About the Event

Hello Fanshawe students, alumni, staff, and the London community!! Do you like spicy and think you have what it takes to beat the heat???

We are looking for up to 8 BRAVE participants who think they can handle the heat for a chance to win cash and prizes at our "Falcon Hot" Wing Challenge taking place during the 2023 leapIN Founders Fair Event.

We have partnered once again with the amazing Jesse Long from The Hot Sauce Co. a Fanshawe College grad and participant in our 2020 leapIN Business Accelerator to make this possible. Jesse will be bringing you a range of locally produced, vegan, and gluten-free hot sauce flavours that are guaranteed to make you sweat.


  • First Place - $1000
  • Second Place - $500
  • Third Place - $250

Contest Format:

  • Contestants will go head-to-head for 5 heated rounds that will gradually increase in intensity.
  • Each round will consist of 2 to 3 chicken wings or cauliflower bites (you choose when you register).
  • The participant to beat the heat and make it the farthest will win a large prize pack and cash (we will also be smaller prize packs and cash for our second and third-place participants).
  • Now of course there can only be one Hot Wing Challenge Champion so, if multiple participants still remain after five rounds, an additional five rounds will be added with extra heat and intensity.

NOTE: A waiver will be provided upon arrival that must be signed before participating in the hot wings contest.

About the Hot Sauce Co.

The Hot Sauce Co. is an all-natural, Canadian-made hot sauce produced in London, Ontario. Spicy products with unquestionable quality made in small batches and bottled in-house, this range is all about showing people that flavour and heat are friends with many benefits.

Hot Sauce Flavours:

Peppers & Pickles

No pickles were harmed in the creation of this explosive hot sauce. Jalapenos and tomatillos are combined with a pickling brine we created to wake up your taste buds. This unique sauce will surprise you with a blast of flavour when you mix it in with your next salad dressing, or spice up the next Caesar on Sunday Funday. Tangy, bold, and spicy all in one bite, your burgers will ditch that old relish and beg for another dab.

Habanero & Mango

This hot sauce is one that all foodies can get behind. A touch of sweetness calms the heat from this full-flavoured hot sauce. The beautiful red colour comes from an heirloom recipe of fresh-made cumin salsa. Combined with juicy mangos and red habaneros. We tie it all together with a blend of spices that will take you somewhere warm and delicious. Enjoyed on everything, this is our most versatile hot sauce yet.

Habanero & Herbs

This hot sauce was created for those who want a subtle boost to their next meal, A combination of freshly ground herbs and spices give this sauce a taste you won't find elsewhere, subtle, fresh and earthy. Our favourite dish to make with Habanero & Herbs is grilled flank steak with chimichurri.

Silver & Ghost

We took Ontario-grown ghost peppers, fermented them, and then added pineapple along with roasted ginger, carrot, and garlic. This limited edition has the perfect blend of flavour and serious heat for any dish.

Reaper & Roasted Red

Our Reaper & Roasted Red Hot Sauce was made for the spicy connoisseurs and the ones who can’t seem to get it hot enough! Created in collaboration with the Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo crew, this was the final boss sauce in their hot wings competition.
