Over 30 years ago, Hammett Chili seasoning was introduced into the Oklahoma market. This small regional chili seasoning made an impact on the marketplace, selling against larger brands of chili seasonings with the promise of a great-tasting “No Heartburn Chili”.
When starting his own specialty foods brokerage company in 1989, Don Holman remembered this popular brand and sought it’s owner for the rights to not only promote, sell and distribute it, but to own it and rebrand it for a wider market with goals of national distribution. After a successful rebranding to Old Hammett, the goals of national distribution were realized with distribution agreements with large multi-state national grocery chain retailers.
The original recipe was to be made with only water and no tomato products. Over the years many championship recipes have been produced using Old Hammett as the base seasoning.
This remarkable seasoning with its simple recipe of
1 oz. seasoning + 1 lbs. ground beef + 1 cup water = Incredible batch of chili!
