The folks at Ford’s Foods have known for years that consumers were using their Bone Suckin’ Sauce as the basis of their chicken wings recipe. Sometimes they did that with Bone Suckin’ Sauce by itself, sometimes by amping up the heat by mixing in one of the hotter Bone Suckin’ varieties.
Now Ford’s Foods has bowed to customer demand with Bone Suckin’ Wing Sauce in a Honey & Habanero version that the company says has the right combination of sweet and heat to be poured onto chicken wings right out of the bottle.
Bone Suckin’ Wing Sauce – Honey & Habanero is gluten free, non-GMO, dairy free and kosher. It’s available in 4-ounce, 16-ounce, 78-ounce and 150-ounce sizes.

And that’s not all – in keeping with this show’s focus on providing retailer attendees with real solutions to enhance profitability, IDDBA will offer its Expert Neighborhood for the first time this year. This is an area on the show floor where attendees can meet one-on-one with experts to discuss questions, industry challenges, and business problems. The association has an absolutely phenomenal line-up of industry stars who are prepared to discuss issues like engaging customers and employees, complying with the Food Safety Modernization Act and the evolving rules about product and menu labeling, and dealing with food waste, enhancing innovation and product profitability. Twenty-five minute appointments with these experts can be booked at the show starting on June 3.
