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!

Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost Hot Sauce

It’s a robust sauce with a smoky, tangy, and savoury flavour profile. What sticks out the most to me are the smoky Guajillo peppers and the cumin. It really is a marriage made in heaven! Water gives the sauce a more liquid consistency and balances out the acidity and salinity while...

The last dab it pretty hot but not hottest sauce I’ve had but it tastes really good

hot but still has flavor

It's I would say 4/5 in terms of heat, but it has a good flavor, unlike a lot of sauces at this heat level


It is what it is

One of the best Brands out there

I love the Marie Sharp brand. I was introduced to this brand many years ago. Although it's no longer too spicy for me, I love the flavour. I always try to have at least one bottle at home and at the office. The citrus flavour fits a lot of dishes. We even found out it's great with Christmas Turkey during a company lunch. So many people tried it, 2/3 of the bottle was gone before I could steal it back. If you haven't tried it, you should. Take in small quantities if you're not sure about the spiciness. If you like a lot of spice (Ghost pepper +++) then you won't find this hot, but you should be able to appreciate the flavour!

This sauce has great flavour and some serious heat.
