Fat Cat Strawberry Serrano Hot Sauce

March 19, 2019

   Fat Cat Gourmet Foods is an award-winning gourmet sauce manufacturing company from Orlando, Florida. Their products complement a wide range of foods, each having a very unique flavour profile. If you’re interested in learning more about Fat Cat and their products we offer here at Chilly Chiles, check out my review from awhile back of Fat Cat Chairman Meow’s Revenge. It’s another delicious product from their huge lineup of sauces!

   Their Strawberry Serrano Hot Sauce is all-natural and gluten free, made with the perfect combination of ingredients to provide a nice sweet heat. The strawberry preserves made with sun-ripened strawberries, corn syrup, fruit pectin, and citric acid as well as the fresh strawberries all make for a fresh, fruity, sweet, and sour taste. The vinegar is only mildly noticeable while the serrano peppers add a light, fruity heat. The pineapple juice adds a nice subtle tropical sweetness to complement the strawberries. Onions add some texture to the sauce while the lime juice makes for a nice tangy and citrusy quality, once again adding a nice layer to the overall flavour profile. Cane sugar of course ensures that the sauce is as sweet as it needs to be while the garlic ever-so-subtly manages to bring its mild zingy notes. Very little garlic was added in order for the overall fruity quality of the sauce to shine through most.

   In terms of heat, this one gets a 1 out of 10 from me. Serrano is already a pretty mild pepper, similar to the jalapeno, so it comes as no surprise that once you add fruit into the mix the sauce becomes even milder. Upon tasting, I immediately got the sweet taste of strawberries and then a very subtle tingle from the peppers. It’s a heat level that anyone can handle. As long as you like sweet, fruity hot sauces, and specifically like strawberries, there’s no way you won’t like this one!

   Strawberry Serrano actually has more culinary uses than you may think. Sure, it may not exactly work in pasta or a taco, but it can be used in so many other ways that almost all other hot sauces on the market cannot! It’s delicious on ice cream, pancakes, frozen yoghurt, waffles, French toast, crepes, in peanut butter sandwiches, on buttered toast, plain yoghurt, cheesecake, in a lemonade, milkshake, smoothie, fruity cocktail, and so much more! It can even serve as a sweet sauce to top your grilled meats and poultry and also works as a flavourful addition to cheese courses. There really are many possibilities with this one!

   Come by one of our store locations and give Fat Cat Strawberry Serrano 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.
