Attention: This is an old post reviewing a pair of products, one of which has since received significant updates. It will remain on my site, for posterity, and is still relevant to anyone interested in the Cornish Chilli Company’s Barracuda. However it does not reflect the latest version of Dorset Chilli Shop’s Dorset Punch. For up to date information on that sauce, please refer to this new post, instead.
Hello again, everyone, it’s tuesday and, while we did recently look at a piña colada sauce, it wasn’t a new one. It was a re-review of an updated product.
So, today, I’d like to take a look at a couple of similar items that we haven’t seen before, from our old friends Dorset Chilli Shop and the Cornish Chilli Company:
Both claiming caribbean influence – As one might expect of such pineapple, coconut and rum-based sauces – yet appearing quite different from one another.
Through the necks of their bottles, our view of the sauce is altered slightly by glass but we can still see that the Dorset punch is a rather paler, peachier shade than the earthy, golden-brown Barracuda. And its thinner, almost watery appearance shows a fair few pinkish-red chilli shreds that would be much harder to spot in the Cornish Chilli Co.’s creation.
I’m very curious to see how they’ll differ, outside of the bottle. Especially having seen their wildly different ingredients lists.
