Love the taste! Packaging execution ruined the experience for me.

Feedback

Packaging needs some work as there is no safety seal and the product I received had leaked oil through the exterior packaging. The fact that there was no safety seal also made me worry.

This chili crisp is the best! I used my bottle up so quickly, and bought it for all of my family members as Christmas gifts last year. I love using the sauce on rice, eggs, and ramen. And I just noticed they have larger jar options - bless!

I feel like the only person in the world that doesn't rave about Fly by Jing. I was underwhelmed by the Sichuan Chili Crisp; it feels heavy on the flat, oily taste and feels almost more like an ingredient than a standalone sauce. I've tried it with a ton of things, but when I get dumplings I generally prefer a more savory sauce I suppose. The Zhong Sauce was better, in my opinion, and I use that much more frequently, but it still tastes rather oily.

Feedback

The packaging is a nightmare. These jars must have pores, because they sweat bright red oil over every surface they touch. No matter how many times you clean the jar and the lid, somehow, the stuff still escapes. I resorted to dumping them in Weck Jars, where they are finally contained. But they desperately need to figure out better jars, because I got real tired of cleaning up my cabinet every week.

I started with the Sichuan Chili Crisp in 2019, and I finally got around to buying the 3-Pack this year. I'm glad I did! The Chili Crisp and Zhong Sauce can definitely be consumed every day. It's dangerous. The Mala, I have a harder time using but it is definitely tasty nonetheless! Plus, they forgot a small part of my order and their customer service was pleasant and so helpful. I got it shipped right away.

Feedback

The Chili Crisp always leaks, but I don't think that's easily solvable.

Absolutely delicious product that no pantry/fridge should be without. The Sichuan Chili Crisp will add an immense amount of delicious, unforgettable flavor to anything, from eggs to ice-cream. The Mala Spice Mix is so good sprinkled on snacks (esp popcorn). Everything is so authentic with high quality ingredients. Love the branding and the communication - equal parts delightful and informative. I'd love to see such thoughtful product development happening in other cultures.

There's too much to love about this brand. The flavor of their original sauce is excellent and is a perfect "topping" to nearly every dish you can think of. The texture is excellent. The website experience is just fun. The subscription option, loyalty program & merchandise drops are such well-executed, smart expansions on the core business model. The product expansions keep hitting it out of the park (I've never bought anything faster than I bought the hotpot base). I bought a tee with my own money because the branding is just that great (Dayjob did great work). Would recommend to anyone (provided they can handle the heat).

Feedback

The chili crisp concentrates at the bottom so you need to make sure to stir it up (as you would with the table chili oil in any Chinese restaurant). Not an issue but I do go through it quickly and am left with primarily oil about halfway through - would love more of that crisp texture loaded into the jar.

I've tried the chili crisp, the zhong sauce, and the mala spice mix. All delicious! Very fun to have around to make almost anything tastier.

I really LOVE the Sichuan Chili Crisp and it is my favorite one I've tried out of Lao Gan Ma, 886's Sze Daddy, and Momofuku's version. However, $15 is really pricey for this sauce. There is hardly anything I purchase at Whole Foods that is $15 for one item (not including proteins or like HUGE tubs of olive oil) The dumpling sauce was only ok & the mala seasoning spice...never figured out how to use it. Overall I love the Sichuan Chili Crisp but the price is still getting to me. I love what the founder is doing for asian flavors though and how she has introduced the concept of the chili oil to those who were unfamiliar with it before.

Fan of the brand and founder. Packaging and marketing is on point. Works well as a gift, especially for folks who don't have easy access to Chinese sauces.

Feedback

Price is a bit high, especially when there are similar products available for a lot less at local Asian grocery stores.

Very flavorful and specific taste that I've never encountered before. I enjoy the spice level, but I hardly have dishes where this is compatible tbh.
