Heartbeat Red Habanero Hot Sauce

March 13, 2019

   Heartbeat Red Habanero Hot Sauce is quite a delectable product. You may have seen this one on Season 6 of First We Feast’s ever-popular YouTube show Hot Ones. Jeff Goldblum totally approved of it! This is an all-natural, gluten-free, vegan-friendly product made with no added preservatives, thickening agents, or even water! It’s fermented in small batches and made with only simple ingredients. It also comes in a squeezy bottle, making it easy to pour on your favourite meals. I would put this one into the category of flavour sauce due to its highly-addictive quality and low heat. It’s got a nice sweetness, tang, and light habanero flavour. As a hardcore chile head I would say that I always appreciate more heat in a habanero sauce, but in this case what Heartbeat has made here is a sauce that is highly accessible and versatile. I salute them for that! Check out my review of Heartbeat Blueberry Habanero Hot Sauce from awhile back. That is another very good sauce worth trying!

   One of the things I love about this sauce is how well thought-out the ingredient choices are. Each element complements the next, making for an all-around great-tasting product. Bell pepper and onion add some sweetness, while the white vinegar with its mild tang helps to preserve the sauce. Sugar brings in some additional sweetness but not too much. I wouldn’t say this is a very sweet sauce overall. It’s more that it has a lightly sweet finish. Red habanero is the only pepper to be found in the mix. Its floral and citrusy taste is only subtly noticeable in this one. The garlic has a mild zing and the lime juice adds an additional tangy flavour which complements the flavour of the habaneros. Kosher salt ensures that the products’ many flavours are enhanced and that there is a balance between each one. Canola oil also gives it a nice smooth consistency, binding together all the aforementioned ingredients.

   In terms of heat, I would give this one a 2 out of 10. I find it rather mild for a habanero sauce, but the flavour is mainly what makes this one stand out. I find it even less hot than most Caribbean sauces available today. Given its milder heat-level, I would recommend this sauce to everyone! Unless there’s a certain ingredient in the list that you really despise, there’s no reason you shouldn’t enjoy this one. Beginners, intermediate chile heads, and connoisseurs alike are sure to find it not only tolerable in the heat department, but also delicious!

   Add Heartbeat Red Habanero to your… everything! It’s one of those products that simply tastes good on so many different meals. I’ve mixed it with mayo, had it with burgers, tacos, nachos, pizza, soups, wings, eggs, sausages, and in all kinds of sandwiches. It’s a great dipping sauce for fries, veggies, and mozzarella sticks to name a few. You can also use this sauce as part of a marinade for your seafood, chicken, beef, and more! It comes as no surprise that I HIGHLY recommend it!

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.
