Buffalo Sauce by @meatlust. A thick, sticky, glossy sauce that has a fantastic bright neon-orange colour. A nice acidic heat from the cayenne, followed by a very sweet, caramel buttery flavour. It’s certainly something different, but I’m just not liking the combination of the butter flavour (comes from added butter powder) and the high sweetness. Sorry guys, I really don’t like this one, it’s far too sickly for me, and I’ve not found a use for it that I like. If the butter flavour was toned down I think it would be much nicer, it just tastes a bit artificial to me. However I think some people may really like this sauce, so I would say it’s worth a try if you like something sweeter. 4/10.
A Zambian sauce from @manda_chilli. A very unique tasting sauce… Tastes herbal, citrusy, earthy/rooty, and spicy all at the same time. I wish I knew what spices are in there, but I think I can taste fennel and caraway. Decent heat from the Habanero, doesn’t overstay its welcome. It’s quite thick, and goes really well with white fish and chicken. Nothing wrong with this sauce, the flavour is great but it needs to be paired with the right food. 6.5/10. #hotsaucereview #chillisauce #hotsauce #chillisaucereview #mandachilli #hotsauceuk #zambia #africanchillisauce #africa from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2msp5nG

Mr. Singh’s is a family success story, one that started in a garden shed and now has it’s products in stores such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, and Ocado. It seems now that Mr. Singh’s is going from strength to strength and is planning to release more sauces and products later in the year.
First of all, I was struck back by the fantastic packaging and bottle design of Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce, a real gem on the shelf this one. Twisting the lid off for the first time, a big, rich aroma hits me – dark soy and sour fruit notes makes my mouth water.
Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce has a lovely smooth, thick consistency; it appears to the eye as sticky but actually it’s just got a glossy shine to it – a real good looking sauce that is great for pouring or dipping.
On my first try of Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce I immediately get a dark, sour, soy taste, a strong tamarind flavour is present. A sharp yet warming heat makes it’s presence, followed by a long after burn. The sauce is finished with subtle sweetness, which compliments the sourness perfectly. Really big flavours going on here.
The heat lasts but is not unpleasant; it’s a complex chilli profile and clearly comes from fresh chilies rather than an extract, lots of layers to the heat.
This BBQ Chilli Sauce is so far proving to be a versatile sauce; amazing with rice, noodles, and roasted meats, and also goes well with eggs, vegetables, and in sandwiches.
Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce is not a standard tasting American style barbecue sauce – it’s more soy flavoured than ketchup & sugar, and has much more sourness than sweetness. In fact, I’d be happy to say this seems like a successful experiment between a chilli-barbecue sauce, and a HP style brown sauce.
A huge, dark monster of a sauce, Mr. Singh has torn-up the Barbecue sauce rule book and delivered a unique and standout sauce. I’m really enjoying the sauce and look forward to using it each time.
Chipotle chillis are smoked jalapenos, usually dried or preserved in sauce, which add a wonderful warm and rich smokiness to foods. Sainsbury’s have brought out a tomato ketchup that has the trendy ingredient added to it – Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup.
The ketchup is slightly darker than a standard ketchup, and the consistency is perhaps slightly thicker too.
Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup initially tastes very familiar – the super sweet tomato ketchup flavour is here, balanced with a slight vinegar tang, but the sauce soon develops into a rich, savoury, unami flavour in the mouth, a subtle smokiness making it’s way through at the end of the tasting. The smokiness is not harsh or dominating, it adds a bit of ‘bonfire’ to the sauce.
I can’t get any chilli heat from the ketchup which is a shame, but I’d be interested to know if anyone else does. I’m not going mark it down for this since it’s not labelled as a ketchup with lots of chilli heat. I suppose you could always add some chilli flakes to the ketchup, something I’ll be doing.
Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup is a nice ketchup, the chipotle chilli adds an interesting smokey savoury note to an otherwise sweet ketchup. It goes brilliantly with food as ketchup tends to, but thanks to the chipotle this is more interesting to add to foods than other ketchups.
The sauce is priced at £1.00 for 310g, while Sainsbury’s standard ketchup is priced at £1.20 for 680g. If you’re talking value for money, I don’t believe that Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup is interesting or different enough to purchase over Sainsbury’s standard ketchup. If Sainsbury’s added some chilli heat to this ketchup then it would make it much more attractive to buy at that price.
