New Old Bay Hot Sauce Sold Out Before Super Bowl; Now Resells $50 on eBay

Published

on

Super Bowl is getting nearer, and everyone is kicking in for those wings. Old Bay hot sauce launched its latest seasoning for wings, and this time, they announced it earlier.

The big company, McCormick, announced their version of hot sauce with some of their spices. 

On Wednesday, they described it as a traditional flavor of Old Bay, but with that kick, that would surely spice up the wings. This liquid version is said to “warm-up comfort foods, like chilis, soups, and stews.” 

It also boasts that it’s perfect for chicken wings, nachos, and dips. This will be the ideal time for the Super Bowl that will be held on Sunday, where San Francisco 49ers will take on Kansas City Chiefs. 

According to its website, this version also helps with “A dash also adds just the right spice to Bloody Mary’s and other cocktails.” This hot sauce is on retail for $3.49

From the company’s representative, Jill Pratt, she said: “Old Bay Seasoning and hot sauce go together like… well, Old Bay and everything.” 

For fans out there, you may have remembered that this seasoning was trending on Twitter in 2019 after it was shown that some of the people sprinkle it on grits as well. 

She added, “Our fans are always super excited to share with us all the ways they’re using the seasoning and celebrating their love of OLD BAY — from costumes and themed weddings to home décor and even tattoos. We can’t wait to hear what they think of our new hot sauce.”

After hours from its announcement on Twitter, “#OLDBAYHOTSAUCE IS COMING Less than one day until you can get your hands on a bottle (or 10) of this LIMITED EDITION product, available on their website. Tag someone who NEEDS this” the spicy seasoning of Old Bay was sold out. 

Kevin Fredericks, the comedian, retweeted Old Bay’s post and shared it “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

The company announced tweeting, “Your love for all things Old Bay may have broken the internet. Thanks for always being ready to try something new. Sold out, but restocking.”

eBay sellers took advantage of this and sold Old Bay Hot Sauce in 10 ounces at $49.99 each.

This could also trigger some hot sauce rush to chicken sandwiches rivals, Chic-fil-A and Popeyes. Maryland people are now planning trips to the Chesapeake Bay to pick their bottle or two.

This Maryland based company is selling this limited-edition hot sauce, which comes in two flavors. There is also Old Bay scented candle if you are a fan of them.

Starting next month, this will be available in different supermarkets like Giant, Food Lion, Martin’s, Safeway, Wegmans, and a lot more so you may want to plan a trip to the grocery soon. It’s never too late to get into the rush of spicy kicks, whether it be Super Bowl season or not.

China: Luckin Coffee Shares Fall After $310M Potential Fraud

Published

Luckin Coffee has disclosed on Thursday that they made an internal investigation, and its chief operating officer fabricated their sales in 2019 by 2.2 billion yuan ($310 million).

The shares plummeted by 80% after they released the filing.

The Chief Operating Officer, Jian Liu, and other employees who were reporting to him were engaging themselves in misconduct and are now suspended. 

The company will be taking legal action for people who took part in it and are responsible for those conducts. Jian could not be found anymore for an interview.

Luckin is a two and a half-year-old company and has goals to overtake Starbucks in China, the top coffee chain currently in the country. 

The investors are not relying on their previous financial statements and earnings, which were released for nine months. They announced earlier that heir net sales for the first nine months of 2019 were 2.9 billion yuan ($413 million). 

In their statement, “As a result, investors should no longer rely upon the company’s previous financial statements and earnings releases for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, and the two quarters starting April 1, 2019, and ended September 30, 2019, including the prior guidance on net revenues from products for the fourth quarter of 2019, and other communications relating to these consolidated financial statements.

The company said that its investigation is still at its initial stage, and its independent auditor does not verify estimates of the fabrication of sales. Kirkland & Ellis will do their counseling and FTI Consulting for forensic accounting expertise.

Back in January, the Muddy Waters Research said that they found something fraudulent with their business.

On its official Twitter page, it said, MW is short $LK. We received an unattributed 89-page report alleging $LK is a fraud: “number of items per store per day was inflated by at least 69% in 2019 3Q and 88% in 2019 4Q, supported by 11,260 hours of store traffic video” We view the work as credible. 

However, Luckin replied and said that the seller’s report was false and misleading. The founder of Muddy Waters said Luckin shows precisely why we need short sellers in the market. We believed this report was credible when we read it, and that’s why we took a position. 

This is again a wake-up call for U.S. policymakers, regulators, and investors about the extreme fraud risk China-based companies pose to our markets.”

In May, Luckin started its trade on the Nasdaq, and since then, making it to the public market, it gave the company a market value of $1.3 billion. Furthermore, the company has tried a customer-based format and offering excellent discounts to the market. 

For January of this year, it already has more than 4,500 branches in China, a few hundred more than Starbucks in the country. Starbucks, on the other hand, responded to its competitiveness and opened more cafes in China for quick picks and delivery and less on seating capacities in their cafes.
