Hot off the shelves: Logan native's sauce hits local store

Logansport native's hot sauce hits local store

(Continued)

The project was just something fun, Richey said.

“I am a pastor full-time, so it wasn’t like I was looking to do more than that,” Richey said. “We thought it might be possible because over the past decade, craft producers from granola to beer exploded. We went from not caring to having a product in a bottle.”

The product started being sold commercially two years ago.

There are three hot sauce flavors, OMG Hantu Honey, Island Style Pineapple and OMG Original Recipe. The Hantu Honey features a Ghost Chile, Richey said. He describes the sauce as an edible ghost flavor. He even said he likes to drizzle it on vanilla ice cream and asks others to try it.

The mild sauce is what people will recognize as a chili sauce. He describes it as all sweet and no heat. The pineapple sauce is fruity, sweet and the least hot of all of the hot sauces. The original sauce is full-flavored and savory, Richey said.

The prices of the sauces on the website range from $5.45 to $8.95. The mild sauce can be found at D&R Fruit Market in Logansport for $3.99, Richey said. Ten percent of profits from sales of OMG’s Marcella’s Mild Sauce go toward Alzheimer’s research.

In addition to D&R Fruit Market, It is sold in stores in Michigan and has been shipped coast to coast to places like California, New York, Florida and Texas. One of the company’s biggest customers is the owner of a food truck named Burrito Bus located in Lafayette. Staff there love the pineapple hot sauce, Richey said.

“It’s pretty emotional for me to have product in the town I grew up,” Richey said. “There was a moment when I found out where I was misty eyed because of my mom. It was special and I know how much it would mean to my mom to know her recipe is in a community she loved.”
