High River Sauces Foo Foo Mama Choo Hot Sauce

January 10, 2018

High River Sauces Foo Foo Mama Choo Hot Sauce High River Sauces Foo Foo Mama Choo is a delicious yet deceptively spicy hot sauce. When you try it, you get an immediate burst of natural sweetness and fresh flavours. You then slowly realize your mouth is catching fire! I enjoy making my friends try this sauce because every time they initially tell me that it’s really tasty and has a decent kick to it…but then their smiles eventually fade and they run for the nearest glass of milk or soda. This is because of the Carolina Reaper’s delayed burn effect. This pepper makes for a high level of heat and with its floral-fruity flavour, works perfectly with the other ingredients. There is one thing no one can deny, this sauce is very hot, yet very fragrant, refreshing, and one of a kind.

   Foo Foo Mama Choo has a more complex flavour profile than you may think. It’s sweet, bold and aromatic along with a slight tang and a hell of a kick! The roasted red peppers and fire-roasted vine-ripened tomatoes create a sweet, and deep natural boldness to the sauce which is the most prominent flavour point. The sweetness from the sauce comes not only from the aforementioned ingredients but also from the brown sugar. This all adds to the deceptively delicious nature of the sauce. The onions and garlic add a hint of sharpness and robustness. They complete the sauce in perfectly complementing the ginger root, which adds a freshness and pungency. The red wine vinegar used in this sauce is a great choice given all the ingredients present. This is because it's a fruity vinegar with a noticeable sweetness that pairs well with the acidity. I love when companies decide to use different kinds of vinegar or sources of acidity as a natural preservative, especially when they work well with the other ingredients. Another interesting, yet fitting choice for this sauce is the use of white pepper, with its distinctly earthy and floral flavour, which adds to the unique flavour profile of this product.

   In terms of heat I give this one an 8 out of 10. Many would find this sauce quite spicy but don’t let that turn you off from giving it a try! This is an exceptional sauce. Even if you cannot handle beyond a 6 out of 10 heat rating, I still highly recommend it for its unique taste if enjoyed in smaller amounts. This sauce has multiple uses. Enjoy it as a table sauce or add it to a marinade for any kind of meat or fish. Add it on eggs, pizza, stir fries, wings, pasta, tacos, salads, burritos, grilled veggies and more. I have also used it as a dip for egg rolls, spring rolls, dumplings, and French fries!

   I highly recommend you check out the whole lineup of products by High River Sauces. They are all top-quality! Come by one of our store locations and give High River Sauces Foo Foo Mama Choo a try!

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.
