The Story Behind the Sauce

Howler Monkey Sauce began with two University of North Florida graduates with a dream- to create an all-natural, delicious hot sauce influenced by our home country of Panama. We perfected our sauce by using Aji (ah-hee’) Chombo peppers, first used in Panama by the Antilleans who settled there from various Caribbean Islands.

When friends and neighbors kept asking for more sauce, we bottled it to fulfill another dream- to give back to our community. We started by sending care packages to U.S. military members all over the world hoping to brighten days by adding flavor to their meals. We also proudly support K9s For Warriors, who gives a new “leash” on life to rescue dogs and military heroes suffering from PTSD, and we are honored to employ U.S. Veterans.

We are locally owned and operated in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, bottled in St. Augustine, Florida, and we work hard to source all natural ingredients fresh from Florida! Despite competition and temptation to follow suit of other hot sauce companies, we have kept true to our traditional recipes staying All-Natural, Gluten-Free and free of any thickeners, preservatives, added sugars, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Benzoate, and MSG. Our sauces may settle, but that is BECAUSE they are all-natural – nothing a quick shake of the bottle can’t fix!

We are forever thankful to our loyal customers and fans, and promise we will always strive to bring you a healthy, tasty, and community-minded hot sauce!
