Pain is Good Moruga Masala Hot Sauce

October 13, 2019

Pain is Good by Original Juan Specialty Foods Inc., now Spicin’ Foods, is easily in my top favourite hot sauce brands out there. They have so many different hot sauces, snacks, and BBQ sauces, among other spicy goods! I’ve reviewed a number of their products in the past. Namely, Da Bomb Ghost Pepper Salsa, and Pain is Good Harissa Hot Sauce among others. I’ve consistently enjoyed all of these products. I highly recommend you browse everything we offer from this company. Check out my past reviews if you want to learn more about the company and the wide variety of products they offer!

Moruga Masala is simply delicious. It’s got a flavour I have very rarely found in any other product on the market. If you like a good amount of heat and love the bite and warmth of Indian spices, then you have to try this one. It has a flavour profile which is bold, fragrant, exotic, and tangy. 37% of the sauce is made up of Red Moruga Scorpion Pepper mash. Being one of the world’s hottest peppers, it packs quite the punch. It also contributes in the flavour department with its fruity taste! Water balances out the consistency and acidity level of the sauce while the distilled vinegar preserves it and adds a pretty noticeable tang. Spices give a prominent Indian flavour which I absolutely love. To me, these spices are what make this sauce have its unique flavour. If I had to guess which kind of spices they included, I’d say there’s probably cumin, coriander, Garam masala, cinnamon, and possibly cardamom. What a fragrant mix! The sugar is barely noticeable. I personally never really noticed much sweetness at all in the sauce. Salt ensures that the product is well-seasoned with the garlic powder adding a slight zing at the end.  

In terms of heat, I would give this one an 8 out of 10. It has a very powerful, robust taste that hits you right away with so many notes, equally matched by a solid heat that quickly builds. It’s very concentrated in terms of heat and flavour, so it’s best that you watch out with how much you put on your food! This one is definitely NOT for beginners. If you can at least somewhat handle Ghost pepper based hot sauces and are up for the challenge, this is a great pick. It’s an especially good choice if you love Indian spices or Indian food in general. Its explosive, exotic flavour is sure to satisfy (and ignite) many palates!

Add some Moruga Masala to all kinds of food! As mentioned above, having this sauce with your rice, samosas, vegetable or meat curries, naan, and other Indian dishes is a must! It also works great with most Mexican or Asian food! The fragrant, warm spices used in the sauce, along with the taste of the Scorpion Pepper complement a variety of meat, poultry, seafood either as part of a marinade, dipping sauce, or glaze! You can also try it along with any number of plant-based protein dishes such as tofu, seitan, or tempeh! There’s tons of flavour in every drop! One of my personal favourite ways to use Moruga Masala is to add about a teaspoon of it into my hummus. It’s so darn good. You can also try a couple of drops or even a spoon (if you’re feeling brave) in your mayo, tahini, salsas, chutneys, or sour cream dip!

Come by one of our store locations and give Pain is Good Moruga Masala Hot Sauce 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.
