January 2021

Well Happy New Year Everyone! I hope this first newsletter of 2022 finds you all healthy and happy and getting 2022 off to a good start. As for Hein Family Kitchen it’s been pretty hectic since I last wrote to you. Right before Christmas we launched our two new flavors, Papa’s Spicy Mango Salsa and Papa’s Ghost Pepper Salsa. We’ve stayed true to our approach to salsa bringing a little bit of sweet with a little bit of heat. Although these flavors are a little more spicy that our Original Medium and Hot flavors, they still focus on bringing the full flavor of the salsa while providing a whole different experience versus our Original recipes while not overwhelming you with spice. The feedback through some of our taste testing and Farmer’s Market sales has been fantastic! I hope you will try them both, I think you will really enjoy them!

The other big news for the start of the year is that Lunds & Byerlys ( agreed to carry all four of our flavors in all of their stores in Minneapolis, MN. Kowalski’s ( will also be expanding our product offerings to carry all four flavors. It’s a great opportunity for us and we’re really looking forward to broadening our availability in the Minneapolis market! I hope those of you in the Minneapolis area will visit your closest retailer and take the opportunity to try them all.

For those of you not in Minneapolis you can still find our salsas at People’s Food Co-Op ( in LaCrosse, WI and we hope to add our two new flavors to their shelves soon as well. And we’re at the same Farmer’s Markets in Katy, TX and Bellville, TX every month:

The Farmer’s Market on Grand Parkway ( - 1225 Grand Parkway (Hwy 99). Katy, TX 77494. Saturdays - 8 a.m. to Noon. We are trying to be there every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.

Bellville Farmer’s Market ( – located at the Jim Bishop Pavilion on North Bell and Palm Street just one block north of the downtown square in Bellville, TX. The market is open the first Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to Noon.

And of course, we are always happy to ship directly to you or your family and friends anywhere in the United States.

We genuinely appreciate all of your support and business this past year. Please keep sharing on Facebook and Instagram and telling your family and friends about our company and products. That continues to be the key to continuing to grow. And seeing this network grow is still my favorite part of this endeavor.

And please if there is anything we can do to help you with ordering, shipping, or just answering any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at

Marc, Jason, and Jeremy
