Congrats to our winner.... Yew Jin!! Send us a message to organise your prize.๐Ÿฅ‡

I am hot to trot to the show

I love the show. Itโ€™s not all showbags and rides either. The best bits are the traditional bits from yesteryearโ€™s show, before it became all bells and whistles and cheap plastic moustaches. Last year we went and spent the day doing all the things youโ€™d never want to do as a kid, the wood chopping, all the food stalls, the dog trials, patting the giant cows. Never knew what I was missing as a kid. Tag Brad Edwards

Brianna Skyeoff to the show we go ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

With only 2 tickets and the ex coming over to take my daughter I would miss quality time with the ex. Alternatively could I have second prize of I ticket cause 100K screaming kids sounds much better than her.

Scrumptious and delectable with seafood and tossed salad. A must on a hot dog while watching events at the Melbourne Show

Haven't been to the show since forever and I'd love to take our newest Victorian resident, my partner who has just moved from nsw ... Best of luck to all ๐Ÿ™‚

Loved Shared and Commented on ! #Saucesome Graham Hot Diggity Dog I've actually run out of Chipotle BBQ to ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘Œ

I was bought up with a chilli loving dad ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ผ So i love it hot & my friends think I'm mad๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™€๏ธ I search for new sauces everywhere that i roam ๐ŸŒ Building my collection of hot sauces at home ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ”ฅ I have spare bottles stored in my car ๐Ÿš For hot sauce emergencies, be it near or far ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Please pick me for this amazing prize ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ I'll be forever grateful & ain't telling no lies ๐Ÿ˜ David H Monaghan Rose O'brien Karen Gruenwald

Haydz Sam Shane King Guy Langborne Daniel Lloyd Together we conquer these uncertain streets of rage with only mangoes in hand. The reaper screams bloody roja but we laugh at him and say bhut you must be jalokiainโ€™! Weโ€™re not quite sure how Mr Sanchez figures in the story but when things get as spicy is this we take leave all senses and memories.

Stuart Nunyah you truly are the craziest hot sauce fan I have ever met. I love hot sauce, but when my eyes are watering you can't feel a thing. This pack would keep us both happy ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

I want to nominate my sister Jennifer Hopkins-mcalister, one day she gave me "hot sauce" so hot, I couldn't stop the burn. 20 minutes later I'm throwing up ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And I love hot food, or so I thought.

I'm tagging John Coops Sharrock as the ULTIMATE HOT SAUCE FAN as he laughs at the thought of hot sauce and isn't afraid to show/prove it. If you think it's HOT he thinks it's CUTE! On the other hand, I'm the ULTIMATE HOT SAUCE FAN wuss (yes I admit it)!

My 12 year old son is a hot sauce fan Whenever we go somewhere to eat and they ask him what sauce he always asks for the hottest , then they always say without fail โ€œthatโ€™s a very hot sauce โ€œ He actually gets annoyed by that response coz he knows and he loves it Deb Hill Laura Webber

Wendy DunkToni DentonPatricia Burns more sauce the better , and hotter even better ๐Ÿ”ฅ As i know the kids wont eat my food or leftovers ๐Ÿ˜‚

Stephanie Symons, raised on hot stuff, chilli was a essiential ingredient in my upbringing so no meal is complete without hot sauce

Liked shared n tagged Crystal Healey Unky bill, more jalapenos the better, another nutter with hot stuff

Liked shared n tagged Matthew David Blanch The hot sauce king pin 12/12. Hotness ratio for him only. The guys nuts

Mitchellvl Holden is the biggest hot sauce freak I've ever met, grows his own chillies to make his own sauce and all ๐Ÿ˜Š

Love spice love hot no matter day or night l like a bit of fire in my life.๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ

My son is the hot sauce lover in our house.... He has it on everything. April Turner for Paris lol

Brooke MichelleBrooke your dad would love this! Nothing blows his socks off!

Sean Haughton I love hot sauce because then it becomes a reminder for tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I am the ultimate hot sauce fan because I have nearly a whole shelf in our giant pantry dedicated to hot sauce... most of which my partner eats (and sometimes regrets haha) Tagging him Luke Dat Beard and other hot sauce fans Jamie-lee Kennison Ali Bee Mark Davis Paul Hedger Tim Doorwork Barry Wallwork

Carlie Tish Davies if I had one of these t-shirts I'd be hotter than any of these sauces
