Wicked Cactus Sauce Head Hunter’s Paradise Hot Sauce Review

Spot a bottle of this Wicked Cactus sauce up on the shelf, pull it down, and boom! You’re sucked in by the time you finish reading the first line on the label.  While the aesthetically pleasing label and bold, assertive typeface don’t hurt its cause, it’s the deep, pigmented color of the sauce on the other side of the glass that will initially catch your attention.

Once you find yourself cracking beyond the safety seal and pouring a generous helping of the sauce onto your eggs (mine were scrambled with mushrooms and onion), you’ll next notice its salsa-like consistency and appreciate the flecks of spices dotting the liquid.  And upon lifting a bit of smothered eggs to your mouth, you’ll discover that the sauce has an unusually wonderful, thick texture and a bold, smoky taste.

Envy Hot Sauce Review

I have to admit, my mindset going into trying Envy Hot Sauce for the first time was not a fair one – I enjoy green sauces immensely, but had yet to find one with a distinctive enough flavor to stop me from automatically grabbing my personal standby, a certain green jalapeño sauce that you may have been privy to yourself at some point or another.  So I wasn’t expecting to sell the farm upon cracking open this new venture into green territory.  Despite a near heart-attack upon staring into the (unexpected) pair of wide green eyes printed on the side of the bottle’s label, my overall first impression of  it was favorable: the sauce had a thinner consistency than the green sauces I had dabbled in before, but it boasted a lime/citrus smell and flecks of a spice (cilantro?) swirled inside of the glass bottle.  Continue Reading

Da Bomb Beyond Insanity Review

“Da Bomb,” a version of “The Bomb,” may refer to a nuclear weapon, ala the atomic bomb, or to an English language idiom to characterize something as awesome (for example, “did you see the concert last night?  It was ‘da bomb!’” Unfortunately for everyone involved, this hot sauce’s flavors embodied more of the former definition and contained no trace of the latter.

From the moment that I held the small glass bottle that houses Da Bomb Beyond Insanity in my hot little hand, I was wary.  Reminiscent of the bottle that Alice discovers labeled “Drink Me” in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland,” I had an inkling that this hot sauce was going to either make me immediately smaller (as a direct result of shedding layers of clothes due to Da Bomb’s heat index), or swiftly grow larger (as my tongue swelled with spice/heat).  But which would it be?

Mad Dog Liquid Fire Hot Sauce Review

Mad Dog Liquid Fire is the ideal introduction to the world of hot sauces.  After removing the screw-on cap and taking your first whiff of the bottle, your nose hairs will still be intact, your vision unblurred by the tame promise of the heat (or lack of heat) to come.

Your first tentative taste will reveal a vinegary liquid with a smooth consistency, mild smell and a flavor that is easy on the palate. However, what this sauce lacks in heat it makes up for in flavor.  Mad Dog’s hot sauces have long been a favorite – the company consistently offers its customers a variety of products with an array of levels of heat, from mild to ring your bell hot.  Yet Mad Dog still manages to never sacrifice flavor in the name of scoring a high number on a ‘hotness’ scale.

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Hot Sauce Review

It’s hard to ignore a bottle of hot sauce with an intense hologram on its label.  It’s even harder to over look it once your read the text (text that is set over silver, reflective skulls I might add) on the side of the bottle and its sweet nothings become imprinted in your brain: “Ever seen a ghost?  One taste of Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce and you will – your own!”  This ghost pepper edition boasts a full, hearty flavor that tastes of pine and has a sweet smell that doesn’t overpower your dining experience.  After tentatively dousing a baked sweet potato in the thick, syrupy sauce, my first coated bite revealed a serving of heat that was both immediate and all encompassing in flavor.  The sweet taste filled my mouth, and my dinner date deemed the sauce simply “physically hot” in its nature.  Continue Reading
