How Sweet it is! Tabasco Sweet&Spicy

June 28, 2017

We all know Tabasco sauce – that trusted staple of home cooks and chefs everywhere.  Just ask for it at most any restaurant, and they’ll gladly bring it to you. It’s one of those sauces that’s been around for so long, it’s become an iconic product. This American traditional hot sauce dates back nearly 150 years, when the McIlhenny Company first began making Tabasco brand products in 1868 on Avery Island, Louisiana. The Tabasco line includes a range of different sauces: the Original Red Sauce, Green Jalapeño Sauce, Chipotle Pepper Sauce, Buffalo Style Hot Sauce, Habanero Pepper Sauce, Garlic Pepper Sauce, Sriracha Sauce and, of course, the Sweet & Spicy Sauce.

     The Sweet & Spicy Sauce is not at all like your conventional Tabasco sauce. With this East-Asian-style hot sauce, you can add just the right amount of heat and flavor to dishes without overpowering them. It’s very much like a bold-flavoured teriyaki sauce, and its uses go far beyond being a zingy dipping sauce. Among its ingredients are pear concentrate, red pepper, garlic, onion, original Tabasco sauce, and a good amount of ginger, which help make a bold, sweet, and savoury sauce that is the perfect accompaniment for many Asian dishes, be they Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, or Japanese.

     This sauce can be used any way you would use a sweet dipping sauce. What makes it special is its distinctive ginger zing that I’ve rarely found in a hot sauce. Add it to a stir-fry, splash it on chicken, beef, pork, or liven up your soup or anything you want to add a sweet and bold edge to. Think of this as an all around savoury sauce that you can use the way you would use Tabasco, but keeping in mind that it’s quite sweet. If you love the taste of ginger and garlic, and enjoy adding a bit of sweetness to your dishes, this is the sauce for you.

Until next time … Keep it spicy!

Puckerbutt Honey Bonnet Hot Sauce is a testament to the fact that sometimes sauces with very few ingredients can be the best-tasting ones. With only a handful of ingredients, this product packs a unique, flavourful punch like no other on the market.

Burns & McCoy Exhorresco Hot Sauce

November 07, 2018

 Now I don’t say this very often about a hot sauce, but Exhorresco by Burns & McCoy is simply phenomenal. Before having tried this sauce a few years back, I had never thought that a sauce could have such a unique flavour profile while having such a scorching burn.

Karma Sauce Funken Hot Hot Sauce

November 01, 2018

 This hot sauce is downright TASTY! This is quite a unique product, as there are very few sauces on the market that use the brown chile varieties. These ones are generally slightly hotter than the red varieties and have a more rich and darker quality to them.

Not hot, but very flavourful

I first discovered this product in your shop when it was located on Sussex Drive in the market area and have enjoyed it ever since. It's not a spicy product, but it has an excellent flavour and is a great accompaniment to all sorts of meats - beef, pork, and chicken - particularly when grilled on a gas or charcoal BBQ. It seems to come and go on the shelves, but I hope to see it stocked more regularly.

The best hot sauce!

We travel to Belize often but when we carry-on we can’t bring back the hot sauce. We use it on everything and love the variety they produce.

Thankful that we can order online and get super fast delivery!

I love this sauce

good taste and easily pourable on any surface. I will definitely buy again.

Definitely the hottest

I can't really speak for the flavour as the heat obliterated any there might have been, but these were hands down the hottest noodles (and hottest thing in general) that I've ever had. If you're looking for a solid spicy food challenge, buy this before it's sold out!

Product exceeded expectations.

Thank you so much for having the BEST Selection anywhere.
