"La Familia Sets," featuring apparel and goods inspired by the hot sauce brand's newest products, will be offered for free starting June 28th, while supplies last
HUNT VALLEY, Md., June 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Cholula®, makers of the #1 Mexican Hot Sauce in the World*, is launching a limited-edition streetwear drop in partnership with UPRISERS, the community-driven streetwear brand. Available for free while supplies last, the collection will be offered to consumers as a set, featuring apparel and goods from the collaboration, as well as samples of the new Cholula products. This partnership comes on the heels of the recent category expansion for Cholula, which introduced new lines of taco seasonings and salsas and marked the brand's first-ever venture beyond bottled sauces.
"Cholula has been known as a hot sauce household staple for over three generations. With the recent launch of salsas and taco seasonings, we're excited to keep spicing things up with our first-ever streetwear collaboration with UPRISERS," said Valda Coryat, North America Vice President of Marketing for McCormick & Company. "Inspired by both brands' cultural roots and in celebration of the growing familia of products Cholula offers, the limited-edition drop aims to celebrate everything consumers already love about Cholula while commemorating the launch with these bold, limited-edition designs. We can't wait to see fans show their love for Cholula in new and exciting ways – from their plate to their streetwear."
The limited-edition collection features five unique pieces – an authentic Mercado-style tote bag, an oversized "100 Years" heavyweight tee, a holographic "We Are UPRISERS x Cholula" sticker, a La Familia trucker hat, and a first-of-its-kind hoodie poncho. Each "La Familia Set" will include the new Cholula® Original Salsa and the new Cholula® Original Recipe Mix taco seasoning, along with four products from the streetwear drop, offering consumers the option to select between the trucker hat or the hoodie poncho.
"We are more than just a clothing brand; we are champions of unheard voices and untold stories," declared Michelle K. Hanabusa, founder of UPRISERS. "Discovering that Cholula is one of the only hot sauce brands with an iconic female figure on their label struck a chord with me. In a streetwear industry largely dominated by men, this singular fact resonated deeply and why it felt important for UPRISERS to collaborate with Cholula to celebrate this significant moment. It's in the UPRISERS DNA to find moments like these that can be conversational starters with our family and friends."
The sets will be free to consumers starting Wednesday, June 28th at 9 AM PDT/12 PM EDT at WEAREUPRISERS.com.
