If you haven’t heard by now, Capital City Mambo Sauce was featured in an awesome write-up on July 16, 2011 in the Washington Post, a national newspaper.
Originally we thought it was going to be posted in the Metro pages, but was pleasantly surprised to see our names listed on the front page!
Theresa Vargas did a great job highlighting our story and we are overly pleased on how the article turned out.
Arsha Jones was glad the windows in her husband’s truck were tinted. Six months pregnant and craving a taste from her District upbringing, she looked at the container in her lap, considered the 30-minute-plus drive home and decided she couldn’t wait. Eating with her hands and looking, in her words, “like a barbarian,” she swept crunchy chicken wings into pools of reddish-orange goo.
The mambo sauce tasted just as she remembered.
“I was immediately taken back to when I used to eat this food every day,” Jones, who lives in Annapolis. “Before responsibility. Before bills, kids, marriage and being grown-up.”
Capital City’s product should be referred to as Capital City™ mambo sauce. MUMBO is a federally registered trademark of Select Brands LLC.
