Chef Pii, real name Veronica Shaw, is living her saucy dreams! After the controversial launch of her sweet-and-sour Pink Sauce last summer, the private chef partnered with food product company Dave’s Gourmet to refine the product. Now, Walmart is rolling out the pink food accessory online and in over 4,300 stores nationwide.[-p
Chef Pii told the Los Angeles Times that she wakes up daily with a smile and the urge to keep growing as an entrepreneur.
“Everything is still kind of surreal. But it’s very real. We’ve been working very hard for the pink sauce to come out so soon in 4,300 stores. I mean, it’s crazy. More than anything, I have a smile on my face every day. I wake up, and I do what I have to do to better myself as a person and a businesswoman because there’s somebody else watching me, and I’m giving someone else hope. That’s the biggest gift.”
Walmart will exclusively carry Chef Pii’s creation until July 2023–a partnership that’s been in the works since last summer. And yes, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the pink condiment for commercial sale, according to Dave’s Jan. 11 press release.
“Consumers can now purchase a vegan and gluten-free version of the sensational sauce that Chef Pii had developed in her Miami kitchen. The sauce is manufactured under FDA guidelines in an SQF-certified facility and is shelf-stable.”Image and News Source: The Shade Room
