“Between my upbringing in Southeast Texas and being a student at Louisiana State University (LSU), I started making salsa by mixing Mexican style with a little Cajun spice.  As I experimented with different ingredients and flavors, the salsa was always a huge hit with everyone, and I knew I had something,” said DATG Founder Matt Bennett. “After traveling around the world and experiencing different cultures, I settled in New York City’s East Village and quickly discovered that the salsa selection on store shelves was limited and lacking in quality.  So, I decided to start making my own salsa again, building a new type of brand in a space that is stale and DREAMS AREN’T THIS GOOD was born.  Our flavors push boundaries with each one being its own experience.  Hopefully, people find them as inspiring as we do when creating them.”
