In the early 1950s, Steve Henson developed what is now known as ranch dressing while working as a plumbing contractor for three years in the remote Alaskan bush. In 1954, he and his wife Gayle opened Hidden Valley Ranch, a dude ranch at the former Sweetwater Ranch on San Marcos Pass in Santa Barbara County, California, where they served it to customers. It became popular, and they began selling it in packages for customers to take home, both as a finished product and as packets of seasoning to be mixed with mayonnaise and buttermilk. As demand grew, they incorporated Hidden Valley Ranch Food Products, Inc., and opened a factory to manufacture it in larger volumes, which they first distributed to supermarkets in the Southwest, and eventually, nationwide.

The Romans were probably the first to experiment with the preparation of mustard as a condiment. A recipe for mustard appears in De re coquinaria, the anonymously compiled Roman cookbook from the late 4th or early 5th century. The Romans likely exported mustard seed to Gaul, and by the 10th century, monks of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris absorbed the mustard-making knowledge of Romans and began their own production. The first appearance of mustard makers on the royal registers in Paris dates back to 1292. Dijon, France, became a recognized center for mustard-making by the 13th century.

One hot Texas day in July 1981, as Ben stopped for lunch at a local West Texas chicken joint during a weekend college break, something magical happened. By inadvertently dipping a jalapeno pepper into ketchup, it was Love at First Bite. Visions of jalapeno and ketchup together in products began as a tiny submissive thought planted in the back of his mind. Ben was on his way to discovering the quintessence of condiments...Jalapeno Ketchup. Later, when working in the "Oil Patch", Ben cooked up his first batch at his home. It was Good! From that day on, he was determined to create the best looking, finest tasting jalapeno and tomato products available.
Around 1994 Ben and his good friend tested several versions and formulas over almost four months before finding the perfect product with the right look, texture, taste, and heat--but not too sweet. They Named it “Spiceitup”
