Hot sauce reviewer Jason Leek is hot for Expedition Sauce

Unless you’re eating crickets or wooly mammoth (see related story), expedition fare can be pretty bland. Thus, we’re pleased to learn one hot sauce entrepreneur successfully rattled the cup on Kickstarter to raise $5,002 from 55 backers.

The company, de Mars LLC, is working with a local Seattle factory to produce Expedition Sauce in three ounce aluminum tubes and suitable for extreme travel. It starts shipping in early April for approximately $7 each.

Currently a team of sponsored climbers in Yosemite are using it and creating short videos about their adventures. Company founder and CEO John de Mars has personally consumed the hot stuff on dozens of trips including two Mt. Rainier summit missions. De Mars tells EN, “It has incredible flavor and heat that can make bland food taste great.”

Jason Leek, a southern-drawled and heavily goateed professional hot sauce reviewer (who knew?), says it’s his favorite hot sauce. Who are we to argue?
