What people are saying
There's a lot of 'novelty' hot sauces that have insane heat but no flavor or bad flavor or you don't know what the flavor is because you can't taste anything besides searing flesh. I probably would have thought this one was a novelty hot sauce if I saw it in the store because of the 'Xtreme' in the name and the big red X on the cover. Don't be fooled; this is the hot sauce you've been looking for. It is pretty hot but not enough to be called 'extreme', let alone 'Xtreme'. And it's a good kind of heat, not a biting or stinging heat but a warm, satisfying slow burn. It kind of slowly builds up so you may be all right for four or five bites then suddenly have to run pour a glass of milk. Most importantly is the way the heat complements, rather than drowns out the flavor. And the flavor is the real star of the show. It's somehow both familiar and unique. Vinegary but not as vinegary as Tobasco, Garlicky but not as garlicky as Tapatio. Sweet but not as sweet as Sriracha. It's the goldilocks hotsauce: just right. Probably will be my go-to from now on.
Absolutely Amazing. This sauce has the right amount of heat, but with a great flavor after the initial bite. The consistency is great as well. I would encourage everyone to try it!
This is my favorite hot sauce of all time. It packs plenty of heat with just as much flavor. For most people a drop or two will do you. For those of you who love heat you’ll smother your food in it. It hurts so good.
Great sauce to spike up ketchup for chicken tender dip or mix a few drops into a personal sized dollop of raspberry jam to taste then slathered on your buttered morning breakfast English muffins or toast for that a.m. heat fix!
This is a genuine gourmet sauce with great flavor and stands in it's own flavor catagory. A very nice combination of sweet and heat. This is a great sauce for ribs and wings IMO. The heat is definitely there but doesn't overpower or kill the flavor of what you use it on. Since sharing it with my friends, I'm ordering a case!
This is by far one of the best, most flavorful sauces I have had in a long time... What is so good about it is; yes it is hot but that part of the sauce is secondary to the FLAVOR!!! Anyone can make a hot sauce with extreme heat, however to incorporate this much flavor is an art! The heat does not assault your tongue or the rest of your mouth. This sauce gives a ton of flavor. THe best way to describe it is that this sauce is sophisticated with so many levels of flavors that it really excites your palate! The heat of this fabulous sauce waits a few seconds after you swallow and then it sort of sneaks up on you and reminds you that this really is a hot sauce! It doesn't scorch your throat or the back of your mouth, it's not a slap on the back of your head either.... as I said it is sophisticated and yes even subtle... I love it!
Got this product for my dad for his birthday he absolutely loves it.
I wouldn't say this is a novelty hot sauce; they don't go for a complete cartoonish label and the flavor of this stuff is incredible. This sauce was definitely crafted with some pride. I'm no heat champion, and it's plenty hot, but it's also very easy to start off with a small amount in any recipe/on any food and add as needed. I'll be ordering more.
I was first introduced to this company through their ghost pepper sauce which I still love and can use on anything. I had a harder time coming to love this sauce. I loved the taste of it but somehow it didn't 'work' on a lot of foods. It is very sweet and dominated by the black cherries. Instead of vinegar you have bourbon. Again, it's delicious it just doesn't work everywhere. The reason it still gets give stars is because on those things that it does work, there's nothing better! This is the most delicious ice cream topping I've ever had (I think that's cause there's no vinegar). I also use it on chicken burgers instead of ketchup and slather it on turkey or pork. It's so good on these things that it has become a necessity. 'can't live without it' = 5 stars
What flavor! I bought them all, now I can't decide which is my favorite. I guess I'll have to expand my recipe collection to accommodate my new sauces. Thank you so much for the amazing selection of sauces, professionalism, and speedy, perfectly packaged box of brilliant goodness!!!
