this list. Not only do they carry their own house brands, but any kind of hot sauce you could want. Curious about the heat level? Check the shelf. The sauces are rated for your taste buds. There are sample bars to try many of the sauces, and samples using their products. I walked out with my favorite, Southern Peach and Vidalia Onion, slightly sweet and of medium heat, and my hubby's pick - Autumn in the Smokies, a good, solid medium heat sauce that screams buffalo wings. But if you aren't a chile head or a hot sauce connoisseur, don't despair. The Pepper Palace has tons of BBQ sauces, marinades, rubs, salsas, and dip mixes. But what impressed me the most was the fact you could tell the folks that worked there loved what they did. They were extremely friendly, encouraging customers to try samples and assisting them in the floor with their impressive product knowledge.
The meals were served with a small glass of apple cider, a basket of apple fritters - hush puppy-like critters with finely diced apples, and apple butter. Mmmmmm....apple butter. I can't think of a thing that wouldn't be better dunked in that apple butter. As you can see, I came home with a jar. After a wonderful meal, we headed over to the barn where I snagged the apple butter and honey. Boy, the apple cider was tempting to get, but I needed a reason to go back soon. Curiously, among the many items they had made from the things they grow there, there was a hot sauce made with peaches and Vidalia onions, like I picked up from the Pepper Palace. I just might have to do a comparison between the two sometime.
