The Beast Hot Pepper Sauce Review

The Beast hot sauce is aptly name. This stuff has enough raging heat to make even the most avid hot sauce lover think he has gone up against a formidable force. The label warns you that the sauce contains the hottest peppers and pepper extracts in the world. A bold statement like that always prompts me to shrug a little. A lot of pepper sauces make that claim. Of those that do make the claim, about sixty percent (I’m estimating, of course) come anywhere close to fulfilling the promise. Some come closer than others. The very few who manage to live up to the words are typically so damn hot you can’t touch the stuff, so forget about enjoying the taste.

Not so with this sauce. The Beast hot sauce has a delicate aroma, a medium pour, and a rich red-brown color to it. Continue Reading

Buhba’s Butt Blaster Hot Sauce Review

Buhba’s Butt Blaster – Sure, the name sounds scary, but what’s in a name? Sometimes everything, sometimes nothing. The sauce didn’t look all that dangerous to me, which goes to prove you can’t judge a book by its cover — or a sauce by its appearance. I poured a big shot of Buhba’s Butt Blaster on a spoon and ate it like I was taking a dose of cough medicine. I noticed two things about the sauce right away. First, it is hotter than a Chines firecracker. Literally, this sauce had me doubling over. Make no mistake about it, this Buhba’s is a sauce for the professional hot sauce user only.

The second thing I noticed was how damn good Buhba’s Butt Blaster tasted even while it was leaving blisters on my tongue and causing me to revert to childhood with my speech. Seriously, this stuff has a gourmet flavor going on beneath the volcanic lava they call sauce. Continue Reading

Blair’s Mega Death Sauce Review

Blair’s Mega Death Sauce – How much would you pay for a one-inch-tall plastic skull keychain? At Insane Chicken, they sell one for $9.95 and it comes with a free bottle of Blair’s Mega Death Sauce in a special limited edition “20/20” bottle that is 20% hotter than the usual formulation to commemorate 20 years of causing intense pain to its customers. When it arrives, enjoy the keychain; I’m not sure the sauce is meant to be enjoyed.

Before you even open the bottle, the plethora of dire warnings suggest that it might be wiser to just stick with the keychain. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition Review

Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition – What a great concept. There’s a 357 bullet keychain as a gift with this bottle. What also comes with the bottle is a lengthy disclaimer and basically a contract saying you won’t hold the company responsible if you hurt yourself. That’s because Mad Dog 357 Collector’s Edition is 600,000 Scoville units on the Scoville heat index. It’s made with 6 million Scoville pepper extract. What that means is really quite simple — this is a weapon in the wrong hands. Really, you can seriously hurt yourself. I knew that was going to be the case before I even tried it, so I was prepared. I was prepared and I still hurt myself. Not bad, but enough to cause a short period of discomfort. Continue Reading

Pure Poison Hot Sauce Review

Pure Poison Hot Sauce – Wow. Pure Poison lives up to the name. The sauce is easy to pour and will burn on impact. I poured some on a spoon. Since I expected a thicker sauce, I poured a little more than I thought, and I decided to go ahead and give it a taste. The heat factor was instantaneous and definite. After I gave my mouth a moment to cool off, I decided to smell the sauce. The aroma is beautiful and savory, with an almost gourmet appeal. Beneath the heat, the taste of the sauce was the same.

The ingredients in Pure Poison Hot Sauce are simple but well blended. Habanero peppers, red wine vinegar, orange juice, garlic, garlic salt, and a healthy dose of capsaicin Continue Reading

Endorphin Rush Hot Sauce Review

Endorphin Rush Hot Sauce – Really, the name of this sauce says it all. When the human body is in pain, the brain sends out an army of endorphins to help combat that pain. This sauce sets off a rush of endorphins on contact. If you have a toothache, seriously, put a drop of this on it. The endorphins will come hard and quick. The toothache will be gone. The sauce itself will burn like hellfire, but that’s beside the point. That nagging toothache will be gone, and that’s the point, right?

