of Knoxville where the local chilies are dehydrated, prepped, and bottled on-site to be shipped.
