Add a little spice to your life! Our original sauce, and winner of 18 national awards, Sultry Sauce is the pinnacle of heat and flavor. You can cook with it, put it on a sandwich, or add it to anything for heat that builds with every bite.

Note: For the purposes of this review, I tried this sauce a couple of different ways: first, I used it as a condiment on a fried egg, then, I tried it as a dip with some tortilla chips. Next time I’m in the grocery store, I might pick up the ingredients I need to try my hand at making this Spinach Dip.
What I Think:
It took me a while to get around to writing this review, mostly because this stuff is so tasty that I don’t think about taking the time to write my thoughts about it while I’m eating it!
As a condiment – in small amounts to minimize the heat and therefore be able to appreciate the flavor in addition to the burn – it really adds a lot of flavor and dimension to an otherwise humble fried egg. In addition to the HEAT from the habañero pepper, there is a slight sweetness that I taste from the carrots and mandarin oranges.
These other ingredients also give this sauce some thickness, making it quite nice to serve as a spicy-hot salsa-esque dip for chips. And it is as a salsa that this Sultry Sauce really stands out for me. I can really taste the sweetness from the oranges now. This isn’t all about the heat – although there is PLENTY of heat to this sauce – and it doesn’t immediately set your mouth aflame. Your taste buds get a chance to explore these other interesting flavors in the sauce, while the heat builds, and then BAM! It kicks you right in the mouth.
My Final Thoughts:
If you read my article about the arrival of the “Some Like It Hot” box, then you’re probably aware that I had wished that Foodzie had put the local favorite Secret Aardvark Habañero Hot Sauce instead of this sauce that was – at the time – unknown to me. That being said, I am really happy that I got to try something new, and this IS really very good. However, I don’t think I’ll buy this particular sauce again (although I might try some of their other sauces) because I want to stay loyal to the local Aardvark.
