Why Some Salsas Taste Better Than Others

Why does Sweet Kickin Salsa taste better than other commercially made salsa by large, nationally-distributed brands? The answer is simple: fresh ingredients and small batches. That’s it, that’s the whole secret. You can all go home now. Or, if you’re interested in the details, you can keep reading.

Fresh Ingredients

Almost every salsa you have ever tasted has the same basic ingredients:

  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Herbs
  • Spices

Seems simple enough, why exactly are some salsas superior to others? For Sweet Kickin Salsa, we pick our tomatoes at the peak of freshness and make sure there’s minimal time between when they were on the plant and when they go into every jar. There’s no better way to up your salsa game than by using fresh ingredients, but that’s something that a lot of the bigger companies can’t afford to do: when the business model relies on quantity over quality, you get vegetables that aren’t ripe yet, have been on a truck for a week, or just don’t live up to the standards that we set for our salsa.

At Sweet Kickin Salsa we are committed to fresh ingredients, because fresh ingredients just make better salsa. Since we only use fresh ingredients, we don’t have to rely on unpronounceable chemical additives to up our flavor game. That’s right, no preservatives, no additives, just fresh, delicious salsa like I used to make back in my own home kitchen.

Fresh ingredients and the perfect blend of peppers and seasoning are how we do it here at Sweet Kickin Salsa and we don’t plan on changing that anytime soon.

Small Batches Create Tastier Salsa

If you’ve ever seen pictures of a large salsa manufacturer (and I can’t imagine why you would have), you’ll see huge vats of salsa all mixed up at once. This gives consistency but it also gives you something else: boring salsa!

All the ingredients get a chance to shine, instead of everything being turned into a big bowl of spicy tomato juice. Compare the consistency of Sweet Kickin Salsa and any of the big name mass-produced salsas: we’re chunky, and that’s how we like it. Each bite of our salsa has tomatoes, onions, peppers, herbs and spices, and you can taste all the flavors individually and as a whole.

Now that’s my big secret. I recommend making your own salsa at home, at least once, to really taste the difference—or just pick up some Sweet Kickin Salsa, because we still make it the same way, using the same ingredients, as the first time I made my own kitchen salsa that knocked my family’s socks off!
