Haute Mess Kitchen Launches Indiegogo to Bring Its Messes to the Masses

0 Written by: | Sunday, May 10, 2015 4:00pm

Baltimore-based Haute Mess Kitchen produces all-natural dry rubs, seasoning blends and condiments, including its best selling Steak Candy and Chicken Scratch Dry Rubs as well as its (nearly) world-famous Bourbon Bath BBQ Sauce.


The response to the seriously delicious, contagiously fun HMK products has been so amazing that the two unpaid employees of the two-year old company can no longer fill demand on their own! It needs to grow, and its $30,000 Indiegogo campaign will give it the funding it needs to do just that…with your help.

Watch the video below to learn more.  We don’t want to contemplate a world without Steak Candy and Bourbon Bath BBQ Sauce, and neither should you! Click here to donate to the Haute Mess Kitchen Indiegogo.
