20 Best Hot Ones Hot Sauces
Hot Ones Season 19 Warmup Pack | Hot Ones Hot Sauce
HEAT | 2/10, 3/10, 5/10 | Featuring the mildest up to medium hot sauces from the Hot Ones Season 19 lineup!
SOURCING | Small-batch hot sauce made with high-quality ingredients and no artificial preservatives.
Born from a delicious accident! When a batch of The Classic was made with 10x more garlic than usual, a new classic was created. This limited edition, blue label sauce is made with organic Fresno chiles straight from Smokin Eds farm, giving the sauce a beautiful earthy, sweet flavor and mild heat.
When balanced with the extra garlic, it makes for a must-have table sauce that adds depth and warmth to any dish. Excellent on eggs! Perfect for pizza! Wonderful on wings (of course). Add it to elote or spice up a shrimp scampi.
The possibilities are as endless as the garlic flavor. Like a sriracha but with no sugar!.
At home my wife and father-in-law loved using Crystal hot sauce on just about everything, but this sauce has become the new favorite. I think after tasting this sauce its going to be a new staple in the house, and we won’t go without it.
The sauce has a lot of garlic in it, but we really like it that way, it’s somehow both really garlicy but not too garlicy. If you like the Classic, or Crystal, but want something with a bit more flavor TRY THIS ONE NOW! It goes on everything and it’s great.
Try it on eggs, chicken sandwiches, nachos, tacos, fajitas, potato skins, pizza, really anything!.
I ordered this sauce as the Classic was unavailable. I got hooked on the Classic when my roommate bought some, and I needed more. This version is somehow both the same great taste, but the garlic makes it different enough that it truly is its own sauce.
And holy it is delicious! If you’re not big on heat, this is perfect. The garlic definitely rounds out the edge of the Classic and both sauces are have a kick that won’t knock you down. This sauce has become of the standards in the household stock.

I’ve been a huge fan of The Classic lineup for a while now. The Garlic Fresno was my go to until this came out. Chili Maple is amazing. Not really hot, the sweetness is perfect and it goes great with a lot of different foods! Slap it on a slice of pizza, a breakfast sandwich or go with wings for, for better lack of a perfect term, a Classic experience.
I ordered two more bottles because of just how good this sauce is. The combo of sweet maple, garlic and chilis is just great. Plus with how well off shipping is, it’s a steal for how good it is, you gotta try it!.
I almost never write reviews but this is my first buy from heatonist and I had to after I got this. I have been looking for a decent sauce not too hot or too mild for eggs for years and I’ve finally found it.
I’ll admit if there is maple flavor it feels understated but still a mild sauce that has some heat to it from the fresno chilies and tastes awesome!.
I love the flavor, but it’s not a versatile as I’d like it to be that’s about the only downside. I bought this in a set and I believe it’s because I prefer more heat now on my palate that I’d like to have this a bit hotter.
But this is fine for appeasing people who don’t like too spicy of things.
Fantastic quality products that taste great! My fiance and I love hot sauce so I got him this pack for Christmas. This was an excellent set with different flavor profiles that go with just about everything from eggs to wings.
High quality hot sauce that is not watered down like a lot of brands we have tried – these are thick with quality ingredients and packed with flavour. The packaging was also spectacular with some neat decals and it shipped very quickly! I’ll definitely be trying more hot sauces from Heationist.
It’s our favorite TRIO so far! It has something for everyone in the house can be used on literally everything! We don’t go breakfast lunch or dinner without a dab Or slathering on something! The Verde is a nice blend but not too hot.
The verde and bbq are my favorites. My husband loves the BBQ! Sweet tangy w heat. But the Rojo hot sauce is his absolute favorite hot sauce (except the Ginger Goat & Apollo not in this trio!) withoit being too hot.
No wings are naked in this house! Ever! We love Heatonist and are spreading the word & love!.
