Out of our many favorite DTC brands, AAPI-founded company Fly By Jing stands out with its flavorful pantry staples like frozen dumplings, spices, hot pot base, and unique collaborations, such as their Tingly Sichuan Salt (made in partnership with Jensen Salt Co.) and their chili crisp smoked Atlantic salmon, in cooperation with Fishwife. Today at 12 p.m. Eastern Time, Fly By Jing expanded their innovative repertoire and released yet another exciting product — Spicy Sovereign Syrup.

The Asian culinary brand teamed up with Bronx-based tastemaker collective Ghetto Gastro to create this syrup, a tasty blend of Fly By Jing’s signature spicy and tingly Sichuan Chili Crisp, the first of its kind on the market, and Ghetto Gastro’s classic Sovereign Syrup. The original Sovereign Syrup, which is made from New York maple syrup, sorghum syrup sourced from small farming collectives in the American South, and apple cider syrup that’s made from New York apples, is a bold abolitionist alternative to cane syrup that aims to honor ancestors and respect the land that produces the top-notch ingredients. 

The brand-new Spicy Sovereign Syrup combines flavors from Chengdu, China, and ancestral ingredients from the Global South to create a delectable sweet-and-spicy sauce that’s fit for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even happy hour. This versatile syrup works as the perfect pairing for a meal of chicken and waffles, a great stir fry sauce, or a clever substitute for simple syrup in your favorite cocktail (spicy margarita, anyone?).

Jing Gao, founder and CEO of Fly By Jing, notes, “The team at Ghetto Gastro brings the same detail-oriented, culture-forward thinking that we strive towards at FBJ, and then some. Every ingredient in our new Spicy Sovereign Syrup is thoughtfully sourced, better-for-you, and tastes out of this world.” Malcolm McNeil of Ghetto Gastro echoed this sentiment, adding, “We’re both about exploring flavors and creating a cultural collision.”

Since this is a limited-edition product, supplies aren’t likely to last long. To snag this unique blend of cultures while supplies last, head to the Fly By Jing or Ghetto Gastro website ASAP.
