With that being said, time is running out! Make sure you add us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with what's going on in the Bravado world. After the Kickstarter closes we will be connecting with our backers to get shipping information, shirt sizes, additional contact info, etc.
Stay tuned folks! We're just getting started!

We are James Nelson and Jeremiah Tallerine, co-founders of Houston, TX based Bravado Spice Co. We've spent the past few months crafting and distributing our creations throughout our city to gain insight and feedback on what people want. We can proudly say that our first two products, Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce / Crimson Chili Sauce, are ready for production!
Who we are.
Fresh produce. All natural ingredients. Every bottle, hand crafted.
At Bravado Spice, we create products that enables our customers to go further with their food and themselves. We believe that food should be all natural, preservative free, and sustainable. Combining a focus of local produce, a dedication to our community and a passion for all things spicy, we're setting out to bring our creations to everyone we can reach.
We have started this Kickstarter page to gain support in funding the production of the first batch of Bravado Spice's hot sauces. If this project is successful, we will able to move our products into more and more establishments, hopefully outside of Houston and across the country!
What is Roasted Pineapple and Habanero Sauce?
Our first big hit. A blend of only the freshest and juiciest pineapples we can find with fiery habaneros, roasted to perfection. Augmented with a little garlic and bell pepper, this sauce is as unique as is it delicious.
What is Crimson Chili Sauce?
Flavor and texture. Most "red" hot sauces are watery, heavily flavored with salt and vinegar, and added to food as an afterthought. We took a different approach with the Crimson Chili Sauce. We made it thick, bold and powerful. An impressive blend of chile de arbol and guajillo chilis, this sauce is intended to stand on it's own or be poured over everything.
Why we need your help.
We've put countless hours into making these products taste absolutely incredible. All legal requirements and documentation has been completed and a commercial kitchen has been set up for production. But, there are many other costs associated with branding and distributing these products. The money we raise from contributions will be used for:
• Food Production Costs and Manufacturing
• Kitchen Rental and additional equipment
• Bottles, labels and packaging
• Food storage
• Packing and shipping
We have some very awesome rewards for the people who contribute. Our sauces, of course, as well as Kickstarter exclusive merchandise such as eco-tote bags, limited edition t-shirts, stickers and more!
Where we are now and where we are going.
We have several local establishments in Houston that will be carrying our products upon launch, as well as more to come in the future. Our webstore, blog and website will all be available at launch. We will be set up to ship across the country, so even if you don't live in Houston, we can get our products to you!
YES! If you pledge $50 or $100 you will now receive a limited edition Bravado Spice t-shirt.
Each bottle is 10oz.
We do love our locks but understand the importance of keeping it on our heads and out of your sauce. We wear hair nets through all processes to make a perfect product.
Yes, please message for details.
If you're not in Houston, or can't pick up your reward directly from us, please check our shipping notes on the rewards.