I have bought this trio a few times now and honestly can not get enough. They are all great in combination with different foods. The flavor is great and I honestly couldn’t be happier with them. I’m always wanting to try new things but there is also something to sticking to what you like and I very much enjoy these! My favorite one is the green one, followed by the red, and lastly but not least the Barbacoa only because in my opinion it is not as widely used for me personally.
If you are on the fence, get off and get this trio pack. You’ll thank me later.

I was happy I finally got this sauce, I had been looking forward to it for a long time. I enjoy every sauce I have gotten from Classic Fresno to Triple X. You guys havent made a sauce I dont like. That being said, this one slapped me in the face.
I dumped it all over a piece of pizza like it was Classic but soon realized the hard way, you guys really let the Pepper X pull an Emperor Palpantine and it used its hate to make it powerful and threw me to the dark side.
It tastes amazing! But the heat tore me apart. 100% my fault for thinking this was a ‘tiny’ amount of Pepper X to just give more flavor. This brought the heat, tears of pain and laughter. Keep it up guys!.
So here I am with my new season 19 box and the two separate bottles of classic. First my favorite red and second the Classic Black Label. The silliness that is me thought it would be closer to the other classic hot sauces and didn’t fully comprehend what the pepper x was.
So I’m the spirit and excitement of trying my new tasty treasure I poured a nice hearty amount onto a tortilla chip and WHAM insta pain. I would like to comment on the actual flavor of the sauce but my tongue forgot what tasting was.
For those who are the everyday heat seekers this one is for you. I’ll stick to my red. That’ll teach me to not read a label.
The mistake that every hot sauce lover makes at least twice – Brand new hot sauce arrives and I was so excited to try it out. Did I pour a wee bit on my finger to test the spice level? Sure did not. Did I pour an unreasonable amount on a pile of Mac & Cheese? Sure did.
I was in a rush so I ate the two cups of fiery, cheesy noods in less than 7 mins. As I try to coherently present an issue to a group at work, I realize that I made a huge mistake. I didn’t test the heat.
Instead, I consumed dairy laced molten lava and this presentation would have to wait. Great flavor for a superhot sauce. IT’s not all lava. At the end of the day, I didn’t get fired and found a new hot sauce.
General use for me is a dab or three on my lunch and dinner every day, but this time, alongside a slew of other sauces, a friend and I tried a hot wing challenge just for fun. Dingo’s Psycho sauce melted our faces, Tyrfing’s Curse was tasty, and Collards and Ghost was.
we expected more flavor, but it didn’t quite land for either of us. Maybe my expectations were too high there.
So this bad boy, man tell you what, the heat is good. Eat to much you gonna cry. But i had ordered the bomb sauce, so in comparison to this it taste and feels better. The bomb hesitates, hits and omg there is no flavor its just pain.
This beautiful sauce has great flavor and great level of heat. Its still edible. Thats half the battle, and it actually taste good. Get it. Its less killer then the bomb. Dont get that one, it hurts, get this.
Burn: Delayed then escalates, a lot Flavor: Zesty/citrus with a smokey pepper awesomeness! Dab: ON EVERYTHING! I absolutely love the Reaper pepper. Got hooked on Highway 395 beef jerky with Carolina Reaper a while back.
My wife introduced me to “First We Feast presents ‘Hot Ones’ ” on YouTube and I was in love! Now I go to local chicken spots for thier hottest item and hit it with some last dabs! Check out my video!.
I bought the Los Calientes Duo sauce pack as a gift for my dad, who was using a rather generic hot sauce for his spice kick. I knew he would like these because I’ve tried all of the Los Calientes varieties after discovering them on the Hot Ones show.
These are some of the best hot sauces I’ve ever had. They really are the perfect match of heat and flavor, as advertised! It’s impossible to say which one is tastier. I thought I liked the red one the best, but the green had something to say about that.
And then the barbacoa version said “hold my wing!” They are all delicious and perfect for any lover of hot sauce. I used them on everything from chicken to eggs, fish and steak, and they would be just as good on pork or vegetables.
