Twitter's a weird thing. One minute it's all talk of Roy Moore on horseback and the next it's revealing Lin-Manuel Miranda's favorite Charleston-produced hot sauce.
That's right, on Tuesday, Miranda, the composer, lyricist, playwright, and actor best known for his Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton
, was asked by a fan on Twitter, "What's your preferred hot sauce?"
Come to find out, Miranda's beloved Peach Slow Burn Hot Sauce
is from local Jimmy Hagood's Food for the Southern Soul. The product has been a staple of Colbert's gift bags, both at the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Colbert Report
for years through a partnership with the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, but this is the first time Hagood has had a celebrity comment on the sauce.
"It's my birthday today and it's the first time I've ever been blown up on Twitter," says Hagood of the tweet that reached Miranda's 2 million followers.
As if that weren't enough of a birthday gift, the Broadway star did him one better. Shortly after his first comment, Miranda tweeted a photo of his bottle with the caption, "This is the brand and I AM RUNNING OUT."
Thankfully, Hagood has him covered.
"We just got a pallet of it in, so it's all very serendipitous," says Hagood. "Merry Christmas, huh?"
