The History of
Vivi’s Original Sauce™
Vivi’s Original Sauce™
"Classic" Carnival Mustard wasn’t always known by this
name, but it was always known for it’s sensationally savory flavor
that made eating always fun and definitely memorable!!!
Over 50 years ago a unique blend of sweet, tangy,
and spicy flavors was hand-stirred and brought to taste bud perfection
by a dearly devoted husband and wife team. They took this savory sensation
on the road to carnivals and fairs in the Heartland of America. Children
and adults alike constantly crowded their concession stand. Each patiently,
yet eagerly, awaiting their turn for the old fashioned service-with-a-smile
while being served what was then known as the couple’s, “Famous
Hot Sauce” laced on top of a freshly boiled foot long hot dog
that was tucked into a softly steamed hot dog bun. “Mmm! Mmm!
Mmm!” was hummed throughout the midway after each and every bite.
It was so darn tasty that people craved for more. Like clock work, these
sauce lovers constantly returned to their town’s spring carnivals
and summer fairs simply to line up and once again enjoy the flavor.
But eating this gourmet sensation only once a year wasn’t enough
to quench their cravings, and they needed more. To satisfy their taste
bud’s hankering for this specialty food that they couldn’t
find anywhere else, many took to following the couple from fair to fair.
This went on year after year after year after year, until one summer
this amazing couple could not be found. It had been almost 50 years
that this beloved couple had been bringing smiles to the publics’
faces. But just like the music of the carousel that gently slows at
night’s end, and the turning of the Ferris wheel that eventually
comes to a halt, this grand couple also came to need some rest. The
problem was that their loyal fans wouldn’t let them. They didn’t
stop searching for them and their savory, tangy, sweet and sour, heatedly
hot, mustardy sauce. They had to have it, and they wanted to know where
to buy it.
The secret recipe for this homemade and hand-stirred
delight was passed down to their youngest granddaughter to take to market
and share with all, no matter how near or far from its traditional fairgrounds
founding. In honor of the wife that this husband loved more than life
itself, and for the great Americans that came year after year to the
carnivals and fairs that made up so much of what America is about, the
“famous hot sauce” took the new name:
