Dexter and the Gringo Bandito crew met up with OC Weekly writer Gustavo Arellano (famous for his Ask A Mexican column) and shared all the ins and outs of making and selling the kick ass hot sauce.

This is very interesting, thanks for sharing it! :)
I remember seeing something similar to this a couple of days ago, I even posted it (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1393542&postcount=475) on the interviews thread.
I like the author's name, by the way. :P

Dexter should start another band with his hot sauce, the name would be :

THE SPICE BOYS.

what do you think?
(of course it will smash the spice girls ;))

"People who like hot sauce are a certain type of people. They’re passionate. They’ll have a bottle with them wherever they go."

Hey, I can relate. Besides the ones in my fridge, I have Gringo Bandito bottles at my parents house and at work :).

''The biggest problem McCollum says the company faces is theft—restaurants keep reporting that consumers steal Gringo Bandito bottles.''

Haha best problem ever! :D

I just read it too - cool article - very indepth. Why is it when most things that start out as a joke, they end up being so successful?? :confused: Go figure.

I want some of this hot sauce. Right. Fucking. Now. :eek:

Bottling day for Gringo Bandito: Two massive vats—one holding 250 gallons, another holding 230 gallons—are filled with the ingredients to make Gringo Bandito. More ingredients still need to be prepped for a second round. Holland couldn’t make it—the Offspring, you know—so running the operation is Florencia Arriaga, a stout woman with stylish eyeglasses who has been a friend to the Holland family for more than a decade. “Brian is a kind man,” she says, referring to Holland by his given name. “He has a lot of money, a lot of fame, but every time he talks to me, he always asks. ‘Florencia, may I? Can I, please?’ He doesn’t make you feel like a nobody; he treats you like family. He’s bien cool. My kids are very proud that their mommy works for the guy from the Offspring.”

Dexter is awesome!

You should be able to. I ordered some and had it sent to The Netherlands. It's very expensive though. I think I paid a total of $50 for the order itself, and another $100 for shipping. But it was worth it though.

But I must say it was delivered VERY fast. Within a week.

Yeah, I was just looking into getting myself some but after looking at the shipping cost to South Africa at $170 using UPS, the only shipping for international distribution ... it would explain why it is so expensive and so fast. I'm having second thoughts, for the time being anyway.

So I finally got my bottle of GB yesterday and for some strange reason I was compelled to try it out on (of all things) baby carrots first! (I know very strange, but it was the afternoon and veggie sticks were the only thing allowed) LOL. Whew hoo hoo woo!! Is it hot?!? It is mucho caliente hawt! and very good - just like I knew it would be. HOWEVER, later on, I slipped that lovely bottle into my purse and took it to the restaurant with me where it was put to proper good use - oysters on the half shell babay! - oh yeah! together with my jack & coke-zero, and some horseradish all on a saltine - YEAH! very nice! Next, it managed to make it to my entree plate right along side blackened mahi mahi, a few skewered shrimp, and green beans. Delicious! And the entree was pretty good too. ;)

Thanks Dexter! You're awesome. :D

An interesting article, it's nice to know some more about this sauce. It makes me laugh a bit, it's so crazy. :p Dexter seems to have success with everything he tries his hand at! I'll have to taste GB if I see a bottle somewhere.
