Haunted Hot Sauce R.I.P.

In case you haven't heard the sad news, Haunted Hot Sauce is no more. Totally understand his reasoning, and wanted to say 'thanks' for all his work and badass product! From Vic's website:

Haunted Hot Sauce is closed permanently.

Thank you all so much for such a great ride all these years!

Over the past 8-9 years my crazy "hot sauce in a coffin" idea has really turned into something special. Anyone who's ever talked to me or purchased one of my products (in a coffin especially) knows the amount of work I put into everything I do. Well that amount of work has finally caught up to me. Haunted Hot Sauce has grown to a level that I can't keep up with anymore. My customer service is beginning to suffer, I'm behind on all of my projects with partners, it takes me waaay too long to fill orders...and this is in JUNE, wait til it starts to get busy! I have a day job and a family and right now I'm spending all morning before work filing orders. I work all day. I spend all evening, every evening making the coffins...weekends too! It's consuming me like a drug! Everyone around me is being affected and everything I do aside from Haunted Hot Sauce, and now INCLUDING Haunted Hot Sauce is before I start really dropping the ball with customers' money, and quality of product and time to fulfill orders...I'm having to close the coffin lid on a successful and fulfilling project. I appreciate more than you know all of those who have supported this crazy idea! Anyone who would actually buy zombie hot sauce in a coffin with moss and maggots are my kind of people!

I'll still be making Halloween props and decorating my yard for halloween, building creepy costumes, attending haunt conventions (maybe even more now), making pumpkin spice liqueur and doing what I do, I just won't be selling hot sauce online every day anymore.

You can keep in touch with me through Facebook at:

or through my blog at . the hot sauce site is going away. The Undertaker isn't.

Please keep in touch.
Thank you.

Stay Rotten,
Victor "The Undertaker" Ives

Best wishes for the future, Vic!! Hope I get to meet ya one of these days at a con. Stay scary!
