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.
Hey folks, it’s that time of year again. Christmas is fast approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you’re panicking over what to get your friends and family. So, this thursday, we’re going to go over everything I’ve had in the last year, seeing what would and wouldn’t make great gifts.
It’s time for my yearly recap.
But, this year, we’re not going to go by month. We’re going to go by theme.
So feel free to skip ahead to the bold heading that interests you or your gifts’ recipients most.
Happy thursday, folks, today I’ve got another inedible review for you.
Just last week, I received a free goodie box from Flaming Licks, the hot sauce subscription service previously known as Lick My Dip*. I opened it on film and you can see my first reactions to all the items inside here.
But this post is a slightly more in depth look at the product that Flaming Licks provides. The box itself.
So here’s something I’m sure you’ve all seen by now:
Chilli Bob’s Farm’s and Tom Smith’s Plants’ dragon’s breath chilli. A tree-like plant that produces some small but supposedly extremely hot peppers with an average scoville rating of almost two and a half million.
Compared to the average heat of the current record holder, the carolina reaper (between 1.4 and 1.57 million, depending on when you take the record from), this is a massive step up. It even beats out the reaper’s 2.2 million peak.
Such a stunning heat difference that it has been all over the news and in social media feeds across the globe.
Hello again everyone, today we’re going to take a look at Chilli Pepper Pete.
A company known for their extreme heat sauces but one who also have plenty of flavour to offer. And they’ve sent me a mix of the two, with their garlic and herb-based “Zhoug” and both ends of the heat spectrum that is Dragon’s Blood.
Today’s main post is the first to contain a hot product with an expletive in its name but it will almost certainly not be the last. Many chilli products use such strong language for the novelty value and, while a lot of them don’t have much else going for them, I cannot avoid better items just because of less than family friendly names.
I am, however, willing to make a few compromises to keep any of these swear words from cropping up unexpectedly.
