“Our customers have loved our original condiments and spice blends as accompaniments with our cooking for years,” said Beck. “Now people can enjoy them at home every day or when entertaining guests.”

Beck’s Creole Mayo is a zesty sandwich spread and mixer with salads including chicken and crab. It also is a flavorful a dip for crudite and chilled, steamed vegetables.

Beck’s BBQ Onion Relish is infused with barrel aged bourbon to bring a tangy, smoky flavor to burgers, hot dogs, steaks and meatloaf. It also makes a handy accompaniment for Hors d’ Oeuvres and hearty cheeses.

Three Devils hot sauce is where flavor meets heat: a slow-cooked, witches’ brew of fresh garlic, ancho, onions, habanero, oranges and chipotle. Three Devils gives a tasty bite to food and drink from fried shrimp to Bloody Marys. Not your kid brother’s hot sauce!

Angel’s Kiss is a savory and aromatic blend that sharpens the natural flavors of chicken, pork, and seafood.

It can also be combined with olive oil and a sprinkling of fresh citrus to create a marinade that will pleasantly surprise any palate.

Devil Dust blackening seasoning is a select blend of fiery and smoky pepper varieties blended with sweet basil and oregano. It ignites a complex, flavorful heat without scorching the essence of dishes using beef, poultry, seafood and vegetables.
