    Hi. I am so excited about this giveaway. I recently visited beautiful Puerto Rico with my family and while there we were impressed with the flavorful Puerto Rican piques. So before heading back home, we got a few bottles of your hot sauces to try them out. I purchased them at Dufry in the San Juan Airport and since we had already passed through security, I carried them in my handbag. Unfortunately, during our connecting flight we had to go through airport security again and they were all taken away 🙁 since the bottles surpassed the maximum number of ounces allowed on carryons. I tried to convince them to allow them in, but they say they couldn’t. They threw them in the trash 🙁 This was a few days ago and I’ve been SO upset by this that I came to your website to buy them again because I want to try them so much. It would be wonderful if I won this giveaway since I already paid for them once, but I did not get to enjoy them 🙁
