Staff picks: our favourite hot sauces at the moment
In this Staff Picks we will shine our lights on our favourite products of the moment. Mostly hot sauces, but every now and then we choose other spicy products that you can get on our webstore. So scroll down, get to know us and find out which products (and why) have been chosen as our favourites at the moment. We update this list regularly.
Heartbeat Camp Hot Sauce – Even before I tasted this hot sauce, I was already a bit of a fan, because camping is something I really like to do. Plus, the camping desing on the label is almost identical to a tattoo I have on my arm. But the most important thing is of course the sauce itself and fortunately it is also top notch, as we have come to expect from Heartbeat. Savoury, quite sweet, a little acidic and even a bit of smokiness. Super all-round and a new essential that goes on my list of items that need to be taken with me on camping trips.
Queen Majesty Manzano & Serrano Hot Sauce – This limited edition hot sauce from Queen Majesty may be a bit too summery for this time of year due to the strong citrus flavors, but sometimes you just need that when it gets cold outside. In addition, this Manzano (a type of pepper) & Serrano hot sauce is not only delicious with summer dishes. This sauce works especially well in combination with seafood such as shrimp and oysters. But also try it with spaghetti al limone, for example. You will not regret it.
Tochbearer Mushroom Mayhem – Tochbearer is a brand that exclusively makes good sauces and this new flavor is no exception. The Mushroom Mayhem is a delicious savory, umami hot sauce due to the beautiful mix of different mushrooms such as shiitake and portobello. This sauce also has quite a bit of heat because of the habaneros and scorpion peppers. Highly recommended if you like very hot sauces with a lot of flavor.
Melinda’s Habanero Wing sauce – Is there a better combo than hot sauce and chicken wings? Probably not. This creamy habanero hot sauce from Melinda’s is an ode to this combo. The consistency is perfect for wings and it has a nice acidity, is deliciously savory and has a pleasant heat. For the price (€6.95) you simply cannot pass up this large bottle of sauce (355ml). By the way, if you want to get the hotter version of their wing sauce, you should get Melinda’s Ghost Pepper Wing sauce.
Piko Peppers Habs hot sauce – Since we introduced Piko Peppers a few months ago, the brand has gotten off to a flying start in our online store. And rightly so, because they make absolute top hot sauces. This Habs is perhaps the least unique hot sauce, because it is “just” a habanero hot sauce, but a very good one. A truly hot sauce with a fresh habanero flavor that you can add to anything without it completely overpowering the flavors in your dish.
