Maritime Madness Ultimate Giv’er Hot Sauce

April 09, 2019

Maritime Madness is a company from Prince Edward Island which offers a variety of gourmet spicy products. They also grow their own hot peppers for their sauces. We carry many Maritime Madness products including plenty of hot sauces as well as a hot honey, bacon brittle, ghost pepper brittle, and a zesty seafood sauce! Ultimate Giv’er is the only product from Maritime Madness I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying thus far, but given how good this one was, I am definitely looking forward to trying some of their other products in the future! Feel free to browse what we offer of theirs on our website and come try out some samples at our stores!

Ultimate Giv’er is not only a HOT one, but is also vegan-friendly, soy free, gluten free, and delicious. It’s a sauce that all serious chile heads should try out for its scorching, fresh heat. It’s actually the hottest sauce in their lineup! This one has much of the flavour coming from the pepper mashes mixed with a zingy taste from the fresh garlic. Water maintains the liquid consistency of the sauce and also ensures the balance of all the ingredients. The vinegar not only preserves the sauce but also offers a light tang that we come to expect from most hot sauces. The pungency of the vinegar is rather subtle, so it does not overpower the taste of the peppers, which is always good! Habanero peppers bring some smoky-citrusy heat while the earthy ghost peppers and fruity-tasting Carolina Reaper peppers add some blistering spice. This is a pretty deadly combination, making for a multi-layered yet very enjoyable pepper flavour. Fresh garlic adds a rather present zingy taste with the salt making it a well-seasoned product. The final ingredient is xanthan gum, a thickening agent found in numerous hot sauces on the market.

In terms of heat, I would give this one a solid 8 out of 10. It’s not quite in my top 10 hottest extract-free sauces ever, but it’s still hot enough that I would only recommend it to serious chile heads. If you don’t have that great of a tolerance for spicy food but are really looking for something to add one drop of at a time to your dishes, then by all means Ultimate Giv’er is a great place to start! Anyone looking for a good, flavourful burn should pick this one up!

Add small amounts of Ultimate Giv’er to all kinds of dishes. I urge you to use it very modestly, adding only a couple of drops or even a teaspoon (if you’re brave enough) in your marinades, wing sauces, dips, salsas, noodles, rice dishes, and more. Add a little to your mayo, hummus, sour cream dips, ranch dressing, and even ketchup for a sweet and fiery heat! Try a bit on the side of your plate along with no matter what you’re eating and see how its flavour can blend nicely! If you go overboard with how much you put on your food, it’s surely going to have you saying: HOLY FRIG THAT’S HOT!

Come by one of our store locations and give Maritime Madness Ultimate Giv’er Hot Sauce a try!

As always, Stay on the spicy side of life!

Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost Hot Sauce

November 06, 2019

It’s a robust sauce with a smoky, tangy, and savoury flavour profile. What sticks out the most to me are the smoky Guajillo peppers and the cumin. It really is a marriage made in heaven! Water gives the sauce a more liquid consistency and balances out the acidity and salinity while...

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.
