The Indianapolis gift box features 4 of our city’s iconic flavors, including the following:
St. Elmo’s shrimp cocktail sauce: Named the “world’s spiciest food” by critic Allison Stein Werner in 2008 and featured on the Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” in 2010, St. Elmo’s Shrimp Cocktail Sauce is hard to forget thanks to its powerful horseradish punch. Made with all natural ingredients and no preservatives, this condiment is a quintessential piece of the culinary history of Indianapolis.
Squealers Smokin' Hot BBQ sauce: The famous Squealers Smokin’ Hot Sauce has won 11 national and regional awards in barbeque competitions. Not nearly as intimidating as it sounds, this sauce has a gentle-but-sufficient jalapeno kick delivered through a bold tomato-base that is truly unique to Squealers and Indianapolis.
Best Boy’s Bourbon Barrel caramel sauce: The Bourbon Barrel caramel sauce is one of Best Boy’s best-selling dessert condiments. Made with locally-famous Bad Elmer’s Porter from Bloomington’s own Upland Brewery, it has a full-bodied flavor and a creamy consistency, making it a perfect complement to apples, pretzels, ice cream or just about any other dessert you can imagine.
LocalFolks stoneground Xxpress mustard: The Stoneground Xxpress Mustard is LocalFolks Foods’ best-selling product. This fresh, stone-ground mustard is lightly sweetened with a little honey and ripe red bell peppers, making it a perfect complement to any sandwich.
The Chicago gift box features 4 classic condiments from the Windy City, including the following:
Carson's signature BBQ sauce: Since its founding nearly 40 years ago, Carson’s has been committed to the art of authentic slow-cooked barbecue. Known in Chicago as “The Place for Ribs,” Carson’s smokes their ribs in a natural hickory wood-burning pit. Their famous barbecue sauce, known simply as "Art in a Bottle," is at the core of the restaurant's legacy.
Hienie's Chicago-style hot sauce: Hienie’s unique neon-orange, mustard-based hot sauce began as a southside Chicago tradition nearly 70 years ago. After a cult following had them shipping orders of gallon jugs across the country, Hienie’s was featured in the Chicago Tribune, Food Guide and a variety of other news outlets. What was a local Chicago secret is now country-wide sensation.
Marconi brand hot giardiniera: A product of the V. Formosa Co., which dates back to 1898 in Chicago, the secret of Marconi brand hot giardiniera has been passed down through 4 generations of Italian owners. Originally popularized with the Italian beef sandwich, this condiment is inseparable from the culinary history of Chicago.
Vienna Beef sport peppers: Vienna Beef traces its history back to 1893 when Austro-Hungarian immigrants introduced their family frankfurter recipe at the Columbian Exposition. Since that time, Vienna Beef has become synonymous with the Chicago-style hot dog, as well as its famed toppings, including the sport pepper.