These sauces are incredible. We cook with it, add it to just about everything. Los Caliente rojo is great with spaghetti sauces, soups, stews it gives it that perfect month watering flavor. Being from Maine where lobster is a staple cuisine we add Los Caliente verde to the butter, and “WOW” what an “EXPLOSIVE” flavor!! To your over the top Scoville sauces and everything in between the flavor of food is enhanced with your sauces.
This stuff is “addictive”. Looking forward to my next order. “Keep them coming “. My thanks to everyone. Mike.
First I’d like to thank the team for the phenomenal service that I receive every time I order. They are always happy to answer questions about past releases, and any future sauces. As well as helping me find new sauces to try.
I have several different favorites as far as “hot sauces” go. The Los Calientes I really like on a Deluxe/Supreme pizza, but it goes great with a lot of things. I just like the cheese, sauce, and veggie contrast with these particular sauces.
To me on a heat scale of 1-10 peppers; this is a 1 or 2 pepper max. Bursting with flavor, very mild, and warm. Definitely a favorite “hot sauce” for me, and my family. I will certainly continue to purchase these sauces.
The last sauce was nice and hot but left a little to be desired flavor wise. 1st sauce is PACKED full of flavor and can be used in many ways. The Oaxaca sauce is a nice in between that pairs well with any form of chicken or mexican style dish.
I cannot recommend this pack enough! Each one is delicious in their own unique way. The classic and Los Calientes have amazing flavor with very tolerable heat for those who don’t enjoy the burn so much.
I just tried the Last Dab this morning with breakfast and I was very diligent with how much I added to establish a baseline. I loved it!!! If you love heat you’ll love the Last Dab, it packs a punch and is very tasty.
It’s very evident they did an incredible job making delicious sauces with heat. The service was also amazing, it arrived earlier than expected and I got a complimentary bottle of Classic with different ingredients.
Haven’t tried it yet but I know it’ll be great. The bar has been set to a new standard among hot sauces!!!.
Bought this to start a hot sauce shelf for work. I tried these all out at home to see what was what here, and was not disappointed in the slightest. The classic is amazing overall with heat and flavor, the Los Calientes Classic is a straight homerun that starts out a little sweet then the heat creeps up and hangs with out over powering the delightful flavor.
The Last Dab XXX, this thing is a beast, I ended up using a Tablespoon not thinking things through with my eggs, oh lord what a very very bad idea. This thing took me down and had my stomach screaming at me the remainder of the day for being an idiot.
I now know what it is called the Last “Dab” as that is all you honestly need. 10/10 will recommend and buy again!.
My first purchase! I bought this pack, because I’m looking to get the Season 13 pack later, but I first wanted to try the original Classic, Los Calientes, and Last Dabs before experiencing their successors.
The Classic: Yes! This has a wonderful taste, and has a considerable amount of heat for a starter sauce. Kudos. Replace that yicky-tasting Tabasco with this stuff and you should be a happy camper. Can’t wait to try the garlic edition, now.
Los Calientes: I wrote a review for this already as an individual sauce, rated it 4/5. Now that I am further into the bottle, I wish I rated it less another star. My batch had the cumin flavour overpowering, and though I don’t mind it still, I’m liking it AND cumin less.
I’ve only seen one other complaint about it, so I think it must have been a faulty batch. Shame, because I can tell it is otherwise a fantastic sauce, excellent heat to sweet ratio. Hopefully, the Rojo will redeem things for me.
The Last Dab: LOL! Well, it does its job in burning your mouth off quite nicely. The taste isn’t bad at all. if you CAN taste past the inferno going on internally. This could have been a mini-bottle and it would have sufficed for me.
Not really big on it being a mustard, but now I am excited to try the other hotter ends of the season 13 pack, along with whatever improvements that were made to bring us Apollo. Very tasty sauces!! Can’t wait to try more!.
I just recieved this as a gift from someone I knew I enjoy hot sauces. I am hooked! they are both amazing hot sauces that you can use on anything. The classic is definitely replacing franks as my go to anytime sauce.
