Falton Cherry Agave Hot Sauce

August 17, 2019

Established in 1993 as Canada’s first fiery food store, Chilly Chiles has been heating up the nation for over 25 years! This sauce, along with the two others in this lineup, Falton Pineapple and Falton Reaper, was made through collaboration with Dawson’s to celebrate!  I love the sweetness of Falton Cherry Agave and how it has such a smooth texture. It’s easily my favourite cherry-based hot sauce I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy. If you love cherries, enjoy a mild heat, and are generally a fan of fruit-based hot sauces, you should absolutely give this one a try! Check out my review of Falton Reaper if you’re interested in learning more about one of my top 5 favourite reaper-based sauces of all time! Really!

The flavour profile of this one is sweet, tangy, fruity, and mildly tart. Just like with all other sauces made by Dawson’s this one is only made with simple, natural, and purposeful ingredients! Crisp red jalapenos add some heat and fruity flavour, with the “chili” which I presume are crushed red chili flakes, also adding some warmth. The cherry brings that fruity, sweet, and tart quality while the agave raises the sweetness of the sauce. There’s just enough vinegar to preserve the sauce and add a bit of tang. Garlic, one of my favourite ingredients in hot sauces, adds a light zing to complement the peppers. Extra virgin olive oil adds a very subtle fruity quality and silky texture. High quality oil such as this is one of my favourite ingredients in any sauce with heat. Sea salt, as always, fulfills its role of seasoning the product in a balanced way.

In terms of heat, I would give this one a 2 out of 10. It’s a pretty mild one, so I imagine that virtually everyone can handle it. Its pronounced sweetness also mellows down the heat of the jalapenos, so I’d also say it’s definitely a bit milder than most other jalapeno-based hot sauces on the market. Because of its great flavour, I’m sure that people with all different heat tolerance levels can appreciate it!

Add Falton Cherry Agave Hot Sauce to so many of your favourite meals. It’s great as not only a marinade but also a grilling sauce or glaze on your chicken, beef, shrimp, pork, and veggies. You can also enjoy it with cheese, club sandwiches, burgers, stir fries, and more. Mix it with mayo or sour cream for a sweet and zesty dip as well. I can also attest to the fact that it works great as a salad dressing. You can take my word for it!

Why not celebrate with us over 25 years of Chilly Chiles! Come by one of our store locations and give Falton Cherry Agave Hot Sauce a try!

As always, Keep it spicy!

CaJohns Hydra Hot Sauce

February 11, 2020

CaJohns Hydra Hot Sauce is definitely a force to be reckoned with! Made with 7-Pot Primo chilies, it’s got a fresh heat that you’d expect to get from this brand. Hydra is in fact a very pepper-forward sauce, meaning that much of the flavour comes from the main pepper itself.

Dawson Original Hot Sauce

Smells good. Tastes good. Hot as hell. But manageable.

The toe was damn hot!!!

The toe of satan is friggin so hot. It's one thing to eat something hot and swallow it. The toe is 9 million scolville but you are sucking on it. Need I say more!!! Picture was for fun but that was about 20 mins after!!

Perfect if you like strong vinegar-y sauces.

So my partner loves this sauce, but she loves kimchi and all things vinegar/acid-y. So I'm giving this 4 stars based on her opinion.

The normal Hellfire Detroit is one of my favorite sauces of all time for reference; however Bourbon Habanero Ghost is too tart/acidy for my taste, its also considerably hotter (which is welcome for some but a difference to note), I'd say 40% hotter than normal hellfire.

Good flavour with lingering heat

This is a pretty darn hot sauce, but the underlying flavour is still noticeable. This is a good one to have in your collection for those liking a strong kick now and then.

So good!

Bought this set as a gift for my brother who collects hot sauce and he liked it a lot. The Chicago one works well with guacamole! While the Adobo loco packs a punch. 10/10 would purchase and try other stuff again! Also the packaging is great and it arrived in perfect condition.
