Spice Up Your Food with Hot Sauce!

If you like your food spicy, sassy and saucy, you might want to check out websites such as Hot Sauce Mall so you can find some refreshing new treats to buy for yourself and your family. Make your dinner pop, sizzle and even singe a little when you try some goods from this type of brand.

With choices such as hot, hotter and hottest choices, you can only win at this game. You can also choose from various Caribbean and Caribbean-inspired sauces, many pepper sauces, Louisiana hot sauces, Mexican hot sauces, North Carolina hot sauces, garlic hot sauces and mustard hot sauces. If all of that is too serious, try some of the humorous hot sauces available. If you can laugh after these blends, your taste buds are probably impermeable anyway, so you may as well go for it and enjoy all of them.

If you are new to the pepper game, make sure to check your tolerance with a sampling of your hot sauce of choice before you go all out and douse your dinner with half the bottle. Check your sauce's Scoville Heat Rating to get some idea of what you're getting yourself into before you take the plunge.

Find well-known brands, as well as local favorites and specialty blends. Some of the brands you might recognize include Dave's Gourmet, Blair's, Mad Dog, Ass Kickin', Melinda's, El Yucateco, Marie Sharp's, Crazy Jerry's, Cholula, Gator Hammock, Matouk's, Ring of Fire, Heartbreaking Dawn's, Da Bomb, Iguana, and many other popular firecracker brands.
