Demo: Oma & Popies Wing Dressin' @ The North End Store

All our wing sauce/marinades start off with Guajillo chilies pronounced “wha hee oh", the flavor profile is slightly fruity with a sweet heat, tannic with hints of pine, tart berries and light smoky undertones we then add chunks of garlic, locally grown onions, a blend of fresh Golden Valley apple cider vinegar from Fruitland ID and white vinegar, pure cane brown sugar and lots of flavorful spices. You can see and taste the difference!  Use as a marinade for fish, shrimp, steak, pork, chicken, ribs, grilled veggies, pizza sauces, smoking mop, dipping sauces, basting, glazing or the perfect vinaigrette topping on your favorite salad, yes you heard that right. Oh, did we forget to tell you it’s a “wing sauce” too.   

We have created five wonderful marinades/sauces that will delight your taste buds: Drunk Uncle (Brown Sugar Kentucky Bourbon); Wingin' It: (Sweet & Spicy); Ja Makin’ Me Crazy (Jamaican Jerk); Bayou Venom (Smoky Cajun) and Hawt Mess: (Peppery Sweet Burn).

We make every effort to source REAL ingredients as close to home as possible.  There are no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no unpronounceable chemical preservatives, no gluten, no GMO's, no dairy, no nuts, vegan-friendly and absolutely no high fructose corn syrup! 

We believe our sauces show our zest for life and shared adventures. We hope you will give us chance, you won't be disappointed!

Wine Tasting @ Main Store Tasting Counter

Sokol Blosser Winery has always been a favorite of ours, making delicious, affordable wines with a focus on sustainability and environmental performance. We just brought in two new wines from their Evolution series and we will be pouring the whole lineup on Saturday.

Evolution Red Blend

Evolution Big Time Red has a fresh look with a bright flavor profile and big, round taste. Nero d’avola replaces montepulciano in our 7th edition and blends with sanviovese and  syrah

Evolution White Blend

Intense tropical fruit up front with notes of lychee, melon, lemongrass, limezest and citrus followed by a crisp, clean finish.

Evolution Chardonnay

It would be hard to beat this wine at this price. Its sharp lime skin, lemon, apple and green melon flavors put the fruit front and center, with a barely perceptible touch of residual sugar. Though made entirely in stainless steel, it feels nicely rounded out, finishing with a hint of caramel.

Evolution Riesling

Like a stealthy wolf in sheep’s clothing, our riesling is slightly sweet on the outside yet packs a punch, followed a core of acidity that is so zingy and bright

It used to be that you had two choices when it came to skin care:  Choose a traditional brand with sophisticated anti-aging actives, but run the risk of exposing your body to harmful synthetic additives, or choose a natural skin care line that while safe, did little more than hydrate the skin.  Well, now there’s another choice….
Here at Mad Hippie we formulate our products with two things in mind – safety and efficacy.  We just thought, why can’t you have both?

And, while many skin care lines utilize simply 1-2 active ingredients, requiring a person to buy a multitude of different products, at Mad Hippie we pack each and every bottle chock-full of anti-aging actives, all formulated to compliment one another & work in synergy. 

So, if you are looking for an all natural & safe way to improve the appearance of your skin, you’ve come to the right place.  By putting in only the good stuff & none of the bad, Mad Hippie offers a breakthrough in battling skin discoloration & wrinkles.
