Habanero Hot Sauce – Beware!

The Habanero hot sauce is an icon amongst all the various types of hot sauces that are available in the market. Chili peppers are fruits of plants hailing from the Capsicum genre and Habanero happens to be the most spicy and hot pepper in this lineage.

The habanero pepper is a small lantern, round or oblong shaped pepper with small creases and the colors range from green to bright orange when ripe. The habanero’s size can vary from 1″ – 2.5″ in length and 1″ – 2″ in diameter and it is the hottest chile on the Scoville scale, with an intense flaming, flowery flavor. Continue Reading

Dave’s Total Insanity Hot Sauce Review

When you open a bottle of Dave’s Total Insanity Hot Sauce, the heat immediately hits your nose and lights a fire, and then you know that this sauce is not for the weak—it’s for chile heads. The heat is not the only thing that your nose will notice. Dave’s Total Insanity Sauce is made of red chiles, vinegar and a hint of garlic.

Dave’s Total Insanity Hot Sauce tastes of red chiles, lime juice, garlic, onions, tomato sauce and vinegar. But the real star is the heat, an intense, sweating heat that stays around for a long time. The heat is provided by red chiles and hot pepper extract. Continue Reading

Sauce Bitch Hot Sauce Review

Sauce Bitch is another sweet and spicy sauce that falls into the category of what I like to call exotics. Whenever there’s a combination of fruity ingredients with one of the top-notch heat peppers, I get goose bumps. I can almost always count on it being good, and that’s the case with this one.

Sauce Bitch is an exquisite combination of habaneros, pineapples, oranges, mangos, and raisins that delivers a satisfyingly sweet taste with an undercurrent of heat. The first shot of this sauce won’t burn your mouth. It’s one of those build-up numbers that gets increasingly warmer as you eat more. It never reaches the kind of heat level that will have you stuffing bread in your mouth or downing half a gallon of milk, though. Continue Reading

Fear Hot Sauce Review

The disturbing image of a ghostly alien face on the black label of Fear Hot Sauce could be a freeze-frame from a horror flick. Blood drips slowly from the top of the forehead down to the cleft of the chin. But the terror doesn’t end there. Even the typeface on the bottle would look at home on the cover of a horror rental.

In case you’ve never experienced fear, the label includes a tidy definition of the feeling describing it as “a response to a specific stimulus such as pain, or the threat of pain.” Then for good measure they taunt you: “don’t be scared!!!”  In case you think these guys are all shock and no awe, the first ingredient of Fear Hot Sauce is the one and only Naga Jolokia pepper.

Mad Dog 357 Mustard Sauce Review

I get the impression that Mad Dog 357 Mustard Sauce uses its goofy yellow dog much in the same way a wolf might don sheep’s wool. I look at his stupid grin and the chef’s hat with flames and I can’t take him seriously.

The only time I ever see flames on clothing is when they’re being worn by some poser douche bag who spends too much money at Hot Topic, so I wasn’t expecting to be impressed by Jokey yellow dog and his silly mustard sauce. Mistake number one.

The yellow dog who appears to have an access of neck hair, returns on the label of Mad Dog 357 Mustard Sauce, which is a thick, brownish-yellow concoction. Continue Reading

Smack My Ass and Call Me Sally Hot Sauce Review

Of all the humorous hot sauce titles I’ve come across in my day, Smack My Ass and Call Me Sally might be my personal favorite. In summery the story behind the name goes as follows: a bully named Chet, who committed unspeakable acts, was surreptitiously slipped a dose of hot sauce that burned so bad he exclaimed, you guessed it: “ well smack my ass and call me Sally.” Now thanks to the wonders of mass production, you too can feel Chet’s pain and maybe if your lucky scream hilarious things.

Tijuana Flats Hot Foods Inc. puts out an entire line of sauces under that name and they range from exceedingly dangerous to relatively mild. Smack My Ass and Call Me Sally Hot Sauce is the original, Continue Reading

Ass Reaper Hot Sauce Review

As my mother would say, I’ma gonna give it to ya straight: Ass Reaper Hot Sauce is one of the hottest sauces I’ve ever experienced.  No, not THE hottest sauce, but as of right now, it’s in my top three.  Your first clue as to what’s to come is that the Ass Reaper Hot Sauce bottle comes dressed as the Grimm Reaper, with a white skull mask and a hooded robe tied to the neck of the bottle.  Just in time for Halloween?  Not a chance.  Wicked ominous?  Definitely.

