Tapatío Hot Sauce Partners with comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias to Celebrate 50th Anniversary

Tapatio Hot Sauce

Tapatío Hot Sauce, a national leader in the hot sauce industry, is celebrating 50 years since its creation in Southern California. And to commemorate this milestone, Tapatio has produced an exclusive 50th Anniversary memorabilia collection and all-new commemorative merchandise line. As part of the anniversary celebrations. Tapatío Hot Sauce has partnered with comedian and actor Gabriel " Fluffy" Iglesias to create a limited edition bottle, which features " Fluffy" and his beloved pet chihuahuas. The collaboration also includes a video series available on all social media platforms featuring " Fluffy" with local celebrity chefs including Chef Ludo Lefebvre from Petit Trois, Bricia Lopez from Guelaguetza, Chef Mario Christerna from Brooklyn Ave Pizza, and Chef Wes Avila of Angry Egret Dinette. “Like so many Californians, I grew up enjoying Tapatío with my family and friends, and have continued to do so for more than 30 years.” said " Fluffy". “And It’s a real honor and privilege to be featured on the front of the iconic bottle today; Tapatío is Mexican royalty – and I get to be King for a day!” Founder and CEO Jose-Luis Saavedra, Sr established the company’s humble beginnings in 1971. He had been laid off from his job and needed to provide for his family. At the time there were only three major hot sauce brands on the market, and Jose-Luis felt his own hot sauce tasted better. This inspired him to create Tapatío (the name given to people from Guadalajara, Mexico, his childrens’ birthplace). To make it happen, Jose-Luis leased a 750 square-foot building in Maywood, in Los Angeles County, and began with only the 5-ounce bottle size. Fourteen years later, Saavedra Sr realized he needed a bigger warehouse and moved Tapatío into a 8,500 square-foot warehouse less than a mile away. His three children, then out of college, joined him. His son, Luis Saavedra Jr, graduated medical school but gave up a career in medicine to help his father grow the family business. He is now Vice President of Tapatío and runs the company with his two sisters, Dolores Saavedra-McCoy, who completed law school and is now a Partner & Director of Merchandising, and Jacqueline Saavedra-Mora, who has a degree in Business Administration and is a Partner and Chief Financial Officer. Additionally, three members of the third generation of the Saavedra family also work at Tapatío. And it’s as a result of this continuity that Tapatío has remained true to its humble origins, producing the same high-quality, great-tasting product that can be found in households across the country and around the world. Today, Tapatío is housed in a custom-built, state-of-the-art, 30,000 square-foot facility in Vernon, CA. And Jose-Luis Saavedra Sr continues to work seven days a week, regularly visiting the warehouse. It’s thanks to his original vision that Tapatío is the #1 hot sauce on the West Coast, the third best-selling hot sauce in the United States, and is exported to more than 30 countries. “When Tapatio was founded more than five decades ago, we had no idea it would grow into the household name it has become today,” said Luis Saavedra Jr. “We’re still dedicated to providing quality products and service to our customers, and we’re always tailoring our approach to meet our customers’ needs, both at home and around the world. We’re excited to celebrate 50 years of business with Fluffy and look forward to another 50 years to come!” Link to Tapatio webstore: Shop — Tapatio Hot Sauce View the Tapatio 50th Anniversary video series here: Tapatio YouTube Channel Tapatio Foods, LLC was founded in 1971 from humble beginnings.

What You Need to Know About Heart Disease

YourUpdateTV

As the world looks with hope to the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, there lies another ongoing health crisis that, according to the American Heart Association (AHA), kills more Americans than anything else: heart disease. Recently, leading cardiologist and Director of Cardiology at State of the Art Cardiology, Dr. John Osborne, teamed with his patient Mike Hodge on a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss managing cardiovascular risk. A video accompanying the announcement can be found here: https://youtu.be/XKKKCVCofew In the last year, heart disease claimed more than 690,000 lives in the U.S., which is staggeringly more than the reported 345,000 lives lost to COVID-19, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control. While the prevalence of the disease – and incredible amounts of research – would lead many to think the risks and standard practices would be widely known, the overwhelming amount of information and data can actually make it harder to assess risk and treatment options, which can be confusing for physicians and patients alike. For example, many people are unaware that after a failed outcomes study, the FDA revoked the approval of a class of drugs called fenofibrates — such as TriCor ® (fenofibrate) and Trilipix ® (fenofibric acid) — concluding that fenofibrates should not be used in combination with statins for CV risk reduction because the risks outweigh the benefits. As a result, millions of patients at risk of heart attack or stroke may be unknowingly receiving medications that have not been shown to reduce cardiovascular (CV) risk on top of statins. According to Dr. Osborne, patients who are taking a fenofibrate, in addition to a statin, are taking a drug that has not shown CV benefit and instead just exposes them to the potential risks of these medicines which outweigh the benefits. For more information, visit itscleartomenow.com About Dr. John Osborne: Dr. Osborne has been recognized as a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and a Fellow of the National Lipid Association. His clinical interests include preventive cardiology, metabolic syndrome and diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure, cholesterol disorders, coagulation disorders, and cardiovascular genetics. He is the founder and director of State of the Heart Cardiology in Dallas, Texas and is currently the National Director of Cardiology, Preventive Cardiology, and Lipidology for the Low T Centers and HerKare.