I love heat. I am one of the biggest fans of heat I know, but still, I like a sauce that sets out to please my taste buds, not just torch them. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Review

357 Mad Dog Hot Sauce – Most hot sauces that are any hotter than Tabasco claim that they will make your mouth burn so much that you will be knocked on the floor. Most will, but only if you have a canker sore, or are recovering from oral surgery. Most are all talk and funny labels. They invoke burning buttholes and the fires of hell. As a result, they are great gifts. In addition, they are often tasty, and go-to sauces for chili-heads looking to spice up their pizza or eggs. However, they are not what they say they are. Not even close. They are not bottled hell-fire. They are merely a condiment.

Mad Dog 357 is the real deal. It has ruined many a half-hour period for me. It gives me a weird throbbing sensation in my ears. Continue Reading

Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce Review

Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce I’m sitting outside right now, in Georgia, on a beautiful Summer’s day. I mean, it truly is beautiful. The weather is perfect. The grill is fired up. My kids are running around having a blast, and I’m watching my gorgeous wife play with them. I’m also dipping chips in cheese laced heavily with Insane Chicken’s Cluckin’ Hot Sauce. We’re also going to do some wings using the very same sauce.

The Ghost pepper is one of the hottest peppers around. Using it in a sauce is risky, unless of course all you want to do is cause pain. Continue Reading

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce – People who are not fans of the habanero-lime taste will not be converted with this sauce. However, the lack in originality in the taste department is more than made up for with the heat.

Hot sauce aficionados are well aware of the dreaded (yet much loved) ghost pepper. Officially known as the bhut jolokia pepper, Guinness dubbed it the hottest chili pepper in 2007. Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce in all of its firey glory, is billed as “ghost pepper hot sauce.” This is somewhat misleading. Tomato paste, habanero and lime form the base to this sauce and ghost pepper powder makes a guest appearance.

The image of an atomic bomb on the bottle showcases the intent of this sauce: to explode in your mouth and annihilate your taste buds. Continue Reading

Dave’s Ultimate Insanity Sauce Review

Dave’s Ultimate Insanity Hot Sauce – Once you’ve sampled and reviewed enough different hot sauces, it can be easy to get a little jaded.You start doing hasty things, such as not bothering to use a food item to go along with the sauce, taking a swig of the sauce instead of tasting a drop off your finger tip or taking for granted the high-intensity rating on the label because the packaging has an uninteresting, generic flair to it.

Dave’s Ultimate Insanity Hot Sauce is a hideous permutation of Dave’s Insanity Sauce, which was supposedly too hot for the National Fiery Foods Show. Dave’s Ultimate Insanity Hot Sauce comes simply packed with the general Dave’s Gourmet label surrounded a crude cartoon of a smug pepper laying out in the sun. Continue Reading

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Pepper Sauce Review

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce – Mad Dog is a hot sauce company that seems to not be content with the general, table hot sauce varieties. Although they do have utility sauces, the company is not shy about producing niche flavors.

Mad Dog Teriyaki Hot Sauce is one of those niche sauces, adding an Asian tang with some smoky heat to light up any meal.

The flavor has a strong smokiness to it that masks the heat that slowly creeps into place as you eat it. There is also a tanginess to it that complements the burn. Although it is labeled as a teriyaki sauce, it definitely works better as an additive to another stir-fry sauce. Continue Reading

Grace Crushed Pepper Sauce Review

Grace Crushed Pepper Sauce – Dark red, medium pour, and full of crushed peppers, skins and seeds included. Those are the high points of this sauce. The taste is another factor to celebrate. While there are hints of preservatives in this one, that doesn’t really affect the taste in a negative way. There’s a rich hot pepper taste here that will compliment any Mexican dish, work well in chili, and find a home on any number of other dishes.

Peppers, cane vinegar, and cane sugar are just about the only ingredients holding Grace Crushed Pepper Sauce together. The crushed peppers, which provide an awesome texture and cling to the food you use this sauce on, are the starts of the show. Continue Reading

Baboon Ass Gone Rabid Hot Sauce Review

Baboon Ass Gone Rabid Hot Sauce -  I’m a huge fan of Baboon Ass Habanero Hot Sauce, so when I saw Baboon Ass Gone Rabid, I was expecting something great. I wasn’t disappointed even a little bit, but let me warn you: Baboon Ass Habanero wasn’t over-the-top hot; Gone Rabid is another story altogether.

