Standard label, similar to the rest of the chilli factory market line. It has a comical image on the front, catching people's attention. Its bright label colour stands out on the shelf. It is a glass bottle with a thick top, making pouring smaller amounts more difficult
It has an apricot orange appearance with visible red and black herbs and spices in the concoction, giving it a wilder colour. It is thick, but it pours well, I would compare the consistency to sweet chilli.
It has initial tones of mango, but also signatures of garlic. i read that it has salt, but I could not detect that.
Very strong mango taste that catches you off guard. The garlic is also very strong in the mixture. It almosts acts like a seasoned garlic sauce. The mango mixes decently with food. It is quite strong on its own. Applying small amounts will solve the strength problem, but finding what it suits is another. It applies its mango flavour to the food like an ingredient would.
For a shelf item, it is considerably hot, even for a chilli head. It has a punchy attack and a slow decay. Its release is also long, but not as long as other really hot sauces. Similar to the taste, applying small amounts will even out its heat.
Its a unique sauce that brings a very particular taste and heat to the table. Its heat to taste ratio is pretty even but its application is limited, unless you want that mango taste. I made mango chicken one day and i used some of that sauce on my plate and it fit just fine. Personally, i dont particularly like it and i wont get it again any time soon.
