Gindo's First Time at New York ComicCon!

Updated: Oct 26, 2023

Gindo's Spice of Life made its highly anticipated debut at the New York Comic Con just a couple of weeks ago, and the event was nothing short of a spicy success!

The bustling convention, famous for its celebration of pop culture, drew fans from all walks of life, and Gindo's brought a fiery twist to the party. Nestled amongst a sea of colorful costumes and enthusiastic fans, the Gindo's booth quickly became a spicy oasis for attendees. Even the Red Ranger, Steve Cardenas (pictured above on the left with Gindo), frequented the booth in between autographs!

In addition to bringing the year round sauces and hot honey, Gindo's showcased an array of their ultra limited release hot sauces, each with its own distinct personality and flavor profile. From the tangy extra spicy verde, known as "The Crusher," to the smoky and sultry female warrior inspired "The Hammer," the sauces drew in visitors, and it wasn't just the heat that ignited their excitement. The imaginative labels and comic book-inspired branding, including their 1st edition comic book, "Vengeance in the Fiery Valley," written by Trevor Guthke, added an extra layer of appeal, making it the perfect fit for Comic Con superfans.

Throughout the event, Chris, aka the "Gindo," and his partner in crime, Captain J, engaged with visitors, sharing the story behind Gindo's spicy creations. Laughter, excitement, and maybe a few tears ensued, as brave souls sampled the hottest of Gindo's offerings - The Axe, The Hammer and The Crusher.

The response was overwhelmingly positive, with attendees loving the bold and complex flavors that Gindo's brought to the table. For many, it was their first encounter with such a unique blend of heat and taste in a hot sauce, and the company's presence at Comic Con helped to introduce the world of artisanal hot sauces to a whole new audience. But Gindo's Spice of Life at Comic Con was more than just about the sauces; it was a celebration of the community. Comic Con attendees, who already share a passion for all things nerdy and creative, embraced the opportunity to try something new, connect with fellow spice enthusiasts, and take home a piece of the spicy adventure.

With its successful debut at New York Comic Con, Gindo's Spice of Life not only added a dash of heat but also a pinch of creativity to the world of pop culture conventions. As the convention season continues, attendees can look forward to exploring more of Gindo's flavors and experiencing the excitement that only this artisanal hot sauce brand can bring.

Whether you're a comic book aficionado or just a lover of all things spicy, Gindo's Spice of Life's inaugural Comic Con appearance was an event to remember.
