The World’s largest spicy themed retailer is sponsoring ZestFest 2016

The Planet’s #1 Hot Shop is coming to Zest Fest
[ Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas
500 W Las Colinas Blvd.Irving, TX 75039 ]


Pepper Palace is the world’s largest spicy themed retailer. They are known for their wide selection of products, selected to please palettes from very mild to outrageously spicy! Pepper Palace has been making the world a spicier place and rescuing bland food for over 26 years, through 40 plus retail locations in the US and Canada. Pepper Palace is famous for their extensive sample bar, where the braver souls can get their pictures on the Wall of Flame!

Pepper Palace’s offerings are small batch, hand crafted product made with pride in the USA. This has resulted in hundreds of National Awards for gourmet products, marketing and flavor.

 Pepper Palace is a privately held corporation that remains a family owned and operated business with a reputation second to none. Over the years, Pepper Palace has earned a dedicated following with "ChiliHeads," the nickname for die-hard hot sauce fanatics who flock to the store to sample the latest palate-burners.

Although hot sauce is clearly the main attraction at Pepper Place, there is also a wide selection of other specialty food products.  You'll find barbeque sauces, the strongest horseradish “Nasal Napalm”, gourmet mustards and ketchups, salsas, marinades, wing sauces, seasoning and spice mixes, pickled items and spicy candy.

Look for us at Zest Fest this year with a double booth of product.  We look forward to seeing you at Zest Fest this year. We plan to leave no Chili head’s yearning for heat unsatisfied, to leave no plate of bland food untouched by saucy goodness, and for every customer to walk out of ZestFest not only satisfied, but impressed.

 Best Regards, Cassie
Marketing Director

Don't Miss This Show!

Don't Miss This Show!
Just when you thought ZestFest 2016 couldn't get any hotter, show producer Greg Bagarozy has just announced he is bringing The Butcher Babe, Loreal Gavin to face-off against her Next Food Network Star rival Chef Sarah Penrod on The Celebrity Chef Stage.  We are not sure what will be involved in the throwdown but with Butcher Babe Loreal involved there is sure to be a delicious meat dish or two.

Last year we had a Cowboy vs. Cowgirl Throwdown between Sarah Penrod and Grady Spears that was great fun.  

Can't wait for January.

You can't win if you don't enter!

The 20th Anniversary Edition of the Fiery Food Challenge is produced by Spicy Food Productions and presided over by independent VIP judges. The Fiery Food Challenge runs Tuesday through Thursday, with an Awards Dinner on Friday night. Winners of the Fiery Food Challenge receive the coveted 2016 Golden Chile Award, plus additional benefits. Recipients are also eligible to market their winning products for the upcoming 2016 calendar year. 

The Fiery Food Challenge is a competition that invites hot, "really hot", spicy and zesty foods and fiery food-related products to be submitted by those folks vying for the prestigious Golden Chile Award - one of only two "fiery" food awards that stand out in the United States. The tasting and the judging are "blind" - a number system is used so judges don't know whose products they're tasting. To maintain the integrity of the contest, the people who tally the ballots do not know which company whose scores they have. This competition is for professional food products and products must be professionally packaged for resale.
