How’s it going everyone? I know we just had a holiday post for the lunar new year and valentine’s day isn’t until next week but, please, allow me to get a little ahead of schedule with today’s review. Because, as is often the case, my special showcase for the fourteenth of february is a limited edition that you’re going to want to grab in advance.
And, this year, it comes from the Screaming Chimp:
A delightfully jammy-looking hot sauce by the name of “Let Me Be Your Phantasy”, which they put out late each january and which holds a certain special interest for me, since it features the rare ají fantasy chilli. One which I’ve only come across once before.
Plus it just looks so inviting!
Hey folks, it’s a few days late but I decided to make you something for white day, after all.
And, of course, it was always going to be late. I don’t do recipe posts on thursdays.
This weekend, though, I’ve made something thematically appropriate for you all to have a go at: Chimp chocolate chip cookies, using the leftovers from my recent review.
Truth be told, they didn’t come out exactly as I’d planned but they were so soft, cakey and tasty that I had to share them, regardless.
Konnichiwa yet again, spice lovers, and welcome to another mildly japanese-themed post. This time, a tuesday review, featuring one of my favourite holidays and one of my least favourite companies.
You see, I’ve tried all of the Screaming Chimp’s main range (as you can find links to in my sidebar) and I didn’t hate them. In fact, I quite liked a fair few of them, I just didn’t find that the chilli flavour came across very strongly. And they took issue with that.
I don’t dislike their products but I’ve come to hate talking about them because it always ends in a twitter argument that I’d really rather not be a part of. All because I’m trying to give an honest opinion.
But today, I think things are going to be a little different. Because their limited edition sauce certainly is and their chocolate is perfect for a white day post.
Finally, with my reviews all out of the way, I’d like to say a few last things about my work with the Screaming Chimp.
Hey guys, it’s time for the final one of my Screaming Chimp sample sauces, their Mango & Papaya.
And, just like last month’s, this one forgoes the brand’s main simmered tomato base in favour of a 42% mango content, supported by papaya and pineapple for an equally strong but much smoother fruitiness.
Hello again everyone and welcome back to another tuesday sauce review.
Over these past months, we’ve looked at most of the Screaming Chimp’s sauce range. Some have been hot, some have been mild, some have been sweet, some have been smokey and some have been just a little bit sour.
They have, however, all had one thing in common, aside from their very similar packaging. A fruity base made mainly from simmered fresh tomatoes.
Today’s sauce bucks that trend in favour of another fruit. Pineapple.
Hey everyone, we’re looking at the Screaming Chimp again.
This sample’s of another smokey sauce, meant to combine the heat of their Stinger with the beautiful flavour of the last one we looked at, the Vic’s Ol’ Smokey.
Happy tuesday, heat eaters, I’m back from Reading Chilli Festival. In the coming months, there’ll be all sorts of wondrous new things featured here but today it’s time for something a little less new.
Something just as exciting, mind you. It’s my favourite of the Screaming Chimp’s product samples.
Last time we heard from them we took a look at their hottest “Stinger” sauce but this week we’re going back down to the very bottom of their heat scale to try out Vic’s Ol’ Smokey. A sauce that uses smoked paprika, instead of chillies, for its flavour but does back it up with bird’s eye heat.
Welcome back everyone, today we’re looking at another Screaming Chimp sauce. Their hottest, The Stinger.
This week, spice lovers, we take another look at the first of my Screaming Chimp Samples and I figure, why not start with the basics? Their original sauce. The one that got their company going.
