Oma & Popie's Marinades and More



Wings! Who doesn’t love a piping hot basket of wings. It is the art of the sauce that has made wings an American favorite. However, many restaurants across the country seem to use the same generic sauce. One Idaho couple wanted more than just the same old thing. Jan and Gail Zarr took a leap of faith leaving their careers of managing and marketing performing arts centers and entered into specialy foods. Thus, Oma and Popie’s Marindades and More was born. What started out as a hobby, creating small batch wing sauces in mason jars, grew to a full line of marindaes and spices inspiring the food conisour in us all.


  Locally sourcing as many ingredients as possible, Jan and Gail have used their imagination to create such signature sauces as Drunk Uncle (Brown Sugar Kentucky Bourbon), Wingin' It (Sweet & Spicy), Ja Makin’ Me Crazy (Jamaican Jerk), Bayou Venom (Hot Smoky Cajun) and Hawt Mess (Four-Pepper Sweet Heat). But the creativity does not stop there. To inspire the cook in all of us Oma and Popie’s not only provides excellent marinades that turn your average home meal into food critic worthy feasts, but they provide great recipes that you can try as well. In fact, you can check out their downloadable CookBook Vol 1 at

Oma and Popie’s also have created their own hand-crafted seasoning blends that will take your next BBQ to a new level. They have crafted five signature seasoning blends/dry rubs: Drunk Uncle Joe (Bourbon Infused Coffee with Coco & Chili Powder), Flippin' the Bird (Smoked Chipotle Citrus), Ja Makin’ Me Crazy (Jamaican Jerk), Bayou Venom (Hot Smoky Cajun), & Lip Smackin' Hawt (Fiery Hot Pepper Blend).
