Salsa For Smiles - 2015-137This holiday season, turn up the heat by hosting your very own Spice Bucket Challenge fundraiser!

The Spice Bucket Challenge involves eating a series of extra-hot, eye-watering salsas. It was first launched at our Salsa for Smiles event in October and, as you can see from the photos, was a huge success! Now we’re calling on YOU to put your taste buds to the test by hosting your own Spice Bucket Challenge at home or at work.

How does it work?

The Spice Bucket Challenge involves challenging a friend or colleague to test 3-5 extra hot salsas consecutively. If they make it through the challenge in one piece, you donate $5. If they are unable to complete the challenge, they pay $5. 100% of proceeds will be directed to our international cleft care programs to support children born with cleft lip and palate!

What do I need?Salsa For Smiles - 2015-128

Hosting a Spice Bucket Challenge is simple. All you need are 3-5 salsas ranging in heat according to the Scoville scale and nacho chips. If you want to really spice up your event, you could also considering having some treats to extinguish the fire such as frozen grapes or whipped cream, and some salsa music.

Note: We can provide a few salsas to get you started (while supplies last). Please get in touch if you would like to receive some complimentary salsa generously donated by Hot Sauces Unlimited!