The garlic is just as good, if not better! I now am already looking at all the other sauces to order from heatonist makes cause these are veryimpressive.
Great sauces – similar to a classic wing sauce, but much more flavor. Heatonist knows what they are doing and offers a great balance of heat and flavor. I am not huge on super hot either – this has just the right kick.
Similar heat to a “medium” sauce at Wings N Things!.
Firstly, I’d like to say: I love the show and I love all the time and energy you guys put into your product. I don’t mean this to come off as cold or bitter at all. but I feel I owe it to you to write an honest review.
It’s possible after being a fan for so long that I may have just built up this unattainable notion of what the sauces were supposed to taste like. That being said, I was a little disappointed. I was expecting either extreme heat or extreme flavor and I didn’t experience much of either.
Everyone comments on the flavor of the Classic. I was really looking forward to that one. But all I could taste was garlic and black pepper. It fell pretty short of the mark for me in terms of a go-to sauce.
Out of the three sauces I tried, the Los Calientes had the best flavor. But even there it seemed to fall a bit short of my expectations. The heat was far less than what I had expected for the middle spot.
Again, this might just be the mental bar I’ve set from being a fan for so long. Even with the Apollo (I gave it a pretty fair shake too. probably 6-8 drops spaced over a couple tenders) not nearly as spicy as I would have thought and the flavor seemed lacking.
I didn’t toss the tenders because I wanted to be pretty miserly considering the price point of the sauces. But I might do a full on coating next time just to get the full experience. Again, just wanted to offer my honest opinion.
I love you guys and I love the show. Thank you for everything!.
Long time fan of the show and long time fan of outrageously hot things. Top to bottom, soup to nuts, this was an amazing holiday experience. Didn’t have any wings, but all the sauces tasted great on pizza.
The Classic and Los Calientes pack a ton of flavor. They are well balanced but are very specific. The garlic-forward Classic was a great choice for pizza. Los Calientes takes me straight to Mexican flavors.
The cumin hit me immediately and I can’t wait to try it on my favorite tacos. The Last Dab Apollo? What can I say? Mission accomplished. I’m writing this review through teary eyes and a sniffy nose, sweat still running down my neck and drenching my collar.
It’s almost entirely just the Apollo pepper puree and the heat is instant, but the flavor of the pepper is unique and really comes through. I also want to give props to the design of the labels and the presentation of the entire box.
The whole experience was a treat. I’ll sum it up with a quote from my 5-year-old: “Daddy, your poop is going to feel like you sat on a jelly fish. ” Indeed, son, indeed. What a journey.
All very good sauces! Los Calientes has got to be my favorite of the bunch. It’s a bit sweet but I love to put it on my eggs. The garlic flavor in the classic is also very good as a garlic lover, and the Apollo sauce is great for packing a punch.
I recently put it into some rays bbq sauce and it was amazing to have that immediate sweet flavor. Followed up by that slow building and intense heat.
This hot sauce purchase is one of my favs. All the sauces are great and the Hot Heads sauce I gave to my niece for her birthday and she loved it. I also asked Heatonist to send me a sticker so she could put it on her laptop and they did! Great buy, great company, and that bliss and vinegar is just amazing! It’s a soft sauce, not too hot but oh so sweet and delicious.
Hot Heads was a heat that smacks you quick and hangs around with such a great flavor. We put it on some chicken and it was like peanut butter and jelly. Hoff’s was surprising to me. It’s good, it has a nice heat.
The flavors are something that stand out with this one. Love them all. Love this app. Love this company!.
Good variety! The HOT HEADS one was surprisingly hot — definitely had my eyes tearing up. Using this one in small doses. HOFFS – my husband’s favorite, and has become the daily sauce on scrambled eggs.
YELLOWBIRD – I was so excited to try this sauce! Coconut and strawberry flavors are strong, and surprisingly it works well. Very mild, was great on chicken wings.
I bought this sauces for my son, he is autistic and we are awaiting results to see if he has cancer or not. But when he sees your boxes coming in the mail it makes his day, on that day we have chicken wings for dinner to try every single sauce we bought.
