Presidential Hot Sauce Update
According to the latest polls from Dave's Gourmet, Presidential candidate Barack Obama has taken a huge lead over John McCain! When you buy a bottle of Presidential Hot Sauce, it is a vote for that candidate and the results are tracked on Dave's website. 60% of the voters polled at Dave's website have voted for Obama, while a mere 26% have voted for McCain! What a race! Remember – the profits of the Presidential Hot Sauce race go to fund cancer research, so everyone's a winner! Be sure to check out the results at the Dave's Election Website.

2008 marks the 25th anniversary season of the California endive production. The very first box was picked on Thanksgiving Day, 1983.  During that first season 1600 boxes were packed. California Vegetable Specialties now annually produces over 1/2 million boxes of red and white endives, both conventional and organic.
