The Sauce Junkie Story:

A Family Legacy of Flavor

Welcome to Sauce Junkie, where our story is as rich as the flavors we offer. Our journey began in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, when the Winkleman's and Pung's started blending unique flavors back in 1982 when Grammy married Gramps.

We're a family-owned business with a simple belief: life should be a perfect blend of sweet and spicy.

Inspired by the sweetness of Grammy and the spice of Gramps, our blended family has shared a love of flavors, food, and life since 1982. From these roots, our sons lovingly crafted a sauce filled with American pride. Today, three generations of our family are committed to bringing you the same love, flavor, and experience that have been part of our story for decades.

Join us in celebrating the taste of tradition with Sauce Junkie.
