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. Habanero’s are hot enough, but this stuff has oil of capcaisin, which is basically the distilled oil from a hot pepper. So one end we have ingredients design for pain and suffering.
At the other end? Fruit.
The first listed fruit is Tomato. Now I understand tomato is a cheap example for a fruit, but before we get to the end of the list we hit papaya, guava, pineapple, banana, passion fruit juice and guava fruit juice.
Normally, it would be safe to assume the adobe list of ingredients would produce sweet and spicy fruit with body and a flavor that lingers longer than the burn. Wanza’s Wicked Temptation certainly looks the part, with the slightly thick consistency and the deep reddish-purple color.
What I ended up getting in Wanza’s Wicked Temptation is a sauce that gets your guard down before sexually assaulting your taste buds.
On the side of the bottle, it claims that the sauce is over 2,000,000 Scoville units.
Wanza’s Wicked Temptation Hot Sauce is the sort of concoction that might be bought for novelty or by someone with a masochist streak. It comes with a dropper cap, which is good, because so far, it has only taken one drop to make me hate myself for agreeing to taste the hot sauce.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not necessarily saying that the sauce is of poor quality. I’m just saying the sauce has so much heat, it’s hard to detect much of the flavor behind the excruciating pain of the burn.
Unfortunately, I got the idiotic idea that my review wouldn’t be legitimate until I tasted the sauce on food. So I applied a single drop to a bean burrito I was eating. I took one bite and abandoned that requirement.
Wanza’s Wicked Temptation Hot Sauce has the potential to be versatile, provided one is willing to consider being equally painful on all foods as versatile.
