Melinda's Naga Jolokia Ketchup

December 12, 2013

  • Melinda’s Naga Jolokia Ketchup

    Be it in the beer world or the world of a chilihead you have to be open minded, if you close yourself off from products because of who makes them you lose out on the chance to find some amazing things that can replenish your faith in a company.

    Melinda’s is one of those companies for me, I had tasted several Melinda’s sauces and wasn’t to keen on any of them (now don’t get all up in arms, I know that there are some good sauces in their line up and believe we all have different palettes but what I had from the company left me wanting something more) if I wasn’t open minded I may not have added the Naga Jolokia ketchup to my last Chilly Chiles order due to the maker, I must admit I’m glad I did.

    Going into this I had only had the Heinz Tabasco ketchup myself, and not being a fan of Heinz I only dealt with it for the fun of trying it mixed with a hot sauce, which did make me start mixing my designer ketchups with designer hot sauces…but here we had a hot pepper with a lot of flavour mixed with a ketchup that wasn’t Heinze and I was intrigued.

    I poured a spoonful out and gave it a sniff and cinnamon, garlic, cloves and smokiness assailed my nostrils, yet just like with the ghost pepper it didn’t smell hot, it worried me I must admit. Trying it this is the way my brain went “OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DO----Oh the heats gone” Yes that is it, it hit with a full on boot to the taste buds but fades to just nice garlic flavour almost right after. 

    Gluten Free, no high fructose corn syrup and an amazing taste, I want more, I want a lot more. It was the perfect heat to flavour ratio and it reinvented Melinda’s for me due to as stated before not being a huge Melinda’s hot sauce fan. It is something to buy, something to try and something any chilihead could enjoy and non-chiliheads could tolerate. Do yourself a favour and buy it.

    Onwards to heat!

    PS. Another plus that was added to this from our fridge space tyrant (the punter) buying this saves space as you don’t have a bottle of Ketchup and a bottle of hot sauce to add to it in your fridge.

West African VooDoo Juice Hot Sauce

December 23, 2018

 This is, I believe, one of the very few great-tasting pepper extract-based hot sauces on the market today. The flavour profile is one which I have not been able to find in any other sauce I’ve ever tried.

Great Sauce

Nice heat that builds the more you eat! Great flavor profile and not just vinegar and chillies. Will def buy again

What a salty sauce.

Great kick but the salt comes fasty and cover everything.
Worst sauce from Iguana i tried.

Great garlic sauce

This is a great garlic hot sauce. The heat is low but the garlic and basil pack a lot of flavour. Texture is medium in nature, which always the sauce to remain in place rather then to run down whatever it's applied to.
