AVERY ISLAND, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, TABASCO® Brand announces the release of TABASCO® Brand x TINX Avocado Jalapeño Hot Sauce Dressing which is available to purchase on Amazon for $9.99 (12 oz). Zesty and herby with just the right spice, the premium, limited-edition dressing marries the 154-year-old hot sauce maker’s pepper expertise with the style and palate of Tinx.
The creator’s penchant for using TABASCO® Green Jalapeño Sauce as a dressing and sharing this hack with her millions of social media followers caught the brand’s eye, sparking the partnership and product innovation.
“I’ve been using hot sauce as dressing for years. A marriage of my two favorite things: crunchy salad and flavorful spice. I’ve experimented with different versions and finally thought - I should make this official! Who better to turn to than the 154-year-old family run Tabasco Brand? Experts doesn’t cover it - they are the blueprint. I couldn’t be prouder to have partnered with this legendary brand to make my hot sauce dressing dreams come true. I can’t wait for everyone to try it.”
From the artful label design to the dressing formulation itself, Tinx was involved in every step of the process.
“We knew that Tinx was already a brand fan, using our product in a unique way so she was a natural fit as our first-ever talent partner collaboration” says Lee Susen, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at McIlhenny Company, owners of TABASCO® Brand. “Innovation is a priority for us, especially products that tap into cultural trends and excite hot sauce fans.”
This innovation marks another milestone for the brand – its expansion into the growing dressing category. The product’s name is derived from its hero ingredients as each bottle is 50% TABASCO® Green Jalapeño Sauce that’s been blended with Tinx-approved ingredients like avocado, EVOO, and apple cider vinegar.