Tayler Jade

WYA’s continued global growth is further propelled with two dance remixes by world renowned DJ’s Mikey Francis and Marc Stout. Ten weeks after Tayler Jade’s initial chart introduction, “WYA'' breaks the Top 50 on the Mediabase Activator Chart at #47 with national radio and fan support, 10+ million global digital streams, and club banging dance remixes by world renowned DJ’s and Producers. Released on April 9, 2021, by Jade Entertainment, “WYA” has created a global buzz and viral wave that has captured the attention of radio, media, fans, DJ’s and music producers all over the world. Today WYA holds strong at #47 on the Top 40 Mediabase Activator Chart and expected to break the Top 40 in the coming days. As an independent artist, Tayler’s ascent across all platforms highlights that technology and talent are the great equalizer to big labels and huge marketing budgets. “For a new independent artist with no major label support to see this type of success this early on, proves that new ideas and hard work pays off and no dream is too big.” – Thomas Barsoe, Founder OC Hit. In mid-April “WYA” was playing on Top 40 radio stations in the United States. Today, it is spinning on 30+ BDS reporting stations. In early June, its remixes started blowing the roof off the hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas with the support of some of the best local resident DJ’s of: Omnia, Hakkasan, Wet Republic, XS and Encore. Mikey Francis, Marc Stout and Tony Arzadon have made a tremendous impact on the success of “WYA” in the EDM/Dance world. In the first three weeks of release, Mikey Francis’ remix of “WYA” is quickly approaching 3 million streams; the Marc Stout and Tony Arzadon remix hit 2.5 million in the first 12 days. “It's been a pleasure to work with such a kind and talented creative as Tayler, and the speed at which fans are connecting with her work is quite astounding. The moment I heard WYA I knew that this was going to be a big hit and the response from the club crowds has been nothing short of amazing.” – Mikey Francis “Tony and I only get involved in projects we are excited about and see potential in and this was one of those. The response to our mix of ‘WYA’ has been insane and we are excited to see how far this track continues grow worldwide!” - Marc Stout Tayler Jade is connecting with music fans at a very rapid pace and her vision of building a connected community that not only share her love for music, but with a mission of using her community to impact the lives of children around the world will hopefully become the blueprint for other artists to follow. “Music brings people together at a spiritual level. Tayler has that rare gift, and it is inspiring to see how she wants to use her gift to help feed and educate children all around the world. Her idea of bringing people together through music in order to bring awareness to these children in need is a beautiful thing to watch and as her father words cannot express how proud of her I am.” – John Royce Lynch As an independent artist, to find her place alongside her hero’s and some of the biggest artists in the world in the first 6 months of her debut is a blessing and an impressive accomplishment. While Tayler’s music continues to climb the charts, she manages to remain grounded and grateful for the support of her family, fans and team. “As a fan of music myself, I am humbled by all the love and kindness that my team and I have been shown as we embark on this journey to create social impact that can make a difference in the lives of those in need. It really means the world to me to have your support and I cannot thank you enough.” – Tayler Jade The excitement surrounding “WYA” has prompted an early release of Tayler’s next single “Whatever You Say” which will be available for pre-sale Friday, July 9th and officially released August 6,2021. This will be the last of the 3 singles to round out this initial public introduction phase to assess community response to Tayler Jade’s original music and brand. TAYLER JADE is an American Pop/R&B singer-songwriter. Her debut “Dual Single” released on February 12, 2021 under her own label JADE ENTERTAINMENT, is climbing the TOP 40 Media Base Activator Chart alongside the biggest artists in the world. Part One of her dual release “Temporary” and Part Two “WYA” seem to have connected with music fans worldwide, with over several million streams on all the major streaming platforms in only a few short months and continuing to climb.
