The Sauces And Spices At This One-Of-A-Kind Nebraska Store Will Set Your Tastebuds On Fire
The past 20 years or so seen hot sauce and hot peppers go from niche products to one of the fastest-growing sectors of the food industry. Some of the hottest, tastiest peppers go into the products at this little store in Bellevue, and if you’re a fan of heat you’ve got to stop in.
Volcanic Peppers has been operating out of this cozy storefront in Bellevue since 2013. The family-owned business started as a hobby and blossomed into a full-time venture.
Owner Tim Bader and his daughter began selling their home-grown peppers at a farmers market, and eventually the growing demand for super-spicy foods allowed the family to jump in with both feet.
The little store is packed with mouthwatering (and tongue-searing) products that visitors just can't get enough of.
Salsa is one of the favorites. Heat levels range from mild to XXX hot, and every one of them is delicious. Just be sure you can handle the heat before scooping up a pile of it on a chip!
Spice blends add a distinctive flavor and plenty of heat to your meals. They can be used in a variety of ways in everything from meat grilling to candy making.
Hot sauces and BBQ sauces are, of course, among the most popular items. They come in a variety of heat levels, with the hottest being so spicy that most people can't handle it. The flavors are creative and thoughtful, with the ingredients perfectly balanced.
If you're hoping to make your own super-spicy salsa or other fresh creation, you can even find fresh peppers in the store during harvest season.
Volcanic Peppers doesn't just sell these tasty products; they have their hands in every stage of the production process. From growing to roasting to hand-labeling the bottles, this is a true hands-on business.
You can taste the care that goes into every product - and, of course, the heat. Volcanic Peppers grows and uses some of the hottest peppers on the planet to make their super-hot varieties. Only the brave should attempt to devour these sauces, seasonings, and condiments.
If you can't get to Bellevue to visit the store, don't worry. You can find Volcanic Peppers products in grocery stores. Most are in Omaha, Lincoln, and Iowa, but a handful of other states - and even Canada! - offer them.
You’ll find the Volcanic Peppers store at 601 Fort Crook Rd N, Bellevue, NE 68005.
