Holiday Gift Guides – Gifts for Goodies

"Founded in Brooklyn in 2012, Filfil Foods’ simple goal is to add “yummy to life.” Their garlicky hot sauce is one of the crown jewels in our own collection of condiments. Find no mystery ingredients here: Filfil’s No. 7 is made with a ton of garlic, lots of paprika, oil, vinegar, salt, and spices. We like different hot sauces for different things but this one is especially good drizzled over eggs. Add a dash inside your next grilled cheese sandwich or a few shakes to tuna salad. If you love to grill all year long like we do, fire up the Weber and use the garlicky sauce on lightly charred burgers and dogs.”
