    Voyage to Flavor Island

    Voyage to Flavor Island

    Pickapeppa Sauce takes us beyond the borders and into the Caribbean, where this sauce has been perfected on the island of flavors. You may find this sauce nestled in the hot sauce aisle of your favorite grocery store, but there's a uniqueness that makes Pickapeppa stand out from its spicy peers. This is one of the most interesting experiences to date and we can't wait to share the flame rating (or lack thereof) on this peculiar condiment.

    Once You Go Black

    Once You Go Black

    For the first time in our show’s history, we revisit a previously reviewed brand. El Yucateco is back with the newest addition to their hot sauce lineup. We experiment with their Black Label Reserve Hot Sauce as it challenges our senses beyond taste and smell. There is much to overcome when it comes to this sauce but the flavor leads the way to a flame rating in which you may or may not agree.

    How To Become Number One

    How To Become Number One

    What does the #1 habanero hot sauce in the U.S. have in common with local hot sauce start-ups and enthusiasts? They were once an up and coming hot sauce brand, too. Mexico is more than the post-pandemic hang out spot, it is home to some of the most amazing hot sauces in the world and El Yucateco Hot Sauce is one of the fortunate sauces to go from the kitchen table to worldwide distribution. Instead of believing the hype, we put El Yucateco’s Red Hot Sauce to the test and the flame rating is...

    Keeping it All in the Family

    Keeping it All in the Family

    Deep in the heart of Texas we discovered Siete Traditional Hot Sauce and this health-conscious brand has claimed to conquer flavor without sacrificing good nutrition. This Whole30-approved sauce is part of a family-owned food company dedicated to setting the stage for better meals through grain-free, gluten-free offerings. 

    Could their traditional hot sauce be the change the hot sauce game needs?

Rogue Darkness ,

Hot Sauce is Everything!

I wasn’t sure what to expect when going into this podcast because it’s about hot sauce, but I’m glad I gave it a chance! Very well produced with amazing sound quality! Keep up the amazing work!

Educational, Insightful and Fun — Fired Up!

I never thought I’d get so much out of a podcast dedicated to the landscape of hot sauce — but here we are!

Recognizing food as a “conduit of culture” is exactly what Dantrel is doing here in the podcast — not only does he highlight nuances of food culture, regions and the hot sauces that are available in our world but also highlighting the leaders and notable flavor-pioneers who are bringing the heat.

Storytelling, personality and education all wrapped up in one short, well produced episode. On point!

The Brown Girl in Beijing ,

Now I’m Hungry

I don’t even rock with hot sauce like that just because I never really have it. But this podcast makes me want at least a lil sumn sumn on me at all times! It’s fun and engaging and bite-sized and I’m into it!
