I JUST GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I received mine yesterday...four bottles of triple Cobra strength...LOVE IT. Just had a dab on my finger so far, but will be cooking up something this weekend. Need recipes!
Got my sauce. Thank you!
SWEET HOLY MOTHER OF GOAT CHEESE AND TRICYCLES!!!!
It is here and it is AWESOME!!!
Now mind you, I've only sampled the Honey Habanero.....and it's been 15 minutes BUT already I'm contemplating calling out sick from work and firing up the grill!!!
Well done guys and well worth the wait !
Gonna have to send some out to family members from web site....cos they AIN'T GETTIN' MINE !!!!!!
Hey guys, everything shipped out last week with some the week before. The majority of backers should be getting their sauce this week. Some should already have it!
I'm pretty sure they meant 5-10 Business days. That's a 2 week window and we're just starting the second week. I'm gonna check back on Thursday if I don't get it by then though.
Has anyone actually seen their order yet? Im in DC and havent seen anything yet. Should I give up hope?
Hey guys, excited for my sauce! You said in the last update we can expect to see delicious goodness in 5-10 days, do you have a rough idea of the ETA for UK deliveries?
I am so stoked to get this sauce! Using this as a wedding gift for one of my guys whos call sign is Honey Badger!
Gonna be camping my mail for this now. Yay
Berto, there are surely many others as well. I'm looking forward to seeing the badger and tasting the sauce.
Am I the only one who is still anxious to try this sauce and actually cares?...
Look out for a big update coming tomorrow!
Summertime and the Honey Badger is easy...........
Awesome! Any guess as to when we should be getting them? Keep up the good work!
Sauce is made! Labeling in process.
How's it going, fellahs?
Definitly thinking the same thing... but at the same time I like to see that the labs are taking this serious enough. I can only eat so much at a time, so don't want 11 bottles to go moldy while I enjoy 1 haha.
Yeah Sean I was thinking the same thing...
"Yes! We were hoping to be able to do one today. But we are waiting for a piece of lab data. Paul."
This was 6 days ago, any update?
Yes! We were hoping to be able to do one today. But we are waiting for a piece of lab data. Paul.
Guys, update coming soon. Full lab results due at the end of the week, the guys in white coats cannot be rushed, on track for the timeline we stated in the last main update.
I received my moldy package a month ago. When can I expect to receive a non-moldy package?
I agree, when can we expect our orders? It has been three weeks since your last update.
Decided after 3 weeks to try the opened bottle of sauce (The triple Strength that got on my shirt). Mine showed no signs of mold. Heck, it didn't even show signs of separation of the contents of the bottle. Put a bit of triple strength in my mouth and noticed a kick, but a bit lacking on sauciness. Not sure if it is because I didn't shake it. Tasted pretty decent, but can I ask one request? Up the heat? Maybe it's cause I took a small amount, but the heat feels a bit too low for me. Otherwise I'm hoping the new batch gets it's final testing done and sent out soon. I'm only brave enough to try this one bottle for now.
So what is the new estimated ship date?
so, i got mine a few weeks ago and it's been sitting on my counter. (i opened the package right after receiving the DO NOT CONSUME email...) Then you finally explained why we shouldn't consume them. I've been waiting looking for mold to grow on the top where the air bubble is inside the bottle but haven't seen it yet.
I know you said that about 3% of the bottles contain "natural airborne molds" but how dangerous is this? If it's naturally occurring in the air then what are the odds i already have this stuff floating around my house or my office? Could I pour the sauce into a pot, boil it to sterilize the sauce, (disinfect the bottles) and re-bottle it and it would be safe?
Don't get me wrong...I'm not about to take a risk when you said so strongly DO NOT CONSUME (good work getting the message across). I'm just super super excited to try this stuff. We've been waiting for many a month and having to wait another 2 months when it was within my grasp is heart-wrenching, especially if I could just boil the sauce to sterilize it. (of course, while waiting patiently for the official replacement).
---I understand that you gave notice of potential danger in consuming the sauce, and am interested in the responses to my above questions regardless of this warning---
Thanks guys for the comments, and the fun pics you are sending in, glad you love the shirts, our illustrator Karlie McCulloch did an amazing job for us. For all those that had t-shirts but didn't get a package, they will come with the fresh batch of sauce.
I hope can see from the updates that we are making good progress, and we will have this fresh batch to you all as soon as we can get the extra natural preservative through lab testing. The shelf life of 1 year will likely remain unchanged.
And as we mentioned in the updates, all backers will receive an extra bonus to reflect our gratitude for sticking with us. Can't wait to get it in your hands.
ONE MORE THING..THE T-SHIRTS ARE FABULOUS AS WELL!
Amazing to me how many people turn, when the whole idea of Kickstarter is to help with new ideas, and to try to get production started for new, innovative products..I wish you "Badgers" the best..and if your product is indeed as great as it sounds..you will be successful..With sadness, I did pour out the sauces today..but look forward to the new batch arriving in time for summer cook-outs! Oh...and the bottles are indeed AWESOME!
Does adding this preservative add shelf life?
Im glad you guys are preserving. I love delicious sauces.
You guys are awesome! I was SO excited to see my little badgers, and the aroma was heaven! Can't wait to slather the stuff on my soon to be even more famous fall off the bone ribs! Happy to be one of your little honey backers!
I sent an email for a refund and never received a reply.
Which "natural preservative" are you adding?
Looking forward to the 2nd batch!
Got my refund yesterday. Thanks and good luck!
Received my refund today. Thank you very much for taking care of that. Best of luck, I have no doubt you will recover from this.
got mine and threw them out...was tempted to try it ...look fwd to 2nd batch
Just wanted to clear up a few questions we have been getting. First off, we have not yet sent out a second batch of sauce, so any sauce you have received is part of the recall and should not be eaten. This includes triple cobra unfortunately.
Second, backers that have requested a refund will receive it shortly. As you might imagine we have allot going on right now with this setback and are working on every front to make it right. An update with more information will follow later in the week.
I also wanted to note that the tripple stength bottle I received today was leaking and the top of the regular bottles cover had text saying sealed for freshness, while the leaking tripple strength bottle did not have the red text on it. Could it be that nothing will seal the freshness of a wild honey badger?
Received mine as well today. I could tell it was the sauce from the way it smelled. It was tossed and turned a lot because the Triple Strength bottle is leaking sauce at the top. It seems even these bottles weren't enough to contain the powerful flavor. Neither was the plastic wrapper for the shirt. Gonna give the shirt a wash and hope it's not stained permanently. Not brave enough to test the sauce if it's not recommended. Although I'm wondering if I can get a new... clean shirt? Can't hurt to ask. Hopefully those little buggers get through and out to us soon.
For those who received the recalled sauce (I have not received anything yet), you can dispose of the sauce, thoroughly clean the container, and come up with a creative use for the empty badger. Please let the rest of us know what you do with the badger via a comment here and perhaps other creative ideas will come out. I'm confident Paul, Chris, and Leigh will appreciate knowing something good came of the tainted run.
I had the same issue that James had.
So I got the BBQ today. What do I do with it?
Sorry to hear about the continued issues. As ridiculous as your whole ordeal has been, most of us realize the pain and unknowns that arise from being a start-up. So best of luck going forward. I did just receive the bottles and will reluctantly dispose of them. Just an fyi, one bottle arrived with a cracked lid and leaked a bit. Not a big deal, but I will be disappointed if the replacements are damaged in transport as well. Hopefully, that's the last of your issues.
