  • Are all the sauces hot?
    No. Sweet Pepper Mild and Rhino #5 have very little to no heat.
  • Do you use capsaicin extracts?
    No, we do not use extracts in any of our sauces currently. The heat all comes from the peppers that we make the sauces from.
  • Do the owners actually respond to questions and emails, or is it just a bot?"
    Yes, the owners actually respond to questions and emails. We actually want to hear from you!
  • How do your heat categories work?
    Because most sauces don’t have an official Scoville rating we have simply categorized our sauces as mild, medium and hot. Although spiciness can be different for everyone (we all experience spicy differently), we try to make it clear how spicy something is based on these categories and our own experiences. Mild is for the beginners and you’ll hardly find any spiciness in this category. 1-2 flames for mild Medium is where you would find something like Sriracha. 2-3 flames for medium Hot is of course... HOT. 3-4 flames for hot Very hot is for the very brave. We use hotter peppers and more of them to bring the heat 5-6 flames on the very hots
  • I’m not experienced with eating spicy food, but I would like to try a hot sauce. Which one should I start with?"
    Our advice would be to start with a sauce from the mild or medium category. Here you’ll find hot sauces that are not too spicy for beginners. They are usually made with milder peppers or lower percentage of spicy peppers and have additional ingredients that help mellow out the heat.
  • Is hot sauce healthy?
    Most hot sauces are very healthy! However, we do put flavor first and sometimes that means adding ingredients that most might consider unhealthy. For example our sweet sauces contain sugar, and the sauces we've designed to be wing sauces contain butter substitute. On every product page you’ll find the exact nutritional information.
  • What foods are good with hot sauce?
    What foods can’t you use hot sauce on is a better question! We sell a variety of hot sauces and you can always find a fitting sauce for every dish. It’s safe to say that hot sauce is the most versatile condiment of all. From pasta to hamburgers, soups to currys, we eat hot sauce on everything. When you pair the right hot sauce with the right dish it will only enhance the flavor of your dish. So keep on trying different hot sauces and you’ll be amazed by how well you can pair them with your everyday food.
  • Do I use hot sauce while cooking or do I use it as a table sauce?
    Hot sauces are generally used as a table sauce. That means: you have already cooked your food, placed it on a plate and to add some extra flavor you add hot sauce. Just like you might do with pepper, salt or other sauces like ketchup. Of course you can also use it while cooking, adding hot sauce to your cooking can bring out new flavor profiles not only in your cooking but in the sauce as well. Just keep in mind you may lose a little heat depending on how the food is cooked
  • Do I have to store hot sauce in a fridge?
    We recommend storing sauce in the refrigerator after it has been opened to help preserve the sauce's flavor
  • How can I improve my tolerance for spicy food and hot sauces?
    There is only one way: eat more spicy food and use hot sauce more often. This makes your tongue and the rest of your mouth get used to the sensation. Once you are used to a certain level of spiciness, you can try hotter food/sauces. Think of it as leveling up.
  • What do I do when my mouth is on fire?
    Buckle up buttercup! All you can do is wait until it’s over. Milk helps, but depending on how hot the sauce is it may only be a temporary aide. Eventually though you’ll just have to wait until the feeling goes away, but more importantly: try to enjoy the burn!
  • Do extremely hot sauces affect my taste buds?
    No. The component in chili peppers that makes them hot, capsaicin, tricks the receptors on your tongue and makes you feel as if your mouth is on fire. In fact its just the receptors on your tongue producing a false alarm and sending it to your brain. It doesn’t make the pain any less, but your taste buds are not in danger. Do watch out with touching your eyes though, and any other sensitive areas on your body, because that will hurt a lot.
