Howler Monkey Hot Hot Sauce

September 24, 2018

   Have you been looking for a sauce with a decent amount of heat, balanced flavour profile and exotic tang? You need look no further than Howler Monkey Hot Hot Sauce! Chances are you’ve seen the Howler Monkey Original Hot Sauce on the last season of Hot Ones, the show on First We Feast’s YouTube channel which has exploded in popularity over the past couple of years. The guests always liked the taste of the Original! I decided to try the Howler Monkey Hot because I tend to go for the hotter sauces… which I’m sure comes as no surprise to you. This sauce is made with ingredients common to Caribbean-style sauces, with the taste of the peppers and the tang from the vinegar being the most predominant flavours. Along with the Caribbean vibe that this sauce brings out, it’s also all-natural, gluten free, and free of any thickeners, preservatives, or added sugars! Not only can you taste the freshness of the ingredients, they also use only local produce from their home state of Florida!

   Distilled vinegar is the classic main ingredient in this kind of product, adding some pungency and a liquid consistency. Red habanero peppers and red scotch bonnet peppers are what bring the citrusy and subtly sweet fire in this one, complimented by a healthy dose of garlic and onions for that nice zing we all love in Caribbean hot sauces. The mustard is rather subtle, but the flavour is still noticeable. The cumin, black pepper, and turmeric add light earthy, warm, and piquant notes, working perfectly with the mustard. It’s clearly a very pleasant-tasting sauce, with no single ingredient overpowering another. This makes for a balanced flavour profile which is demonstrative through its many possible uses!

   In terms of heat I would give this one a 3 out of 10. With the classic habanero and scotch bonnet combination comes a kind of flavourful heat that most would categorize as medium-high on the heat scale. I have enjoyed a myriad of hot sauces thus far, so I’ve built up a rather high tolerance. To me, this sauce is rather mild, and I’m sure that most other hardcore chile heads like myself would agree. For the average consumer of hot sauces and spicy food out there looking to get into Caribbean-style and other similar-style hot sauces, this would be a great addition to have in your fridge! It could also serve as the perfect introductory sauce to those who have never enjoyed the heat of a habanero or scotch bonnet pepper.

   Use Howler Monkey to enhance all kinds of meals! It’s perfect on eggs whether in an omelet, scrambled, hard-boiled, over-easy, or in a sandwich. With its noticeable heat and fresh tang, it can liven up your fried rice, grilled chicken or tenderloin, wings, sandwiches, Bloody Marys or Caesars, stews, curries, jerk chicken kebabs, shrimp, prawns, scallops, burritos, tempeh or seitan dishes, and so much more! It’s got that classic taste that I’m sure many of you (if not all) would appreciate!

Come by one of our store locations and give Howler Monkey Hot Hot Sauce a try!

As always, Keep it spicy!

This sauce is different, delicious and versatile. I highly recommend it.

Placed my order, super easy. Love the website. Received my package quickly and everything was great. Would recommend 100%. Over all 5 stars

The best creole seasoning!

Good and Hot

Pretty hot. Heat build and stays with you for a few minutes. While the flavor is good, I find it a little plain.

Not allowed to run out of this one.

Spicy yet very flavourful. A great addition to foods. Particularly like it when added to my lunch wraps.
