Cry Baby Craig's Wins 

2017 Fiery Food Challenge!


Cry Baby Craig's has been awarded the Golden Chile for "Hot Sauce:  Latin Style – Hot/X-Hot" in the 2017 Fiery Food Challenge!

That's not all!

Cry Baby Craig's also tied for third for "Hot Sauce: Hot" in the 2017 Fiery Food Challenge.


On January 27, 2017, the most prestigious awards in the spicy food industry were distributed at the Fiery Food Challenge Awards dinner in Irving, Texas, and Cry Baby Craig's came out on top! CBC's Pickled Garlic and Habanero took home two awards for hot sauce, first place for "Latin Style Hot/X-Hot" and tied for third for "Hot" categories.

The Fiery Food Challenge pits products from across the US and internationally against one another in more than 90 categories. Professional judges evaluate hundreds of sauces, salsas and other spicy treats and award first, second and third place prizes in each category. Awards are proudly displayed at ZestFest, a spicy, zesty and flavorful food event held the same week as the Fiery Food Challenge at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.

CBC's has now won three national awards, including third place at the 2017 Scovie Awards. 

Craig Kaiser, founder and sole producer of Cry Baby Craig's, said “Winning the Fiery Food Challenge in two categories is pretty frickin' great! This sauce is more than just a local favorite, its becoming national."