The name of the sauce could not be more fitting. Don’t make the mistake of eating it in the same dose as you would the habanero version of the sauce. It will blow the top right off your head. The label claims this version is five times hotter than Baboon Ass Habanero, and I’m likely to believe that’s true. Continue Reading

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Sauce Review

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce – This sauce has a lot going for it right out of the gate. First, there’s the naga jolokia pepper that gives it insane heat. One little bead of this sauce on the tip of your finger will have your lips and mouth burning like a match in dry brush. To augment that heat, there’s also the African peri-peri pepper, some fresh habanero, and chili extract. Are you starting to get the picture? This is a mouth blister waiting to happen, so be careful when you use it.

Mad Dog 357 Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce lulls you into a sense of peace when you open it and take a whiff. The fruity fragrance leads you to believe that you’re in the company of a mild sauce. It’s a ghost pepper sauce, so you should know better, but there’s that sweet and fruity fragrance. Continue Reading

Venom Hot Sauce Review

Venom Hot Sauce – The front label of Venom features a fiery-tongued snake wrapped around a pepper, drawn in the style of an airbrushed sleeveless t-shirt worn by a metal head with a mullet.

Just at face value, this sauce is really difficult to call. It seems like the sort of homemade low budget hot sauce that you might find on the nearly bare shelves of a truck stop run by My Name is Earl extras who are hooked on crystal meth. This means the sauce could either taste like ketchup, or make me want to kill myself just to make the hurting stop. Continue Reading

Wanza’s Wicked Temptation Review

Wanza’s Wicked Temptation is kind of a perplexing hot sauce. It begins with the label, which is adorned with a vague figure that has long hair and eyeliner, which pretty much means this hot sauce is either the product of a sly-eyed vixen or that of a hair-metal rocker. It’s not like Wanza is a masculine or feminine name.

Wanza’s Wicked Temptation Hot Sauce doesn’t have a label that compels you to take it seriously, yet it has the heat of a sauce that doesn’t screw around.

The list of ingredients is no less confusing. After Vinegar, the sauce has habanero peppers and oil of capcaisin in it. Continue Reading

Magma Hot Sauce Review

Magma Hot Sauce – Very interesting packaging concept. I love the different creative ways hot sauces come. Magma Hot Sauce is in a primarily clear bottle that lets you see what’s going on inside. There’s a graphic on the front of the bottle that shows you what looks like a huge drop of blood spreading out across the bottle. That’s exactly what’s going on inside the bottle, only what looks like a thick pool of blood is actually capsaicin, the chemical compound in the pepper that makes it bur like hell. In Magma, the capsaicin floats in a bottle of clear liquid, daring you to shake this sauce up and give it a try.

You definitely have to shake. You don’t want to taste what’s floating at the top without mixing it into the rest of the liquid. Continue Reading

Peppers Zesty Blue Crab Salsa Review

Peppers Zesty Blue Crab Salsa – This is truly one of the most individual salsa I’ve tried in a long time. When I first saw it, I had my reservations. Combining crab meat in salsa was something I’d never seen done before. Not saying it hasn’t been done — just that it was a little different than anything I’d ever seen. One taste was all it took to hook me, though I would venture to say this salsa won’t be for everybody. It definitely falls into the acquired taste category.

Check out these ingredients. First, the blue crab. I really expected no more than a hint of crab meat. Crab is expensive and blue crab is one of the more expensive varieties. Continue Reading

Delicious Suffering Hot Sauce Review

Delicious Suffering Hot Sauce – With an ingredient hit list that boasts habanero peppers and Serrano’s, Delicious Suffering delivers pain and pleasure. The heat is butt kicking and immediate. The taste of the additional ingredients blend well with the two peppers. There’s onion, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, salt, vinegar, and a few secret spices. Add to the mix some chili extract and you’ve got a monster that tastes good and provides a hot burn.

I started this one off on a slice of soft mozzarella just to get a feel for the sauce alone. I knew the smooth texture and subtle taste of the cheese wouldn’t interfere. I was right. It didn’t stand a chance against the sauce. It did help to ease the pain a bit, because when I tried a couple drops of Delicious Suffering on a corn chip, I got the full force of the fire. Continue Reading

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

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
