Ben's Sweet & Hot
We began making this mustard over 30 years ago for our own personal use. When friends would come over for barbecues and comment on how good the mustard was, we would naturally just give them a jar. We NEVER, EVER, thought of this as being a business. Before long, we were making more for friends than we were for our own personal use. We entered this mustard in the Fiery Food Challenge in 2001 and won first place in the condiments division, and 3rd place for best new product of the year. We didn’t have it in a store yet, but I wanted to see how it stood up to the competition. The next couple of years were quite hectic in our life; we sold a business, moved, and took care of an ailing mother. In 2004 we entered the competition again and won first place. In 2005 we placed second in the Scovie Awards. This confirmed what we always knew, Ben’s Mustard is an exceptional product.
