MIAMI, July 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Krispy Rice, the playful and wildly popular delivery-focused Japanese concept from C3 and sbe, is teaming up with luxury condiment brand TRUFF to offer a limited edition TRUFF Box that features Krispy Rice favorites made with TRUFF Spicy Mayonnaise and TRUFF Hot Sauce. The exclusive box will be available for delivery and pickup from select Krispy Rice outposts in Los Angeles and Miami from July 1 – July 31 via CITIZENS GO and other major delivery apps.
TRUFF originally earned social media fame as the first truffle-infused hot sauce brand, challenging the culinary status quo with its ultra-unique fusion of real black truffle and red chili peppers. The distinctive flavor profile and sleek bottle helped TRUFF quickly become the best-selling hot sauce on Amazon and at Whole Foods Market.
"TRUFF and Krispy Rice have each elevated the way we dine at home over the past year," said Sam Nazarian, CEO and founder of C3. "By bringing these two food sensations together in one decadent meal that can be enjoyed anywhere, C3 again raises the bar on delivery to an all new high. We believe everyone should be able to indulge in a meal that looks and tastes incredible, regardless of whether you are dining in or dining out."
The TRUFF Box combines Krispy Rice rolls, handrolls and nigiri with TRUFF Spicy Mayonnaise and TRUFF Signature Hot Sauce. The former captures the subtle kick of red jalapeños, richness of mayonnaise and umami depth of black winter truffle in a gluten-free spread made with organic eggs. The meticulously crafted Signature Hot Sauce blends ripe chili peppers, organic agave nectar, black truffle and savory spices – flavors normally reserved for fine tequilas and elegant dining experiences – with Krispy Rice's fresh and accessible menu offerings.

"The Krispy Rice TRUFF Box brings creativity to the forefront, offering customers a highly sharable, flavor driven, and elevated takeout experience."
The TRUFF Box, along with all Krispy Rice menu items, are packaged for delivery in custom carbon-neutral takeaway boxes made from recycled materials.