You make my son smile and happy, at this particular moment in his life every good moment and every smile counts, he has always been sick in and out of hospitals. But this sauces are the talk of our house and makes my son a little happier every day (yes, he used them every day).
I do not like my mouth and throat to be set ablaze, but I do like the Warmup Pack from Hot Ones Season 12. Jade Jaguar is my new favorite. It’s great on eggs and anything else if you like jalapeno flavor.
It’s more complex than Tabasco’s jalapeno hot sauce. Chipotle & Habanero hot sauce is a nice addition to chili or anything that could use a nice slightly smoky kick. Hotter than El is a very nice hot sauce with plenty of heat without the long burn.
It’s a great sauce to taste ghost pepper and definitely has more heat than the others. It’s still interesting that they somehow made ghost peppers approachable to those only looking for mild sauces. All are complex in their flavor profiles.
This pack offers a great range of heat in small steps for those not wanting to burn up their taste buds. I find myself looking for things to put these hot sauces on all the time.
I was a little disappointed in this pack. All three have potential but they just didn’t hit the mark with me. The Jade Jaguar’s flavor was a little weak – would have def liked a much bolder flavor, but instead seemed almost watered down.
The Hotter Than El was too vinegary for me. The heat is wonderful, but it’s a vinegar overload and overwhelmed the other flavors. My favorite was the Fresco Sauce, but even that was still pretty average compared to other sauces I have ordered.
Once I realized carrots were one of the main ingredients, the flavor made more sense to me. Out of the three sauces, this is the one that I believe I will use the most, however, I don’t see myself finishing off the other two.
All three of these sauces had very unique flavors and were more than just hot. The Jade Jaguar was sweet but it paired well with several types of food and was very diverse. I used it on a seafood salad and the lime was a great compliment to it.
The Fresco Sauce has a mild chipotle flavor to it. The Habanero side could have used a little more kick but another versatile sauce that I tried in a couple of soups and it worked very well. All three can be used for any meal and are especially good on eggs.
My husband loves the hottest of the hot sauces (*he’ll “Last Dab” anything), but the only heat I can tolerate without crying too much is fresh ginger root tea and gochujang in my cooking. Ginger and gochujang seem to have a different kind of heat to them, and as long as I don’t use too much gochujang in my food, I’m ok – I just love the flavor of it so much! Other than those 2 things, I’m not good with any kind of heat/ spice at all – *I’m a bad Texan – lol.
That being said, I’ve wanted to find a hot sauce I might enjoy, so when I saw they made one for kids – I jumped at the chance to try it. It’s delicious, and I eat it on everything – especially eggs! It’s got just enough of a kick that hits me at the back of the tongue, while still allowing me to taste everything.
I don’t like when something is so hot (in terms of spice) that I can’t taste the food anymore. It also has a delicious tartness and mild sweetness to it that reminds me of a delicious tomatillo salsa verde, which is my absolute favorite.
I think I might be ready to try another mild flavor, but will always keep this one nearby! I love that I can read and understand every ingredient on the label, and the shipping was fast. Highly recommended!.
Both my wife and I have ventured through a lot of hot sauces all the way up to Apollo. We wanted to try our kids with this to introduce them into the world of heat. However, this tastes like baby food the banana and spinach really push through and not in a good way.
The flavor and consistency are like that of baby food, picture anything with spinach and banana and add some apple cider vinegar and a hint of lime. Maybe we are not the normal spice level which is true but I was really hoping to see this sauce do well but there’s way too much going on and I know we definitely have a different heat index than most people.
If your kids are fairly adventurous already and eat any type of hot sauce this will not be a good experience for them or yourself even for new experiences into the heatonist realm. I would not recommend this sauce.
