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.

This Cholula Chilli Garlic variety is not as good as the original though, let’s say that now.  The reason Cholula original such a popular and bestselling sauce is because the exceptional balance of chilli peppers and vinegar.  This Chilli Garlic variety pushes a much stronger garlic flavour but for me it’s not particularly tasty; it’s more like a dried garlic than fresh garlic flavour.  It’s also worth noting that this has no more heat than the original.

Nonetheless, Cholula Chilli Garlic is a good sauce and worth trying if you particularly like garlic, but personally I’ll stick with the original and Chipotle varieties.

      Interesting that you think the same about the Garlic variety, I’ve not spoke to anyone who favors it.

      And I think you’re absolutely right about the Chipotle variety 😉
