Aside from the holiday season, the month of March is another time of year folks start freeing up space inside their freezers. We're talking about National Tamale Day and Tucson Tamale Company is celebrating big time on Thursday, March 23.
"You know we have a passion for tamales," Tucson Tamale shared. "The only thing better than tamales are free tamales."
So, on National Tamale Day (March 23), Tucson Tamale is celebrating with a Buy-One-Get-One Frozen Tamale Sale. If you buy three Twin Pack Tamales, you'll get three Twin Packs for free.
Like all deals and special offers, there are some rules. There's a limit of three free Twin Packs per customer. Plus, you will be able to substitute single tamales (the total number of free tamales is six whether in Twin Packs or singles).
If you haven't stopped by the Oracle location lately, you're in for a treat, which will be open 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. on National Tamale Day. Back in 2020, Tucson Tamale opened a retail marketplace at both of its locations, featuring a line-up of more than 100 products. However, the Oracle location has an expansive "Wall of Heat" for those looking to add some literal spice to their lives.
The new market's items range from local, regional, and international purveyors that were intentionally curated by Tucson Tamale co-founders Todd and Sherry Martin, but the "Wall of Heat" is kept in tip-top shape by Erik Buehler.
“Todd loves hot sauces, and one of the pivot opportunities that the pandemic introduced was a plan to grow that offering as part of a new marketplace concept,” said Buehler.
Right now, you'll find more than 300 hot sauces on the wall, ranging from tame to incendiary, and this reportedly makes Buehler's retail hot sauce collection among the largest in Arizona and his palate arguably one of the toughest and most tested in the industry.
Tucson Tamale Company is located at 7286 N. Oracle Rd. and 7159 E. Tanque Verde Rd. For more information, visit tucsontamale.com.
