a word about cajohn's firey foods:
cajohn's is a fantastic local purveyor of spicy foods. until recently they sold limited products at specialty stores in columbus, via phone & internet sales and out of their very-hard-to-find-only-open-bank-hours production facility in one of columbus' most sketchy neighborhoods. they've won about a billion awards all over the country and just opened a booth selling their entire line in the north market. a few months back we ventured out to their facility and the owners were kind enough to give us an impromptu tour of their production facility and chat with us about the production process. if you've got someone on your christmas list who loves spicy foods, you can't go wrong with any of cajohn's products.
in closing: these guys are nice, they turn out consistent, high quality products and in my opinion they're one of columbus' best kept secrets. now, get yourself to the north market and pick up some cajohn's.
