Truly Hot Stocks: Spice Up Your Portfolio With Some Condiment Stocks

Since Huy Fong is not looking for a buyer, and would never want to deal with the hassle of an IPO – it's unlikely the special sauce will be a publicly traded investing opportunity any time soon.

But it wasn't hard for us to develop a condiment index. We managed to find six truly hot stocks – companies that bring in a sizable portion of their revenue through sauces, dips, and spices. They trade on public exchanges, and all return a healthy dividend. Just in case you're hungry for some spicy shares.
