The Chilli Company

The Chilli Company

Scooby here for the ChileFoundry after a flying visit with my chilli buddy, Scotty 2 Hottie, through the Chilli Company Chilli Festival in Mendlesham, Suffolk . The festival is over 2 days starting on 20th August until the 21st August 11am to 5pm with the chillistock music festival starting at 5pm to 11pm.

Plenty to do for all of the family ranging from rodeo bull riding competition, bouncy castles, and some awesome chilli products to try. Cookery demonstrations, chilli eating competition and barbecue. Lots of animals for the kids to get up close and personal to with the Alpacas, snakes, pigs and Rhea chicks plus many more besides. Pies and Pasties, fudge and an absolutely amazing strawberry and rhubarb drink from Breckland Orchard which is a must.

And of course a chilli festival would not be the same without some great heat firing it along. This was brought along by the likes of Cambridge Chilli Farm, Philli Chillies from Great Hockham, Chilli Bugs Hot Sauces, Horned Fox chilli sauces who have a superb hot mustard.

Sinful Sauces made an appearance with their tongue tingling peanut butters and mustards, most recently noted for having Darth Naga review on their Naga mustard which came at a very high rating which I can only back up by saying WOWWWWWWW.

Not forgetting a good friend of mine Nic from Pepperbellies who welcomed me on the day with some smoked Habanero chilli that I did thank him for after I had stopped crying and hiccuping through the heat but brilliant smoked maple flavour.

All in all this is a great day out for the family in all ways, there is something for everybody and if the weather holds out as it has so far then it will be one hell of a ‘hot’ weekend 😉
