Now in its 20th year, the Fiery Food Challenge, produced by Spicy Food Productions and presided over by a blind panel of independent VIP judges, honors the top spicy and zesty foods of the year in the categories of Consumer Ready (open and serve), Cook-Off (used in mixed or cooked application), Marketing and Best New Product. The Fiery Food Challenge ranks among the top two most distinguished award programs recognizing the best hot, spicy and zesty food products in America. The competition was held in conjunction with 2019 ZestFest at the Irving Convention Center from January 25-27, 2019.

“We have always known that our seasoning blends are something to be proud of,” said Mike Hernandez, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Chief Spice Officer of Casa M Spice Co™. “Winning these awards means that our peers in the industry have also recognized and endorse our products as among the best on the market.”

In addition to winning several awards, Casa M Spice Co™ leveraged the services of Media Cars 500 to drive excitement and traffic to their booth. Using a branded car and their Engagement Street Team, Media Cars 500 delivered an exceptional boost in foot traffic. Manny Hernandez, Co-Founder and COO of Casa M Spice Co™, credited the efforts of Media Cars 500 with 50% of the traffic at the booth. When asked if the car was a huge hit, he responded: “‘Huge hit’ is an understatement! I would say 50%, and this is likely a low estimate, of everyone who came to the booth mentioned the race car. Their efforts helped with both brand recognition in a crowded show environment as well as conversion and sales in the booth itself.”
