It's always exciting to try out some new hot sauces. We received two new bottles to taste, and will elaborate upon our reactions. The first is a sweet jalapeno sauce by Skipper's treat. The second, by Crazy Bastard Sauces, uses habanero and tomatillo. Since matters of taste are quite subjective, there will be a second opinion on each sauce this time around.
Hell Flakes by Todd Wilbur’s Top Secret Recipes, is a blend of five types of dried chile peppers, for use as a condiment to spice up your bland food, or in your cooking.

This Tabanero brand of hot sauce really has its act together. When I first received the bottles to review, I had the mistaken impression that this was some offshoot of the Tabasco brand. Their labeling, packaging, and website are realy professional. Rather, they are a company based out of Boca Raton, Florida. The name is a catchy combination of Tabasco, and habanero. This sauce uses all natural ingredients, and habaneros from Tabasco, Mexico.
Chile pepper plants are a tenacious bunch. They not only imbue the face-watering heat that we love, but are keen on devouring an abundance of the most direct sunlight.

I am a real lucky human to have received Lucky Dog’s new line of hot sauces to review. They sounded appetizing based purely on the description alone, and did not disappoint once I gave them a try. This is a real solid lineup of sauces that has a unique “fire-roasted” flavor.
The Lucky Dog brand was founded by California-based Scott Zalkind, who turned his hobby of 6+ years into widespread production this summer...
