He’s been heating up the basketball court since joining the Toronto Raptors in 2016, and now Pascal Siakam is bringing the heat to the grocery aisle.

Through a partnership with Nando’s South African restaurant chain, the power forward is launching a limited edition bottle of Spicy P(ERi-PERi). The name plays off Siakam’s ‘Spicy P’ nickname. The sauce, made with a special type of chili called the African Birds Eye chili, comes in medium and hot.

A portion of every bottle sold will go towards Right To Play – a non-profit organization that protects, educates and empowers children to rise above the impacts of poverty, war and disease, by harnessing the power of play.

Plus, this is even better than a hot sauce – it’s PERi-PERi.”

Spicy P(ERi-PERi) is available at Nando restaurants and Sobeys. It will be available at additional grocery stores where Nando’s PERi-PERi is sold starting March 4.
