You’ve probably heard of Fly by Jing’s chili crisp, the “hot, spicy, numbing, tingly, and savory” condiment that shot the brand to popularity for tasting equally good on scallion pancakes, cucumbers, and vanilla ice cream. But have you had its zhong sauce or mala spice mix? If not (or if you’re looking to restock), now’s the perfect time: All three jars are on sale for 20 percent off right now.
Both the zhong sauce and mala spice mix are just as versatile as their predecessor, with the former being sweet, tangy, and deeply “umami-rich,” and inspired by the dumplings you can find everywhere in the founder’s birthplace of Chengdu, China. (That’s where all three condiments are made, too.) The latter is a dry spice blend that delivers the signature numbing flavor of Sichuan food — and, for the record, tastes delicious as a margarita rim. These are all bound to become pantry staples, and with so many uses, they’ll be gone before you know it. So for $36 instead of the usual $45, maybe grab two packs — you won’t be sorry.
