Tasty Heat’s Magma Hot Sauce

December 30, 2018

   Things are warming up in Winnipeg with Tasty Heat’s! This company has a whole diverse lineup of delicious hot sauces, newly arrived at our stores! Check out all their products on our website if you’re interested! If you love the fresh taste of tomatoes, you’ll love this one. This is the kind of product where flavour is meant to dominate over heat. I myself only found this sauce to be a little spicy once I used a large amount on a single food item. In this sense, most chile heads will be able to use it rather liberally on all their favourite dishes without worrying about any kind of scorching burn. I will say though that this sauce is highly addictive. I finished the bottle in under a week not only because it wasn’t all that hot, but because I had been waiting to find a tomato-based hot sauce such as this one!

   Its flavour profile is rather light; it has a nice sweet and lightly tangy taste with only a medium heat level. It’s very much like a zesty tomato sauce with a hint of exotic spices. Ghost, scotch bonnets, and Thai chiles add a decent flame to this sauce, making for a pretty balanced heat profile. Overall the burn is of medium intensity, with a very subtle earthy, citrusy, and crisp flavour. Tomato is the most prominent ingredient in the sauce. It not only adds fresh sweetness but also a light acidity which is complemented by the vinegar. The spices, though not specifically listed, most likely include caraway, among other spices. The palm honey provides an additional touch of sweetness to complement the tomatoes and hot peppers. Salt of course ensures that the sauce is well seasoned, and it is indeed!

   In terms of heat I would give this one a 4 out of 10. It’s rather mild for a ghost pepper hot sauce. It does also include two other chile varieties, but even they don’t contribute too much to the overall spiciness of the product. Because of this, I would highly recommend it to even those who are only into jalapeno or habanero-based sauces. It’s really not too much of a jump from the sauces that most chile heads are used to consuming. Even if you only enjoy a mild heat most of the time but you love the taste of tomatoes and spices, you should totally give this one a shot!

   Add this sauce to any tomato-based dishes including pasta, chilis, curries, shakshuka, fish, braised short ribs and more. Put it in your grilled cheese, mussels and clams, ratatouille, Spanish rice, meatloaf, on your pizza, and in soups! It’s a very versatile product. Feel free to use your imagination!

Come by one of our store locations and give Tasty Heat’s Magma Hot Sauce a try!

Keep it spicy in the new year!

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...

Hellfire Blueberry Hell Hot Sauce

October 23, 2019

This is one of my all-time favourites. It’s most probably my favourite super-hot fruit-based hot sauce I’ve ever had the pleasure to enjoy. When we usually hear “fruit-based hot sauce” we assume that makes its possible uses rather limited. That is not the case with Blueberry Hell, as I will discuss in more depth further down.

Brutal, very hot, taste was really bad

This was just stinking hot, tastes hotter than a lot of other sauces but the heat over powers you and it is not a great taste, was good for a hot wing challenge but I would use as recommended on the bottle to just add heat to something like soup or chili if you want some extreme heat, even then there are much better choices!

Not as crazy as I was expecting but many of my friends can barely handle it :)

It really burns, the heat kicks in and keeps going up when you breathe :)

I cried... I had hiccups..... but I was expecting it to be kicking my ass more.

No ring of fire :)
