Hi there! 

We're Jan (Popie) & Gail (Oma) Zarr, owners and makers of Oma & Popie's Seasoning Sauces and Spice Blends!

Don’t let our saucy red bottles fool you, we’re so much more than just a BBQ sauce or rub. From creating a peach pie to candied pecans, flatbreads to a seasoning topping on popcorn and bacon we have many recipes to inspire your inner gourmet.


Whether you're cooking with our sauce or seasoning with our low-sodium spice blends, these full-bodied simple ingredients will help you create crave worthy dishes for family and friends! 

Our Story 

It all started on one of our first dates, when Popie confessed his love of dive bars and chicken wings to Oma, and it turned into a cross country search to find the best wings and sauces in the USA.

During our travels we chomped on hundreds of wings across the states, but were disappointed to find that though the sauce names were different, they all tasted the same.

We moved back to Idahome and decided to hit the kitchen and come up with a sauce like no other!
Our grandkids inspired the name Oma & Popie's, and we've enjoyed coming up with creative recipes for our seasoning sauces and spice blends with them here in Idaho.

Our products show our zest for life and shared adventures; try them all, you won't be disappointed.

Sauces & Spices

Imagine if your favorite bbq sauce, hot sauce and seasoning blend met – you would have Oma & Popie’s.


All our sauces start with a blend of White and Apple Cider vinegar; de Arbol Chile powder and Guajillo chile peppers (pronounced “wha hee oh”) with a flavor profile that is slightly fruity with sweet heat, hints of pine, tart berries, and light smoky undertones. No tomatoes are use in the processing of our sauce. 

We then add light brown sugar, celery seed, onion, garlic, 99% pure sea salt and robust spices for a perfect blend of sweet, savory and spicy.


Our spices are sourced from certified producers with raw materials that meet extremely rigorous standards for sourcing & manufacturing to provide the freshest, purest premium product available. While some other seasoning brands contain up to 90% salt, our blends average only 30%—the rest of the flavors come from dried herbs and spices PACKED with tons of flavor with slight heat. Whether you are saucy or spicy, we have flavor profile for you!


The possibilities are endless … for fish, shrimp, steak, pork, chicken, ribs, grilled veggies, pizza sauce or the perfect vinaigrette topping on a fresh green and pasta salad!