It’s too much like baby food, go with the Hot ones brand Garlic Fresno for your kids that is loaded with flavor and enough kick for them to handle, my kids love that one! We all tried this and just did not like it.
i’ve always been sensitive to spice & finally i found something for me. it tastes great & has interesting flavor profiles unlike anything i’ve tried before. i can’t wait to for more opportunities to use this on different things! it’s geared for kids but im almost 30 & this is something i wish i grew up having! i love the jalapeño flavor but no heat, tangy slightly sweet apple flavors are amazing.
i hope this sauce is here to stay forever!! definitely something i told my friends about & encourage them to try too.
The first thing was the yellow color of sauce. I didnt know how I would feel. The 2nd thing I noticed after taking the seal off was the way it smelled. Sweet and flavorful. I sd oh this one is going to be good.
Not wanting to wait to cook something, I shook it up poured some on a spoon to taste. I was blown away. I love the taste of the pineapple and mango mixed in with the other ingredients. Just enough sweetness for a hot sauce.
There is a tiny hint of spice but it is so mild. This sauce is very tasty. I will definitely be buying more.
I’m 31, and as I said in my “The Green” review, I have very bad GERDs, so anything spice really triggers it. I liked Green, but The Yellow is AMAZING! There is a perfect blend of spice and flavor that I’ve never tasted before! It’s hot enough that I can taste it, but not hot enough it triggers acid reflux.
The flavor is something else, I don’t even know how to explain it. I feel like I’ve had it before. This has become my favorite sauce, I plan to buy more. AWESOME job, Hot Ones.
I did not in fact, buy this for my son but for myself, because I was interested in the fruit aspect on this. And Holy s**t it is so good. This is perfect when I want a small kick but lots of flavor! All the Hot Ones sauces have such good flavor – keep going guys, they are awesome.
I cannot stop putting it on everything. Absolutely one of my new faves. I hope this is always on offer.
Wow, I don’t know what else to say but I’ll try my best. Hot Ones and Heatonist have brought three great sauces that you’ll be dying to get more of once you’ve run out. The Classic Garlic Fresno edition packs a bit more bunch than you’d expect from the mild end of a wing lineup but the amount of flavor will leave you savor every bit of it.
Bold Garlic and vinegar tang with a back end of Fresno to kick you in the mouth, I love this for vegan chicken, wings and chips. Los Caliente Verde could quite possibly be one of the most delicious sauces I’ve ever tasted.
Sweet, slightly smokey, brightness of lime and apple cider vinegar mixed with the tomatillos, garlic onion and cumin really bring a well rounded balance of flavor. More mellow than the Garlic Fresno classic in comparison of heat but more than makes up for it in flavor.
Thankfully I bought a second bottle because you’ll find yourself pouring it on burritos and breakfast tacos not to mention dipping everything you can into it. Try dipping a spicier sauce tossed wing into it for a bigger flavor bomb.
Kudos to this achievement. The Last Dab Apollo. That’s it, that’s the review. This sauce is exactly what you expect from a sauce sourced from the newest hottest pepper. Gone are the frills of mustard and vinegar tang and earthy turmeric coriander blend from previous versions such as the yet the quick crescendo of heat remains.
If you’re looking for heat this is your choice but personally I found this more as an additive. Blend with Mayo or other condiments for a spicy sandwich or burger or drop an amount into a simmering sauce to liven it up by a large margin.
All but the most hardened of spice addicts will use it sparingly but lack of other notes leaves the door open to many cooking applications if you are brave and creative enough. They’ve done it again with gusto.
I had some high Hopes for the classic after seeing it on Hot Ones and several people had positive visceral reactions with it. The Classic Blue Label, for me had too much vinegar. I prefer my sauces to be thicker as well.
This has the consistency of water with bits in it. The vinegar flavor was a bit too much in this one, not enough pepper flavor, and the garlic was just right. I might never use it enough to empty the bottle.
The Los Calientes was a bit thicker but not much, probably from the blend of more ingredients vs the Classic. The flavor was nice though. I’ll probably use this more often than the others in the pack.
The Apollo was good. I don’t like too much sweet or smoky and this was a great blend of that. I tried it on several different types of food like my breakfast to adding a kick in some curry. It didn’t take away from the food flavor but added a welcome ‘missing’ piece of flavor along with lasting heat.
