LITS OG Boodoo Hot Sauce

March 06, 2019

   LITS stands for “Lost In The Sauce” and is an up-and-coming artisanal hot sauce company out of Toronto. They stress the importance of fresh, natural ingredients as well as the fact that hot sauces should be enjoyed on pretty much everything! The other sauce of theirs we offer here at Chilly Chiles is LITS Burning Mango, and I can tell you it’s also downright amazing! We will also soon have their Lime Chili Sauce which we haven’t sampled yet, but is sure to be just as amazing as the others!

   OG Boodoo is dedicated to a late friend of the guys at LITS, Brandon Boodoo. This delicious, fresh-tasting island-style hot sauce has a lingering heat, touch of sweetness, and savoury flavour. It’s so good that I had actually drunk it out the bottle at one point! Believe me, I don’t do that for just any sauce. It has an addictive element, and I believe this comes from the freshness of the ingredients and how they all blend together so harmoniously.

   The hot pepper blend in this sauce is made up of fresh scotch bonnets, habaneros, and Jamaica hot peppers. This mix makes for fruity, smoky, and citrusy notes all coming together and blending perfectly with all the other ingredients. Carrots and onion add some sweetness and chunkier yet smooth texture one would expect from an island-style hot sauce. Tomatoes add a light acidity and another little touch of sweetness. The lime adds a fresh citrus tang that many of us love. Water ensures the liquid consistency and balance between all the ingredients, while the white vinegar also accomplishes this in addition to bringing in a light pungency. The salt and spices help with making sure it is seasoned to perfection.

   In terms of heat I would give this one a solid 5 out of 10. It’s got a very decent heat for a sauce using these kinds of peppers. This is an easy pick for anyone who loves brands like Marie Sharp’s, Iguana Hot Sauces, or other habanero heat-level sauces. I would even recommend it to those just getting into hot sauces. I say this because it’s always important to go for good quality products, even if they may test our limits. If you love habanero or scotch bonnet hot sauces, or simply any island-style sauce, you absolutely need to give this one a try!

   Add LITS OG Boodoo to enhance all kinds of dishes! It’s incredible on your eggs, salads, chicken, beef, pork, or seafood marinades, rice dishes, stews, sandwiches and curry dishes. Add it to your Bloody Marys or Caesars, shrimp, scallops, burritos, and tempeh or seitan dishes to name a few.  The fresh heat and savoury tang will have you craving more and more!

   Why not come by one of our store locations and give LITS OG Boodoo a try?

As always, Keep it spicy!

Stomach pains over and over...

I would recommend this wholeheartedly but after my experience I'd say do not, for the love of God, eat this thing unless you crave insane amounts of recurring stomachs pain and spiritual regret.

It's fine at the beginning, tasty actually with a nice initial mouth and throat burn but the satanic embers begin about 2-5 minutes after and flourish with terrible abandon for HOURS afterwards. I had to lie down for an hour and thought the cramps had finally finished their unrelenting grinding assault.

How wrong I was.

When I foolishly thought the unending pain had subsided I drove my 2 young kids to a birthday party, only 15 minutes away. Halfway through though I experienced an oncoming annoyance I felt my will could overcome. Mild sweating initially, followed by a steaming, angry swell deep in my intestinal tract up to my gut and my soul. I tried with great effort to subside the inevitable but alas my strength faltered and failed epically.

My daughter insisted we turn around, head back home or to a hospital as she was well aware of my turmoil, palpable and terrifying for one so young and naive of the stupidity of a grown adult's need for acceptance of accomplishment, however idiotic it may seem.

In the end we made it and I'm glad we did but it was an experience I would never wish upon my worse enemy.

10/10 but please, for the love of all that is Holy don't eat this abomination unless you're comfortable being extremely UNCOMFORTABLE.

Great Product & Customer Service

Great service and great product! Got this for my boyfriend who loves spicy food (I didn't try it because it would most likely reduce me to tears) and he LOVED it. Customer service was great! 10/10 would order from again

Surprising heat, with flavor!

The Spicy Shark's sauces are all made in a similar state of mind: heat without sacrificing the flavor. When I first opened the bottle, I immediately picked up banana(!), then Dijon, then a hint of pineapple. I used it in a pineapple-based chicken curry and despite all the spices from the curry itself, the sauce still came out on top adding its fantastic Dijon flair, backed with the creeping kick of ghost pepper. This will probably be a bit mild for chili heads but packed with flavor. Definitely going to become a mainstay for my curries!

Black Garlic

This sauce is amazing, was expecting it to be hotter being reeper. But the burn lasted longer then other sauces I have tried. Great sauce definitely will buy again.

My son loved the bottle I brought home from St. Lucia. These are for Christmas.
