  • Zesty: sweet and tangy tomato based sauce, our most popular sauce since its introduction 40 years ago.
  • Prohibition: our newest sauce, it has a sweet brown sugar start and fiery ghost pepper chili finish. The sweetness perfectly balances the hot heat.
  • Mild: traditional sauce originally created by one of Twin Anchors’ founders, Mrs. Walters.
