Hellfire Fear This!

March 24, 2018

  Hot SauceThis sauce is in my top 10 hottest and best-tasting non-extract hot sauces I’ve ever had. It was actually my initial introduction to Carolina Reaper hot sauces years ago and I have been enjoying it consistently ever since! Hellfire is one of my favourite hot sauce companies out there. They make incredible artisan sauces made with only the freshest ingredients, making them truly gourmet products. As with many sauces by Hellfire, this one has a complex flavour profile and contains a big list of ingredients which all blend perfectly with each other, making this sauce very versatile. This is a multi-award winning all-natural sauce which can be enjoyed by those who appreciate a sauce with intense heat, but also equally intense flavour!

   Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper is the sole hot pepper that drives the heat of this sauce. The pepper mash actually makes up over 60% of the sauce. That’s quite a high percentage of peppers per bottle! The taste of the Reaper then, is quite present in this sauce given that it is the main ingredient. The pepper actually has a nice sweet and fruity flavour…right before the scorching heat kicks in. Since this is among the better-tasting superhot peppers, it would make sense to add ingredients that would compliment the heat as well as the flavour of the pepper, thus producing an overall bold and savoury hot sauce! That’s exactly what Hellfire did with Fear This!

   The red wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar are pungent, while also adding a bit of sweetness to the sauce. The lime and lemon juice add a citrusy tang that, like the other ingredients in this sauce, contributes to its distinctly fresh taste. The sun-dried tomatoes and tomatillos provide a very light tartness to the sauce, complementing the citrus. The cilantro adds a nice herbal quality to the sauce while the curry, chili powder, paprika, cumin, and coriander make up the base of spices. These spices work in unison to provide that boldness that accompanies the heat of the Reaper. The ginger, garlic, and onion add that very subtle zing and sweetness that I always appreciate in a hot sauce that wants to be savoury and fresh-tasting.

   In terms of heat I give this sauce a 9 out of 10. It is extremely hot and should only be enjoyed a few drops at a time, even for experienced chile heads like myself! The burn of the sauce is slow and constant and I can honestly say that for anyone who is not a hardcore chile head this sauce is easily a 10 out of 10. I generally reserve 10 out of 10 ratings for extract sauces, which tend to burn more violently, and can be unpleasant to deal with at times! I believe that Hellfire’s Fear This! is most definitely more flavourful than any extract-based hot sauce you can find on the market.

   This sauce is great when added to curries, nachos, tacos, stir fries, wing sauce, marinades, pasta, meatballs, Bloody Marys, and more! Add a few drops to a salsa that’s not hot enough! Its tangy, spiced, and fresh flavour can be paired in small amounts with all kinds of meats, grilled veggies, and soups!

   I highly recommend you check out all the products by Hellfire that we carry. You will definitely find a scorching hot sauce that will suit your culinary needs! Come by one of our store locations and give Fear This! and other sauces by Hellfire a try!

As always, Keep it spicy!

High River Sauces Hellacious Hot Sauce

Quick and easy

You'll see me again

Sontava Red Label - NOT THE SAME!

Caution, the new Sontava XX Hot recipe (red label) is drastically different from the old green label sauce and not even produced in Belize anymore, switching back to Marie Sharp's as my got to sauce, dissapointed in Jardine's pure folly!
