The Sauceman's Satchel. A one-of-a-kind sauce-transport device to save your taste bud's ass.
The Sauceman's Satchel started as a little spark I had a few years ago while I was on a super-awesome world tour with the rock band Tenacious D. We were on a flight to Europe - my first time on an international flight - and the food I was served on the plane was pretty weak! I thought, "Damn, some hot sauce would really be great right now."
So here's the idea:
Design a small, belt-carryable, padded bag that could protect three vials which you could use to transport your favorite sauces in manageable quantities wherever you went, and most importantly, they would be allowed through security at the airport! Since we all know that airplane food is essentially flavorless bio-matter, this idea was not only a genius stroke, but a life-enhancing, cure-all fountain-of-youth.
It doesn't stop there!
In using these prototypes, we've found a million great uses for the Satchel. It's a perfect way to bring things like cinnamon, nutmeg, or fancy creamer to liven up sub-par work coffee, or you could fill a couple vials with a liquor of your choice to throw a shot in your free beverage on the airplane. It's better than a flask because you can give yourself more than one choice.. also you wont look like an alcoholic!

A fully functioning, market-ready, tough-as-nails, sauce-lover's companion. Seriously, throw it against the wall, it will laugh in your face before helping you melt it off!
Isn't the branding a little.. well, loud?
Yes, future models (ie > yours) will just have a small, tasteful fabric tag instead of the big vinyl patch. This will allow us, or others, to put whatever we/they want on the front or, of course, nothing at all. If a company wants to use them for promotional materials, or a fun new product for their shelves, they can brand them with their own logos, or even sports teams, or literally anything you can think of.
So what's next? Where does your contribution go?
Specifically, we need $10,000 for one large order of Satchels. This is the only way to drive down the cost per unit enough to make different colors, and get enough inventory to really get them out there! We have a manufacturer lined up who can make them to our specifications, within this budget! The colors we decided on from the chart for this run, which your investment will help pay for, are blue, black, red, and camo! Eventually we'll get around to making all these and more!..
..Also, your investment will open up the opportunity for us to sell to distributors, and wholesale to merchants!
Hopes and Dreams..
I believe there's no reason why this product should not be available in sporting goods stores such as REI, Dick's, or Bass Pro Shops. With an investment early on, we can fund this first run, which will help us develop new versions in the future, from small one-vial versions, to larger versions with larger vials to accommodate all kinds of different sauces, rubs, spices, or marinades. Imagine the high-end leather version with custom branding! It's the perfect gift for the guy that has everything! "The Flask for Sauce-a-holics," The Sauceman's Satchel!
