The biggest break Henry got other than his parents investing $150,000 of their retirement fund into his business was when he appeared on Shark Tank
in March 2014 seeking $150K for $25% ownership of his company.
He partnered with Robert Herjavec and Mark Cuban who offered Henry $300,000 for 75% of equity while letting Henry maintain ownership, The high equity buy in they felt was required because Henry was creating a category and Henry would need help with and distribution and consumer education, for which both of these Shark’s had the clout to achieve. Cuban suggested that with it, Henry could repay his parents for their business loan.The Sharks wanted to run with it.

Now, I know everyone has a different flavor palette, a few taste Grumpy Grandpa™ and go running for the hills whereas others take a spoonful of Phoebe’s and look at us expecting something more.
Well, my dear old dad took this as a personal challenge, he got this weird look in his eye, rolled up his sleeves and retreated to his sinister lair. He definitely meant business so he didn’t even bother going for those wimpy jalapenos, no he wanted some serious heat. Habaneros. After practically nuking the mouths of all the family members with test trials, he settled on his formula.
And now Henry's Humdingers is blazing a whole new trail, one mouth at a time with our newest flavor! Diabolical Dad™ This stuff will knock your socks off tenfold.
So if you have been craving more spice get ready to be satisfied. Try it on a steak, fish tacos. My mom likes it on breakfast burritos, but she's another story.
Now in general I just like raw pure honey nice and sweet, but my grandpa, who plays jazz in Paris, likes his food and his music HOT. So my mom said maybe we should try something different and the next thing you know she was in the kitchen experimenting with all kinds of spices. And Voila! Now we have Henrys Humdingers™. The Grumpy Grandpa™.
Naughty Nana™ is a spicy ginger mixture with a slow burn that breaks all the laws of taste and is making new ones. It reminds people of Asian cuisine. In fact, my dad eats it on peanut butter muffins and says it’s out of this world.
You're going to want to try one of my most unique creations. Introducing Phoebe's Fireball™, an unforgettable combination of Chipotle & Cinnamon so spicy & sweet it will blow you away. Just exactly like my adorable cousin, Phoebe, aka “The Blue Eyed Dragon” because, to tell you the truth, sometimes she is a little bit bad.
