About

Genesis of Senzu Sauce

Hello, Kickstarter! Thank you so much for checking out my page.

 My name is Josh Boggs and I am the founder/owner of Senzu Sauce - a small batch, craft hot sauce brand that is dedicated to bringing you a hot sauce that Never Sacrifices Flavor For Heat.

It's all too easy creating a hot sauce that is hot; anyone can do it. You just add an abundance of chili peppers and recklessly throw in filler flavors thinking that this is going to be what people want.  But it doesn't have any flavor, it's just insufferably spicy vinegar. The real art of making hot sauce is having that perfect balance between the two, but most companies are unable to find that balance, and it really shows in their products. 

Here is what Senzu Sauce is doing - Senzu Sauce is raising the bar to the highest possible level by culminating intense flavor and lasting yet tolerable heat. Every product that is created has that perfect equilibrium and comes delivered with the Senzu Sauce Promise: Never Sacrifice Flavor For Heat.


Tangy Habanero... what started it all
Tangy Habanero... what started it all

The idea of creating my own hot sauce came to me after the countless, infuriating grocery store trips where I can't find anything spicier or better tasting than the cheap, generic sauces (you know the ones.) Each time I set foot in front of the hot sauce aisle I would think to myself "Is this what is considered hot sauce? People enjoy this?" I wanted to revolutionize the hot sauce culture,  so I set out in hopes of doing just that. After many futile attempts, I would consider my mission complete; I just need to get my name out there and have the hot sauce culture be aware of my product and I know they will agree. 


What these funds will go toward

My goal is $10,000. By backing Senzu Sauce, you will not only help support this company in purchasing bulk materials needed to get the cost of the sauce low enough to where more people can enjoy Senzu Sauce at a reasonable cost, you will also help support Senzu Sauce in:

  • creating future flavors 
  • ordering equipment when needed
  • registering booths at events
  • paying for any/all fees, taxes, forms & paperwork, etc
  • creating a professional website
  • getting Senzu Sauce into as many stores as possible

This amount will be the absolute minimum needed to get Senzu Sauce off the ground and I need your support to make this happen. Whether it is a $10 pledge or a $100 pledge, any and all pledges help towards my dreams of putting Senzu Sauce on shelves across the nation, and eventually the world.


Why I am so passionate about this

I love hotsauce; it is more than just a condiment. Each sauce can potentially be a unique flavor to add to any dish to magnify its taste. There are many hot sauces out there, but they are cheaply made with almost no flavor or heat. I want to help give the world a chance to experience something they have never experienced before, something with intense flavor and lasting heat, a combination you can't find at your local grocery store. I need people to try this product because I know it will be a hit, I know people need something new and different, I know people need a change and Senzu Sauce is that change. The first step towards making this happen is this Kickstarter.

Just one of many ways to use Senzu Sauce
Just one of many ways to use Senzu Sauce

Another reason I love hot sauce is because chili peppers have what are called "capsaicinoids" which trick your brain into thinking that your mouth is literally on fire when it obviously isn't. Thus releasing endorphins and dopamine, giving you a feeling of euphoria or a similar feeling to a "runners high." So even though I may be experiencing pain for a while, it is all worth it afterwards when I experience that incredible sauce high. There truly is nothing like it.

Risks and challenges

There will always be challenges when you are the underdog, but I believe that my product is so good that I do not see any issues in the foreseeable future.
