The Internet’s Favorite Sichuan Chili Crisp Company Is Launching Frozen Dumplings
Just add Fly By Jing’s dumplings to your long list of things that taste better with its sauces.
Chili crisp goes great with ... I’ll let you fill in the blank. For me, this anything-goes condiment is what I love about the crunchy, oily, mouthwatering sauce; just when I’m convinced it’s good on eggs, salad and pizza, I learn that it’s also a powerhouse on vanilla ice cream, tomato confit toast and store-bought dumplings. Lots and lots of dumplings. A whole array of standout chili crisp varieties exist, but I’m hooked on Fly By Jing’s Sichuan Chili Crisp. Led by entrepreneur and chef/culinary expert Jing Gao, Fly By Jing is a premium Chinese food company that, for the last few years, has revolutionized how people eat and value Chinese food through quality ingredients and nuanced stories that celebrate the diaspora. Its fierce lineup of sauces and spices shook up many of our pantries for the better and now, dumpling up their sleeves is about to disrupt our freezers (and bellies).
You guessed it – starting November 9, Fly By Jing will be selling ready-to-cook frozen dumplings on its website.
The dumplings come in three succulent flavors: Pork Shrimp & Scallop, Pork Shrimp & Mushroom and Pork Soup Dumplings. In keeping with frozen dumplings worth the salt, they taste great in every preparation: fried, steamed, thrown into soup or dunked into hot pot. You can snag two bags of one flavor for $39.99, or a 6-bag variety pack (with 2 bags per flavor) for $107.99 on flybyjing.com.
And the gift only keeps on giving. Last week, Fly By Jing launched its Tis The Season(ing) Box. In a press release, the company calls it “a one-stop-shop gift for the adventurous eater, voracious home cook, and flavor enthusiast in your life.” This bounty of pantry riches will seriously deliver the best of the best pantry staples for cooking restaurant-grade Sichuan meals in one’s kitchen. Think chili crisp, Mala spice mix, aged doubanjiang, and dried chilis for the most I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-takeout good homemade mapo tofu, dan dan noodles, twice-cooked pork, and Zhong dumplings. Get the bundle while it’s hot for $120 per box.
What’s more? Fly by Jing has started to land in major grocery stores, starting with select Target stores across the country and Whole Foods locations in the Mid-Atlantic region (Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington D.C.). Also expect to see the brand’s products being sold at Sprouts, Costco and more Whole Foods locations in the coming months. So to anyone who goes through their chili crisp like it’s water, there’s no more having to wait until your next shipment arrives.
