So Many Hot Sauces – A Big Score at Big Lots

Big Lots Hot Sauces - 2013“Hot Sauce Christmas” came twice this year! Just look at this photo!

Big Lots After-Christmas Hot Sauce Sale

If you have been following my previous posts you saw that about a month before Christmas I saw all these hot sauces in Big Lots. And you know that, being a chilehead, I was tempted to buy some — or ALL — of them.


I was burned by this horrible tasting collection about a year ago and swore off of hot sauce collections.


Then I got this collection for Christmas. The sauces, while not world-class were pretty good and I thoroughly enjoyed trying all of the new and interesting bottles.


I still wasn’t convinced.


I went in to Big Lots today and saw that they had marked down their Christmas item, including their hot sauces collections, by 90%. Yes, 90% off. The hot sauce collections that before Christmas cost a very reasonable $5, $10 and $15, today were a completely ridiculous $.50, $1.00 and $1.50!

You can see by the photo above what I did with that news. Look at that photo. Amazing.

If I did the math right — and there is no guarantee — I count 58 new sauces to try (the Southwest Heat Wave was a Christmas gift and I have no idea why I included it in this photo), for the price of 1 premium bottle.

Now you may say, Yes. But 1 premium sauce would likely taste better than any of these sauces.  To which I would reply, Yes. You are probably right.  But this isn’t an either-or issue.  I can afford both.  And, I am so looking forward to trying 58 new sauces in the coming weeks.
