Ever wonder what the experts think of Bangor’s “King of Salsa”?

There are lots of people who love to post videos to social media, where they critique various foods, so we thought it would be fun to do a min “deep dive” and see if anyone has given their two cents on our buddy, Todd Simcox and his hugely popular brands of salsa.

In addition to being the meteorologist at WABI TV-5 here in Bangor, he has been running a very successful side hustle, selling his homemade treats all over the state of Maine.

We found taste tests from people like "Bill Moore's Hot & Spicy Reviews", "Mike Jack Eats Heat", and "Jerry Fort The Beer Review Guy". All three of these guys are into sampling products and letting you know their opinion. Think of it as a kind of video Yelp review.

Todd's Salsa started as a hobby in his kitchen in Bangor, Maine, and has grown into a product you can find just about everywhere.

He offers a full range of flavors to choose from mild to wild with something for everybody.

All their products are gluten free, and they use fresh local produce from New England, real garlic and domestic ingredients

His Ghost Pepper Salsa was a 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 Zest Fest First Place Award winner.

Todd's flavors include:

  • Mild salsa
  • Medium salsa
  • Hot salsa
  • Habanero salsa
  • Ghost pepper salsa
  • Chipotle salsa
  • Maple salsa
  • Pineapple salsa
  • Blueberry salsa
  • Salsa verde
  • Guava salsa

Even though Simcox is our pal, and we may be a little biased, we highly recommend that you pick up a jar the next time you go shopping!
