Spice Up Your Life With These Insanely Good Sauces!

In 2010 a West Cork food manufacturing company decided to take their talents to the retail sector and created a range of fresh, chilled sauces called Insanely Good™.  

After seeing countless sauces on our supermarket shelves filled with additives and fillers with fancy scientific names and few authentic ingredients, Tom and Denis of Spice O’ Life Ltd. saw a gap in the market for high quality, fresh chilled sauces.

With their expertise they could bring something unique to Irish consumers, giving them fresh, tasty and real products, full of quality ingredients straight from the source.  Thus, Insanely Good™ was born! 


Manufactured in Dunmanway, Co. Cork, Insanely Good is the brain child of Tom Kearney and Denis O’Driscoll, whose combined experience in the food industry spans decades.  Kearney, a food scientist who studied at UCC, travelled abroad to gain work experience in the food sector and trained in new product development with an American food company before moving back home to start his own food company, Spice O’ Life Ltd., in 2000.  

O’Driscoll worked in the seafood industry for years and decided to partner up with Kearney to create something a bit different from the mainstream food products they were seeing in the market.  

In the last eleven years they’ve put their heads together to create some new, great-tasting, natural and healthy products, most of which you’d find as secret ingredients in many of your favourite everyday foods. Many of these products have been nominated for Blas na hEireann food awards and some have won multiple awards for Spice O’ Life’s food manufacturing customers.


Yet, Tom and Den still had a slew of ideas they’d been garnering over the years and figured the best way to put them out there was to create their own retail product line based on the unique foods they’d sampled and loved while off travelling the globe.  

The ethos behind their new range of sauces was to create something that didn’t take a lot of time in the kitchen, but would deliver on taste and at the same time make a healthy meal for one, as much as it would for the average-sized family.  At Insanely Goodit’s all about the ingredients and Tom and Den have sourced the best!

Today the Insanely Good range of fresh chilled sauces includes a diversity of flavours to please everyone’s palate. All of these products are free from MSG, artificial colours and flavours. Several are gluten-free and low in calories.  You can get your hands on three types of curry sauce ―Bombay, Tikka and Fruity curry, as well as three pasta sauces― Traditional, Bolognese and Carbonara, and a pizza sauce. Their newest line to hit the supermarkets is the Chill N’ Dip range, which includes a sweet chilli-mayo that kids adore dipping into with chicken goujons, a piquant garlic mayo, spicy taco mayonnaise and a salsa dip.


All of the Insanely Goodfresh chilled sauces are found in the chilled foods section at Dunnes, SuperValu and Centra supermarkets.
