Alas, they missed a hidden crown jewel in this treasure chest, Me’s Way, made by Chau Tonnu, a first-generation Vietnamese American immigrant in Normandy Park.

It has the spicy kick I expect out of a good chili sauce, and it also has a lot of extra flavors (must be their super-secret seasonings that they add!) that I’ve not had in a chili sauce before. Basically, it’s amazing and makes all my meals with chili sauce taste amazing!”
