Ernie's Epic Foods Review & Giveaway CLOSED

Ernie's Story:
“Long before Ernie’s salsas were at grocery stores, he was making batches for friends and family and serving it at parties. Even in those early days, he noticed that salsa and social gatherings go together like chips and...well…salsa.
So, with vegetables from his garden and plenty of friends and family to test recipes on, Ernie got to work.
It took 25 years of tweaking and refining his recipes, but finally Ernie's "Gourmet Red" and "Perfect Peach" were born. Anyone who has tasted his salsas would agree, all the work was worth it.”


I received two jars of Ernie’s Salsa for review: Gourmet Red and Perfect Peach.



I was a little weary of the Peach kind because I had never tried that before, so I opened the Gourmet Red jar first. All I can say is WOW! Ernie’s salsa has the perfect blend of spicy and sweet. I have never tasted a salsa quite like it.

After we finished off that jar, we opened up the Perfect Peach jar. As I mentioned earlier, I was a little nervous. Peach salsa? Well, apparently I don’t get out much. This stuff was amazing too! It was spicier (in my opinion) that the Gourmet Red, so my husband devoured this jar before I could even get a second serving! He absolutely loves spicy things, so it was right up his alley.

If I had to pick, my favorite would be the Gourmet Red, only because it was slightly less spicy than the Perfectly Peach. But if you ask me, both of Ernie’s Salsas are by far the best Salsa that I have ever had!!

You can find Ernie’s Salsa at many local retailers like Harris Teeter, Whole Foods, Bloom, and Martin’s. There are others that are listed on the website, so be sure to check them all out.

Next time you stop on the salsa isle of your local store, remember to look for Ernie’s Salsa. I promise you will not regret it! Oh, and if your store doesn’t carry it, do yourself (and your neighbors) a favor and request that they start selling it!


BUY IT! You can purchase your own yummy Ernie’s Salsa at http://www.erniesepicfoods.com/ .
