Hellfire Blueberry Hell Hot Sauce

October 23, 2019

   Blueberry Hell by Hellfire Hot Sauce is a classic staple in my fridge collection. It’s a multi-award-winning hot sauce which really does not surprise me one bit. Hellfire are MASTERS at balancing heat and flavour. Even when there’s a ton of heat in their sauces, they always match it equally with fresh, savory taste! This is one of my all-time favourites. It’s most probably my favourite super-hot fruit-based hot sauce I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy. When we usually hear “fruit-based hot sauce” we assume that makes its possible uses rather limited. That is not the case with Blueberry Hell, as I will discuss in more depth further down. It’s a very versatile sauce!  Be sure to check out my other reviews of Hellfire products! I’ve reviewed Fiery Fool, Evil Bastard, Devil’s Gold, Gourmet Red, Hellboy Anung Un Rama, and The Chilimaster’s Reserve! We have so many of their products and they’re all worth looking into if you like it HOT!

    This sauce has a combination of numerous fruits and peppers, all of which work so well together. These, along with other fresh ingredients, make for a flavour profile which is fruity, bold, tangy, and sweet. Blueberries, blackberries, grape juice, raspberries, pears, pineapple, beets, and papaya give the sauce a tropical, tart, and sweet taste which I find down-right delicious. Red Jalapeno peppers, Trinidad Scorpion peppers, Jolokia (Ghost) peppers, Red Serrano peppers, Red 7-Pot peppers, and Orange Habanero peppers bring all the heat! They also bring out a fresh, fruity, citrusy, and crisp flavour which is well-complemented by the other ingredients. Sugar and honey add some extra sweetness, while the lemon juice adds some more tang. Red wine vinegar is a good choice of vinegar, given that it is a bit sweeter than most other vinegar options, thus complementing the wide variety of fresh fruits in the mix. Garlic adds some noticeable zingy flavour, while the sea salt ensures that the product is well-seasoned.

   In terms of heat I would give this one an 8 out of 10. It’s got a pretty solid heat, even with all the sweetness added from the fruits and other sweet ingredients. I’m even tempted to give this one a 7 out of 10 rating, given that I’ve reached the point where I can put a solid tablespoon on my food and it doesn’t hurt me all too bad. I think that part of this may be because the huge variety of fruits and peppers added make it so good that I almost forget how much my mouth is scorching! I would only recommend this one to brave souls however. If you’re just getting into hot sauce, I would hesitate to recommend it to you if you only want to stick to what you’re comfortable with. At the same time though, if you really like fruit-based hot sauces and are looking for a challenge, look no further than Blueberry Hell! As I tell my friends and curious customers, it’s all about how much of the sauce you put on your dish or in your marinade. If you play it safe, even those of you just getting into hot sauce should be able to appreciate the flavour without having to call the fire department!

   Add some Blueberry Hell to your beef, pork, lamb, or other red meat marinades. It also pairs well with gamier meats like venison. I’ve also enjoyed it with cheese platters, meatloaf, pâté, chicken stir-fry, tuna steak, and even with my Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey dinner! Hot sauce pretty much ALWAYS goes well with mashed potatoes! Believe it or not, its fruity taste even works well as a topping to some of your favourite desserts or breakfast/brunch dishes! I’ve enjoyed it on french toast, pancakes, ice cream, whether vegan or regular, frozen yogurt, and even with tarts or pies!

   Be brave and come by one of our store locations and have a taste of Hellfire Blueberry Hell Hot Sauce!

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.

Yummy Mustard Pickle Hot Sauce is a great flavor.

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.
