FIRECRACKER PEPPER SAUCE is a Toronto based husband-wife team, hand-making premium Trinidadian style hot pepper sauces.
Our ingredients are all natural and fresh - and our sauces are made without the use of preservatives. They're made in small batches with care and attention to every detail. The sauces are ALL NATURAL, GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN, and made in ONTARIO!
Our story began when (we) Michael, and Carmen were planning our wedding. Our wedding was a fusion of 2 cultures - Carmen's Indo Trinidadian culture, and Mike's Canadian heritage. When it came to deciding what kind of wedding favour to gift to our guests, we didn't want anything that didn't represent who we are. We both love spicy food and Trini style "pepper sauce." With a recipe from Carmen's family, we made a batch for our guests and the sauce was a hit! Realizing how hard it is to purchase authentic, Trini style pepper sauce made with fresh ingredients, this birthed the idea of FIRECRACKER PEPPER SAUCE. We've won 6 awards including double awards for our mango madness sauce, 2nd place at YOW 2021 for our Nuclear Bacchanal sauce and 3rd at the prestigious FIERY FOODS awards 2021 for our Bazodee sauce! We were also a top 3 finalist at the 2022 Ontario Made Awards in the Manufacturing category, our biggest honour to date.
The name “FIRECRACKER” was perfect for our brand - it's a combination of "Fire" and Mike's nickname "Cracker" short for McCracken (our last name).
We hope you enjoy our love for these sauces as much as we do! We're always happy to connect - if you have questions, comments, or feedback please get in touch
