About

Gimme My Gonzo's
Gimme My Gonzo's
 

As Dr. Gonzo, I developed a knack for creating addicting, award-winning, all natural hot pepper relishes, mustard blends, hot sauces, dry rubs, and more that that contain no preservatives, no fillers, no fluff and no unnecessary stuff.

"World Famous" Peppermash
"World Famous" Peppermash

Many of you have come to love these products in crazy combinations, award winning recipes and amazing concoctions and I agree that you have been without them for far too long. You've told me that you want them back. You tell me that you need your Gonzos and have asked for them repeatedly. You've sent me messages in empty bottles pleading for a refill: the refrain is the same, "Gimme My Gonzos"!

I whole heartedly agree. You have been without your Gonzo products for far too long. It was high time that we did something about it. But to do it right I need your help with this “Gimme My Gonzo’s” Kickstarter campaign.

Let me first say that after years of exhaustive and very expensive research, I have found just about every way NOT to do this business. With this Kickstarter campaign we will finally raise the funds to produce our products consistently and in bulk.

The increased buying power will reduce costs at launch and give everyone access to the Gonzo core products all year long.

We’ll have infrastructure to develop and streamline your online order experience and provide consistent and reliable delivery of orders straight to your door.

We'll be able to hire folks that are passionate and knowledgeable about the products. Folks that can do the things that I have no patience or talent for so I can get back to doing what I do best: Spicing up your lives.

We can get the ball rolling and the kettles cooking by achieving our base goal of $75K. With that money, we will be able to produce all the products in the $100 “Heavy Hitter” Sweet Spot rewards

Garlicmash!
Garlicmash!

Garlicmash: our #1 requested product is a blend of freshly ground garlic, olive oil, cayenne pepper that you're sure to fall in love with (not just for breakfast any longer).

"Free Range" Jalapenomash
"Free Range" Jalapenomash

"Free Range" Jalapenomash: our staple food group good for breakfast, lunch, dinner and between meal snacks is a blend of jalapenos, onions, garlic, vinegar and spices that has the 'patent pending' 3 to 6 minute burn.

"Industrial Strength" Supermash
"Industrial Strength" Supermash

"Industrial Strength" Supermash: Jalapenomash's bigger brother designed or those that think that jalapenos are just for kids, this mash adds a wonderful Habenero blend to extend the burn time and the fun factor.

""Professional Grade" Habeneromash
""Professional Grade" Habeneromash

"Professional Grade" Habeneromash: This is IT. The 2007 Golden Pepper Award Winner as the best hot pepper relish in the nation according to Chili Pepper Magazine. No fillers. No fluff or any unnecessary stuff here kids.

XX Mustard Plaster
XX Mustard Plaster

XX Mustard Plaster: Our mildly addicting honey mustard with an amazing cayenne kick in the finish.

Blackfly Mustard
Blackfly Mustard

Moose River Adirondack Blackfly Mustard: Our blend of English and Chinese mustard infused with freshly cracked black pepper (or is it only the finest Adirondack Oysters gleaned from only the best bull blackflys after our annual blackfly round up?).

The usual suspects.
The usual suspects.

Buffalo Balm Hot Sauce: The ugliest hot sauce you'll ever love that is rumored to have aphrodisiac like properties. A blend of jalapenos and habeneros with a nice garlic and citrus finish that will add that certain "I don't know what" as the French so eloquently say to so many dishes.

Wazoo Juice: Heat, citrus, ginger with a citrus and garlic finish. Sweet heat that is good and good for you.

Smoke Isle. Elixir: Our version of a Barbados style mustard sauce that goes so well straight on sandwiches or is the perfect addition to soups, marinades and your favorite recipes!

Much love.
Much love.

Wild Beaver Rub: Cajun Spice and Lemon Pepper met online and this is there kid. Every Beaver needs a good rub and now you'll have some too.

One Hump Dry Rub No. 2: Our original dry rub developed for the good folks of the New England Barbecue circuit. This all natural, multi purpose spice blend is a 'go to' for soups, stews, stir fry, party dips, pizza and more. Have fun and be creative.

But Amazing things will happen when we reach our stretch goals.

-$150K. EVERYONE who pledges $50 or more will receive an additional 5 Oz. hot sauce or 6 Oz. mustard of our choosing and a Gimme My Gonzo’s tee shirt.

-$300K EVERYONE who pledges $50 or more will receive an additional Dr. G’s Tee (of our choosing) and two additional 5 Oz. hot sauces (of our choosing).

-$500K? EVERYONE gets a 5 Oz. rub of our choice and a, 11” X 18” print of the GIMME MY GONZO’s poster (under development) and a code for 10% off their next online purchase.

SPREAD THE LOVE AND (once we hit the Stretch Goals) YOU REAP THE BENEFITS.

So, if you really want it all and you really need it now, let’s make 2015 a good year to keep Bland at Bay.  Thank you for your continued support and keep doing that voodoo that you do so well.

Much love people.

Dr. G

Risks and challenges

Our challenges are many but with our previous experience and with the help of the new team we plan on bringing on board, your favorite Gonzo products will be back for good.

We'll be dealing with a new co-packing facility to produce your condiments in bulk and that always involves a few kinks that will need to be worked out before the process is running smoothly; re-tooling our labels, sourcing quality ingredients are only a few of the hurdles and hoops that we are planning on jumping over and through.

We also need to make our online order and shipping system "Idiot Proof" (that means so that I won't be able to screw it up) giving you an easy, straight forward and consistent on line order experience.

“We must always remember that we are only stewards of this brand. Our product line and our brand has been freely given to our customer base. With this in mind, we really only have one simple job: to service each order quickly, consistently and correctly. Once we set up the proper system we will have no choice but to perform that one job well. Each time, every time and then my friends, everything else will fall into place.” -Dr. G
