Red Ghost Hot Sauce Review
Sense incinerating, all consuming, tongue blistering, brain boiling and growing in degree; Flesh devouring, sinus draining, eye ducts tearing, and worst of all…It only comes in a 5 oz bottle!
Hey fellow Chili Heads!
This is “Atomic Eh?” giving you a chance to “experience” some of the “atomic heat” baby! (And I am not talking about what you get from your local tax auditor!) As the “heat” of our tax season is coming to a close, many of us are breathing a sigh of relief, as we file our taxes, and hope that we won’t hear about them ever, ever again. But when it comes to barbeque sauce or hot sauce…that is something we want to experience over and over—even if it “taxes” our ________________! (I’ll let you fill in the blank.)
I have to tell you that I just love spicy food. I am always searching for a new product to try. I love the sweet taste of the peppers that come fresh from gardens all over the world. This obsession to consume is part of many cultures, beliefs, countries, and religions. (Not to mention my family as well.) Nothing seems to want to hold back this age-old adoration of the almighty pepper. One of my favorite, all time spiciest peppers that I have tried is called the Ghost Pepper. (Yes, this pepper should scare you!) This pepper also goes by the name of the Naga Bhut Jolokia pepper and there are several spicy varieties out there. For a long time this pepper held the world record for being the hottest you can get. Every one of these varieties is more blistering then the last. The less water and more heat that this “Atomic” plant gets…the hotter their fruit becomes. Right now people are starting their gardens and hoping for the biggest crop ever. If you are like me, and you live in a climate that is not conducive to growing peppers, then this is what you do….go online, type in Insanechicken.com and try this sauce that I am going to tell you about. It’s a good one!
I must admit that I was a little apprehensive about this sauce when it arrived. I love the label. It has everything that a hot sauce label should have in my opinion. The artwork stimulates a mix of emotions from friends of mine that have seen this. I was told that it creates a little fear and a whole lot of curiosity. Just what the producer wants I imagine.
As a fellow Chili Head, you have to appreciate the ingrediants in this product. Listed on the side of the bottle, It says…
Cayenne Pepper 40,000 Scoville Units
Habanero Peppers 200,000 Scoville Units
Naga Bhut Jolokia 1,000,000 Scoville Units
This, my friends, is some HOT sauce. When I opened it, I could immediately smell the spicy Cayenne peppers and also the fruity smell of the Jolokia…not to mention a little burn in the back of my nose. So my wife was kind enough to make some loaded nachos for my taste test. (One might wonder if it was I that was loaded when I tried this but I swear, it was just the nachos!) The sauce comes with a little pour spout so that you don’t ruin your food. A little of this sauce goes a long way! I poured a little on and tried it. The vinegar doesn’t really come through in the taste, but the peppers are wonderful. It’s hot! The heat just builds to a point and burns. The biggest problem with this sauce that I can say is the taste…IT TASTES GOOD! I can’t get enough. After pouring this all over my nachos I was sweating non-stop from the heat, my toes were doing the happy dance under the table from the pain, and my sinuses were releasing down the last year’s worth of snot. Looking back, I imagine that I was not a pretty picture, but let me tell you-I WAS HAPPY! For some reason my wife decided, after watching me, she was not going to try this sauce…don’t really understand why. Plain and simple the sauce is good. It’s hot, spicy, flavorful, and natural. (No funky ingredients that you can’t pronounce) I give it a five out of five for flavor, appearance and label design.
Thank you Insanechicken.com for introducing me to another great product. This is a product that I will have to keep in stock. For all of you that haven’t yet had the pleasure of trying this sauce, get those taxes filed and…get to it! Red Ghost Hot Sauce is worth it, and don’t let the “Ghost” scare you!
Keep it hot and keep it spicy!
