Puckerbutt Honey Bonnet Hot Sauce

November 12, 2018

   Puckerbutt Honey Bonnet Hot Sauce is a testament to the fact that sometimes sauces with very few ingredients can be the best-tasting ones. With only a handful of ingredients, this product packs a unique, flavourful punch like no other on the market. It’s among my favourite sweet-heat sauces, and, in my opinion, the tastiest scotch-bonnet sauce. It has such a strong aroma, flavour, and a kick that may surprise you. Each ingredient complements the other, making for a flavour profile that I have been really wanting to see in a hot sauce. Not only are there very few cinnamon-based hot sauces out there, I don’t believe I’ve ever come across a honey-cinnamon one before. If you’re a fan of this savoury flavour combination and have a decent tolerance for spicy food, this one is a MUST TRY!

   I’m sure many of you have already heard of Puckerbutt Pepper Company. It’s home to the world’s hottest pepper: Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper! From South Carolina, USA, Puckerbutt grows and harvests a huge range of hot peppers and are producers of some of the finest spicy products on the market today. Here at Chilly Chiles, we have a wide range of their products including hot sauces, mustards, salsa, seeds, powders, and more! I’ve also written a review of the Puckerbutt I Dare You Stupit Salsa. Give it a read if you’d like!

   A mix of peppers, including scotch bonnets, and other unnamed peppers, bring a good level of heat and a fresh, sweet taste. I’d say that this is decently hotter than other scotch bonnet hot sauces on the market which tend to combine the peppers with mango or other fruits. The vinegar adds a slight tang and ensures the freshness of the sauce is preserved. The floral and woodsy taste of the honey is very noticeable, and not adding an overwhelming amount of sweetness. It’s not very sweet for a honey-based sauce. There’s an initial hit of sweetness upon tasting which fades away gradually as the heat and cinnamon sets in. The cinnamon, with its hot, aromatic, and pungent taste, is rather pronounced.

   In terms of heat I would give this one a solid 6 out of 10. The heat of the scotch bonnet and other peppers offer a good burn, one that is a bit hotter than your conventional scotch bonnet sauces. Because the sweetness of the honey is not very strong, it doesn’t bring down the heat of the chiles very much. Some sauces which are quite hot, but also very sweet due to sugar or fruits, have this effect. It has just enough honey for the taste and sweetness to be noticeable with the fiery heat coming out in full-force! I would only recommend this one for those who can at least handle the heat of a strong habanero-based hot sauce. As with many sweet sauces, we tend to underestimate the heat level. For this one, it’s best you don’t underestimate it too much and keep in mind that it is a HOT one!

   Honey Bonnet goes great on all kinds of foods as part of a marinade, glaze, or dipping sauce! Try it in fruit salsa, burgers, noodle or rice stir fries, tempeh or seitan sandwiches, on candied bacon, chicken wings, oven-roasted sweet potatoes, butternut squash mash, pork tenderloin, and more! Believe it or not, it’s also amazing on many of your favourite desserts and sweet snacks! It’s delicious on ice cream, yoghurt, frozen yoghurt, and pancakes!  It’s also a perfect dip for spring rolls, egg rolls, dumplings, chicken nuggets, tofu bites, mozzarella sticks, and other hors d’oeuvres to name a few!

   Come by one of our store locations and give Puckerbutt Honey Bonnet Hot Sauce a try! It’ll blow your mind!

As always, Keep it spicy!

Secret Aardvark Drunken Jerk Marinade

May 13, 2019

The Drunken Jerk Marinade is savoury, intense, spiced, and salty. This intensity is mainly due to the fact that its main use is that of a marinade, and thus has a high concentration of flavour. Therefore, it’s not necessarily the kind of sauce you would douse on any dish.

Tabanero Hot Sauce

April 30, 2019

Part of the reason for this is because of its amazingly versatile, fresh flavour. It’s also a big hit, I believe, because it is rather mild for a habanero-based sauce. This makes it an enjoyable product for pretty much anyone who at least enjoys lower heat-level hot sauces!

Slightly warm

No doubt about it this stuff is hot which is surprising, considering I eat the last dab redux on a daily basis. Same with hellfire fear this, I feel that da bomb final answer is way hotter than both of those. But it tastes disgusting.

Los Calientes

It's the most pleasureful pain I've ever experienced. And I'll do it over and over.

Nice Salsa

Don't buy any, save it all for me!

Still the best

I was there at the old Red Fox liars table when you first introduced this stuff , I am 74 now and still think it is the best in North America, had a feed tonight for supper with my Keith's and wings thanks for the best sauce around and thanks for all the great memories at the Fox

Taste is good, but no heat

Great flavor but I'd rate the heat more like a 2/10
