"When we first launched this special, limited OLD BAY offering in early 2020, we were excited to see the amazing response it received. We knew our loyal Chesapeake-area fans would embrace this hot sauce as the winter escape it was intended to be, however we quickly discovered that fans all over America, and even the world, were seeking it out. We’ve been fielding requests for its return ever since," said Jill Pratt with OLD BAY. "OLD BAY fans are extremely passionate and loyal, so we are happy to let them know our hot sauce is back for this summer."
