Regular readers will recall I recently was overjoyed (Bobby, too) at receiving a birthday gift of a gallon of McIlhenny’s Tabasco sauce. Yes, a gallon.
How could I possibly need more Tabasco?
Well…I have a problem. Okay, not even getting into the list, I mean, I’m now even more obsessed with Tabasco! I grew up eating the regular one but they have a lot more. Not only do they have other flavours but other items — not just pepper sauce! Well, I spent time digging around their site and drooled over foodstuffs and fun items that you really don’t want to try to eat–like shirts and ties.
-are the new readers gone yet?
So! Here I are -family joke, one of my cousins was a toddler and her parents sang out, ‘Where are you, RuthieMae?’ She sang back, ‘Here I are!’ Cute! almost Christmas and McIlhenny Co. offered this fabu deal where you got free shipping, $10 off and a free bottle of their Reserve Sauce, topped with green wax, à la Maker’s Mark. -why are you unsurprised that I make whiskey references?
Why not, right? I ended up getting a bunch of little things that I can hand out to people I love who stop by the ranch this Christmas. Yay!
But what arrived via UPS last night? -Bobby was so excited, he scared Brown. I told him that Bobby wouldn’t bit him, which is partially true. Bobby only bites things (including people) who scare or hurt Sissy–as Brother found out.
A freaking huge, heavy box! It included my many small items but then out came some other stuff…and a letter. The letter stated they were unable to give me a free Reserve ‘wrapped’ (wax sealed) as they’d run out due to high demand. Instead, they gave me:
- Chrome Holder, 5oz. $10
- Ceramic Condiment Set $18.95
- Original Tabasco Sauce, 5oz. $3.99
- Reserve Tabasco Sauce 2011, (‘unwrapped’ / no wax) 5oz. $24.95
Dude. That’s good customer service. I joked that it’s probably all stuff they want to clear out to avoid counting in inventory this spring but still.
Fantastic. Thanks, Clan McIlhenny! -and the sweet elf who filled my box!
