June 30, 2011 // Franchising.com // Missoula, MT – With the summer heating up, there is no better way to enjoy the warmth of summer than with the newest Sauce of the Season. In July, HuHot Mongolian Grills across the United States will launch Mongolian Sunburn, ying and yang of sweet citrus flavors with a tangy and spicy kick, named by one of HuHot's own Facebook fans.
With its exciting flavor, all the new Sauce of the Season needed was a name to fit the taste. HuHot ran a month-long Facebook contest to give the fans the chance to both name the sauce and choose the winner. With over 400 name submissions, Mongolian Sunburn burned the competition with 2,100 votes. Not only did the fan get to name the sauce, but also was the first to taste it at their local HuHot. "Our fans are passionate about HuHot and embraced the opportunity to help name our new Sauce of the Season," says Andy Vap, CEO. "It's great to incorporate the fans ideas into the new products we launch."
Mongolian Sunburn is not only delicious, but also vegan-friendly. It can be mixed with any of the 20+ sauces available to appeal to any palette. Try it with Not-So-Sweet & Sour® to downplay the spicy and kick up the sweet. Hurry to your nearest HuHot because summer doesn't last forever, and neither will Mongolian Sunburn, which fades away by the end of September.