The label is a simple design, a black background with white and red text.  The body of a skeleton takes up the majority of space, with “Ass Reaper” scrawled in red across the bony pelvis.  Continue Reading

Buhba’s Butt Blaster X-Hot Sauce Review

Oh to be responsible for the creation of witty hot sauce brand titles!  The label for Buhba’s Butt Blaster X-Hot Sauce immediately appealed to my immature sense of humor while also causing me to roll my eyes.  The colorful cartoon label shows a boy sitting in an outhouse, steam coming out of his ears and eyes bugging out of his head, presumably due to the hotness of the liquid and his body’s reaction to the spicy “temperature.”

A mustard sauce with a thick consistency (I immediately thought of a curry sauce’s texture), a few drops of Buhba’s Butt Blaster X-Hot Sauce immediately produces a fiery taste that shoots through the sinuses.  I first tested the sauce using some left over crust from a by-gone cheese pizza Continue Reading

Black Swan’s Wing Commander Review

Black Swan’s Wing Commander wing sauce falls into the category of sauces you will either love or hate. Black Swan’s Wing Commander is billed as a spicy wing sauce, which it most definitely is.

There’s no heat here, but the sauce imparts a distinct Asian flavor personality that is sure to please anyone who has a taste for Asian cosine. The inclusion of honey, sesame seed, soy sauce, and fresh ginger attribute to the Asian characteristics, with mustard flour, salt, two types of vinegar (distilled white and malt), red peppers, and additional spices rounding out the ingredient roster.

Charlie’s Hard Times Hot Sauce Review

The shtick behind Charlie’s Hard Times Hot Sauce is that in these trying economic times, one shouldn’t have to settle or compromise in order to afford and enjoy their hot sauce.  I immediately liked where this was going.  “Don’t wait for the government to give you a bailout,” proclaimed the label.  “Bailout your bored taste buds with this sauce!”  The label features a broke broker drawn in an abstract style and a short narrative detailing that the products were designed to keep everyone in the sauce “until we get through this mess.”

Of course, some people might remember that “Hard Times” is a novel written by Charles Dickens, making this English major laugh at the down trodden figure front and center on the bottle’s label.  Continue Reading

Wing Sauce Leads to Arrest

A pizza delivery man was attacked for his pizza and wings early Saturday morning  February 6th, but the alleged thieves didn’t make as clean a getaway as they had expected — the morons left a trail of pizza and chicken wing sauce right to their front door.

Somewhere around 4 a.m. on February 6th, two men enticed the pizza delivery guy to the Sycamore Shadows Apartment complex in Mesa, Arizona. The two men, 18-year-old Michael Dornan, and 23-year-old Michael Le-Andre, cornered the delivery guy near an empty apartment and insisted that he give them the pizzas and wings he was delivering.

As the delivery guy reached into his bag to pull out the pizza and wings, Dornan admittedly hit him over the head with a coffee pot, snatched the food, and ran. Continue Reading

Matteo’s Red Headed Step Sauce Review

Matteo’s Red Headed Step Sauce is truly a one-of-a-kind tasting hot sauce. Greenish brown in color, infused with large chunks of ingredients, and easily pourable, Red Headed Step Sauce is like salsa in a bottle.

The ingredients include tomato juice, roasted jalpeno peppers, red wine vinegar, onions, carrots, lime juice, red chili peppers, garlic, and olive oil. Don’t let the inclusion of two types of peppers fool you, though. Red Headed Step Sauce is extremely mild with a fresh taste. While you won’t be using it to heat anything up, it will make an enjoyable addition to chip dip or any Mexican cosine. Continue Reading

Hooters 3 Mile Island Wing Sauce Review

Hooters 3 Mile Island Wing Sauce is a hot combination of pepper ingredients that include aged red cayenne peppers, aged red Tabasco peppers, jalapeno peppers, and aged habanero peppers. While this sauce isn’t going to burn any holes in your tongue, it’s quite a bit hotter than the original Hooters Wing Sauce.

Hooters 3 Mile Island is a classic wing sauce with an appealing flavor and enough heat to warm your lips and keep them that way. There’s a bit of a heavy vinegar overtone to the sauce, but it disappears in the cooking process, leaving behind a peppery heat. Continue Reading

Hot Sauce Can Cheer You Up?

Chilli peppers and hot sauces are renowned for its powerful antioxidant and pain-relieving properties. In addition, they work well in the deterrence of colds, flu and other germ-related ailments. Study’s also show that they may work against cancer, among other diseases. All this because of capsaicin, the active ingredient that puts the “hot” in hot pepper.

But capsaicin also makes peppers a powerful mood improving substance, and for the identical reason it is such an effective painkiller: because it triggers the release of endorphins.

In view of its many benefits, it would be a good idea to add hot sauce or peppers to your diet. Continue Reading
