Hey guys, it’s coming to the end of may and my birthday’s just under a month away.
You know what that means. It means extract sauce! Sauce that’ll melt my face off with a single cocktail stick.
There’s only one problem. I haven’t been sent any to review lately.
So, this year, I have to pick my own poison and I just can’t do it. So, to make things both easier and more fun, I’m going to let you guys have a bit of a say.
I’m going to let you pick from three company’s unnaturally hot concoctions – Ones that I’ve been eyeing up throughout the year – and choose the one that kills me. All you have to do is read the rest of this post and vote in the poll at the end.
Assuming, of course, that you’re ok with strong language.
So, what have I been window shopping? Well, today’s first contender is the House of Chilli in the isle of wight:
Their “Savage” hot sauce is made with 6.4 million scoville extract and comes in a cool, black dropper bottle shaped like a skull but seems to be selling itself on its garlic content as much as its heat.
I’m intrigued but haven’t been able to find out much more about it so let me know if you’d like to.
Then we have the heavyweight, the big name, Wiltshire Chilli Farm:
They bring two sauces to today’s table and also boast a high garlic content but they don’t make quite as big a deal of it as the House of Chilli do. They’re not trying to sell their sauce on extreme heat and flavour. They’re simply trying to make it taste good while it burns your mouth off.
In the case of their “Godslayer” and “Regret”, the main selling point by far is the heat and they’re made using 6.4 million extract for the Godslayer and 12 million for the Regret. From what I hear, the Regret might even exceed 3 million scoville itself!
But that’s not all! Today’s third contender is a very unlikely one. A barbecue sauce from Fairley’s Fine Condiments in newcastle.
This “Frightfully Hot BBQ Sauce” is described by its makers as a “super spicy meat syrup… that will titillate your taste buds and sizzle your soul” but nowhere on their website does it mention its ingredients. All I really have to go on are amateur video reviews were the list is read aloud and the unwitting victim has been floored by the stuff.
So, if you have an interest in seeing me suffer through one of these companies’ wares, let me know which in the little strawpoll that I’ve set up. You’ve got two weeks.
