When it comes to the Scoville Scale, I like it hot. I also really enjoy buying items that are made in Colorado. If you happen to like to add a little spice to your life when it comes to cooking, I need to tell you about this Colorado-based pepper company.

Located in Arvada, Colorado, the Flatiron Pepper Co. does pepper flakes on a whole new level. I have been using Flatiron's pepper products for years now and I cannot imagine not having a bottle or three in my spice cabinet. They're that good.

Colorado's Flatiron Pepper Co.

The company was started by pizza fanatics named Matt and Mike. The duo was out to lunch one day at a pizzeria and were not blown away by the typical red pepper flakes that usually come as a condiment for a slice of pizza.

Soon after that revelation over lunch, Matt and Mike created Flatiron Pepper Co. The unique blends that Flatiron Pepper Co. has never include salt or other additives. Just pure pepper bliss in a jar.

Flatiron Pepper Co. offers more than a dozen different pepper blends to choose from the Sweet Heat blend all the way up to the superhot blend called "I Can't Feel My Face". My overall favorite blend that is always in my kitchen is the Hatch Valley Green.

This blend isn't too spicy but packs a bunch of flavor in every flake. The four chile peppers that make up the Hatch Valley Green blend include Big Jim, Sadia, Jalapeno, and Habanero. A few of the many pepper blends from Flatiron Pepper Co. include:

  • Sweet Heat - a blend of Scotch Bonner, Ancho, and Red Bell peppers.
  • Smoke Show - a blend of Chipotle, Smoked Ghost, and Carolina Reaper peppers.
  • Green Ghost - a blend of both green and red Ghost peppers.
  • UC Biber - featuring chiles grown in the region of Turkey and Syria with Aleppo, Maras, and Urga Biber chiles.
  • I Can't Feel My Face - the hottest of the hot from Flatiron Pepper Co. featuring Carolina Reaper, Moruga Scorpion, Ghost Pepper, and Habanero Peppers.

We all know that the holidays are right around the corner. What do you get someone who is very hard to shop for? Simple. If that person likes to spice their food up, pepper flakes from Flatiron Pepper Co. make the perfect gift. I suggest my personal favorite, the Hatch Valley Green, for pretty much anyone. If you want to go all in, I would say the Ultimate Gift Set is hands down the best gift to give to your favorite pepper lover.