I don’t mind vinegar, but this pack seemed to just have a bit too much.
I’d have to say that The Classic Garlic Fresno is by far my favorite! I enjoyed the vinegar and garlic balance. The Los Calientes was tasty as well, but I prefer the Rojo flavor more as it’s a better blend and is smoky.
The last Dab to me was not tasty at all. It is HOT, but that’s obvious. I’m not sure why people mentioned that it didn’t taste bad, when to me it tasted like chemicals and had been manufactured. It’s still a good party tool, so I’m not disappointed in my purchase at all.
I’m a senior citizen tired of the same old flavors of food and spices. Never been what you’d call a ‘hot’ spice kind of person but I’ve wanted to try the sauces with fruit base for a while. Very hesitant to buy just any brand figuring it would be a waste of money.
Having watched Hot Ones with Sean I felt I could trust his word and the brand. I wasn’t wrong when I chose the ‘kiddie’ yellow and green. Delicious. Just the right amount of flavor without killing my tastebuds.
I started by using them in scrambled eggs and on hard boiled eggs. I’ve since added meats and even canned veggies, even increasing the amount I use. I feel I can now officially say ‘I eat hot sauce’.
Thank you for helping me overcome my ‘I’m tired of the same old same old” food issues. ❤💯.
Initially i bought this for my 13 yr old boys birthday. He eats TAKIS like candy and i thought this would be much healthier. LOL well it was NOT spicey enough for him but my 11 yr okd boy tried it and loved it and ate half the green bottle.
Lol i loved them both and partial to the yellow on chicken. Im old so spices affect me. I have plenty of tums. My 9 yr old girl thinks they are both still to spicey for her. These sauces are great and infused with fruit and tastes great.
You wont regret purchasing the JR sauces. Just use your best judgement for the ages of the kids you try this with. Your going to love the duo pack. I promise!!!.
Not spicy enough for me being over 50 but my spouse liked them. My 14 year thought them okay but not spicy enough either. Couldn’t get my 10 year old to try them. The green one had a better after taste then the yellow one.
I would say a little over priced but at this point that could be inflation. I think overall they were passable and certain worth trying for Kids 12+.
Each sauce is a spicy delight. Well balanced flavors & heat make each one come alive. Dawson’s Shawarama sauce is thick, rich & tangy. Great on grilled foods & perfect for marinades. Shaquanda’s West Indian Curry is an explosion of taste.
A wonderful table sauce & perfect in mac & cheese & stews to add that extra fire. Angry Goat Pepper Co. Goat Rider is the right amount of heat & bold flavor. It blends beautifully in homemade BBQ sauce & perfect on ribs.
All & all the warmup pack is a perfect selection & variety of heat & flavor. Well worth it.
I really love the flavor of the Dawson’s Shwarma sauce. It’s not that hot so easy to mix with all sorts of food. Favorite pairing so far was on a salad with red pepper hummus. It’s real thick so great as a condiment The Angry Goat Pepper definitely has more heat to it, but there is a slight sweetness in this sauce that really shines.
It’s a thin sauce, so be careful pouring. Haven’t found my ideal pairing yet, but it’s gone pretty well with most things I’ve tried so far. The West Indian Curry sauce didn’t quite hit how I was expecting, but still a tasty sauce.
Overall I would say this pack is well worth it, not too high on heat, and a lot of interesting flavor.
Dawson’s is one of my favorite sauces I’ve had. It’s not real hot but the flavor is amazing. The goat is different in a good way. A lot of balsamic flavor makes it really good in beef. Nice kick to it too.
The other sauce is incredibly thin and I find a lot of it runs off and is wasted. I’m disappointed with this one.
Hot Ones hot sauces are some of the best on the market. They are made with high-quality ingredients and have a great flavor. The company also has a commitment to social responsibility, which is evident in their support of small farmers and their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.
Overall, Hot Ones is a great company that makes delicious hot sauces.
