FRANK’S REDHOT was created on the banks of the Ohio River when Jacob Frank began experimenting with Louisiana Sunlongs, a special strain of cayenne peppers that offers a zesty full-bodied taste. The unique essence of these special cayenne peppers is then combined with vinegar and spices, and aged to perfection. The result is history: the perfect blend of flavor and heat® for almost a century and counting. FRANK’S REDHOT is the secret ingredient used in the original Buffalo Wing created in Buffalo, NY in 1964.
