The Chilli Project

Happy thursday, everyone! Today I have some great news to share!

It’s taken a little while to sort out, on both my end and theirs, but The Chilli Project are finally featuring in the sidebar as my first ever paid affiliate link. Which means not only that can you easily check them out but also that anything you buy, while doing so, directly supports this site. And, considering the quality of their products, I’d call that a major win-win!

Because no, I haven’t written reviews of The Chilli Product for this site and I don’t intend to – My impartiality is a matter of pride – but I have written many of the blurbs for theirs and I’ve tried most of their range, in the process.

As I mentioned in my introduction to them, the Chilli Alchemist were a real favourite of mine. Folks who made some of the most delicious and delightfully wacky products out there. Who were a big inspiration for me becoming a reviewer. And who were kind enough to help me out with popping candy samples when my own finances were at their lowest.

They were small, yet successful and have had a huge impact on both my cooking and my life as a whole but, at the end of today, they’re going away due to the owners’ declining health.

So I’d like to recommend that you slide on over to the link in my sidebar to check them out and try something from their range. Perhaps their delightful matcha sauce or the Book of Melliculus – A gift set of all four of their amazing popping candy flavours.

And, if you’re getting here after the fourteenth of february 2019, why not check out one of their parting recommendations instead? That’s what I’m going to be doing for the rest of today.
