The Beast Hot Sauce Review

The Beast Hot Sauce – Billed as being “Hottest this side of Hell,” the Beast Hot Sauce is a deep red, hot sauce that doesn’t screw around. It’s the sort of sauce that you aren’t sure if you should take seriously until you make the mistake of trying more than a drop of it.

The front of the label features a fiery demon looking thing that seems like it was ripped straight from the t-shirt of an 80s hair-metal band.

The warning on the side of the label reads: XXX-Screamly Hot! Which sounds more like the tag line for a horror-themed adult movie than an actual warning. Continue Reading

Melinda’s Mango Hot Sauce Review

Melinda’s Mango Hot Sauce – Melinda’s sauces are characterized by fresh ingredients, artistic blending, and flavors that make these sauces some of the best around. While the sauces all contain some element of hot pepper, Melinda’s idea of hot differs from that of serious chili heads. Even her hottest hot sauces aren’t extremely hot. These sauces use the pepper differently than most hot sauces. The pepper is a flavor element rather than a full-out heat element.

In Melinda’s Mango Hot Sauce, we’re treated to a partnership of habanero peppers and fresh mangos, along with carrots, cane juice, lemon juice, and a small variety of ingredients that make this sauce a tantalizing treat. Continue Reading

Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

The Ghost Pepper Sauce – Are you afraid of the ghost? That’s the question asked on the black label of this Ghost Pepper Sauce. The black label features a ghoul that looks like Death himself paying a visit. The makers of the sauce warn you to be afraid of this ghost. I don’t know about all that, but I do know there’s heat hidden inside the bottle – serious heat. With the naga jolokia pepper as its base, that’s no surprise. In addition to that magical pepper, the ingredients include carrots, papaya, lime juice, passion fruit, salt, vinegar, onion, and garlic. Those flavors are layered and balanced beautifully, making a sauce that packs the heat wallop chili lovers crave and the flavor a gourmet palate demands.

A lot of the sauces made with the naga jolokia are not only hot, but they tend to be great additives to all sorts of food. Continue Reading

Bhut Jolokia Pepper Becomes a Weapon

Scientists working for the Indian military have created a non-toxic weapon to use in the fight against terror, using a special local ingredient — the world’s hottest chili the bhut jolokia.

This pepper is hot. Very, very hot. In fact, it’s listed in the Guiness Book of Records as the world’s hottest chili, and on the Scoville scale (used to measure spiciness) the bhut jolokia rings in at a mouth-melting 1,000,000 Scoville units (comparatively, the spiciest variety of jalapeno registers at 8,000 Scoville units).

However, these won’t be served up in a … Continue Reading

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce begins with a subtle aroma that’s very pleasing to inhale. As you would expect, the smell is immediately reminiscent of something Oriental. I poured a little on a spoon and sampled it. The sauce tastes exactly like it smells. It has a rich Oriental overtone brought on primarily by the tamari, ginger, and sesame oil. There’s also some honey and sea salt, kicked up by a dose of chili extract that adds a nice little heat factor to the situation.

There’s not a lot of uses for Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce. The flavor is so distinctly Oriental that anything you use it on will taste that way. I found it excellent on fried rice in play of soy sauce. Continue Reading

Ribs are one of my favorite foods. I slathered some of Fork ’N Halo Heavenly Hickory BBQ Sauce over a sample of beef and pork ribs just about five minutes before they were finished cooking. The sauce cooked to a beautiful consistency and the meat absorbed the smoky-sweet goodness, delivering a barbecue rib experience that reminded me of a little BBQ shack I ran across in Louisiana.

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce Review

I was a little nervous to try Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce. I’ve had Da Bomb Ground Zero and it brought me to my knees. Since this one is made with the extremely hot Naga Jolokia, I expected to be punished with the intensity of the heat. In fact, I expected to find a sauce that was nearly unusable without mixing it sparingly in enough food to feed a hundred people.
