Not So Thai

Hey folks, it feels like I’m doing this almost every month now but here’s another two product review. A comparison, so much as there can be one, between two very different takes on a thai-style sauce.

One is a long awaited item from Devon Chilli Man, seen on my twitter midway through last year, and the other is one of the many I got from Grim Reaper Foods. Yet, despite being based on a thai sweet chilli, it’s not the last of the freebies from their thai-themed box.

No, that’ll have to wait just a little longer because Devon Chilli Man is the one with a green jalapeño sauce today. A green thai sweet chilli that he calls the Jalapeño Creaper, not because he can’t spell but because it also contains carolina reaper.

While the Grim Reaper shows us his Alchemy, another highly unusual sweet chilli sauce made using the lemon drop or aji limon chilli. A citrusy pepper that turns the sauce to gold, just like the alchemist’s dream.

Both are going to be at least a little stronger than your average thai sweet sauce but their unorthodox chilli choices also bring a unique flavour and appearance to the table.

Midnight Red

Greetings, fiery food fans, and welcome to the first of my ECCC sample reviews.

Today’s offering from the East Coast Chilli Company is probably their most unique item – A rich, black, honey-based sauce that matches wonderfully with the equally dark label that adorns its bottle.

It is, of course, as its elegant red text tells us, their Midnight 21.

East Coast Chilli Co.

Hello again folks. I wasn’t going to post anything today but, mere moments before typing this, three sauces arrived at my door:

Freebies from the East Coast Chilli Company – One of their choice and two of mine. I must say, I’m excited.

I’ve had my eye on these guys since their appearance in the Lick My Dip box – Before it even changed to Flaming Licks – but I’ve been swamped by freebies and festival finds for a while now. I’ve not had chance to give them the attention they deserve.

Thanks to their generosity, however, I’m now left with no choice but to squeeze them in. You’ll be hearing about these sauces shortly.

Nutty Butters

Hey folks, happy pancake day!

Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to write a special blog post for my favourite food-based holiday this year.

I wanted to but, when I found out when the event was, I was too ill. In fact, I still am, to an extent.

Not ill enough to impair my brain function, anymore. I can write again but there is one thing that the remnants of my cold still have over me – I can’t trust my sense of taste right now. Or my sense of heat, for that matter.

So, instead of me writing something topical and special, here’s a post I pre-prepared about one or two of my weirder finds. A couple of the more out there products that I promised I’d be showcasing this year.

Today, I have a pair of peanut butters for you:

Nuclear Meltdown

Hello again spice lovers, today’s product is for the extreme.

And it’s one that I’ve mentioned before, during my (now outdated) look at the upcoming challengers for the “world’s hottest” crown.

2017-07-07 12.46.50

This is Critical Mass “Ultimate Hot Sauce”, the strongest non-extract product that Burning Desire Foods produce and one of their very few that use more than one type of chilli.

Topping the Charts

Change of plan, everybody. We’ve been through a lot of hot stuff over the last year and a bit but I’ve still managed to build up quite the backlog of review products. So, as of today, I am no longer going to be dedicating the last tuesday of each month to a recipe.

Instead, every tuesday will be a review day but don’t worry, I’ll still give you something tasty to cook up. Only it’s now going to be on the final weekend. The saturday or sunday upload slot that I’ve previously saved for the very occasional bonus dish.

And this gives me a little more flexibility with what I can show you, as well.

Previously, I’ve tried to keep at least close to one superhot item, one hot one and one mild or medium thing a month in order to please as many different heat tolerances as possible but now, with an extra slot opened up, showing off something crazy that won’t suit the vast majority of people doesn’t have to take the place of one of those.

Today I can finally show you one of the all time hottest natural sauces that I’ve ever had. A natural
