Pineapple Twins

Surprise! It’s not an East Coast Chilli Co item for today’s review.

I thought about posting one today but, after cracking open a bottle to try, I realised I wanted to draw comparison with another upcoming item. One that I’m not able to showcase until early next month.

In the mean time, we’re going to take a look at a couple of items that’ve been waiting for a good moment to be discussed.

The leeds-made Pineapple, Scotch Bonnet & Sesame Oil Sauce from The Crafty Bustard and Sierra Nevada’s Salsa Picante De Chipotle-Piña, imported from either spain or california.

Honestly, I’m not really sure. The company mention both places and my spanish isn’t good enough to tell where they’re actually based.

Both are pineapple based sauces, though, and both are sweet ones with a bit of a savoury twist. Yet they both achieve that in quite different ways and with very different end results.

After all, one’s a tropical sauce with sesame and the other’s a smoked jalapeño sauce that seems like it’s going to be using its fruit for sweetness and be something of a barbecue item.

We’ll find out if that really is the case in a moment.

Screaming Mango

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.

Tropical Blood

Greetings, spice lovers, and welcome to the last of my Dragon’s Blood reviews.

There is one more item from Chilli Pepper Pete that I’ll be looking at but it’s not a part of their main line. It’s a wild stand alone item that I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait for because today, we’re looking at the Dragon’s Blood Hot Fruity Sauce.

A far brighter bottle than most of the others. Maybe even than the neon product art of the Green Salsa.

Pineapple Primate

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.

Birthday Blood

Surprise! It’s a sauce review on a thursday!

Why? Because it’s my birthday.

A year ago today, I tried what is probably the hottest extract-based sauce in the world and, because I really don’t know what’s good for me, I figured I’d make a tradition out of it.

I bring you Chilli Pepper Pete’s Dragon’s Blood.

Not one of the sauces that have gained the name in later years but the original. The legend. The old extract sauce I still hear tales about to this day.

Fruit and Fire

Hello again spice lovers, this week we’re going to look at another of my sample sauces from ChimouliS but this one’s a little different.

Instead of being hot like their Scotch Bonnet sauce or fruity like their Pear one, today’s offering is both. It’s their Pineapple Ghost Chilli sauce.
