Pain Is Good Jalapeno Harissa

Pain Is Good Jalapeno Harissa

I've had a couple of Pain Is Good sauces in the past and always remember that they tasted really fresh and almost homemade, so I was really looking forward to this Jalapeno Harissa.

I’ve had a couple of Pain Is Good sauces in the past and always remember that they tasted really fresh and almost homemade, so I was really looking forward to this Jalapeno Harissa. Pain Is Good Jalapeno Harissa comes in a hip-flask shaped bottle, with a pleasingly textured paper label.  The sauce is quite thick, […]

Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce

Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce

Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce is made by Southwest Specialty Food, Inc (the company sometimes goes under the Ass Kickin’ brand), and this sauce comes all the way from Arizona USA. I picked this up from my local Hot Headz online shop since I love trying different wing sauces, and really liked the packaging this sauce comes in.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Creole Honey Mustard Sauce

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Creole Honey Mustard Sauce

I wouldn't normally buy mustard based sauces since I'm not a fan of the hot yellow seed, but this one caught my eye and I'm ever so pleased I did a couple of reasons. First of all, this sauce is bloody delicious. And secondly, I've opened up to mustard in general, and I'm really starting to like it with more and more foods.

Louisiana Wing Sauce – The Original

Louisiana Wing Sauce – The Original

Buffalo Wings. Man, I love Buffalo Wings. My friend got me this sauce from Texas, saying that it's very popular over there. I know that Frank's hot sauce is the most popular sauce for making Buffalo wings, but I wondered what the next big 'go-to sauce' is for wings, and apparently it is Louisiana Wing Sauce by Bruce Foods Corporation.

Smack My Ass & Call Me Sally

Smack My Ass & Call Me Sally

So, Smack My Ass & Call Me Sally is a novelty Habanero hot sauce which comes from Florida, US. As you can see, some poor lad has had his bare bottom smacked hard, and crying

Comedy-named novelty sauces – love them or hate them?  Personally I love them (‘Professor Payne Indeass Sphincter Shrinker’ is one of my favorites), but I’ll rarely buy them since I can’t help but think that a sauce should be sold on its description and ingredients alone, but perhaps I’m just being a bit stuffy?  They […]

Tabasco Sweet Chipotle and Cola Sauce & Marinade

Tabasco Sweet Chipotle and Cola Sauce & Marinade

Tabasco have got to be one of the biggest hot sauce brands out there right? I've always been surprised by how little they've expanded their product range, so I was not surprised to see this Tabasco Sweet Chipotle & Cola Sauce & Marinade in my local Sainsbury's.

Encona Brazilian BBQ Sauce

Encona Brazilian BBQ Sauce

A short review today since I doubt you'll able to buy this sauce anymore because Encona released this limited edition to coincide with the World Cup 2014 in Brazil (England fans have already forgotten this ever happened).

A short review today since I doubt you’ll able to buy this sauce anymore because Encona released this limited edition to coincide with the World Cup 2014 in Brazil (England fans have already forgotten this ever happened). This is a very brave sauce to call BBQ in my opinion, and I must applaud Encona for doing […]

Sainsbury’s Hot Pepper Sauce

Sainsbury’s Hot Pepper Sauce

I like to keep an eye on what supermarkets are doing with their own brand sauces, and it's great when you come across an attempt that is actually quite good. Well Sainsbury's, this one is a blinder.

Sainsbury’s Hot Pepper Sauce is very much in the style of a Caribbean Scotch Bonnet sauce such as […]

Cholula Chilli Garlic

Cholula Chilli Garlic

I'm a big fan of the original variety of Cholula, it's the perfect beginners hot sauce since it has a heat which almost anyone can manage, but packs in such a good taste. I usually have a bottle floating around somewhere since it's so versitile thanks to the big fresh flavour and splash on consistency.

Panola Cajun Hot Sauce Salsa Picante

Panola Cajun Hot Sauce Salsa Picante

I got this Panola sauce as part of a gift pack which came with a total of four sauces, and was surprisingly quite cheap for imported sauce (£4.99). Panola Cajun Hot Sauce Salsa Picante seems to be the 'Original' variety in the gift pack so I thought I would review it first.
