Ah yes, the joy that is the cleverly named hot sauce. In contrast to some of the more crass, middle school named hot sauces out there, Colon Cleaner Hot Sauce actually made me laugh. It has the look of a classic vaudevillian elixir – the kind sold out of the back of a’41 Chevy. It’s got a kindly looking old man on it and somewhere in that bottle is a pretty decent hot sauce, even if it doesn’t live up to its namesake’s claim.
The goal of these hot sauces is ironically to call in the few who are looking for something so powerful they can barely stay standing, their bowels turned to jelly. Professor Phardtpounder’s Colon Cleaner Hot Sauce is not one of those sauces. It’s a relatively medium level hot sauce with the kind of kick you would want from a table hot sauce. There are no eyedroppers for application or “dilute first” notices on this sauce.
