Opal Sunshine

Opal Sunshine is small business run by one woman and her family. Making all natural, vegan hot sauces, all featuring  her own signature blend of bonnets and hab. Yet what sets them apart isn’t that, since most sauces are vegan, intentionally or otherwise, and many other utilise the scotch bonnet and habanero peppers.

No, what sets Opal apart are her roots in belizean cuisine. A food culture, influenced by mexico and the caribbean, with a particular love for chilli products that are fresh, tart and heavily spiced.

The three products that Opal Sunshine sent me were perfect examples of this. An original sauce that focussed on uniquely belizean spices. A lime-centric one, perfect for pizza and pasta dishes. And a yellow one that contained mango but focussed far more on its ginger and caribbean peppers.

All three were excellent and all three highlighted that unique style of cooking, which I’ve never seen from another UK producer. But not one of them was what I expected it to be.

So, while I thoroughly recommend that you check the company out at https://opalsunshine.com, I also highly suggest that you read my reviews first.
